Owner description: We started out as a home for dogs in 1988, since then our passion for dogs and life in the nature has taken us on an exilerating journey. Today we're one of Tromso's leading tourist destinations with over 300 dogs. Our main tours are with the dogsleds but we also have Northern Lights tours and snowshoe rentals. In the summer we have Kayak trips, a wide range of tours and hikes with our huskies and puppies as well as glacier hikes. We'll provide warm clothes on all our tours to keep you warm while enjoying the Arctic Nature.

I visited the Villmarkssenter together with a group of colleagues. This is really a great team building experience! Some chose to go with an experienced guide, others drove their own team of dogs - what an incredible experience that was! The weather was perfect and the surroundings breathtaking! The dogs at the senter are incredible sweet and friendly, and the... More

Place was quick to get to and seeing the huskies and puppies was definitely worth it. Definitely recommend.

We gave this short afternoon visit but it was fun. Friendly dogs - but loads of them! A peek at a new litter of pups with mum. We were on a sled pulled by one of the "racing teams" and had a great chat with musher about the dogs along with history of the centre, the owner and sled racing.... More

The dog sledging tour is very nice. But please be aware that it is only about dog sledging. So you rather take it during the day. There is very less possibility of seeing the northern lights. They take you to their camp at 6:30 and you leave the camp by 10 max. We did this activity at night hoping to... More

Two Day Dog Sledding Adventure Having visited the dog yard in summer I was inspired to tick one more off my bucket list and try dog sledding. However, being 70 years old, I was concerned whether a two day trip sleeping in a tent would be too arduous. I need not have worried as the guide was superb, the equipment... More

I organized a customerevent for several business connections. We were 12 in total and I had a long talk with the center before we decided to use their offer. It was a few weeks before christmas and there was little snow, so I checked the week before, and they said it would be very a good experience. I knew that... More

One of the best experiences of my life! We arrived at the meeting place at approx 9.30 and drove about 40 minutes to the sledding center. We could hear the excited barks and howls of the 300+ dogs in their yard all perched up on their kennels with their names written below. Our guide was a really lovely girl (can... More
