Evening Husky Sled Ride in Tromso
From $229.04
Overview
Experience two classic Norwegian activities in a single tour: a husky-drawn sled ride and a peek at the famous Northern Lights. It’s possible to do it all in one evening when all the details are taken care of, including provided thermal suits and traditional reindeer stew dinner. You'll learn about the tradition of dogsledding in Norway, as well as the science and mystery behind the phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in the evening at a central location in Tromso, where you'll board a comfortable bus for the ride to the countryside, about 30 minutes away. At the dog yard, get outfitted with a thermal suit, boots, gloves, and a hat to fight off the Arctic air. After a brief introduction, an experienced musher takes you on a ride into the Norwegian winter landscape.

Listen to guide commentary and keep watch for the elusive Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). You’re in an ideal location to see them, far away from city light pollution. Learn about the mystery behind their appearance and what conditions make for the best viewing.

Back at the yard, spend some time visiting with the pack of dogs, including puppies being trained for the trade. Then head inside for a dinner of traditional bidos (reindeer stew; vegetarian option available) before heading back to town.

Husky sledding at a price

We went on a trip provided by Hurtigruten. We travelled by coach to the Vill, one of the largest dog sledding outfits with 300 or so dogs. We were impressed by the well organised set up and so it should be for the price they...More
