Great dog sledding experience with lovely company owners that guide and teach how to drive the sled. The tour is done in small group sizes which makes it a very personal and unique experience. The nature and view is wonderful during the tour. After the sledding, we had a nice meal in a restaurant of a family-owned hotel and were able to learn a lot about local people and culture from the restaurant owner.

Amazing dogsledding tour! Very kind guides - it’s a family owned company and the father and his daughter were our guides. They teach you how to drive the dog sled and take you on a very fun sledding time with the dogs. The place where you do it is lovely - 1.5/2hrs adventure and a very nice lunch afterwards. Very well organized transfer from / back to Tromso - not too long of a drive either - like 1h30 max. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend activenorth.no! We were a group of 5 adults and 3 children ages (5 and 2y/o). We did day-trip dog sledding; Tomas was very professional and knew everything about it. He patiently answered every question I had through email and call (because most of the dog sledding tours don't accept 2y/o children). He recommends a private tour, so if the children get cold, we can quickly go back (which is what we like about it) From Tromso (where we stayed), everything was arranged by Tomas (the bus ticket was paid for and included in the tour). The meeting place was Scandic ishavshotell (08:45 am), from there the bus to Skibotn was so lovely, and it was comfortable (even the bus driver and the conductor were friendly). We traveled 1hr 45mins with our eyes full of scenic view of beautiful mountains and fjords. Around 11 am, we arrived in Skibotn, where they warmly greeted us and had our snowsuit changed (thermal suit, boots, and gloves were provided)—followed by a 15mins instruction by Tomas on how to be a musher, and then we met our team of Huskies 😍 We finished our dog sledding with our hearts full of good memories ❤️ After the sledding, they brought us to a restaurant that served us a very delicious salmon soup, the bus to Tromso picked us up there. Thank you, Activenorth, Tomas, and all the staff that made our once-in-a-lifetime dog sledding experience worth it!!! We hope to come back when my 2y/o daughter can have her team of huskies and be a musher herself 😍

This was a great event to remember. The dogs had a lot of power for the tour but they were also good for cuddling. We booked a 1 3/4 hr self-driving tour. We never did this before but the owner was pretty friendly and competent - he explained everything very good and clear. Everything was very professionally organized and it was a lot of fun for us.

We highly recommend using Active North. We went dog sledding during the day.Tomas is very knowledge and friendly. Nothing was too trouble he was very happy to answer any questions. On arrival we were given over suits to wear. Gloves etc . A short trip in the mini bus to the sledding area. We got to meet the dogs before setting off. The scenery on the dog sledding was stunning . Tomas took photos and videos which he sends to you afterwards. 😀 Once we returned after dog sledding we were able to help unharness the dogs and help put them away in their kennels ... (after a stroke and lots of cuddles with the dogs) We when boarded the mini bus and was taken to have lunch at a restaurant. Can't recommend this trip enough. Tomas is Very friendly and a very good laugh. Thank you so much Tomas for a great day out 👍
