Dog sledding: 09.30 - 15.00 : Aurora Alps

A dog sled is a sleigh pulled by one or more sled dogsused to travel over ice and through snow. They can also be used for dog sled racingBe part of an authentic Arctic adventure when driving your own team of dogs on the outskirts of Tromsø! You'll get some great advice from our guide that will help you to have a wonderful experience as a "musher".

Dog power has been used for hunting and travel for more than 1,000 years.  Assembling a dog sled team involves picking lead dogs, point dogs, swing dogs and wheel dogs.  Another important detail is to have powerful wheel dogs to pull the sled out of the snow. For recreational dog sledding, Siberian Huskies or Alaskan Malamutes are the main types of dogs that are used because of their strength, speed and endurance, as well as their ability to withstand the cold. 

You can do this tour in the daytime with fantastic views towards the Lyngen Alps or in the evening as a northern lights tour with a dog sled. With our friendly dogs who love to run and receive cuddles, you'll soon get a feel for the interaction between dogs and those on the sled. And through close contact with guides, dogs and other participants, it will all feel very personal too! Two people share each sled and we'll stop along the way to switch 'mushers' (drivers).

If there are no snow at 1 nov. we do dogsledding on wheels in the same area.
