Dog sledding: 19.00 - 00.00 : Aurora Alps

A dog sled is a sleigh pulled by one or more sled dogsused to travel over ice and through snow. Numerous types of sleds are used, depending on their function. They can also be used for dog sled racing !

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. 


Be part of an authentic Arctic adventure when driving your own team of dogs on the outskirts of Tromsø. You will get some great advice from our guide that will help you to have a wonderful experience as a "musher". And it's a truly heart-stopping moment when the aurora appears in the sky. The lights dance across the sky, changing colour and form, billowing and shimmering. 

You can do this trip as a northern lights tour with fantastic views towards the Lyngen Alps from the dog sled. The friendly dogs love to run and to receive cuddles. In no time, you'll have got a feel for the interaction between dogs and those on the sled. Also, you'll come in close contact with guides, dogs and other participants, which will add a personal touch to your adventure. Two people share each sled and we'll stop along the way to switch "mushers" (drivers). 

The tour will take about 2 hours, including a photostop.
