Tjenestebeskrivelse

Join us and explore the wild local nature of Tromsø. On this trip we will teach you the basics of dogsledding and how to enjoy a full night of winter camping in tents. This is an excellent chance to experience the beautiful Aurora Borealis. On this trip you get the opportunity to be a musher for a day and ride in wild trails with your own sled and team of powerful huskies. Together we travel through beautiful landscape, leave roads and society behind. After a while we find our campspace where we assemble the tents, and prepare the dogs for rest. When everything is ready you will be able to enjoy a hot meal by the campfire. If you are lucky the northern lights might make an appearance where you get the chance to gaze up on the open sky. When morning arrives, the camp is to be packed down and the sleds be prepared for the travel home. As we return to the dog yard the dogs will be fed and you will get to say farewell to your new best friends. Along the way you will be able to take pictures to share with your friends and family. Some parts of our trails can be steep and difficult, which means that the trip is recommended for adventure seekers and is suitable for everyone with great fitness. We advise you to not book this trip if you suffer from back pain, epilepsy, heart problems or if you are in the later stages of pregnancy.
