Sit in a 2-person sled powered by a team of huskies
Hear insightful commentary about dog mushing from your guide
Play with the dogs at the husky farm
Includes use of thermal suit, and hot drink with cake
What to expect
Depart from your Tromso hotel in a comfortable, climate-controlled coach destined for a husky center.  Feel your excitement heighten as you hear the raucous barks of more than 120 huskies at the snow-smothered farm. On arrival, greet the professional mushers (sleigh drivers) and get acquainted with the adorable dogs, all of who are eager bound across the frozen wilderness.  After listening to a short safety briefing and donning a thermal suit, climb aboard your sleigh, choosing to sit down or stand on the runners, and set out to explore the enchanting landscape. Feel your adrenaline levels surge as the huskies break into a fast-paced sprint and the cold Lapland air brushes against your face.  Watch snow-covered scenery whiz past. After approximately 1.5 hours of riding, return to the husky farm and relax with a hot drink and sweet cake in a fire-lit lavvo tent.  Revitalized, return to your vehicle and reflect on your magical excursion during the journey back to Tromso.

Amazing experience!
Mar 2020
It was an extremely enjoyable experience! The guides were knowledgeable and friendly, and provided clear instructions prior to the sledding session so that we were all prepared. It was also great to see that the dogs were well-loved, and seemed to enjoy sledding as much as we do! We did the mushing ourselves, and the initial part involves going uphill, which may be abit tiring for some people. But apart from that, the whole experience was AMAZING, and so were the scenery of the artic wilderness. Will definitely do this again if we were to visit tromso again in future!

Great family experience!
Mar 2020
This was by far our family's favorite activity - despite the kids being "meh" about it prior. Our kids, including younger son, could've spent the day on the trails with the dogs. If you're nervous or hesitant because you have kids, don't be! Make sure this excursion/activity is on your list.

Highlight of my trip!
Best thing I’ve ever done! Honestly if you’re in tromso and love dogs- go. They’re such happy friendly animals who absolutely love their jobs. The staff are amazing and tell you exactly what to do. You’re in total control and are out on your own and it’s so so much fun. I’d give 10 stars if I could. So nice to have so much fun and with dogs who are so well cared for. Highly recommend - thanks for a brilliant day. (Also, id have bought Storm home if I could have)

Experience of dog sledge
My daughter and myself with few others went for a day for dog sledge last Sunday. It was a great experience as we had a very experienced guide. We went for about 1.5 hours up the hill. We certainly recommend this experience

Pure joy on virgin snows
Mar 2020
I can`t think of a single most rewarding way to spend the day other than experiencing dog-sledding with Tromsø Safari. And I am writing this while well aware that several operators in the area offer similar trips, but the deep love and respect shown by their partner Anne-Stine at Tromsø Huskies certainly stands them apart. She knows each and every one of her 141 beautiful, enthusiastic, energetic, healthy and fit Alaskan Huskies. Humans and dogs interact with each other truly as one big family, one where mutual affection and understanding prevails.

On top of that, the landscape where the sledding trails have been opened is stunningly beautiful and varied, with some uphills (…push!), downhills (yee-hah!) as well as flat stretches (relax and enjoy the stunning view). Yes, weather-wise we had a day to die for, and that was the icing on the cake, but in any weather (the real Arctic feel, anyone…?) the fun and joy of dogsledding with those darling huskies will be one oft he most uplifiting experiences of your life. Had there been a "repeat" button there and then, I would have pushed it right away. E

something you have to try
Feb 2020
The tour was well set up and the guides which were all friendly and helpful.

After about 45mins on a coach you get to the location , you go straight up for a safety briefing and told all about what to do and not to do. Then you get put in pairs, if your solo like me you will get put with another solo person or a guide.
You then put on your winter suite and if you want boots which they provide.

You are given a bit of wood with a number of your dog team on it.
You go outside and find your team of dogs and sleigh and I had about 10mins to fuss the dogs and take a few photos.

We then set of, I was paired with a guy who didn't understand any English so that was challenging.

We spent just under 1hr on the sleigh out with the dogs going along a track through some wooded areas. The views were good despite the heavy snow and you swap a couple of times.

It was an amazing experience and fun, although sometimes a bit messy/smelly on the track at times but that's to be expected.

The dogs are amazing and love to run but you do need to get off quite a lot and give them a hand up hills so you do need moderate fitness. But that is all part of being a team.

When you get back in you get 10mins or so to fuss the dogs and get a couple more photos then you go and get changed back into your own clothes and then down for a quick cup of hot chocolate and cake then it back on the coach to Tromso.

I would highly recommend this trip although a bit more time to fuss all the dogs would of been nice but obviously with the amount of people doing this activity throughout the day time is limited. And the dogs welfare is the only priority.

So thank you for this special experience.

I can’t speak highly enough of Tromsø Safari. They were always very professional and friendly towards us throughout our stay. For a few of our tours we had a guide called Ellie. She was so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. There wasn’t anything that was too much trouble for her. She is a real asset to Tromsø Safari. The Northern lights trip and Huskey dog sled rides were very very good and even though they are expensive i felt we got real value for money.
