Evening Husky Sled Ride in Tromso
From US$227.28
Overview
Experience two classic Norwegian activities in a single tour: a husky-drawn two-passenger sled ride and a peek at the famous Northern Lights. It’s possible to do it all in one evening when all the details are taken care of, including provided thermal suits and traditional fish stew dinner. You'll learn about the tradition of dogsledding in Norway, as well as the science and mystery behind the phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in the evening at a central location in Tromso, where you'll board a comfortable bus for the ride to the countryside, about 30 minutes away. At the dog yard, get outfitted with a thermal suit and boots to fight off the Arctic air. After a brief introduction, an experienced musher takes you on a ride into the Norwegian winter landscape.
Listen to guide commentary and keep watch for the elusive Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). You’re in an ideal location to see them, far away from city light pollution. Learn about the mystery behind their appearance and what conditions make for the best viewing.
Back at the yard, spend some time visiting with the pack of dogs, including puppies being trained for the trade. Then head inside for a dinner of traditional bacalao (cod fish stew; vegetarian option available) before heading back to town.

Husky sled ride is amazing!

We had wonderful experience! Our rather extreme weather conditions made it even more memorable!! We learned a lot about huskies, cuddled and played with them and ended our evening with a warm meal and tea. Highly recommeded!

Lucky to see the Northern lights

This was a fun experience for my wife and I, and we were lucky enough to have the northern lights appear during our sled ride. It was run very professionally although it did feel relatively impersonal compared with our previous night's Aurora-watching trip with a...More

Over priced for a ten min sledge ride

This is well overpriced for what is effectively a ten minute sledge ride - also the clothes given to wear looked and smelled lile they haven't had a wash or clean in a while. What a rip off Also look out for yellow snow near...More
