We started out as a home for dogs in 1988, since then our passion for dogs and life in the nature has taken us on an exilerating journey. Today we're one of Tromso's leading tourist destinations with over 300 dogs. Our main tours are with the dogsleds but we also have Northern Lights tours and snowshoe rentals.

In the summer we have Kayak trips, a wide range of tours and hikes with our huskies and puppies as well as glacier hikes. We'll provide warm clothes on all our tours to keep you warm while enjoying the Arctic Nature.

We booked an evening winter ride through Hurtigruten. The actual dog sled ride was 25 mins tops, not what we expected for 200 euros per pax. Same price-ride at Kirkenes lasted 2+ hours... Not recommended

Had a fantastic time and learnt a lot about the huskies. The dogs were well cared for which was important for us as a family and they were real characters!

We went for both Nothern light tour and snow walking. Maybe we expected too much for the aurora, turns out its not very well. We thought it will be a chasing aurora tour, maybe we didn't notices before we book. and we understand that also because of the unpredictable nature. While, the snow walking is much more fun than we... More

Dog sledding was something from adventure films and books. It always seemed something so outside of everyday life. Anyway, visited Tromso over the New Year and did the sledding trip with a musher. Started with excellent introduction to the dogs and their lives. Loads of dogs everywhere, all super keen and all super friendly. Did a 45 minute sled across... More

Very good. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Dogs so lovely and great to spend time with them prior to the actual sledding. Keepers seem to know them individually calling them by name. Actual sledding a great experience.

Couldn't wait for this day to drive a husky dog sled. We were not disappointed. This location had the most dogs and the staff made us feel like family. They gave us as much time as we wanted to visit and play with as many dogs as we wanted. The staff was very well informed on the sport of dog... More
