We arrived in Tromso on 20 February & went on the Dog Sledding tour that evening. It was the most wonderful introduction to our holiday, an evening we will always remember. What we liked was the personal, friendly welcome & obvious pleasure which Hege & Per-Thore derive from raising & training their husky dogs. The fun started when we were kitted out in all-in-one suits, boots & gloves - very necessary against the arctic cold! There were only 6 sledges with a driver & passenger on each so a small, friendly group & we were all up for fun. After a short demo on how to drive, we were off into the wilderness, dogs howling & eager to get going. Several times we turned off our head torches as the Northern Lights were displaying & when we were familiar with the route, we drove in the dark .. a unique & thrilling experience. It was a good long hour so a full-on experience (we only fell out once & it was just funny, no injuries). Back at the hut we were warmed up with hot drink & tasty chocolate cake. Then Hege introduced us to some month-old pups - they were adorable, shame we couldn't bring one home. Oh & to top it all off, we had the most beautiful Northern Lights display outside so we felt very privileged. And this was only our 1st night - the rest of the holiday was great but this experience with Arctic Adventures really set the standards high! If we'd had time, we would have booked on another trip with them. It was well worth it - and we didn't feel like paying tourists, we felt like friends enjoying a great experience. Thank you!
