You can also watch the professional sled dog drivers race against each other with the fastest dogs in action. Finnmarksløpet is Europe’s longest dog race, arranged every year in Alta in Norway’s northernmost county of Troms and Finnmark. In addition to the actual race, the buzzing atmosphere in a beautiful wintery landscape will truly make this a memorable experience.
