On the way, you can enjoy the breathtaking views in comfortable & warm lounge with panoramic windows. You’ll find a selection of food and drinks for purchase onboard.

Two people share each sled and dog team. One is the “musher” (driver), and the other can sit back and enjoy the ride. You can switch places midway during the 12 km dog sledding trail. Depending on snow conditions, we will spend approx—1 hr 30 min to complete the trail. 

You do not need any previous skills to mush a husky team. All you need is reasonable physical health and an eagerness to try something new.

After the dog sledding adventure, we will serve you a hot meal in a traditional North Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After relaxing and warming up, you can board the bus back to the city and reflect on a memorable adventure.
