Husky Safari - Experience Tromsø
You will be greeted by 120 happy Alaskan Huskies, waiting for you to run and cuddle! Drive your own team of dogs through the scenic landscape. We provide warm thermal suits, winter boots and gloves to keep you warm during the dog sledding adventure.
After a short explanation (in English!) of how to handle the dogs and sleds, you will set off in pairs. One will be the “musher” (driver) and the other sits in the sled. You swap places during the trip.
The huskies love running on the hilly tracks and wilderness of Breivikeidet valley, but you need to be part of the team and help them up the hills. It’s a fun experience, but also a physical workout.
English-speaking guides will lead groups of four teams and help you through the experience, which lasts 30 to 45 minutes.
