Dog sledding Wilderness Adventure Camp Finnsnes Tromso Norway HGR 15830
  • Learn all about the history, culture and day-to-day life of Alta, also known as The Northern Lights City

  • Enjoy an exhilarating ride through a winter wonderland on a dog sled

  • Eat and drink around a roaring wood fire in a Sami herdsman’s tent, known as a laavo

  • Get to know the sled dogs that live and work on the husky farm

As we travel by bus to the husky farm, our local guide will tell us all about life in Alta. It’s home to Europe’s longest dog sled race so there are plenty of people here who really know their stuff when it comes to dog sledding.  

When we get there, we have a safety briefing then, in small groups of two or three, whizz along on a dog sled driven by a trained guide. The ride through the winter wonderland will last 20-30 minutes.  

Back at the husky farm, share hot drinks, cookies and tales of our recent adventure around a crackling wood fire in a laavo, a Sami herdsman’s tent. Our hosts will tell us about their extensive experience raising and racing sled dogs and answer all our questions.  

There’s be plenty of time to meet the sled dogs. Don’t forget to take a picture with them – they’re incredibly photogenic, and friendly too!
