Several Husky dogs that are part of a larger dog team
  • Enjoy an exhilarating ride on a sled pulled by huskies led by skilled mushers.

  • Admire winter landscapes, including forests, fjords, and snow-covered mountains.

  • Keep an eye out for the appearance of the magical Northern Lights.

  • Enjoy a hot drink and homemade cake served in a traditional Sámi gamme.

Join us on a mini polar expedition complete with a pack of husky dogs and sleds. After the bus ride to Kvaløya, we’ll change clothes and footwear before hopping aboard the sleds.

Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy stunning views of the ocean and surrounding mountains as the huskies pull your sled over the frozen landscape.

With clear skies during the Polar Night, the only light comes from the stars and the moon. With any luck, perhaps the Northern Lights will make an appearance. To guide us through forest and across fields, we’ll wear headlamps, adding to the ambience of this little adventure.

After the ride, you’re invited into a Sámi gamme (a wooden hut) where you can warm up next to the open fire with a hot drink and a slice of homemade cake. Here, you’ll be able to learn about a typical working day at the Wilderness Center and find out more about dog sledding.
