After a scenic 40-minute bus ride from Tromsø, you’ll arrive to a warm welcome at the winter wilderness camp in Breivikeidet. The staff will greet you and introduce you to the resident friendly Alaskan huskies who each have their own names and personalities. You’ll see that the dogs are excited to meet you so feel free to give them a cuddle or three.

Your musher will then go through some safety instructions for your dog sledding experience, before hopping aboard the sleds and getting ready for your guided adventure. Sit back in the sled and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Breivikeidet valley, surrounded by steep mountains and views towards the Lyngen Alps.

After the sled ride, we’ll return to the camp to get to know more about the lives of these Alaskan huskies. Your visit is topped off with a hot drink and homemade cake next to the open fire in the traditional Gamme hut.
