After a scenic 40-minute bus ride from Tromsø, you’ll receive a warm welcome at the winter wilderness camp in Breivikeidet. The staff will greet you and introduce you to the friendly, resident Alaskan huskies, who each have their own names and personalities. The dogs will be 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 dogsledding experience. Change into the provided thermal coveralls and warm boots before hopping on 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 of the Lyngen Alps.
After the sled ride, we’ll return to the camp to learn 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 a traditional Gamme hut.
