Enjoy the unique experience of exploring frozen Norwegian landscapes on a sled pulled by beautiful huskies. Warm up with a typical local snack in a traditional wooden cabin. An unmissable opportunity!
Husky Sled Ride
Meet in front of the Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromso city centre. From here, you'll be taken to the nearby island of Kvaloya, located just 30 minutes away.
Having reached Kvaloya, throw on the special snow-resistant thermal suits that will be provided for you. Then, wrapped up warm and cosy, you'll be ready to begin your dog sledding experience. Between six and ten huskies will be grouped together with leashes controlled by the guide, and they'll pull the sleds through the icy plains of the island. During the ride, which will last around one hour, you'll cover approximately two and a half miles (4 km).
You'll finish the sled journey back at the original start point, where you'll then be able to visit the husky centre where the animals are cared for. Enjoy 45 minutes of free time to play with the dogs and snap photos with them.
After enjoying the company of the adorable huskies, you'll head inside a traditional wooden cabin to defrost and taste Bidos, a food typical in the Arctic region. The dish is a stew consisting of reindeer meat and vegetables, perfect for warming up in the freezing temperatures (a vegetarian option is available on request).
At the end of your meal, you'll set off back to Tromso where you'll be dropped off at the Radisson Blu Hotel.
Each sled has a maximum capacity of three occupants: two seated passengers plus one driver, who goes on foot.
