Full description

Join this authentic experience at the wilderness center Camp Tamok, a 90-minute scenic bus drive away from the city center of Tromsø.

Upon arrival at the camp, you will first receive warm winter clothes and other required gear for this dogsledding activity. Your guide will then give thorough safety instructions and a practical demonstration on how to steer your own sled.

Once you are ready, you will embark on your journey: Two people will share one sled and a dog team. One is the "musher" (driver) while the other can sit back and enjoy the ride. (If your group includes children, please kindly note, that each child must be accompanied by an adult.)

You will get the chance to switch places midway during the 10-12 km dog sledding trail. Depending on snow conditions, you will spend up to 1 hour 30 minutes to complete it. After the tour, you will be served a hot meal in a traditional Northern Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder's tent. After relaxing and warming up, your daytime sledding adventure has come to an end and it will be time to board the bus back to the city center of Tromsø.

    A truly wonderful day dog-sledding. Great organisation from beginning to end with fantastic, friendly staff. The camp was stunning, super clean with a lovely atmosphere. Sledding was such a brilliant experience with the most breathtaking scenery. The dogs loved to run! They were very well cared for and were so friendly. We were able to spend as long as we liked with them at the end of the sledding. Our lunch was a delicious, traditional lamb stew served with their special bread and hot drinks. We were seated in a teepee with a warm fire. A huge thank you to all the staff but a special mention to Lisa, my sledding partner and Myla for making my daughters 21st birthday so special! I cannot recommend this activity highly enough.

    We were given warm clothes (boots and overalls) that made us look very professional. Our crew was very excited...I mean the dogs. The guides informed us well about everything and took care of the trip. Great dogs pulled our sled, who already knew the way in Camp Tamok. We had a lot of fun. Thanks. We recommend.

    Been on my bucket list for years, last weekend it finally happened. It was a fantastic experience, the dogs love to run and are certainly not bad here. Enjoyed the tour and the beautiful view. You will end up with some muscle soreness, but it is doable, and the guide will always help if needed. I would recommend this to everyone!
