DAY 2 – Dog sledding
Northern Lights trip: You will be picked up in the centre of Tromso for an adventurous Northern Lights trip with dog sledding in the Tamok valley. Due to the geographical location the climate is drier and colder than in Tromso, thus offering a maximum chance of seeing the amazing Northern Lights.

The trip includes dog sledding activity, transfers, a traditional, hot meal and social time by the open fire in the Sami tent. Also included: insulated body suit, warm shoes, gloves, head wear & head lamp. English speaking guide.
