Dog sledding in Tromso – Hurtigruten land excursion
Complete your winter holiday experience with a thrilling husky Dog sledding in Tromso!
This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the cruise booking process, with prices and details.
The tour begins with a drive to the island of Kvaloya where you change clothes and footwear, before hopping aboard the sledges and letting the huskies pull you over the frozen landscape; enjoying stunning views of the ocean, mountains and open plateaus. During the polar night, the only light you’ll see will come from your headlamps, the uniquely Nordic starry sky, and if you’re lucky enough, the magical Northern Lights.
Afterwards you are invited into a Sami lavvo (tent) with an open fire and a hot drink. During this trip you will also experience a working day at the Wilderness Centre, where you can learn more about dog sledding and the dogs themselves. Join this miniature polar expedition!
