This tour is conducted by Visit Bardufoss. Join us on an adventurous and fun journey with dog sledding, only two hours from Tromsø and Narvik!
Dog sledding has ancient traditions in the polar regions. The relationship between dog, human and sled has been very important to human history, as it has made it possible to inhabit these cold and harsh areas of the north. The sled dogs, the huskies, are today used in sled dog racing. Our dog sledding experience will teach you how to drive the sled and what it takes to be a musher. You will work close to the huskies and experience the intimate relationship between the sled dog and the musher. The Bardufoss Region has a long winter season, perfect for dog sledding! In summer you can experience dog sledding on wheels (see separate activity).
In this dog sledding experience you will be two persons on one sled: one sitting on the sled while the other acts as a musher, controlling the dogs and the sled. Our tracks are easy to navigate. You have to be in a normal condition to participate.
