PLEASE DECIDE WHICH DOG SLEDDING ADVENTURE BEST SUITS YOUR NEEDS AND LET US KNOW IN ADVANCE.
OPTION NR. 1 - DOG SLEDDING RIDE W/MUSHER: 2 persons per sledge
Climb into your sled, lean back and let the experienced musher drive you safely through the gorgeous mountain landscape of Kvaloya Island. This tour is perfect for anyone traveling with children or in search of comfortable adventure. You will be sharing the sled with a fellow guest and the ride is roughly 45-60 minutes.
OPTION NR. 2 - SELF-DRIVE DOG SLEDDING: 2 persons per sledge
One of the experienced guides will teach you the basics of dog sledding before you venture into the mountains. You will spend roughly 45-60 minutes (depending on the weather conditions) in the sled which you share with another visitor. You and your fellow rider take turns driving and riding, switching at the halfway point. This activity requires not only a good level of fitness, but also some maturity, which means that the age restriction of 16 years is enforced and applicable for drivers as well as passengers.

The day is at leisure to enjoy Tromso also known as the Paris of the North. We recommend a visit to Polaria, a just five-minute walk from the center of Tromso.

Polaria offers an Arctic aquarium, interesting knowledge-based exhibits and a panoramic cinema where you can see the Ivo Caprino film "Svalbard - Arctic Wilderness" and the Ole C.
