Overview
There are few places in the world where you can actually drive a husky sled through the snow. This tour in Tromso puts you in the driver’s seat to steer a husky-led sled through the Norwegian countryside. A guide helps you learn the basics before taking off, so no experience is necessary, and you can warm up afterward with a hot meal by a campfire. Afterward, visit husky puppies at a breeding center.
Highlights
  • Drive a husky sled through the frozen Norwegian wilderness while in Tromso
  • A guide goes through the basics, so you feel confident to take the reins
  • Warm up afterward with a traditional Norwegian hot meal around a campfire
  • Choose from multiple departure times for complete convenience
What to Expect
Meet for this Tromso sled-driving tour at the Radisson Blu. After a short ride to the countryside, arrive at a dog-sledding center. A guide gives you an orientation on the basics, so you feel confident to get in the driver’s seat. Out on the snow, take the reins and ride as a group of huskies pulls your sled. Make a pit stop at a husky breeding center to meet cute huskies. The center is home to more than 250 dogs. Before your tour ends, enjoy a traditional Norwegian meal composed of reindeer meat, broth, and vegetables (bidos) by a campfire. (Vegetarian options are also available.) Your dog-sledding experience ends with a drop-off back at the Radisson Blu in Tromso.

This was our favourite tour during our stay in Tromso. We chose the option to drive the sled ourselves and we took it in turns, changing over at the half way point. The training for driving the sled takes only a few minutes and we found that the huskies knew exactly what to do,

Was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. We were well looked after and the staff made us feel very welcome. Great fun 'driving' the sled and not enough words I can say about the dogs. Truly awesome experience. The food after the event was also really nice.
