Meet your guide and group in the evening at a central location in Tromso, where you'll board a comfortable bus for the ride to the countryside, about 30 minutes away. At the dog yard, get outfitted with a thermal suit and boots to fight off the Arctic air. After a brief introduction, an experienced musher takes you on a two-passenger ride into the Norwegian winter landscape.
Listen to guide commentary and keep watch for the elusive Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). You’re in an ideal location to see them, far away from city light pollution. Learn about the mystery behind their appearance and what conditions make for the best viewing.
Back at the yard, spend some time visiting with the pack of dogs, including puppies being trained for the trade. Then head inside for a dinner of traditional Norwegian food before heading back to town.
