Overview
The best places to see the northern lights (or aurora borealis) are in the darkest corners of the countryside. This northern lights tour allows you to journey away from Tromso’s bright city lights into areas that are better for spotting the natural lights. Plus, this tour includes overalls and boots to wear, a hot meal by a warm campfire, and a supervised visit with husky pups.
Highlights
  • Leave Tromso in search of the northern lights during this guided tour
  • Under the supervision of a guide, visit adorable husky dogs
  • Keep warm sitting by a campfire with a hot meal—and with included overalls
  • Round-trip transport from Tromso provided for extra convenience
What to Expect
This northern lights tour and husky visit start with pickup in Tromso at the Radisson Blu Hotel. Once you arrive in the countryside, get suited up in warm overalls and boots. The temperatures in the area are, at the highest, an average of 54°F (12°C), so it’s always pretty chilly here. Take part in a short visit with husky dogs, before preparing yourself to see the northern lights. Sit by a warm fire and enjoy a hot meal, as you wait for the lights appear. Vegetarian meal options are available upon request. Your aurora borealis tour ends with a drop-off back at the Radisson Blu Hotel.

I visited with my girlfriend on 18th November 2019. Initially we got collected in a taxi and travelled for around 25-30 minutes through nice scenery. Upon arrival we got issued our overalls, given a safety brief, then eventually got to meet the 300 huskies there. Literally

This place is not going to be what you expected! Huskies that don't seem like huskies, they're very thin and sad looking, chained to their little houses. I understand that they cannot run free because it would be messy, but please improve on the conditions they are living in as

Hei egibeo, It is very unfortunate that you left our center with the feeling that we do not treat our dogs very well. Please be reassured that they are well fed and happy with their living conditions. Their slim bodies are a result of their very active lifestyle, they are the canine equivalent of professional athletes, after all. Now that the snow has come to Tromsø they are running several hours per day, always under the close surveillance of our staff. We keep records of how much each dog runs per day (we even have to report this to the Norwegian state institution for animal health and safety 'Mattilsynet'), check their weight, their appetite and their digestion and then feed them appropriately. As Alaskan Huskies, our dogs are very well adapted to the cold and built and bread to live outside. They are the happiest when the temperatures go down and there is snow. The huts are well insulated and filled with warm straw - their size is small, because that makes it easier for them to heat up the air inside with their bodies. They are also meant as a safe space where the dogs can retreat when they don't want to interact with other dogs or guests. I hope this puts your mind to ease and you can start to feel happy about your visit. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at mail@villmarkssenter.no. Thank you for caring about the welfare of our dogs and please keep on doing this with every animal you meet!

The guide was very friendly and tried to make the most of our experience but it was below par. The "puppies" were 2 6 month old dogs that you could tell were a bit overwhelmed by so many people coming over. They were also underweight. There was 30 people trying to pet the 2
