1. From Tromsø: Husky Visit with Dog Sledding in Breivikeidet

Drive to a scenic seaside valley in Breivikeidet to learn how to drive a sled. Put on your hat and boots, then meet the huskies. Sit in the passenger seat to take photos, then drive the sled. Come back to camp and spend time with the huskies. Drink warm tea and coffee with the guide at the end. Come to the meeting point at the Scandic Ishavshotel, then depart on a 50-minute transfer to the camp in Breivikeidet. Then, arrive at a picturesque valley near the sea to be greeted by the friendly staff. Put on your polar-insulated boots, hats, and mittens before the dogsledding begins. As this is a self-drive dog sledding tour, we will have a quick safety briefing and teach you how to drive the dog sled. Next, you will meet the huskies and start sledding. You will share the sled with a fellow guest; one of you as a passenger and another as the musher (driver), and you switch places halfway through the tour. On this shorter dog sledding tour, you will get the chance to drive your dog sled at a slow and comfortable pace for 10-15 minutes depending on the conditions, until our guide stops the tour to take photos of you being a dog musher before you switch places with your passenger. Once done with photos, you will take the return trip back to camp. Next, spend a bit of time with the huskies at the camp. Afterward, drink some hot coffee or tea in the panorama restaurant, eat cake, and learn more about the dogs from your guide. Finally, transfer back to the meeting point to finish your sledding experience.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this introduction to cross country skiing. Our guides Magnus and Julie were very patient and helped make the experience a positive one. The equipment provided is excellent, the actual skiing took around 1.5 hours, which is plenty for a first time. We had the chance to visit the Alaskan Huskies which are based at the same activity centre. Tea, coffee and cake was also provided. A very professional and efficient operation run by polite, friendly staff.

It was amazing! The instructor was extremely kind and helpful, and it was an overall fun experience. We rode with the dog-sledding tour, so we got to meet and cuddle the huskies at the end, which was an added bonus. The activity was just the right amount of time, and it was organized very well.

Our instructor Dima was just lovely. we were lucky that it was just myself and my partner, we learnt a lot and was able to practice in a beautiful setting. The guides made sure we had everything we needed and rounded off the visit with a hot drink, muffin and husky cuddles.

This was even more fun than I anticipated! The sledding was a unique experience in a scenic location, the reindeer were so cute and fun to feed, and the lunch and culture tour were very informative! Highly recommend :)

Beautiful and long sled tour. Plenty of time to feed the reindeer. Good stew lunch in a pleasant atmosphere. Very friendly and informative staff.
