The ride getting there from Tromso was relaxing and allowed us to see the beautiful scenery along the way. We were given snow suits, boots and gloves and they kept me nice and warm. I highly recommend you do both sitting and steering the dog sleds. I was afraid to steer at first but it is super simple. If you're concerned about not stopping the sled, for reference I'm 130 lbs and the girl in front of me was probably less and both of us had no issues. The dogs were amazing and the path we traveled on offered wonderful views. Afterwards we visited with the dogs. The dog owners/handlers were all friendly and answered any questions about the dogs and the puppies in training. Afterwards we had soup in a nice, warm tent, and finished up with the ice domes and caught a wonderful view of the Northern Lights dancing in the sky. Out of whale watching, reindeer sledding, Northern Lights tour (the next day the Northern Lights barely appeared), and dog sledding, I enjoyed this adventure the most.

Amazing experience on our first day in Tromso. Early morning Bus/coach from city centre to wilderness location about 1.5 hours drive away. Gorgeous scenery on route (despite it being late December and so small part of the day is in half light and rest is dark). Sledding was fun with beautiful dogs who knew what they were doing so not too taxing, although as snow not that deep, we had to help with pushing up hills. Lovely lunch sitting in tented area with wood fire. If vegetarian- remember to say when booking - I had a tasty bean stew while others had reindeer stew. Ice domes were magical, and was the stories of great Norwegian explorers (the theme for the carvings) although I would let want to stay in one for too long - brrrr! A long day but worth it :-) Quite expensive but think that’s the going rate ?

Our first time with this kind of activity. Was such an adventure. The weather was not good for the dogs and we had to work a lot to help them to transport us. Our dogs only wanted to play and they did not want to do much that day. The guide was amazing, he told us everything about the sledge and how to manage. I fell while I was driving but everything was under control. Seems easy but it is not :) at least for beginners. They provide with perfect clothes, and apparently it was not really cold that day. Boots did not work for me, my feet were cold and not comfortable for running and pushing in the snow, mine were better actually. For my husband their boots were fine. We met a woman there, a guide from Poland who had awesome stories. Lunch was excellent and the visit to ice domes totally worthy.

Such an amazing experience. It was my first time to do any snow activity and the guides were very friendly and explained everything. They made sure to check on our sledge during entire activity which made us very comfortable and less nervous. Each guide at the activity was very friendly and helpful. They made our day fun and memorable. I would recommend them to everybody who is visiting Tromso and want to do winter activities. Also so much of love to the 4 huskies who pulled us through the mountain. They were full of energy and enthusiasm. Would really love to visit again and do more winter activities with this group :)

Surprisingly, this was the best part of our trip in Tromso. This is my family's first time to do dog sledding and we enjoyed it very much. Our coach explained clearly what to expect/do; our guide was our number 1 cheerer and watched us and took care of us throughtout the trip. After the dog sledding, we all went for lunch and the hot berry tea was a hit and so was the hot fish soup -- just what we needed after almost 1.5 hrs out in the cold, If anyone will be in Tromso, this activity is a must and should be experienced!
