Highlights
    What to Expect
    Depart from your Tromso hotel in a comfortable, climate-controlled coach destined for a husky center. 

    Feel your excitement heighten as you hear the raucous barks of more than 120 huskies at the snow-smothered farm. On arrival, greet the professional mushers (sleigh drivers) and get acquainted with the adorable dogs, all of who are eager bound across the frozen wilderness. 

    After listening to a short safety briefing and donning a thermal suit, climb aboard your sleigh, choosing to sit down or stand on the runners, and set out to explore the enchanting landscape. Feel your adrenaline levels surge as the huskies break into a fast-paced sprint and the cold Lapland air brushes against your face. 

    Watch snow-covered scenery whiz past. After approximately 1.5 hours of riding, return to the husky farm and relax with a hot drink and sweet cake in a fire-lit lavvo tent. 

    Revitalized, return to your vehicle and reflect on your magical excursion during the journey back to Tromso.
