Snuggle up with some of the world’s cutest dogs during this educational visit to a facility for Alaskan Husky sled dogs near Tromso. This family-friendly excursion is a great way to get up close and personal with these amazing animals and the fascinating world of competitive dog sled racing.
Depart from central Tromso in the afternoon, driving 30 minutes outside the city center to this friendly facility for dog lovers. Enjoy some friendly tongue licks and plenty of time for petting and playing with the more than 300 four-legged friends, from puppies to experienced dog-sled pullers, that call this Husky habitat home.
During your visit you’ll also learn about the competitive world of dog sled racing, including its crown jewel race, the Iditarod. After enjoying an information movie about the race, you’ll also hear about this incredible endurance competition from the facility’s owner, Tove, a 2006 Iditarod participant and recipient of the race’s “most inspirational musher” award.
Return back to your trip’s original starting point in the late afternoon.
