Receive an evening bus pickup from the Radisson Blu hotel in Tromso, transferring for 30 minutes to the dog yard in a location just outside of town. You’ll be offered warm winter gear including boots, overalls, gloves, and a hat, and then grab a seat on a sled alongside an experienced “musher” for an evening ride into the mountains.
Enjoy the crisp winter air as you travel by headlamp (and dogs’ noses) into the mountains, keeping your eyes out for the elusive Aurora Borealis. Depending on the activity that evening, you might be rewarded by a spectacular display of red and green lights dancing in the sky above. You’ll spend around 50 minutes on your dog sled ride before returning to the dog yard.
Returning to the yard, you’ll enjoy another 50 minutes for an up-close visit with the yard’s collection of more than 350 four-legged friends, including the puppies. A trained handler will share details about how the dogs are raised and explain the differences between a working sled dog and a pet.
Finish your experience by warming yourself beside the fire with an included dinner of “Bidos” (reindeer stew) with a vegetarian option available on request. You’ll then receive a transfer back to the Radisson Blu.
