Aurora Camp and Dog Sledding

Tromsø Villmarkssenter

If you want more than just a simple northern lights experience, this is just the thing for you! Combine the best of two worlds with an overnight stay in our Aurora Camp and a dog sledding tour the next day.

After a short drive from Tromsø city, you will arrive at our center, where we will equip you with thermal overalls and boots, so you stay warm and cosy while waiting for the lights to appear.

Then you will go on a guided tour of our dog yard, where you can meet and cuddle our 200 Alaskan huskies. You will also visit our puppies, who simply cannot wait to play with you. Afterwards, we will serve dinner in our Gamme-hut. You can try Bacalao, a traditional Norwegian fish dish made from locally sourced cod, but we also offer a vegetarian alternative.

The rest of the evening can be spent outside northern lights watching around a bonfire. As our center is a 25 minutes' drive away from Tromsø and the city lights, the sky overhead is dark and very well suited for Aurora watching. Stay out as long as you like! When you get tired, our Lavvu-tent furnished with soft reindeer skins and high-quality camping gear awaits you for the night. Included in the price is accommodation in a shared tent, if you would prefer private accommodation, please contact us.

And the next morning, after a hearty breakfast, we will take you out for a dog sledding adventure! You can decide if you want to ride the sled as the passenger of one of our experienced guides, or if you want to drive it yourself. Please note that the self-drive activity has an age restriction of 16 years and requires good physical condition. In both tours, you will be out on the sled for about 45 minutes (depending on the weather conditions) and share it with another guest.

Back at our center a hot lunch of Bidos, Sami reindeer stew, will restore your strength before you say goodbye to our dogs and we will bring you back to Tromsø (arrival 12:45).
