Evening dogsledding in Skibotn

Active North

Join Active North dog sledding in Skibotn, a place known for its dry climate and good chances to see the northern lights. Heading up the valley you will get to experience the arctic winter.
Come and visit our beautiful Alaskan Huskys.

The Alaskan Huskys will great you with excited barking and friendly attitude, willingly pulling the sled into the valley of Skibotn. We will travel through the pine tree wood and into the beautiful white mountains. We will have a perfect view to the extraordinary mountain range, The Lyngen Alps and a chance to see the northern lights

Experienced dog mushers will give you instructions on how to drive a dog sled. You will drive in pairs, one driver and one passenger on the sled. You can switch during the ride.

The trip will last for 1,5 – 2 hours. We will have a quick break halfway, where you will get the opportunity to take pictures, change drivers, and cuddle the dogs. When you come back to the camp you will get a hot meal, fresh mountain spring water, and a drink of coffee or tea. After the meal the bus will take you back to Tromsø.
