Overview
More
We started out as a home for dogs in 1988, since then our passion for dogs and life in the nature has taken us on an exilerating journey. Today we're one of Tromso's leading tourist destinations with over 300 dogs. Our main tours are with the dogsleds but we also have Northern Lights tours and snowshoe rentals. In the summer we have Kayak trips, a wide range of tours and hikes with our huskies and puppies as well as glacier hikes. We'll provide warm clothes on all our tours to keep you warm while enjoying the Arctic Nature.

Hi, I am hoping to have a long weekend in Norway in early April but I'm wondering whether this will be too late for snow and the dog sledding? Would you know if it would be out of season for whale watching too? Thanks,Jess

Hi Jess, early April is regularily a great time for winter sports. There's usually still snow (I can't recall a year where there was not snow in early April) and there weather is often very nice.

Hello, We are visiting Tromso in February with children aged 8 and 12 who aren't great sitting still for too long. Is this tour suitable? And do you include Veggie sausages/food in the packages that include hot food? Thank you.
