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.

We had a wonderful afternoon with the dogs, they are so friendly. So much information about the dogs and such a lovely coffee and cake before the trip back to Tromso.

A great place to visit if you love dogs and the story of dog sledding. A very informative place with hundreds of dogs to visit. The dogs are extremely friendly and love to be fussed.
