Say hallo to a bunch of barking huskies that are ready for action (but still very friendly). You´ll drive the dog sled by yourself into the white landscapes, through the beautiful Vass valley- an uninhabited forest landscape surrounded by majestic mountains.
Upon arrival at our wilderness camp, you´ll receive outdoor clothes and shoes to keep you warm during your stay. You will get instructions on how to drive a dog sledding team by experienced mushers
You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each sled, with the opportunity to switch places half way. The trails you follow have a total distance of approximately 10-12 km, and you will be on the sled for about 1,5-2 hours. At the end of the trail you will return to Camp Tamok. There you will be served a hot meal and fresh coffee in the dining lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent). After you´ve filled up with food and beverages, our bus will take you back to the Tromsø city centre.
Pick-up by bus or minibus is in the city centre of Tromso, outside the Scandic Ishavshotel by the harbour. Transfer time is 75-minutes to Camp Tamok: the starting and ending point of your excursion
