Evening dog sledding & Northern Lights

The excursion bus picks you up in the centre of Tromso for an adventurous Northern Lights trip with dog sledding in the Tamok Valley. Due to the geographical location the climate is drier and colder than in Tromso, thus offering a maximum chance of seeing the amazing Northern Lights.
The trip includes dog sledding activity, transfers, a traditional, hot meal and social time by the open fire in the Sami tent. Also included: insulated body suit, warm shoes, gloves, head wear & head lamp. English speaking guide.

What our customers say:

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.
