Join us on a dog sledding trip that you won’t forget in a hurry. We will drive the dog team through the beautiful Reisa Valley and, if you are lucky, you will see the Northern Lights dancing in the sky.
We take you on a three-hour dog sledding adventure in the evening. You will experience the trip in the dark with only your headlamp to show the way. With a little luck, you will see the Northern Lights in the sky and if the weather is fine you will see the steep mountains around you as the dogs pull you through the forest and countryside.
Reisadalen in North Troms is a large and beautiful valley with an abundance of snow in winter and beautiful views of the steep mountains and the gateway to the Reisa National Park.
On arrival, you will be given safety instructions and shown how to control a team of 4-6 dogs. We will also provide you with a warm thermal suit, winter boots, woollen hat and mittens. Remember to bring suitable warm outdoor clothing. We also recommend woollen under garments, a fleece jacket and warm socks. The warm thermal suit is designed as an outer layer. When everyone is ready, we set off. One person sits on the sled while the other is the musher, the one who “drives” the dog team.
The part of the valley where our trip takes place is virtually flat, making it ideal for novices too.
The trip will take you to our wilderness camp, where we will serve you a hot lunch and tea/coffee. We provide a vegetarian alternative. The wilderness camp includes a heated cabin and an outdoor toilet.
After the break, we will continue our dog sledding trip. The person who “drove” the dog team will now sit on sled, so the other person has a chance to be the musher.
The duration of the trip is approx. 3 hours.
