Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    After morning pickup from the Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø, settle inside a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the husky dog base on the picturesque nearby island of Kvaløya.

    On arrival, get a briefing on what’s ahead from your hiking guide, and meet the energetic Alaskan huskies who will accompany you on your trek. Then, set off on foot into the countryside with your dogs on long leashes. (As the huskies are very strong and trained to pull, two to three people usually share one dog between them.)

    Trek along trails through glorious flower meadows, drinking in spectacular views over fjords and distant, snow-capped mountains. Watch for wildlife, inhale the crystal-clear air, and absorb the sense of absolute freedom.

    On route, watch for wildlife, hear about the surrounding area, and enjoy the companionship of the huskies — even though you might wonder who’s taking who for a walk!

    If the weather allows, enjoy an outdoor lunch in the wild, cooked Norwegian-style over the campfire. Alternatively, have lunch back at base, after your hike. Either way, finish with chocolate cake at a traditional-style tent.

    Before returning, meet some of the top-trained huskies and puppies, petting the beautiful youngsters and learning about their care.

    Your 5-hour experience finishes with central Tromsø drop-off.

    We are outdoors people, and actually own Siberian Huskies of our own. So when we found out that there was a group that would allow us to come hike with some dogs and play with the new puppies, we were in! The day we booked it for turned out to be the coldest, wettest day of our

    Hei, Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are very sorry we had to cancel the dog sledding part, but we hope cuddling our huskies made up for and we were able to give you a different kind of arctic adventure. Next time we want to take you sledding though!

    We booked this trip when our dog sledding trip was cancelled due to lack of snow. When we arrived we were given wellies and waterproof overalls. Well worth taking them as it was muddy and the dogs jump up! The walk was really fun but the dogs are really strong so be prepared!

    This was our last activity on our Norwegian holiday. We were really looking forward to hiking with the huskies and seeing the puppies but a bit apprehensive about the stamina needed for the walk. We needn’t have worried as we had two great guides who helped us all the way. We

    We recently did this huskie walk, which also included a brief time with the puppies and seeing the kennel. When I saw the power of the huskies, I was glad I wasn't in the first round of volunteers. It took some practice to get used to the tundra and mud and the way everything
