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.
