Glide over the tundra. From puppy to sled dog. 60 huskies and pups at our service. Your own team on each winter excursion. This is the course for folks who really want to be dog people!
Dog sledding is about strong huskies, training pups, and mushing on the Finnmark tundra. It's for those who dream of huskies and an exciting outdoor experience. Alta has the biggest concentration of mushers/huskies in Norway. There is over a thousand huskies , mushers, and support in and around Alta in March during the Finnmarkløpet, Europe's longest dog sled race. Our school helps during the event. Throughout the winter, you'll be responsible for your own team training for the long tour through the breathtaking nature of North Troms and Finnmark.
