We had an excellent time on the tour. My mum fell back and off the sled when the huskies took off and left my brother being pulled by the dogs alone in the sled. The staff were amazing, snow mobiling up to & stopping the run away sled then making sure my mum was ok. Thinking back it was very comical (hilarious) but on a serious note the staff were fast acting and brilliant. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour - do it! The dogs seem well looked after and the staff are very fond of them, which was important to me.

Det var nesten 2 timer kø for å komme inn. Møt opp tidlig.

Those huskies were the cutest, very nice activity with a hot juice and some nice information. After the amazing ride we could cuddle them and even see their puppies! Just amazing day

Incredible, guides at the top again thank you to Julien, Dominika, Tarah, Mous for these unforgettable moments!

Incredible half day trip, with amazing activities and knowledgable guides.

Husky and reindeer was fun to do. But the snowmobiles completed the trip
