This was an amazing opportunity to meet the Sami people and learn about their culture, it gives you and incredible insight into reindeer farming and the new challenges they are facing with climate change. the reindeers are in great condition and not there to be used as a tourist trap, they are there for you to meet and learn about. the entire night was very well put together and educational. food was great too!
Fantastic day at the Arctic Adventure. The huskies were so friendly and cute. The sled ride was awesome (the perfect weather conditions was no disadvantage of course!). We really enjoyed Hege's chocolate cake and coffee, and otherwise her warm hospitality. We also had a good briefing of the huskies and what they do during the different seasons. Thanks for a wonderful day!
It's a must do when in Tromso, it was the most fun activity of my entire trip. Make sure you are reasonably fit as you will need to push the sled quite a lot every time you get stuck in the snow. Totally worth all the effort and the cake at the end is delicious. Everyone who works there is very nice and understanding. Dogs seem like the happiest canines I have ever seen.
Although the weather was not the best we had a marvellous time. Driving the sledges and being passenger on the sledge was just brilliant. Driving, was certainly more energetic that we thought (my husband is 70 and I’m 67), but we still managed, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The dogs were a delight.
Amazing, wonderful experience with the dogs (and us) super excited to take the sled out! Plenty of opportunities to swap drivers and time to play with the dogs afterwards. Informative hosts who really care about their dogs :).
