Dog Sledding Tour

01 December - 30 April
Depending on Weather Conditions

There is a reason why so many dog mushers call Alta home. Come, join us for a ride and let our huskies tell you why. Our lodge lies only 10 minutes by car outside of Alta city centre, surrounded by pristine Arctic nature. The perfect place to become a musher for a day.

While the huskies love to run in frigid temperatures, we’ll equip you with a thermal suit to keep the cold at bay. But don’t fear the winter – bask in its beauty. The frozen landscape is like nothing you’ll ever see, glittering in the sunlight and bathed in shades of blue, pink and purple during the light of the polar night. Feel the kiss of the cold on your cheeks and listen to the silence of the vast Arctic nature.

Our dog sledding tour includes:

  • Transport to/from Alta city centre
  • Thermal suits, hat, gloves and boots
  • Instructions in how to handle and steer the dog sled
  • Approximately 60 minute long dog sled ride through the Arctic forest and along the Alta river (including a mid-way switch of driver/ passenger for those who are interested)
  • Dog cuddling at the end of the trip
  • Hot drinks and snacks, storytelling and puppies around the crackling fire in our big traditional Sami lavvo

Absolutely amazing 😊

Dogsledding is by far "the activity" you should try if visiting Northern Norway, and Holmen Husky is the right provider! Enjoyed it so much, loveble huskies and very friendly and knowledgeble guides. Bravo!

Tremendous, Fantastic and superb. Exhilarating experience!

We weren't sure what to expect but we wanted to have an inroad into the husky lifestyle and experience. We chose well. Beautifully committed and passionate guides and facilitators made this experience a highlight of our full holiday experience. You get to ride the sleigh in train formation, we did a night and morning run and enjoyed both for different reasons. Do the night one first and marvel at where you were the next time.
