Dog sledding is the best way of experiencing the Arctic nature. Let us take you on a ride to discover a new world. A world of stunning beauty, rugged landscapes and of silence – pure and breath-taking. Drive your own sled or enjoy the ride as a passenger, either way, we promise you the memory of a lifetime.
There is a reason why so many dog mushers call Alta home; it is perfect for dog sledding. Come and let us show you why. Our lodge lies a short while outside of Alta city centre, surrounded by pristine Arctic nature.
A team of huskies will take you out in pairs, as mushers or passengers, riding through the snowy forest and on the ice that covers the famous Alta River. There’s no better way of getting close to nature than this.
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.
