Driving a sled along the Alta river - one of the greatest salmon fishing rivers in the world - you witness not only the wonders of the Arctic winter, but also hear the tales of the destined Arctic summer. Going above and beyond the normal notion of travelling, this experience allows you to collect unique moments as you embark on a journey through the spectacular landscape that is our backyard.

What should you bring?
Don’t forget that this is the Arctic and nature here is on steroids. We provide the proper clothing
you need for an experience in the rugged landscape, but we recommend that you bring the
following items with you to make your adventure even more comfortable. After all, we want you
to completely immerse in the experience without having to worry about anything else.
Alaskan huskies are polar animals and weather conditions, specifically warm temperatures, create situations unsafe for them to run in. Holmen Husky, therefore, reserves the right to cancel trips if the temperatures become unsuitable for our dogs. The weather can be extreme at times in this part of the world and we reserve the right to change an itinerary or cancel a trip if the conditions appear to be unsafe.
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!
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.
