Our dogs are friendly and love attention! Please be ready for enthusiasm and muddy paws when you are around them! (and please stay clear of them if that makes you uncomfortable).
Going on this full day adventure with Holmen Husky lodge you will experience dog sledding and Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel.
The Tour starts from Alta city centre at 10:00 am and take you straight out into the Arctic wilderness. Our lodge is situated just outside the city centre, the starting point of the trip. Here we will supply you with proper winter clothing, to match the winter weather and you will meet your guide and the dog team.
Your ride will take you into the forest outside of Alta and along the bank of the frozen Alta River known for its excellent salmon fishing in the summer. The adventure gives you the time to see the nature and wildlife surroundings. Stories from the guide combined with the feeling of running your own dog team, gives you the real idea about the culture among mushers and their dogs. If you’re lucky, you might even catch sight of a moose or other wildlife along the way!
When you return to the farm, you will head indoors to our Lavvo (a traditional Sami tent) where you’ll warm up around a fire with a hot drink. One of our crew will answer questions and talk about racing dogs and life on the husky farm. And of course, there will be some extra time to visit and take pictures of your new four-legged friends, before we get into the car and drive towards Sorrisniva.
Sorrisniva will welcome you with a warm lunch based on local ingredients. After the meal, you will have time to explore the Igloo hotel, the art work as well as having a refreshing ice drink in the ice bar. After lunch and the visit, you will head back to either our Holmen lodge or the city centre.
