With our Weekend Adventure package you can get a taste of the dog sledding lifestyle. Become a musher for a weekend. Take care of your own dogs and feel the thrill of racing across the pristine Finnmark Mountain Plateau. Staying in a traditional mountain cabin, you’ll get a sense of what life is like up in the north. It is a freedom like no other, with Arctic nature stretching out as long as the eye can see. You’ll take care of your own team of huskies, just like other mushers do. From feeding to harnessing, you’ll do it all. And if you’re lucky, the night sky will be filled with dancing, northern lights. Why don’t you join us?
On the first day you will do a bit of everything. Upon arrival you’ll meet your guides, get your room, clothing and equipment. Shortly after we will go out on our first dog sled tour and get a sense of feeling for the sled and dogs. The tour is followed by dinner, jacuzzi and sauna.
Transfer from Alta City Centre or Alta Airport to Holmen Husky Lodge (approx. 15 minute drive)
Followed by dog sled tour:
On the second day we’re headed to the mountain cabin. We’ll start the day with dog team handout and information about the day. The goal of the day is to get over the mountain plateau, park our dogs and check in to our accommodation where we will stay for the night.
On the third day we will make our way back home over the mountain plateau. Get back to our lodge where sauna, jacuzzi and a good meal awaits.

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.
