AI10: Dog Sled Tour Along the Alta River

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.

The tour includes thermal suits, hat, gloves and boots. Instructions on handling a dogsled, 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.

Transport is not included. Can be picked up at the tourist office at 12:45. Extra charge NOK 180 per person per way
