Full description
Start with pickup from central Tromsø and travel first to the Villmarkssenter Dog Yard. From here, start the hike into the frozen wilderness. Enjoy the quiet surroundings and hear the crunch of the snow under your specially designed snowshoes as you explore and arctic forest. 

Make your way deeper into the wilderness and go in search of spectacular natural phenomena. If you take the tour from December through March, you may see the beautiful sight of the Northern Lights. Watch as green and blue aurora dance across the dark night sky. In the total silence surrounding you, witness how the aurora whispers, as is told by local Sami legend. 

If taking the tour from April through to November, witness the midnight sun as the arctic nights get shorter and daylight lasts longer. Take in a beautiful view of the fjords and mountain panorama with a spectacular sunset. 

After completing the hiking portion of the tour, return to the dog yard and enjoy something hot to drink and a warm bowl of Bacalao, a traditional Norwegian fish dish, in a cozy Gamme-hut. Lastly, enjoy ample time to cuddle with the huskies and say hello to the puppies, before making your way back to Tromsø.

The guide was friendly, the material (snowshoes) was in poor condition and the shoes kept falling off the feet, the hike was short and little information from the guide, we didn't get to the huskies at all, that was promised otherwise. It was simply too expensive for what was offered.
