What people are saying about Troms County

A truly wonderful day dog-sledding. Great organisation from beginning to end with fantastic, friendly staff. The camp was stunning, super clean with a lovely atmosphere. Sledding was such a brilliant experience with the most breathtaking scenery. The dogs loved to run! They were very well cared for and were so friendly. We were able to spend as long as we liked with them at the end of the sledding. Our lunch was a delicious, traditional lamb stew served with their special bread and hot drinks. We were seated in a teepee with a warm fire. A huge thank you to all the staff but a special mention to Lisa, my sledding partner and Myla for making my daughters 21st birthday so special! I cannot recommend this activity highly enough.

This is a must do when in Tromsø. We were able to walk around freely and meet all of the dogs and even go into the puppy pen and play with them. We then chose to do a ride instead of a self drive and it was so relaxing and beautiful. Our wonderful musher provided us with so much information on racing, the season, how the dogs are cared for, how the weather impacts the sledding, and detailed information about each of our wonderful dogs that were pulling us. Lunch was amazing, with piping hot soup, hot chocolate, and chocolate cake all in a beautiful cozy setting. Each and every staff person we interacted with was informative, caring, and kind. We loved this excursion.

I was going to write that it’s a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience, but I will be back to do it again in a few months. The staff are very friendly and professional, animal welfare is their main priority, and best of all, the dogs love it. A wonderful experience.

It was the most exciting adventure ever. The staff were amazing and the location is breathtaking. I want everyone I know to experience this!

Awesome experience dog sleighing and the most beautiful scenery. Great food and friendly people. The ice castle is impressive
