Highly recommend we loved our hosts they were informative and loved to joke with us all. The fish soup was delicious and so was the cous cous for our vegetarian option the chocolate cake was also yummy. We were lucky enough to see some Northern Lights but the best part by far was playing with the Huskies

Amazing day out with lots of puppies of various ages. All of the staff were very nice, informative and obviously cared about the welfare of the dogs. The provided food was also extremely nice and went down well after an active morning walking and training the puppies!

Despite the initial rain, our guide was very committed and tried hard and showed us the most important points of the city within 2 hours. There was also some interesting background information. Great, it was fun!

It was a very nice experience to be so close with the dogs. You quickly lose the initial fear of the dogs. The guides were very nice and explained a lot. Lunch in the big tent was also very tasty.

Friendly.. Must do when you are in Tromso. Equip yourself! It is very cold..
