Join in on the most fun part of our job and help take our little puppies out for training. Suitable for adults and always a hit with the kids!
One of Tromsø Villmarkssenter’s main ambitions is participation in dog sledding races such as the Finnmarksløpet, Europe’s longest race. The training of our huskies throughout the whole year is therefore essential and in summer it is time for the new puppies to receive their first lessons.
After a 25 minutes drive from Tromsø, you will be welcomed by our guides and receive a tour of our dog yard. Here you can meet and cuddle with our 300 Huskies, while hearing about our life with the animals and dog sledding. Afterwards, you will accompany an experienced handler on a 1-1.5 hour long hike and help train our puppies, who are between 4 weeks and 7 months old. We will do different exercises to teach them teamwork with other dogs and humans.
Afterwards we will serve you a delicious lunch of Bacalao, a fish dish that is part of the traditional Norwegian cuisine, around an open fire in our Gamme-Hut. A vegetarian option is available upon preliminary request.
