Dogsledding along the Alta river

Come to Alta, Europe's dogsledding capital -- we host the 1100+ km Finnmarksløpet race every year -- take a ride on your own sled, and discover the fun and excitement of traveling by dog power!
We will bring you to our farm from Alta, make sure you are properly outfitted and instructed on how to control the sled, and then you're off on your ride through the nearby forest. The morning tour will give you the best views in the arctic day; while the afternoon tour gives you the exhilaration of traveling through a twilight or nighttime forest.

Afterwards, you'll meet in our lavvo tent for hot drinks and fun conversation about raising and racing husky dogs. And of course, there will be some extra time to visit and take pictures of your new four-legged friends, before returning to Alta again.

The tour includes:
- Transport from and to Alta city center
- Thermal suits if needed for weather
- Proper instruction on handling the dogsled
- The tour, approx. 15 km, traveling with guides from Holmen Husky Lodge
- Hot drinks (coffee or blackcurrant) and conversation afterwards

We pick you up at your place of choice (next booking step) and bring you to the center of Alta after the activity.
Time of pickup is at 10:00 and drop-off is at 12:30 for the 10:00 am activity. Pickup for the 16:30 pm activity is at 16:30 and drop-off is at 18:30. Please note that the times might vary with a few minutes depending on where you want to be picked up.
