This exciting and less-traveled itinerary takes you into Norway's boreal territory for spectacular snowcapped scenery in the Arctic region. Base yourself in the quietly sophisticated city of Tromsø (Northern Norway's largest), where you can sled with huskies and reindeer during the day and chase the Northern Lights after dark. At the end of the adventure, you'll spend a memorable night in a traditional 'lavvu' tent and learn about the Sami indigenous culture before returning to 'Paris of the North' for one more night on the town.
After a meet-and-greet with hundreds of huskies and their puppies, it's time to embark. The pairs will take turns driving and riding throughout the journey, and first-time sledders needn't be nervous—professional guides will ride alongside every step of the way and offer any tips and instructions as they arise. The sled trail covers a total of 2.4 miles (4km), and along the way, there will be a stop for hot coffee, tea, and biscuits.
