Dog sledding is especially important and popular in the Alta area, as the city is the host, starting and ending point for Finnmarksløpet, the world’s second-longest dogsled race. Come take a ride and discover the fun and excitement of traveling by dog power during the dog sledding 15 km tour.

We will collect you from Alta city center and bring you the short distance out to our farm. If needed, we will supply warm clothing to match the winter weather, and then you will be taken to meet your guides and dog team. After proper instruction for handling the sled, it’s time to head out for a ride! Usually, we place our guests in pairs on the sled, one to drive and one to ride (with a switch at the halfway point), but if you simply want to be a passenger, we can arrange for that as well.

Your ride will take you into the forest outside of Alta and along the bank of the frozen Alta River. Whether you are riding in the morning or in the dim arctic afternoon twilight, you’ll be delighted by your natural surroundings and the silent, steady pace of your sturdy and dependable dogs. If you’re lucky, you might even catch sight of a moose or other wildlife along the way!
