Dog Sledding Day Tour

Going on this full day adventure with Holmen Husky lodge you will experience dog sledding and Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel.

THE TOUR starts from Alta city center at 10:00 am and take you straight out into the Arctic wilderness. Our lodge is situated just outside the city center, the starting point of the trip. Here we will supply you with proper winter clothing, to match the winter weather and you will meet your guide and the dog team.
On the trip we will follow the well-known salmon river covered in ice, upstream in the direction of Sorrisniva. The adventure gives you the time to see the nature and wildlife surrounding. Stories from the guide combined with the feeling of running your own dog team, gives you the real idea about the culture among mushers and their dogs.
At the halfway point; Sorrisniva will welcome you with a warm lunch based on local ingredients. After the meal you will have a visit to the worlds northern most and Norway’s largest ice hotel. You will have time to explore the art work and have a refreshing ice drink in the ice bar.

After lunch and the visit we will head back to the lodge. The dog sledding trip itself will run a trail that is around 30km. This will give you plenty of time to enjoy the frozen scenery, the peaceful sounds of the dogs running in the snow, and the steady power of your team. The transfer goes back to Alta city center at 4:00 pm.
