A gateway into the dog mushing mecca of Norway. The small town of Alta is home to the world’s northernmost dog sledding race - Finnmarksløpet. This race is a feat that has been around since 1981 and has steadily grown into a world-renowned lifestyle that engages thousands of people from around the world. Our family’s journey started in 1986, over three decades ago, as we began training for winter’s most beautiful adventure.
The knowledge and tradition of our family are what sets us apart. It is an addiction that runs through our bloodline, and we want to bring you into our world and show you the magic that exists in what is to us, an extraordinary life.
On this dog sledding adventure, we will take you along the very trail that Finnmarksløpet follows each year. We want to show you the world where our family has challenged themselves and lived out their passion for dog sledding here above the Arctic circle.

What our guests say
Alaskan huskies are polar animals and weather conditions, specifically warm temperatures, create situations unsafe for them to run in. Holmen Husky, therefore, reserves the right to cancel trips if the temperatures become unsuitable for our dogs. The weather can be extreme at times in this part of the world and we reserve the right to change an itinerary or cancel a trip if the conditions appear to be unsafe.
