ACTIVITIES

We'd love to hear from you

Puppy training

 

​​Want to experience how we train our puppies for our main ambitions which is participation in dogsled racing? Training of both dogs and people throughout the year is essential and summer is the time for new puppies’ first try at teamwork.

Take part in the most fun part of our job, spending time with the little ones as they race to see who will become the next star leader dog.

Of the 300 Alaskan huskies, the puppies are most important. Join our experienced handlers and train the youngest sled dogs who are from 4 weeks to 6 months. We will take the puppies out for an 1 - 1.5 hour hike close to the husky farm and do different exercises in wilderness depending on the age of the puppies. Back at the centre lunch will be served.

Sea kayaking

 

The weather will decide the exact route we will paddle, but it will be on along the coast line of Håkøya-Island, close to Tromsø city. On the trip you can enjoy the scenic mountain panorama. Due to the small size of the vessels and the absence of engine noises, we often get close to arctic wildlife such as sea eagles, porpoises and seals!

You do not need any previous kayaking experience to participate, as our guide will give you a basic course and help you with everything you need to know. We usually provide double kayaks for beginners, but you can inquire with us regarding a single kayak if you have some experience.

Midnightsun kayaking

Kayak is one of our favorite ways to spend time outdoors in summer! The ocean is fundamental to North-Norwegian culture and kayaking is a great way to experience it. On the bright summer nights, we can kayak even at night and enjoy the midnight sun.

A great time to observe marine birds who are very active at this time. We use double kayaks ideal for beginners but inquire about single kayaks if you have experience and want a bit more challenge.

Husky trekking

Our two greatest loves are huskies and life outdoors, experiencing nature with a faithful four-legged friend is the best combination of both. The huskies are highly energetic dogs so don’t be surprised if you start to wonder who’s really taking who for a walk.

We prepare lunch in the wild, or back at camp if the weather gods are moody. While visiting, we can of course not resist visiting the dog yard to showing off our puppies and star athletes.
