About Tromso Villmarkssenter, Tromso
The white colored wild dogs also known as huskies are a main part of this wintery region that is almost always covered with snow. This is the place where you can enjoy dog sledding during the winters and kayaking, hiking and excursions during the summer time.
This also includes an exploration of the beautiful Northern Lights, a visit to the puppy house and a traditional Sami dinner that is a meal of reindeer meat. It is a thrilling experience mostly for first timers as they are also taught how to drive their own sledges.

Tromso Villmarkssenter, Tromso Reviews
An incredible experience from the moment we arrived. Each and every staff member that we met was so welcoming & friendly. Our Musher was a great guy from Ghent, Belgium, who explained everything to us and made us feel so relaxed. The Dogs obviously loved to run & it was great to see how friendly and affectionate they are. Seeing the puppies was super too. We loved the fish stew & chocolate cake in the new conference centre - I would recommend this experience to anyone. Thanks to Tromsø Wilderness Centre for providing such a wonderful, multicultural, calm environment. We hope to return.
Beautiful place, friendly and happy stuff. The dogs are amazing. The first moments on the dockyard are a bit overwhelming - barking, urine, ice, .... But do not worry, the dogs are really happy - they love to cuddle, are human-friendly, love to sleep in the snow (its to hot in buildings for those wonderful creatures) and love to pull the sledge. Just observe them when they are waiting to start or in the curves where the dogs directly in front of the sledge looks back and compensates the forces by running more inward. The tour is really beautiful and I appreciated to control the sledge myself. The puppy cuddle time afterwards absolutly cute and amazing. Lunch (reindeer soup and a really good chocolate cake) was warming and overall good. It was a beautiful day and I will come back :)
The whole experience is simply amazing. You get picked up from the city centre, so you don't have to find the way on your own. The staff at villmarksenteret is very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is so cozy that I didn't want to leave. My parents and I went husky sledding, and I would recommend everyone to try it. You sit two and two on the sledge with a musher behind you. The ride takes about 40 minutes, and then you can walk around at the centre before lunch. All dogs there are super friendly, so nothing to be afraid of.
Good fun dog sledding with friendly knowledgeable staff that clearly care about the hounds. Wrap up warm in winter and remember these are animals, and they don't stop for anything so you might want to bring face coverings and be prepared for the smells that might literally be kicked up in your direction! After the sledding you retire to a heated hut for hot drinks and tasty cake.
Beautiful scenery and friendly staff. We did a snow shoe trek with some dogs in February and it was great. Nice views and lots of chances to play with the huskies and meet the baby huskies too.
