Tromso Villmarkssenter - Review
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.

My husband and I loved our hike with the "teenager" puppies. They have so much energy and love to play! We played some fun games, cuddled smaller puppies, and even got to see a litter of newborn baby puppies!! We had some free time to walk around and meet the adult dogs and enjoyed the song styling of Rex, the singing dog. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and the chef was very accommodating to my being vegan (and dairy allergy). High point of my trip. Comes with a price tag but worth it. My husband enjoyed it more than he thought! Highly recommended.
Very DISAPPOINTING experience. A tourist trap, nothing more. If you’re looking for a genuine ethically-run dog farm, this is definitely not the place. Think about 300+ chained dogs crammed into overcrowded dog houses and sitting next to their poop all day. We went for the « hiking with huskies » tour, organized all through summer. We paid about 250$ for the walk that turned out to be a hike without dogs. Indeed we had 6 dogs for a group of 12 people, but since 2 people decided to keep a dog for themselves for the whole « hike » we didn’t get to walk dogs for most of the hike. This is ridiculous given that you have literally hundreds of dogs waiting next to their poo in a kennel. If i wanted to go on a hiking trail I would have just done it. For the rest of the farm’s visit, the guides were nothing but unhelpful. The organization was chaotic. The guides would disappear around the corner and leave you hanging and clueless as to where to go next if you leave them out of your sight for just a second. I don’t blame them though. By speaking with them, you quickly understand they’re all being exploited. You have over 20 nationalities under one roof (not a single local of course) working here for the season, just for the owner of the farm to be able to cash in big time. Speaking of the owner, we met her because we asked to speak with a manager to voice our frustation regarding the tour and the expectations we had paid for that were not met. I was pretty worked up about this unethical scam and all she was able to say was « Sorry about that, I can’t do anything for you ». The very least would have been to just offer a coupon, or a partial reimbursement for the service which was not provided. But the worse thing remains the horrific living conditions of those animals. They’re emaciated, chained, look sad and are trained for the tourists’ satisfaction only. All in all, AVOID THIS PLACE, do not let this type of businesses carry on their cruel activities by supporting it.
Fantastic experience. It is not cheap, but it is all worth it. The dogs are very eager and enthusiastic. They really want to run themselves. The staff is super friendly. The environment is stunning. The ride is relaxing and brings lots of time to enjoy the snowy wilderness. You will get good food at a campsite, with warm soup. Recommended!
Absolutely fantastic service and skilled personnel making our tour magnificent. Tailor made expeditions on schedule and deliverance above expectations. Recommended of my hole hart. Thx for a wonderful weekend.
Wonderful experience with husky. The Children had the possibility to stay with the puppies and a nice slice of a typical cake was offered to all the guests. The guides are really nice!
