What you'll do

Welcome at OffTrack Experience! Say hello to our friendly Alaskan huskies, that are ready for action!

*IMPORTANT* If your date is not available, please check our evening "Northern-lights dogsledding"! Accommodation also possible at our Log-cabin.

Espen & Delphine will welcome you at their farm, and ensure that you always feel safe & comfortable. At your arrival, we will equip you with good winter clothes so that you stay warm during the trip. Then we will take you in our kennel to meet our dogs up-close and personal. You will be taught how to handle a team of huskies, and we will explain what Alaskan huskies are, their origin, their history and of course why we have them today. After a short briefing, we are ready to head out & explore the snowy forest by dogsled!

We will be out on the trails, with beautiful views on majestic mountains, for +/- 2h. You need to be in reasonable shape, to help and walk / push the sled on the uphills, and break / hold the dogs on the downhills, since the terrain here is slightly challenging. During the trip we enjoy a typical Norwegian outdoor lunch (warm reindeer soup) at our campsite, and some snacks. We will also talk about our daily life with 30 dogs.

At the end of this exciting excursion, we head back to the farm, for some warm drinks around the bonfire in our traditional Samì tent. We will also say hi to our 3 months old puppies!

We had an awesome time, truly a once in a lifetime experience in a beautiful mountain setting. Espen even picked us up at a bus stop about 30 minutes away from the farm. The dogs were very excited to get going and you could tell that they love what they do. It was a little intimidating starting out as you do drive your own sled, but Espen did a great job explaining everything and it just took 1 km or so to get comfortable. Our route was about 15 km in total Arctic beauty with snowy mountains in the background the whole time. It was a very hands on experience, which made it all the more special and memorable.

Dogsledding with Espen & Delphine was the highlight of our stay in Tromsø. Communication prior to the activity was excellent, and we felt well taken care of during the trip. We learned a lot from them and they generously took the time to chat with us over hot drinks and cookies after our trip. The dogs are gorgeous, very friendly and well looked after. The drive down from Tromsø was stunning and well worth the journey. I am so glad we booked this trip over the big commercial dog tours in Tromsø.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Everyone should put this on their bucket list! We had 3 generations of family attend this trip and all left having loved the experience. The dogs were friendly, and well looked after everything was explained well and safety was high on the list. Espen was phenomenal with our children taking them on his sled and allowing them the same experience as we as adults received. I would HIGHLY recommend this experience and Delphine and Espen’s dogsledding tour.

Une superbe expérience en petit comité, Espen et Delphine nous ont très bien accueilli. On sent qu’ils aiment leurs chiens et qu’ils sont bien traités. Ils nous ont fait découvrir des paysages enneigés magnifiques avant de faire une délicieuse pause déjeuner. Durant l’activité nous avons malheureusement perdu notre téléphone mais Espen a tout fait pour le retrouver et on a finalement pu le récupérer le lendemain. Espen et Delphine sont vraiment attentionnés. Pour avoir déjà fais du chiens de traîneau avant, mais dans d’autres conditions, cette activité était totalement différente grâce à l’accueil, à la bonne ambiance durant toute l’activité et aux paysages de forêts enneigées. On recommande vivement !!
