Norway Day 7 – Tromsø and Dog Sleds

I cannot believe it, day 7 already. Now it was time to fly North and above the Arctic circle. First destination up here… Tromsø. No matter how early we had to get up for the flight it was difficult to sleep for what was seen out of the window. Wonderful white landscapes.

Each dog greeted us and they are so so soft and friendly when you approach them. After being treated to some more reindeer it was time to get on the sleds and go go go!

Off we went, the sun shining, the deep snow, the dogs running. It was even better than I imagined. As you go the freezing wind hitting your face is forgotten as you watch the dogs work happily and look around at the scenery Tromsø has to offer.

    Hi Paul! It's cool to see that you like the northern part of Norway. I was living in Tromsø for 5 years and love the city for it's diversity and hip environment.
