Norway – Tromsø and Dog Sledding

9

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.

Upon arrival it was out into the cold, all wrapped up and time to go dog sledding 🙂 Fantastic, something I have always wanted to do, and a wonderful surroundings we had here too.

As we pulled up the dogs were howling and barking to great us. All they want to do is run!

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.

At the end of the day it was back onto an overnight ship to go as far north as you can on land in mainland europe.. tomorrow is the North Cape 🙂

  1. Thanks for sharing – this has given me an insight into what to expect in a couple of months time when I travel 250km from Tromso to the Ice Hotel in Sweden via dogsled. It looks amazing…
