Husky Dry Land Tours

Did you think snow was necessary to run a dog sled? It´s not true. In fact, it is just as fun to go dog sledding in the fall – before the snow has come. The only difference is that the dogs drag you in a specially designed carriage instead of a sled. In Norway we call the carriage a “trollvogn”.

About the tour

This tour takes you into the landscape along ancient forest roads and trails, next to the beautiful Mosko river.

Our tour guides will take you on a 3-hour trollvogn tour where you can experience the beautiful colours of Reisadalen in the fall, along with the happy and energetic huskies.

This is suitable for those who like a bit tougher trips - and this can be called an "off road" trip. Get ready for a bumpy ride!

We offer this tour only from September until the snow arrives.

This tour is suitable for both beginners and families!

Explore the autumn in Reisa valley

Reisa valley is located in the Northern part of Troms. The valley is wide and large and the famous Reisa river divides the valley in two. Many will describe the fall in the Reisa Valley as the most beautiful season, because of all different colors of the forest and snow-covered mountain peaks.

And one more thing.... From September it’s possible that you might even get a glimpse of the magical Northern lights!

Practical information

When you arrive at Riverland Husky you will be heartily welcomed and introduced to your tour guides. They will take you to your changing room and help you get ready for your adventure!

We will teach you how to operate the carriage safely, how to stop and how to communicate with the huskies. Each trollvogn will have 4-6 dogs pulling 2 people, one seated and one driving. Everyone will get an opportunity to ride the carriage through the very special autumn landscape.

We will make a stop at our wooden cabin to enjoy some traditional Norwegian cuisine and hot drinks by the campfire. The food we serve is made from local ingredients. We also offer a vegetarian alternative.

You will have a beautiful view of the mountains and the opportunity to ask us any questions or play with the huskies.
