We are running a special tour on 28th of March. For this tour we will combine dogsledding, snowcoach and transportation. It is also possible to add a day before or after the tour with accommodation and meals from Tyinholmen and Bygdin Hotel.

Join us for an unforgettable adventure and unique encounter with the Norwegian winter and our four-legged champions! Let the Alaskan Huskies guide you along snowy and scenic paths, and through white mountains landscapes, and get a taste of how polar adventurers explored undiscovered area. The tour starts at Tyin where you will catch the snow coach that will take you through winter wonderland to Eidsbugarden. From Eidsbugarden you will continue your travel through Jotunheimen National Park with a dog sledding crew. Our experienced mushers will adapt the speed and pace according to your level of comfort, and if you are up for the challenge, you can become a part of the crew and not “just another guest”! And yes, this means that YOU will get to be the one leading your own group of Huskies!

You will travel 25 km from Eidsbugarden to Bygdin, past snow-covered peaks and along the frozen Bygdin Lake. The mushers will guide you, take care of the dogs and get you safely to Bygdin. This journey is out of the ordinary, and it will get your adrenaline pumping and your heart racing! Especially for animal lovers, it’s an amazing way to experience this area with these sturdy and loyal dogs by your side.
