There are many huskies, of various sizes and ages, at the centre. With them are people who give the dogs everything they need, including the joy of running long distances. The founder of the wilderness centre, Tove Sørensen, has over 30 years' dog sledding experience, and she has also been a pioneer of dog sledding at a competitive level. 

The visit to the wilderness centre allows you to pet the dogs and admire their strength and beauty. You will learn about dog sledding and breeding huskies.  

The wilderness centre is located in a scenic area, and if you like you can join a small tour to explore the flora and fauna of the area.  A piece of our family-recipe chocolate cake and something hot to drink, served around an open fire in our cozy Gamme-Hut, concludes a perfect afternoon.

A Husky Visit in the Wilderness of Tromsø

The dogs train during the summer, but as soon as the first snow falls, they sit in front of their houses, eager to start working.
