Try the Arctic Dog-Sled experience and we promise you a once in a lifetime moment!

We at Northern Lights International, offer an authentic mushing experience in small groups. Our Basecamp at Ljøsenhammeren is the starting point. The ride from Rognan and up to the base camp in the mountains between Rognan and Misvær, takes approx. 25 minutes.

By arrival we change in to warm winter clothes and go outside to have our first meet & greet with the dogs. Before we get started our expert musher holds a safety briefing and gives us an introduction on how to manoeuvre a dog sledge

Two persons share one sledge and alters between sitting in the sled and standing in the Mushers position. When it’s your turn to sit in front, you will have a great opportunity to take unforgettable pictures. In the area around Ljøsenhammeren we have prepared a special dog sledding course, so the terrain is safe for you to drive yourself. Our professional Musher is in the first sled and leads the way.

We offer this experience both during the daytime, and in the evening with headlamps and the opportunity to see the Northern Lights.

When we finish the trip, the journey continues into the warm basecamp. Here we serve a local game casserole based on either reindeer or moose meat.




We will provide you with warm winter overalls and everything you need to be a real musher! - However we still recommend that you adhere to the 3-layer principle: woollen underwear, a warm sweater made from wool - or fleece as middle layer and windproof clothing as a top layer.
