Try Husky Dog sledding! 

The team at Northern Lights International are proud to provide you with an authentic mushing experience! You will get the chance to manouver your very own team of huskies into the Norwegian wilderness..  

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 leads the way.



Starting point:

Our Mountain Basecamp "Ljøsenhammeren" is the starting point. This can be reached with rental car from Bodø or Rognan. The ride from Rognan and up to the base camp in the mountains between Rognan and Misvær, takes approx. 25 minutes. From Bodø it takes approx 1 1/2 hours. 


We will provide you with warm winter overalls. 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.
