Dog sledding has been used for hunting and as a form of travel since the Viking age, now that we have supermarkets and cars, dog sledding is mainly for sport and fun. Finnmark hosts some very important races which are a must see if you are in Alta.
As well as seeing the races here at Alta you have the opportunity to take part on dog sledding trips. They range from a few hour trips to 2 weeks long expeditions. During the trip you learn about the dogs, the sledding, snow camping, ice fishing and more.
For more information about dog sledding and how to take park, please visit the Northern Lights Husky website.
