A few weeks ago, a few friends and I went to Norway for an extended weekend. Aside from checking out Oslo, we made the decision to go to Tromso, Norway, which is the Arctic region of Norway. Dog sledding was one of the excursions we've picked and it was an experience of a lifetime. We went during the evening, which turned out to be a great call. It was incredibly scenic at night and being from New York, the endless amount of stars that were visible was amazing - not to mention how surreal it felt to be sledding through untouched snow and having the view of the snow covered mountains.  We were able to mingle with the dogs a bit while they were being assembled into teams for each sled, which was so much fun since they were all full of energy. One of the best parts was all the howling that all the dogs did before we finally rode out - imagine about 60 dogs in one dog yard howling and yelping all at once with pure excitement. On a side note: Dog sledding was a lot harder than I expected. Having your sled fall over was common and getting back up was pretty difficult. We rode with huskies and although they're not as big as mastiffs, they are incredibly strong!! There were moments where I had to use every ounce of my strength to press on the brakes so that they would halt. Oh also, we got the chance to see the Northern Lights during our ride which was such an awesome plus!   

Tip: I booked this through ActiveTromsø. Our guide wasn't the friendliest or had as much patience as you'd expect from a beginner-friendly activity but I forgive him because the experience was beyond amazing (I saw it as tough love and ultimately appreciated this because we left with a genuine experience without being baby'ed throughout the whole ride). I can imagine how stressful it would be to guide 6 sleds (12 people total) through the mountains, while having a team of girls right behind him that had no idea what they were doing (and the fact that they would fall every 5 minutes and get stuck on an uphill when you're clearly supposed to help the dogs push/mush upwards). Another positive factor that I found in ActiveTromsø was the dogs themselves. They were full of energy and it's clear that the guys running the place have raised and trained the dogs with love (check our their Instagram). Plus, the dogs were bigger and more active than another dog yard that I came across while my friends and I were making a pit stop for snowmobiling!

I was adament that I didnt want to partake in the Dog Sledding, however I got persuaded into it. I was wincing at parts especially when we went around corners but it was breathtaking and and a thrilling experience.
