This is your chance to join a truly special and exclusive full moon tour. The tour is only available during full moon periods, three days each month.
The tour starts with a visit to the dogyard. After instructions from the guide, you´ll participate in getting the huskies ready for the tour before standing behind your own dog sledge, ready to ride into the magical landscape.
With seasonal changes, the light conditions will varies from the early winter tours in complete darkness, to the spring tours in March.
Early winter tours, we´ll be sledding after sunset and you´ll get an experience of the winter darkness in Norway. This provides great conditions for star gazing and the guide will explain about the different constellations viewable in the sky. With some luck the great Aurora Borealis (northen lights) will present itself.
Later in the season, we´ll be sledding in the twlight and experience the light changes in the sky. We might experience "l´heure bleue" the mystherious blue hour between sunset and darkness, so beautiful in the winter. This time of the day is also the best to witness the "mother of pearl" clouds. A very rare light phenomenon high in the stratosphere.
During the tour we´ll stop on a quiet place and put up an open fire, cook coffee and share some snacks along with good stories.
We can´t guarantee to see the full moon, star gazing or northern lights (it might be hidden behind clouds) but we can promise an evening to remember!
Availability on the tour is limited to a few participants per tour. Check out our online booking calender for available dates and book beforehand to secure the spots for you.
