Dogsledding through the White Silence

This activity is only for our overnight guests! Contact us as booking@malangenresort.com if you want to join the activity, without staying with us. 

Located near Camp Nikka, we have an intimate group of eager huskies just waiting to take you into the wilderness. We will start the adventure with a lesson on how to manage your own husky team. You drive in pairs with a chance to change drivers at the halfway point. Depending on the weather, we can either enjoy a meal in the outdoors, or back in the warm facilities of the dogyard around an open fire. We have built our camp small enough so there is no room for mass tourism and stress of any kind. You can concentrate on enjoying one of the best experiences the far north has to offer!
If you are pregnant, or have a physical condition that does not allow you to walk, we unfortunately are unable to take you dogsledding due to safety reasons. This is a tour that involves a certain level of physical fitness.

NORTHERN LIGHTS WATCH

Would you choose just anybody to chase a lion? Chasing the Northern Lights is no different!

Malangen Resort is located in one of the most visited Northern Light hotspots in the Tromsø area. “The Watch” enhances your opportunity of seeing the mystical Northern Lights. We prepare for this magical journey with a briefing about this natural phenomenon and the current conditions before we set off to our very own basecamp, Camp Nikka, located 20 minutes from the resort. Camp Nikka is strategically located behind our resort in a location that experiences less cloud activity and the statistics taken by our guides the previous years show that chances of Northern lights here are around 85%! Please note that because of our unique location, our tour does not include “chasing” the lights via a minibus. Rather we have chosen this basecamp experience to allow all of our guests to enjoy the northern lights with comfort and relaxation around a fire inside of our cozy lavvu.

Our experienced guides continue the Northern Light chase long after you fall asleep.

If they spot the elusive light dancing in the night sky while you’re sleeping, we will wake you up with a magical Sami song. That means it’s time to jump into our Northern Light survival kit and meet in the hotel lobby within 10 minutes!

Time: 21:30 to 01:00 every night. – Price: 1650 NOK per person  Children’s Price: 1238 NOK per person
