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 in how to manage your own husky team, drive in pairs with a chance to change drivers in the halfway and finish the excursion with a delicious hot meal by an open fire. We have built our camp small enough so there is no room for mass tourism and stress of any kind so you can concentrate on enjoying one of the best experiences the far north has to offer!

All our tours include thermal clothing, a lesson in how to manage your own husky team and a hot meal after we take care of the dogs.

Time: 09.00 – 12.00 daily – Price: 1595 NOK per person

Follow the footsteps of the world famous Norwegian explorers into the untouched wilderness to experience something unlike you’ve ever even dreamed of before – the beautiful silence of the snowy forest, the scent of the smoke from the open campfire and if lucky, maybe even a glimpse of a willow grouse or a red fox in their daily routines.

As you return from the adventure, you will have a much wider perspective of the local nature, lifestyle and of the skills needed in the wilderness.

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!

A light meal and hot drinks by an open fire are included.

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

The open air hot tub and sauna may be hired as a package on request. It is necessary to book in advance. You have the option of combining a spa experience in the hot tub and sauna with refreshing drinks served by a private bartender and/or a delicious meal in the adjacent Aurora event cabin.

There are plenty of options, so feel free to contact us. Note that the hot tub can only be rented privately and includes the private sauna.
