DOGSLEDDING THROUGH THE WHITE SILENCE

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

Lead a team of eager huskies through the snow-covered Arctic landscape while admiring the breathtaking scenery.

Did you know that Malangen Resort is one of few dog sledding providers in Northern Norway, where the huskies can wander freely in the dog yard instead of being chained up?

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 about how to manage your husky team. We drive in pairs (one driver and one passenger) with a chance to swap places halfway. The adventure concludes 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. You can focus on enjoying one of the best experiences the far north has to offer!

All our dog sledding trips include thermal clothing, a lesson in managing your husky team and a hot meal after taking care of the dogs.

SAMI STORYTELLING AND REINDEER FEEDING

Join us on a journey through Sami culture. The Sami are the indigenous people living in Europe’s northern extremes.

Enter a lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent) with a Sami specialist and hear fascinating stories about the way of life of the indigenous Sami people, their history and beliefs in the glow of the open fire.

You will see traditional Sami artefacts and taste authentic Sami food cooked on the fire. You will then have a chance to visit and feed the reindeer that graze near the lavvu and learn about reindeer herding traditions and the art of lasso throwing.

SNOWY FORESTS ON SKIS

Cross-country skiing has a special place in the hearts of the Norwegian people. Over the years, skiing has moved from being a means of transportation to pure fun.

We will start with the very basics and take you for a short skiing trip through the snowy forests.

Prepare to slide, fall onto the soft snow and laugh! We will ski on prepared tracks. However, more experienced skiers will have the option of skiing through the forest and making their own tracks. The guide will adapt this tour to suit the conditions and the level and experience of the guests. We will have a break during the tour to enjoy hot drinks and a sweet snack.

Learn how to make a fire with a magnesium stone instead of matches and a variety of other skills needed in the wilderness. You will learn about local flora and fauna, how to avoid any natural obstacles covered by the snow and which animals made the footprints we discover.

NORTHERN LIGHTS WATCH

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

Malangen Resort is situated in one of the most visited Northern Light hotspots in the Tromsø area. “The Watch” enhances our guest’s 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 just a 20-minute walk from the resort.

Camp Nikka is strategically located behind our resort in a location that experiences less cloud activity. Our guides statistics in recent years show that chances of experiencing Northern Lights here are around 85 per cent!

Please note that our tour does not include “chasing” the lights in a minibus because of our unique location. Instead, we have chosen this basecamp experience to allow all our guests to enjoy the Northern Lights combined with comfort and relaxing around a fire in our cosy lavvu.

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

Price: 1.595 NOK per person

SAUNA AND HOT TUB

We take our statement that every room at Malangen Resort comes with a view seriously. Our large glass-fronted sauna is located right by the waterfront, so you can enjoy unsurpassed views of the spectacular fjord and mountains while relaxing in the warmth of the sauna.

The view adds an extra dimension to your sauna experience. Could we claim to have the world’s most scenic sauna? A changing room with shower and toilet facilities is located adjacent to the sauna. Towels are included in the price. Our open-air hot tub is situated alongside the glass-fronted sauna.

The hot tub is ideal for groups, families or couples wanting to share a memorable experience. Like the glass-fronted sauna and virtually every other facility at Malangen Resort, the hot tub offers spectacular views of the fjord and mountains.

If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the majestic Northern Lights during a relaxing dip in the warm water. The open-air hot tub and sauna may be hired as a package on request.

In advance, it is necessary to book, as the hot tub needs time to reach the optimal temperature.

The glass-fronted sauna and open-air hot tub have a secluded location right at the end of the resort from the Aurora event cabin.
