  • The whole experience was amazing, I think it is a must for everyone that visits Tromso. The guide was amazing and overall the whole trip was a success. 💪 It's not a company that just puts you on...

  • We had a fantastic time with Thomas and his dogs. It's slightly more expensive than the touristy companies in central tromso, but it's so so much better and worth the extra money. You get a small group (it was just me and my girlfriend when we went) and you visit someone who is so passionate and knowledge about dog sledding. The dogs are all very clearly looked after and we very quickly fell in love with them all. You can see why he keeps 38...! Everything we needed was provided and Thomas was more than happy to take photos of us to keep as memories. Would 100% recommend the musher for a day experience to anyone.
  • Thomas and his son Stien are the real deal. This is not your common tourist trap excursion. Thomas takes his dogs and his sport very seriously. You will take a scenic drive with Stien from the center of Tromsø thru the fjords and snow covered mountains to Thomas's home at the base of beautiful surrounding mountains. You are quickly introduced to Thomas, fitted and dressed in the proper warm clothing and out to meet and harness your team of dogs. After a quick lesson, and I mean really quick, you are ready to go. Pay close attention to Thomas's instructions. Be mindful of the initial steep drop at the beginning of the trail!!!! And hang on!!! The trail can be quite physically challenging at times but work hard because your dogs are always working harder and if you slow them down or lead them into trouble they will look back at you with a the most judgmental glare. The views and adrenaline rush are worth all your effort. After about an hour of mushing you will help unharness your dogs from the sled and bring them back to their houses one by one and then help feed them. You go inside, change out of your cold suits and sit down to some cookies and hot coffee while Thomas tells a little more about himself, his dogs and answers any other questions you might have. Don't waste this opportunity, don't be shy. If you want a physical challenge and the opportunity to learn real dog sledding with a professional then book here. Also, he only books tours of 2-4 people to maintain a more quality experience.
