Attention dog and nature lovers!

Upon arrival check in to the modern and sophisticated Clarion The Edge Hotel. Your first evening lets you wander as you please. There is plenty to explore and see as the sun sets in ‘the Paris of the North.’ If venturing into the city isn’t for you, perhaps stay within the Clarion and wander up to the chic rooftop bar overlooking the bustling city below; enjoy impressive views of the local cathedral. Settle in your cosy room for a good night's sleep before the adventure begins tomorrow.

Day 2 takes you on a canine adventure taking you out of the city and into the wilderness. Engage on a hike lead by local huskies as you traverse through the snow-cloaked landscape enjoying Lunch celebrating local sea food and produce along the way. Take a break as you immerse yourself in local culture next to a roaring fire in a Sami Gamme hut. Rested and re-fuelled you and your husky guides will then head to your cabin for the evening, where you will enjoy a night’s stay in unique accommodation letting you truly become engaged with nature, giving you the chance to bond further with your huskies as they settle down with you in a dog house adjacent to the cabin, parted by a glass window. Enjoy a dinner of local deer that evening and eat like a Sami!

Day 3 takes you back to the welcoming city of Tromsø where you will engage with nature further. After a hearty dinner, head down to the shore edge in the evening and board your sailboat where a guide will take you out on to the silent, mirrored waters under the midnight sun and delicate amber skies. Warm up with fish soup caught by the skipper that day, a very fresh, and warming treat. Head back inland and enjoy your final night at Clarion The Edge Hotel before departure tomorrow.

Medical History and Advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.


Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

If you are struggling to find a suitable policy then details of our preferred provider, who will cover you for all the activities we offer, can be found on our website by clicking here. Please note that this policy is available to EU residents under the age of 75 only.

The UK Foreign Office Advice

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade                                                   

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade                                                 

Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau                                                                                                     

The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Booking activities locally

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern.

In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time. You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

Flight schedule changes and connecting transportation

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

Booking your own flights - cancellation disclaimer

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

Be prepared for some exercise as you are guided by a pack of friendly and very athletic huskies into the Arctic wilderness. Fear not, you will be allocated 1 husky for every 3 adults, so if the eager husky becomes too tiresome, hand over to your walking buddy to take the leash!

    After the hike you and your new companions can settle down for lunch around an open fire in a Gamme Hut* Enjoy a traditional and delicious Norwegian lunch of bacalao, a salted cod dish, afterwards you will then be shown to your cabin where you will be greeted by a very friendly husky. Each cabin has a doghouse that allows you to play with the dogs when outside and lets you watch them rest after a day’s hiking through a glass window whilst inside.

    Now you have become an expert in the local terrain and have bonded with your husky, you will have the opportunity to borrow dog walking equipment and head out into the wilderness once more and in fact keep the dogs overnight as a guest in your cabin! A warming dinner will then be served later in the evening, a delicious and well-earned indulgence after a day husky hiking.

    Taste traditional cuisine once more at dinner with the chance to try Bidos, a traditional Sami reindeer dish. Afterwards relax in your cosy cabin and enjoy a deep sleep in your ‘samina’ equipped bed, known as the world’s best sleeping system due to its pure sheep wool filling.

    *A Gamme hut is a traditional Sámi dwelling, typically shaped like a tepee or cone, or sometimes made of logs. Used by the indigenous Sámi people of northern Scandinavia as a temporary shelter during reindeer herding or hunting expeditions (or husky hiking!)

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • After quite possibly your best sleep, enjoy breakfast back in the Gamme hut and then say bye to your husky friends before heading back into Tromsø.

    It’s time for the dreamiest of activities as you head out sailing under the Midnight sun. Time truly becomes meaningless as you glide across calm waters under amber skies, seeing nature at its very best. Create special memories out on the water, and even enjoy a snack/ warm fish soup onboard using the days fresh catch. This sailing excursion truly is the best way to see the midnight sun, and soul lifting skies of Northern Norway.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast
  • After making friends with local huskies, enjoying delicious, traditional cuisine in Sami cultural environments, and even cruising along Nordic Fjords under the fiery, yet tranquil Nordic skies, it’s time for your holiday to come to an end. Hop on an airport shuttle bus, leaving from the city centre every thirty minutes, and head safely back home taking lifelong memories with you.
