Tromso: Dog Sledding into the Lyngen Alps

A trip to Lapland will never be complete without a dog sledding experience in the snowy forests.

There are many types of dog sledding available in Tromso. You can choose between shorter 1km rides or safaris of 1hr and above. You may get to try “driving” (aka mushing) the sled on your own too.

There are also dog sledding safaris at night that hunt for the northern lights!

The company that I went with is called Northern Light Dog Adventure. It’s a family owned company with over 30 huskies. They are located 1hr from Tromso.

Their tours are in small groups of 2-8; everyone can get the most out of the adventure.

Copenhagen: Christmas market at Tivoli Gardens

Copenhagen: Christmas market at Tivoli Gardens

Tivoli is the world’s 2nd oldest theme park. It opened in 1843 and has made its mark on history; it inspired some big names like Hans Christian Andersen (fairytale writer) and Walt Disney (Disneyland).

I personally feel that it’s much more than an amusement park, Tivoli is like a mini town of its own. Other than the rides, it has theatres, gardens, music festivals, shops and a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes. There is truly something for everyone of all ages in Tivoli!

I love that it’s open till late (11/12pm) everyday.

During Christmas, the park is transformed with Christmas decorations. Just imagine a huge Christmas market within the amusement park.

 

Christmas in Tivoli is known to be one of the best Christmas markets in Europe!
