Dog sledding is available all throughout the winter season, usually from December to May, depending on the amount of snow.

Depending on the winter weather and altitude, the temperature may vary from zero to –20˚C (32˚ to –4˚F). For outdoor activities, we highly recommend woollen or thermal underwear, combined with windproof outer garments, and that you layer your clothing with an inner layer, a middle layer, and the windproof outer layer.

Thick warm headwear and gloves or mittens are strongly recommended, especially if your chosen adventure has a lower level of activity, such as when you’re “hunting” for the Northern Lights.

Mosjøen lies along highway E6. The town has a train station and an airport.
