Dog sledding

Say hallo to a bunch of barking huskies that are ready for action (but still very friendly). You´ll drive the dog sled by yourself into the white landscapes, through the beautiful Vass valley- an uninhabited forest landscape surrounded by majestic mountains.

Upon arrival at our wilderness camp, you´ll receive outdoor clothes and shoes to keep you warm during your stay. You will get instructions on how to drive a dog sledding team by experienced mushers (click here for instructions).

You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each sled, with the opportunity to switch places half way. The trails you follow have a total distance of approximately 10-12 km, and you will be on the sled for about 1,5-2 hours. At the end of the trail you will return to Camp Tamok. There you will be served a hot meal and fresh coffee in the dining lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent).

Vollan Gjestestue

Vollan Gjestestue opened for the first time on the fourth of July. 1948 by founder Gudrun “Guri” Lydersen. Guri opened Vollan Gjestestue after she bought the property from the Norwegian government at the price of 12.000 NOK in 1946. This was concidered a formiddable feat from a widow with 6 children. The building was constructed by german troops during World War 2 and was used by german officers. The oldes part of the cafè stands today as it did back during the war. During the last 70 years, multiple renovations and expansions to tthe building in order to provide even better food, experiences and overnight stays. We at Vollan Gjestestue stribe to keep our tradition and identity through food, interior and casual and informal service.
