This excursion starts with a short drive to the Kirkenes Snow Hotel, next to Gabba Reindeer Park, where you are kitted out with warm outdoor clothing; snow overalls, shoes, hats and gloves. We then meet the dogs, eagerly waiting to whisk you across the snowy terrain. There are two passengers per sledge, and each sledge has its own ´musher´ (guide). Several of the guides are active mushers with years of experience, so just sit back and enjoy the ride. The track we follow crosses frozen lakes and wide-open snowy plateaus, providing you with a genuine Arctic wilderness experience.
If lucky, the Northern Lights will make a magical appearance. During spring, the sun returns, resulting in a different, yet equally exhilarating experience due to many more hours of daylight and a milder climate. Afterwards, we gather around the fire and drink hot lemonade. Those who wish may visit the Snow Hotel and the reindeer enclosure at the park.
