You start with a short drive to the camp. Here, you will be kitted out with warm outdoor clothing; Snow overalls, shoes, gloves and hats all provided for you. Then it’s time to meet the dogs. The huskies are harnessed to your sledge, eagerly waiting to transport you across the frozen landscape. Each sledge will be travelling with its own “musher” (guide).
Several of these guides are active mushers with long experience so you can just sit and enjoy the ride. The track we follow is in a landscape of frozen lakes, through forest landscapes and snowy plateaus so you will get close to the arctic wilderness. When the sun returns, the climate gets milder and the daylight lasts longer. After the trip, we gather around the campfire for a hot drink.
During the stay, we also visit the Arctic Ice Dome.
