When nature is covered by snow and the temperature is below freezing, there are still many ways to enjoy being outdoors!
At Kirkenes Snow Hotel, situated next to Gabba Reindeer Park, you will be kitted out with warm outdoor clothing; snow overalls, shoes, gloves and hats. Then it’s time to meet the dogs! The huskies are harnessed to your sledge, eagerly waiting to transport you across the frozen landscape. There will be two passengers per sledge, each with its own experienced musher, who also serves as your guide. You can just sit and enjoy the ride.
Deep into the Arctic wilderness
The track is just over 5 kilometres long, and goes over a frozen lake with the beautiful star-studded sky above, and then over snowy plateaus – giving you a real feeling of the eternal arctic wilderness. If you are lucky, the Northern Lights will make a magical appearance. At the end of the trip you gather around the fire for a hot drink, and also have the option to visit the Snow Hotel or the reindeer enclosure.
