Description

Before the expedition starts you get a full introduction into dog sledding. We then head out towards the mountains and, depending on weather, we drive for 5-8 hours to our campsite. Here you settle down for the night. You have to take care of the dogs before you set up your own camp.Hopefully the Northern Lights will appear.
After breakfast the next day you will go further up the mountains and can enjoy pristine beauty and unspoiled wilderness . Possible wildlife sightings along the trail include fox, eagles, arctic and snowshoe hares, moose and reindeers. Around 1700 you will return the Centre where we will serve a traditional sami meal “Bidos” (Reindeer meat with vegetables) in the sami tent.

During the 2 day expedition hour program you will learn about dog sledding. No former experience is needed but the trip requires normal physical condition. Our alaskan huskies love people and are very friendly so you might get some fury friends.

Please bring: Wool underwear for upper and lower body, wool socks and sunglasses.
