Description

Join us in the footprints of Fritjof Nansen. We offer a special program where you can experience how to mush your own dog team of Alaskan Huskies. All necessary training will be given so you will be confident working your own dog sledge team. You feed, take care of their welfare and have a chance to bond and feel the amazing fellowship between humans and dogs. You spend two nights at our comfortable Basecamp ship in the ice, a schooner with the suitable name Noorderlicht, built in 1909. In its 100 years of history it’s been well taken care of and is still very prominent and comfortable. The boat has 10 comfortable two-bed cabins, and there are good onboard facilities. You will during your stay be served a 3-course dinner in the evenings and breakfast. Lunch will be enjoyed in the field. There is a licensed bar within the ship open until midnight. From the first of March until mid-May, the ship is frozen into the beautiful Tempel fjorden waiting for todays’ adventurers!
