7 days of different activities and adventures in the land of the northern light. Visit the Norwegian Sámi capitol - Karasjok and try snowshoeing, skiing, visit a reindeer herder, dog sledding and more while you stay at the truly unique Engholm Husky Lodge.
Feel the pleasure of being out in the wilderness and the rewarding feeling of having spent a night out in the fresh air. You can sleep under the open sky, on braches under a traditional Scandinavian improvised shelter or maybe even in an igloo, all depending on the time of the year and the weather conditions.
This is a great opportunity to do something new, lower your shoulders and learn new outdoor skills. Great food and stories also falls within.
As far up from the River Karasjoka as you can hear a dog barking is the Haldecohkka (the Halde top). From this holy mountain you have a 360 degree view of the sky and a perfect place to experience the magical northern light (Aurora Borealis).
At least once in your life you should see the Finnmark Plateau.
On this trip we ski with dogs and pulks (sleds) from the town Alta across The Finnmark Plateau to Karasjok in the heartland of the Norwegian Sami culture. We sleep in tents and most of the trip will be of tracks.
This trip will let you experience the silence of the wilderness, the joy of being outdoors and the absence of crowds.
