After a warm dinner, we can climb into our sleeping bags for a good night’s sleep. But maybe you are eager to stay awake for bit longer to see if the northern lights appear in the sky? Dinner and accommodation in tent. 

DAY 2: At this time of the year, you will not wake up together with the sun. The darkness is continuous throughout the day. On cloudy days, you cannot see the difference between day time and night time, but on clear days you might see a hint of light and the promise of the coming spring just behind the mountains. After breakfast, we will harness our teams again and start our adventure back to the civilization. We will take some stops along the way to let the dogs rest for a while.
