On the first night you will sleep in a traditional Arctic lavvu shared between two (Sami wooden tent with raised sleeping area) each lavvu has a wood burning stove to keep it extra cosy. The second you will sleep in expedition grade two man tents that you will carry with you on your sled like real Arctic explorers.
You will be responsible for looking after and feeding your dog team, full instructions and assistance if required will be given by our local professional guides. Included is all the food for you and your dog team, necessary equipment and extreme weather clothing. However, it is a good idea to bring the warmest clothes you have, spare socks and underclothes. (Merino is an excellent choice)
This trip can vary from easy to physically demanding, so a reasonable level of fitness is required, should you have any medical conditions that you are concerned about, please make us aware of this before booking.
Our tour drives through the mountain area, we may begin and end at different locations depending on the ever unpredictable weather and snow conditions.
You will pass through deep arctic valleys and climb to spectacular views with your dog team. The downhills are Adrenalin filled and the uphills will often take a bit of effort on your part where you work in unison with your world class trained dog team in order to move through the Lapland Fjälls.
On a good day the scenery is nothing short of breathtaking, surrounded by blue skies and spectacular mountains all around you, but sometimes when the snow and wind arrive you will see nothing but the sled in front of you with next to zero visibility.
One will be the "musher" (driver), and one will be in the sled. You change places, so both get to experience the thrill of mushing and the comfort of the sled. The huskies love to run, but be aware that you will have to play your part in helping the team up the slopes and difficult terrains. This is a fun and exciting experience, where you will also get a bit of a physical workout.
