Dog sledding adventure and northern lights, 4 days tour
Experience the mid-winter in Lapland. Travel with your own team of Siberian huskies through the fairytale forest and see the mysterious northern lights slowly dancing over the sky. Spend the nights in a Sami tipi tent (tee-pee) and wooden huts. Fetch water from a hole in the ice and feel the warmth from the glowing fire in the wooden stove. See tracks from the wild animals and experience the true wilderness way of living in close contact with your working friends - the sled dogs.
Four days of dog sledding and three nights in the wild
We will pick you up in Jokkmokk and drive you to the kennel, located just outside Jokkmokk.We get dressed in warm thermo parkas and pants and boots. You will learn how to handle a dog sled, how to communicate with the huskies and learn about safety in cold climate.
We harness the sled dogs and pack the sleds to get ready for start. You will drive your own team with four Siberian huskies.
Every day we stop and prepare our lunch over open fire out in the nature. By the huts and tipi tent camps everyone help out with taking care of and feeding the dogs, cooking and fetching water from the frozen lake or river.
There is no guarantee for the northern lights but hopefully we will see this fantastic light phenomena dancing over the sky during the nights.
On day four we head back to Jokkmokk and will arrive to the kennel in the afternoon full of new experiences. We give the dogs some snack and take off the harnesses.
After saying goodbye to your new friends we drive you back to Jokkmokk.
