To the gate to Sarek National Park, 8 days tour
Go with huskies along the Kings Trail to the gate to Sarek National Park. We travel in an area where you will experience everything from old forests, deep frozen lakes and bare mountain views without any trees as long as you can see. If the snow conditions are good we can go in to Laponia, the last great wilderness in Europe and one of the world heritage areas. During the tour you will learn how to drive and handle your own team of huskies. We start and finish the tour at Saltoluokta Mountain station which is famous for its excellent restaurant.
