HUSKY SAFARI WEEKEND TO OUR WILDERNESS CABIN

3 days husky safari and 2 nights in our wilderness cabin. "A hands on" -tour with maximum 8 guests. All meals included from late lunch first day to after lunch last day.
Set tour dates for the winter 2017/18.

Our tour dates for the winter 2017/2018 - 3 days of dog sledding, 2 nights in our wilderness cabin

We would like all our guests (over the age of 16) to have a go behind the sled, you will be two person per sled and have the opportunity to swap during the tours. For an additional fee you can upgrade to a single sled.

You will get all the education you need to handle the dogs as good as possible. During the tour you will be taking care of your own team of dogs, giving them the care they need at all times, food, straw, water, cuddling and so on. The first day of a tour like this we normally do a distance of 10-15 km. For those of our guests staying with us for several days we increase the distance on the day tour and come back to the same cabin every afternoon. How far we go depends on the weather, tracks, ice- and snow conditions. The weather in Arctic change from hour to hour and it is not possible to make a program that we at all times have to stick to. We always have to be flexible and do our best to avoid any risks for our guests and our dogs.

The cabin we use are not provided by electricity or running water. It means that we use candles for light and we do have to make a hole in the ice and carry the water we need during our stay. The old way of living is on a test! This way of living is certainly romantic even if it is somewhat hard work as well. We do expect all our guests to participate in the tasks needed to be done during our tour together.

We will provide you with good local food during your stay. We use local ingredients like fish from the river, reindeer meat, red king crab; we make our bread and have picked the berries we serve in the nature around us.
