Tour discription

Come out for an extended expedition into the wild arctic plateau. Get away from the “regular” world in a unique way that only a very few people will experience!

Day 1

Arrive at Holmen Husky (we can pick you up in city center orat the airport). Get to know the dogs and learn about the equipment –all hands-on, of course! -and then take a short afternoon sled trip to practice. In the evening, enjoy dinner at the kennel, relax in the Jacuzzi and sauna if you like, and spend the night in our luxury Tipitents to prepare for the days ahead.

Days 2-4

We journey between mountain cabins that are set out in the wilderness for travelers. Each day’s run spans around 30-40 km. Accompanied by guides and their dogs, you will drive your own dog team each day through the snowy and ruggedly beautiful countryside, stopping now and then for lunch, side activities or just to take a break. Each evening at the cabin, we’ll tend to the dogs and then relax over dinner, conversation and something good to drink.

Days 5-6

The final travel day will bring you back to the pickup point. You’ll travel in the afternoon back to Holmen Husky, and spend dinner and the last night at the lodge. In the morning, we’ll serve breakfast before returning you to the airport or your accommodations in Alta, full of stories and memories and pictures of your exciting adventure.
