Ever wanted to explore the Arctic nature from the dog sled like the old adventurers? To experience how your body adapts when the comforts of daily life disappear and it is just you and the huskies against the elements? You have come to the right place.
This trip is for the most adventurous of our guests. The ones that harbour a strong desire to get away from the comforts of daily life and into nature, in a way that they have never experienced before.
You’ll be spending the first day to learn about the equipment and the sled dogs. The experience is all hands on, you’ll be harnessing and taking care of the sled dogs, as well as getting a feel of life on the sled on the first day. Of course, you’ll also get a taste of luxury with a delicious dinner, outdoor Jacuzzi and a night in our special Tipi Bungalows, the evening before take off.
The next day, the adventure and a different life begin. A life up in the mountains, travelling 30-40 km each day through the Arctic wilderness between the mountain lodges. For the next few days you’ll be a dog musher, measuring yourself against the elements of the Arctic. Here nature rules and we dance to the sound of its drum, adapting to its changing beat.
On day five you’ll return to Holmen Husky Lodge. Here we’ll offer you the perfect ending to an adventure in rugged nature; tasty food, a shower and a warm bed, under the northern lights. Let the memories of the experience sink in and relax, before you return to regular life the next day after breakfast. One adventure richer.
