Ultimate Expedition

Season: April (Upon REquest)
Duration: 6 Days / 5 Nights

This trip is for the most adventurous of our guests. Those with a strong desire to get away from the comforts of daily life and into nature, in a way that they have never experienced before. We’ll be traveling from mountain cabin to mountain cabin across the vast and beautiful Finnmark Mountain Plateau, with the possibility of the northern lights visiting at night.

You’ll live like a musher, tending to and handling your own team of huskies and traveling about 30-40 km on the sled each day. But mushing is more than the time you spend on the sled. You’ll learn how to harness, feed and care for your own team of huskies – just like any other musher would. Up in the mountains, nature rules and we dance to the sound of its drum, adapting to its changing beats. Just as it should be.

  • Transport from and to Alta city centre
  • All dog sledding clothing and equipment
  • Approximately 60 minute long dog sled ride on the first evening to train for the longer trips, including instructions on how to harness the dogs and set up your team

Perfect trip from start to finish.

The staff couldn’t have been any more helpful, engaging or knowledgable. The facilities are second to none, and the rooms are better than the photos. Then comes the tour itself, totally magical, we got involved in everything, feeding, harnessing and attaching dogs to the line which made the trip even better. Felt safe and exhilarated all at the same time. Stayed in three overnight lodges on the plateau, all warm and cosy with sauna. Take your sauna gear they provide towels. I could go on for days about this trip and still wouldn’t be able to describe how good this tour was so book it yourself and see. One tip, use their boots and gloves and take lots of thermal socks. By the way we travel a lot and know when the bar has been raised.
