Day One: Welcome the Arctic Realm

Day Two: Harness the Adventure

After breakfast, get ready for the real adventure to begin. We’ll whisk you away to our mushers camp to meet our lively sled dogs and learn the art of dog sledding. Our experienced mushers will teach you the techniques of riding the dog sled and the rules of the trail. You will learn how to prepare all the equipment and make sure we don’t run out of anything in the following days.

Ready ? Last sip of warm coffee and let the adventure begin!

Each participant will have the incredible opportunity to guide their own team of 4 to 8 energetic dogs. As you traverse the snow-covered trails, you’ll be in awe of the breathtaking Arctic scenery surrounding you. At the end of the day’s journey, we’ll ensure the dogs are well taken care of, fed, and the camp is set up.(We will spend the night in a lumber cottage). 

After dinner there will be time to try a real local adventure: a Finnish sauna, enveloped in the warmth of rustic wood or if the sky will be clear: we will search the night sky for the enchanting dance of the aurora borealis.

Days Three and Four: Frosty Trailblazing

More thrilling days as continuation of our expedition along the frosty Arctic trails. Marvel at the stunning landscapes as you glide through this winter wonderland. Each day will bring new adventures and unforgettable moments.
