During this safari, you will enjoy coffee and picnic snacks by the open fire.

Duration 1,5 hour incl. transfers.

DAY 3 | Huskies & Snowshoeing

Husky Safari
In the morning, we drive you to the husky farm for your next adventure!
After a few instructions, our musher makes your husky team ready for the ride. By dog sledding, you get a totally different approach of the wilderness, its beauty and silence.
Duration 3 hours incl. transfers

Snowshoe hike into the Land of Northern Lights
Snowshoeing is probably the most peaceful way to go in search of the dancing auroras. You will hike with your guide into the quiet darkness of the forest. If you are lucky, the feeling of witnessing the magical lights when you’re surrounded by nature is one that will stay with you forever. And if the hiking doesn’t keep you warm, some hot juice will.
Duration 2,5 hours
