Sled dog overnight tour
Duration: 19 hours Suitable for: Everyone Included: Your own dog sled, accommodation in wilderness cabin (shared double room), wholesome sauna experience with sauna snacks, three course dinner & breakfast Gather at: Meeting Point
Drive your own dog sled and sleep in a wilderness cabin. A fantastic winter adventure with dogs and a night in the wilderness. Take the opportunity to try the sauna and look for the northern lights.
On this top-of-the-range overnight excursion you will drive your own team of huskies and have plenty of time to get to know the dogs and their personalities. The tour begins at the kennel with an introduction to equipment and safety. The dogs howl eagerly before the start but as soon as you lift the snow anchor the chorus goes silent and the focus is on the trail ahead. The night is spent in a cosy wilderness camp with access to a wood-heated sauna. On a clear night there are excellent opportunities for northern lights viewing. Sauna snacks, dinner and breakfast are included. The next morning the journey continues towards the kennel, where the dogs are unharnessed before you receive a transfer back to the hotel. Enjoy the tranquility and the sound of the dog’s paws against the snow while you are driving deeper into the woods. Eventually you reach a cozy wilderness camp, secluded in the forest. Warm up in the wood-fired sauna and nibble on the sauna snacks that work up your appetite. You are served a delicious two-course dinner and hopefully you will see the northern lights during the evening. You sleep in a shared double room with breakfast the next morning. After breakfast you help to harness the dogs and drive your own dog sled back to the Husky Homestead again. The tour ends with a transfer back to Icehotel.
