This 4 night / 5 day Lapland Winter Activity holiday includes two thrilling excursions that will give you plenty of opportunities to befriend these beautiful creatures and marvel at their eager enthusiasm for work – a Northern Lights husky safari and then a full day Husky Adventure!
This trip offers the chance to explore Lapland by husky, discover the beauty of Karesuando and the surrounding area and, if that's not quite enough, there are numerous optional excursions that you can book to make your holiday even more special.
Northern Lights husky safari (2hrs)
Husky Adventure (full day)
Loan of thermal suits and boots
Also included: All taxes and government air passenger duty, welcome meeting.
Your Husky Sled Adventurer break begins with a flight from your chosen UK airport to Kiruna in Northern Sweden. From here, you will make the 2 hour transfer to Karesuando - a spectacular journey, travelling through the majestic forests and passing countless frozen lakes. The charming village of Karesuando will then be the base for your Arctic adventure, from where you will venture out on the exciting activities detailed below before flying back from Kiruna.
We’ll organise the running order according to the local conditions while you’re there so a set itinerary will be provided at a later date. You will also have the opportunity to choose from our programme of optional excursions: maybe try your hand at snowmobiling or spend a night in an igloo – a definite highlight of our Arctic Spirit programmes!
Northern Lights Husky Safari
Duration: Two hours
Take a magical evening safari on a sledge pulled by a team of dogs, hopefully travelling under the beautiful Northern Lights (of course, this cannot be guaranteed). Two adults share a sled and dog team.
Full Day Husky Sled Adventure
Duration: Full Day
Travelling through the snow-clad forest with your dog team, you will arrive at a reindeer reserve. Here you will linger long enough to learn about the secrets of reindeer herding. Continuing further you will stop for warming lunch amid the wilderness, before returning to the husky farm, where your dogs will at last enjoy a well-earned rest and perhaps a treat or two!
Fell Viewpoint Snowmobile Safari
A snowmobile tour to a breathtaking vantage point on one of the local fells, with far-reaching views. Based on two adults sharing a snowmobile. **
Not many people can say they have spent the night in an igloo, in the heart of the Arctic wilderness. But that is the extraordinary experience you can enjoy (or brave!) during your Arctic Spirit break. Inside, the igloo is surprisingly warm and cosy. The ice bed has a snow surround, covered with warm reindeer hides. We will provide you with an Arctic sleeping bag. Candlelight lends the whole experience a romantic and special atmosphere. And don't worry, there is the back-up of a warm room, just in case you feel the chill!
Cross-Country Ski School and Tour
The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a great choice for cross country skiing. There are long wilderness trails, some groomed and illuminated, with one located next to the hotel. You will receive ample tuition before trying a short skiing trip. It's not as complicated as it looks and great fun too. Guiding and equipment included. On completion of this tour, Ski hire is available for £20 per person.
Sámi Museum and Snow Castle
The small Sámi museum at Hetta (about 50mins drive) provides a fascinating insight into the culture and traditions of the Sámi people. The ice castle, reconstructed every year, features a number of rooms with ornate ice carvings.
Ice Fishing by Snowmobile
This is a great trip for all the family. Travelling by snowmobile along a small stretch of the 200km Victoria Route, inaugurated by Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, you arrive at a frozen lake where you can try traditional ice-fishing. Once you have drilled a hole in the ice, you may even catch your lunch. **
Northern Lights Husky Safari
Take a magical evening safari on a sledge pulled by a team of dogs. You will travel across frozen lakes and through silent forests and hopefully you will glimpse the beautiful Northern Lights evolving overhead (of course, this cannot be guaranteed).
Enjoy a visit to the world-famous Ice Hotel, a building carved entirely from the ice of the nearby River Torne. Here you can marvel at the chiselled, chilly interior, handcrafted anew each winter. Please note this excursion is only available from January.
The ultimate experience for true romantics. Your night-time snowmobile ride will take you to your private kota (Sami tent), where a warming fire will await. The champagne is on ice, and the chocolate fondue is ready to enjoy as the Arctic night unfolds around you…
