Hurtigruten - "Die schönste Seereise der Welt"
This is a real adventure for those who crave a challenge and want to have a close encounter with the Arctic elements. You’ll experience a night in the Norwegian mountains and two full days of commanding your own team of Alaskan Huskies.
Before the expedition starts you get a full introduction into dog sledding. We then head out towards the mountains and, depending on weather, we drive for 5-8 hours to our campsite where you settle down for the night. You get to take care of the dogs before you set up your own camp. Hopefully the Northern Lights will appear. After breakfast the next day you will go further up the mountains and can enjoy pristine the beauty of the arctic wilderness. Possible wildlife sightings along the trail include fox, eagles, arctic and snowshoe hares, moose and reindeers. Around 17:00 you will return the Centre where we will serve a traditional sami meal “Bidos” (Reindeer meat with vegetables) in the sami tent. During the 2 day expedition hour program you will learn about dog sledding. No former experience is needed but the trip requires normal physical condition. Our alaskan huskies loves people and are very friendly so you might make some furry friends.
We run the expeditions on select days throughout the Winter. Requires good physical condition!
Minimum 2 persons per expeditions, if you are by yourself please contact you and we can find an available expedition for you.
