Activities

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!

Igloo Interlude

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. Your igloo awaits just a short drive from your hotel in Karesuando.
Inside, the igloo is surprisingly warm and cosy (once you are nicely tucked inside your Arctic sleeping bag!). The ice bed has a snow surround and is covered with warm reindeer hides, for a memorable nights sleep. Candlelight lends the whole experience a romantic and special atmosphere.

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.
