The Northern Lights season is a particularly atmospheric time of year, and dog sledding under starry skies, dancing aurora or glittering moonlight is an experience not to be missed. After helping to harness the dogs the guide will lead the way out from the yards. The eager dogs will set off at a cracking pace, but after a couple of kilometres they will settle into a comfortable speed. The guide will drive first with two guests in their larger sled, and the group will follow in two person sleds. Participants will be able to swap between mushing and enjoying the scenery from the sled. Out in the dark turn off the headlights, and after a short time the contours of the mountains will appear. Looking south, you can see that it is lighter towards the horizon. The snow covered landscape reflects light from the moon, stars and, if we are lucky, the northern lights. After the trip, enjoy a hot drink with biscuits in a heated log cabin and a chance to see some puppy huskies.
