DAY 2
HUSKY SLEDDING
HUSKY SLEDDING

This morning, transfer to the husky kennels in Vuokatti, home to around 80 huskies, and get suited in your warm winter clothes. Meet and harness your sled dogs and team up in pairs of two (traditionally named Björkis) to learn how to mush your dogs along a 12km trail through the snowy winter forest. One of the most iconic yet relaxing sounds of winter in Lapland is the rhythmic padding of the husky’s paws on the snow. Stop for some hot drinks and photo opportunities before returning to your accommodation (B,L)

NORTHERN LIGHTS HUSKY ADVENTURE
NORTHERN LIGHTS HUSKY ADVENTURE

Spend the morning at leisure. If you’re brave enough, perhaps go ice swimming in Lake Nuas or make a campfire to keep warm as you enjoy the wilderness. In the late afternoon, transfer to the husky kennel for an evening adventure searching for the northern lights by dogsled. Sit back, wrap yourself in blankets and relax as your personal guide drives your sled through the winter landscape to an open frozen lake. Here, if the skies are clear, sightings of the northern lights are common and spectacular. Warm up by an open fire in a traditional Mongolian yurt and feast on a delicious picnic dinner, washed down with some hot drinks. Here, to see the northern lights dance, all you need to do is step outside the yurt and look up, before returning to hotel (B,D)
