The spring sun comes to the snow in the valleys, the days are full of light, and the first dogs start already with the change of coat. Then it is time for the highlight and the end of the season: We drive into the mountains and are impressed by the breathtaking scenery of snow-covered mountains. Experience with us an unforgettable winter tour in the wilderness of Lapland.
On the day of arrival you will get to know our camp and our huskies, and we will discuss the first details for the next few days.
The second day is filled with the preparations of the tour. You get acquainted with harnesses, lines and sledges and your husky team. On your first training tour you get used to the sled and its driving behaviour and experience your team in action for the first time. We divide luggage and equipment and discuss the weather situation, as we also make our tour planning dependent on the respective weather and snow situation.
The next morning we load dogs, sledges and equipment and head for our starting point at the foot of the mountains. We feel the enthusiasm of the dogs. With the click of the start carabiner we say goodbye to civilization for four days and are alone with ourselves and the dogs. Soon the tree line lies behind us and fascinating mountain panoramas reward us for the efforts of the ascent.
Teamwork becomes the key to experience and success. From time to time it is necessary to help the dogs in deep snow or on the mountain.
We spend the night in tents and in game huts, chop wood for the fire and melt our water from snow.
With a little bit of luck the northern lights illuminate the tent night, we have become a part of this mountain world.
On the fourth day of the tour, our trail takes us back to the comforts of civilization.
For bad weather situations we have planned a reserve day.
In the camp we will have a wood stove sauna and a cosy dinner. We have time to process the experiences of the last days and of course to tell a lot of stories.
Previous knowledge is required.
You should have physical fitness and endurance and want to stand on the sled in all weather conditions. Teamwork is important for the success of the tour.
