Welcome to the Arctic Circle!
The Arctic Circle is one of the 5 major lines of latitude that circle Earth. It lies at 66o33'47.3" making it the Northern most line. The others are; the Tropic of Cancer, the Equator, the Tropic of Capricorn and the Antarctic Circle.
The Arctic Circle marks the southern most point from the North Pole that the sun does not set below the horizon for at least 24 hours during the summer; know as the "midnight sun" and where the sun does not rise above the horizon for at least 24 hours during the winter; known as the "polar night". It isn't dark all day though, it causes 6-9 amazingly colourful Twilight hours!
Everything North of the Arctic Circle is known as "The Arctic". It is a big deal to cross this famous line and even more incredibly special to be pulled across the Arctic Circle and welcomed into the Arctic by a team of Huskies. All our tours cross the Arctic Circle, where we will take a short stop so you can take photos and mark the occasion with a little celebration. Each guest receives a certificate of the achievement included in the tour.
If you're keen to tick off 3 of your bucket list adventures (Husky driving being the first, crossing the Arctic Circle the second), we offer an Overnight Adventure, that includes driving a husky team to our Wilderness Tipi camp which is situated exactly on the Arctic Circle for you to brave "Camping in the Arctic" overnight. And if you are lucky, Miss Aurora Borealis might give you a spectacular display of the Northern Lights to tick off number 4, while you cook sausages on the camp fire and listen to our huskies howl at the dancing polar night sky.
