9 DAY SAFARI
Drive a team of our super friendly Huskies into the Arctic wilderness on our Adventure + Relax, 9 day Dogsled Safari.
Day 1 Arriving at your Hotel in the afternoon or evening allows for your travel here. After a gourmet dinner in the restaurant, you can either chill out in the Bar, Spa or your luxury room.
Day 2 Enjoy a full continental breakfast in the hotel before starting your adventure with an adrenaline pumping half day Snowmobile tour. This is a totally different way to see the Lapland scenery as it whooshes past. In the evening Lapland Ranch guides will arrive to give you a Husky briefing, instruction and provide you Arctic Clothing and Gear. After dinner, we offer some fun team building "Snow Games", before heading to the bar to relax.
Day 3 After an incredible hotel breakfast, we collect you and take you to Lapland Ranch. Here you'll meet all our Huskies on a short kennel tour, before receiving sled instruction and practice driving a Husky Team for the first time, around our Nature Trail. We break for a campfire lunch and questions. Then for the Half day Tour! Its an incredible experience to drive a team of enthusiastic Huskies into the Wild for the first time. Once you arrive at our Wilderness Tipi Camp, positioned exactly on the Arctic Circle at 66o33'45 North, you'll enjoy a delicious dinner over the campfire, help care for the dogs and spend the night in our Arctic Tipi (Lavvu).
Day 4 + 5 You will have a warm breakfast and help prepare the dogs, before setting off with your team of Huskies on our adventurous Full Day Tour. Each day is different and travels across a variety of frozen rivers and lakes, white powdered tundra and majestic lapland forest. After bedding the dogs down each night, you'll stay in a beautiful Swedish cabin with all facilities. There is the option of a Sauna Hottub Spa here.
Day 6 You'll set off on a different and slightly more challenging trail for an adventurous full day tour. Stopping for photos and coffee along the way. Overnight you will spend in a traditional Lapland wilderness cabin and can have a go at Ice Fishing on the lake.
Day 7 Heading south you'll drive the huskies on a full day tour, arriving at a beautiful Luxury Hotel, where you'll say goodbye to your Husky buddies. Take a relaxing spa, shower and sauna before joining your guide for an incredible meal, where you can celebrate and share stories of your adventure, before chilling out in the bar and your beautiful hotel room.
Day 8 Enjoy a wonderful breakfast in the Hotel. Sweden is known for its cool outdoor adventures, but also how to relax after them! So today is for you to explore the beautiful town of Overkalix, with its snow covered buildings and spectacular church. Indulge in the otherside of Arctic lifestyle with a rejuvenating Spa day, complete with Swedish Massage. There are also options of Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing or booking a Snowmobile tour. Of course you can always choose to go Dogsledding again if you're already missing your Husky friends. (One option is included in the price). Dinner is not included on this evening, to give you the choice of dinning in the local pizzeria, having a full course gourmet meal in the restaurant or even trying out your new Arctic Adventurer skills by using the outdoor grill. Retire to the bar and your hotel room that night having fully experienced Lapland and the Arctic!
