Looking for a work experience placement? Does a week in Arctic Lapland with Huskies sound cool?
Learn to drive a dogsled, survive in the Arctic wilderness, care for Huskies, good kennel husbandry, teamwork and many other skills on our 1 week Education Course, designed for students, beginners and rookies. Taught by a professionally qualified British School Teacher with 25 years experience, we can provide certified work experience and college forms completion for you.
Day 1 Arriving at your Cabin or Hostel in the evening allows for your travel here. We give you a welcome and safety briefing, instruction, itinerary and provide you Arctic Clothing and Gear. After this you can join in with some fun team building "Snow Games".
Day 2-6 You'll eat breakfast together as a team every morning. We collect you and take you to and from Lapland Ranch. Each day we break for a campfire lunch and questions.
You get to meet all our Huskies, have a kennel tour, receive instruction on caring for and handling sleddogs, practice driving a dogsled, starting with a small Husky team on our Nature Trail, by the end of the week you will be heading out on Guided Tours into the Wilderness with more dog power. Arctic survival skills are taught and you'll spend a night in our Wilderness Tipi Camp as a group. You won't leave without crossing the Arctic Circle by dogsled and receiving Lapland Ranch's certificate of achievement. You will learn and partake in cooking delicious dinners over the campfire and spend a lot of time learning about all the care the dogs require, including kennel husbandry, genetics, nutrition, race team training, tourism and guiding and much more. Additionally there are lots of other fun activities included such as Ice Fishing, Snowshoeing and Lapland Ranches very own "Snow Games".
Each day is different and the course is progressive, challenging you more and more each day. Your dogsled trips travel across a variety of frozen rivers and lakes, white powdered tundra and majestic lapland forest. By the time you leave Lapland Ranch, you will have a good understanding of professional canine athletes, good dog care, sled driving and wilderness skills.
