Experience the winter wilderness of Lapland, driving your own dog sled on this extended husky safari. For 5 days/4 nights you will travel with your own team of well trained dogs, following your guide into ancient arctic forests on the edge of the National Park Pallas-Ylläs, through swamps, over fells and frozen lakes. Breathing the cleanest air of the world and listening only to the sound of silence only “disturbed” by the running paws in the snow is a truly special and magical experience. And at night, maybe the Aurora wil light your way...........

Day 1 Arrival in Kittila and transfer to your accommodation
On arrival at Kittilä airport, and transfer to your accommodation. Welcome dinner and overnight in a safari cabin with shared facilities.

Days 2 -  5 Husky Safari in the Wilderness
After breakfast it's time for preparation of the safari equipment and a meeting with your guide, who will give you an introduction to the programme. You meet your own dog team, the sleds are packed and you are given detailed instructions on how to handle the sled and dogs. Then get ready to set off!

The route over the next few days will take us through beautiful forest scenery, over frozen lakes and along rivers. Each night is spent in different, simple but cosy shared huts without electricity or running water. Each hut has a sauna and a wilderness toilet. Your guide will take you into the vast wilderness that surrounds us here, where the silence and beauty will astonish you. And at night, all you have to do is look up to search for the fabled Northern Lights! 

Everyone takes care of their own dog team, helps to prepare the meals and make the fires. Breakfast and dinner are prepared in the huts, and lunch by open fires in the wilderness.

Day 6  Return to Civilisation!
Today you "mush" the final stretch back to your accommodation, which you should each in the late afternoon. Time for a shower and sauna, and then relax and relive your safari memories together during a delicious dinner with Lappish specialities. Overnight in a safari cabin with shared facilities.
