Day 2 Husky Safari and Aurora Wilderness Cabin

Lunch at the hotel, then collect your overnight bag, ready for a truly unique overnight experience. Transfer to the Wilderness Cabin, a trip of around 45 minutes.

Notes:

You can upgrade your experience by swapping either your first or last night of hotel accommodation with one of these three fantastic stays in unique accommodation:
Snow Igloo: Spend an extraordinary night in a traditional snow igloo! Igloos have been used in the Northern countries for accommodation during centuries. The temperature outside can drop down to minus thirty degrees and your double bed is made of snow, but the inside temperature stays moderate. Soft and warm mattress, thick sleeping bags and hot juice ensure a warm and comfortable night. The night will be memorable! Sleeping bags and hot drinks included.
Aurora Dome Glamping: Try "glamping" or glamour camping under the northern lights! The Aurora Dome is a luxury tent, a very comfortable way to spend a night in the wilderness. The tent has a cosy bed and a fireplace, and see through side walls so you can gaze towards the northern sky with a view over the Torasjärvi Lake. The scenery to the untouched Lappish wilderness is breathtaking even on cloudy nights! Sauna, toilet and shower facilities are located nearby (50m away).
Arctic Firefox Lodge: spend a night in privacy and luxury in a lodge with it's own private sauna, and panoramic views across Lake Jeris and from your bed.

This tour is only offered for persons aged 12 years or over.

Please note that children under 18 years cannot drive the snowmobile or husky sled. They will be sitting in the guide's sled during the safaris.

To drive a snowmobile you must have a valid driving license and be 18 years of age or over. All single travellers must drive their own snowmobile solo.

The order of the activities may change according to weather and other factors.
