This amazing experience begins with a short transfer to Sollia Lodge where you will be dressed in thermal suits. Your guide will introduce you to the husky team of drivers and dogs before it’s time to set off into the snowy surroundings. With our professional mushing team driving the dogs through the darkness and into the mountains, you will be able to sit back and relax on your sled, admiring the views and watching for the majestic Aurora Borealis overhead. We weave through the forest on our way to our mountain wilderness camp. Once there, you will be able to interact with your racing huskies, and have dinner in our traditional lavvo tent, all cooked over the open fire by your guides. Being away from the lights of town, you are perfectly located to see the Northern Lights again, doing so in silence and awe.
