Starting at Sollia Lodge, you will be kitted out with warm outdoor clothing: snow overalls, shoes, gloves, and hats. Then it’s time to meet the dogs before they are are harnessed to your sledge, eagerly waiting to race across the wintery landscape.

There will be two people per sledge, taking it in turns to mush the dogs while following the lead guide. The trail takes us  through an Arctic wildnerness of frozen lakes, silent forests, and snowy plateaus. We will take several breaks en route for photos, including one stop for a hot drink. As early evening approaches, the magical Northern Lights may make an appearance, making your unique dog sledding experience all the more memorable.
