    Morning visit to a local reindeer herder's farm, short tour on traditional reindeer sleds; lunch at ice village; evening Northern Lights snowmobile excursion.

    After a hearty Finnish breakfast we transfer to a local reindeer herder's farm to learn about the life and ways of the Lappish reindeer herder. We will be shown how to throw the Lappish lasso, or 'suopunki', and also experience a short 3km ride on a traditional reindeer sled. We will then have lunch in a local ice hotel, which displays ice sculptures designed by local artists. In the afternoon there will be time to relax and unwind in the sauna. Dinner will then be taken in a Kota (a traditional structure shaped like a teepee) to sample traditional local foods. After digesting, we then suit up and head into the wilderness on snowmobiles in search of the Northern Lights. Our route takes us on a 20km circuit to the top of a nearby fell, where we will enjoy some warm drinks and hopefully a glimpse of the Aurora over the vast untouched Arctic wilderness.

    Morning dogsledding near national park with picnic lunch; evening transfer to wilderness cabin, after-dinner Northern Lights snowshoe excursion.

    This moring we head to the husky kennels where we will meet our friendly teams, who will be extremely happy to see you. After a short lesson on the basics of dogsledding we head out, 2 to a sled, for a 17 km 'mush' on pre prepared sled tracks. After picnic lunch prepared on an open fire in the woods we then head back to base. The afternoon is free to relax. Once the sun is firmly below the horison, we then transfer to our wilderness cabin (approx 35mins). Situated deep in the forest our cabin is surrounded by 0 light pollution and is the perfect place to spot the Northern Lights from. After dinner there will be a chance to don our snowshoes and head out into the wilderness in search of the Northern Lights.
