    Morning dogsledding near national park; "Secrets of the Northern Lights" presentation and evening snowmobile excursion.

    This morning 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. We will then head back to the hotel where will have our lunch. In the afternoon we will enjoy a "Secrets of the Northern Lights" presentation with pancakes cooked on an open fire. An upgraded farewell dinner will then be served in the hotel restaurant 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 visit to a local reindeer herder's farm, short tour on traditional reindeer sleds; lunch at Winter village; transfer to wilderness cabin, after-dinner Northern Lights snowshoe walk.

    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 3km ride on a traditional reindeer sled. We will then have lunch at the Winter Village in the Ice Restaurant, which displays ice sculptures designed by local artists. 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. After dinner there will be a chance to don our snowshoes and head out into the wilderness in search of the Aurora. * *
