Day 2 - Snow scooter tour through the winter wonderland
After breakfast, head out for a fast-paced snow scooter tour. During the briefing you will learn everything you need to know. A short round of tests will help you to familiarize yourself with the snow scooter. The drive takes us over frozen lakes, through snowcovered forests and up to the fells.
During the break your guides will make a fire and enjoy a warming coffee or lingonberry juice. After the return journey there is a warm soup in our Sami lounge. Optionally, we recommend a visit to the Arctic Moose Farm. The afternoon is free. For dinner, three courses are served in the restaurant. Then we end the day in the Sami lounge by the fire.
Day 3 - Dogsledding with local huskies
A highlight, the Siberian Huskies, a real racing team. The visit to the husky farm is very impressive. You get to know all dogs and are allowed to ask any questions that you always wanted to have answered. How do you plan a real racing team? How much do the dogs eat? Do they even sleep during a day-long race? Afterwards there is a ride on the sledge of approx. 45 minutes with a real racing team with 10-12 dogs. AMAZING! Back at the camp, the dogs can be cuddled and praised for their performance. A hot coffee and a snack are waiting for you by the fire.
Back at the lodge, a soup is served in the Sami lounge. For dinner, three courses are served in the restaurant.
Day 4 - Sámi – Culture and Reindeer
This day is dedicated to the indigenous people of the arctic tundra, the Sámi. These traditional people, who followed the reindeer herds just a few decades ago, have a lot to tell. We head north and stop at the Kattilakoski rapids. We tell you about the border river Torne, the history and the Tornedal. Then we drive to the Arctic Circle, where a joint jump over the polar circle should not be missing. About 20 minutes later we arrive at the reindeer butcher. He is a master in refining reindeer meat. In a short film we learn everything about breeding and butchery. Its smoked products had won many awards.
Back to the lodge, we visit the reindeers. We tell you everything about the cosy animals. You are allowed to go into the magical forest, meet the reindeer and also feed them. Back at the lodge, there is a warm soup in the Sámi lounge. The afternoon is free and can be spent on optional activities. 3 course dinner in the restaurant and end the day by the fire in the Sámi lounge.
