Aurora Borealis tour
Dates 2018: 18-20 Jan (4 places left), 17-19 Feb (4 places left)
This guided Aurora and dogsledding adventure is a three day tour package combined with one night in our cozy guest house called the Yellow house and the second night in our Aurora Tepee´s.
We'll welcome you at the airport or bus/train station in Lycksele around 11 AM, and transfer you to our guest house in Ekorrsele. Lunch will be served in the guest house and you will also get your warm winter clothes.
We start this tour mid-day and will run the dog teams in the dark, lighted up with head torches and hopefully Aurora borealis dancing across the sky.
Just the slight sound of the working dogs and runners in the snow will be with you for that day. You get to know your dogs and start to form a personal relationship. With every stop, and praise for the dogs, they learn to trust you and you to trust them.
You stay in our cozy Yellow house the first night, eat local food and drink a glass of organic wine.
After breakfast for us and the dogs, its time to embark the trails again. In harmony with the running rhythm of your team you will enjoy nature in a way you’ve never experienced before.
You will see some of the beautiful, remote back-country of south Lapland, and become one with your dogteam. The tour will take you over frozen lakes and rivers, up smaller mountains and through pine tree woods.
After a few hours behind the dogs we will have lunch “on the trail”. We’ll make a campfire to keep warm while we are having lunch. Maybe it will be reindeer burgers served today, or perhaps our famous smoked salmon soup, once tasted, never forgotten.
We´ll be back to the kennel late afternoon.
Dinner will be served in the guest house at 19.30 before it´s time go walk down to your Aurora Tepee for the night.
After a musher’s breakfast, we´ll go down to the kennel again to set up todays teams.
Todays tour will be a half day tour with outdoor lunch somewhere along the trail. We´ll come back to the kennel around 13.30, just in time for a quick shower before we transfer you back to Lycksele just in time for the afternoon departure back to civilization.
