Tour Details

Husky Lodge Safari: Exploring winter wilderness by driving your own dog team, an experience you will never forget! Especially when there is a two day safari to a wilderness cabin without electricity and lunch is made on an open fire. Very comfortable base accommodation, easy trails and gentle introduction to dog sledding make this ideal for the novice.

Superb chalet ensuite accommodation & food. Ideal safari for a gentle introduction.  Short day with huskies, then a full day tour followed by a 2 day tour staying overnight in a wilderness cabin.  Lovely gentle rolling terrain. Good for viewing Aurora.
