Itinerary

Day 1

Travel to Norway and arrival at Engholm Husky Lodge (EHL)

  • Lodging
  • Dinner
  • Going through the program

At EHL you are lodged in design cabins with double rooms. Single rooms are available from an additional NOK 200 per night. Dinner is served in the lodge kitchen and after that we go through the program for the week. In the evening there will be time to explore the peculiar design at the husky lodge and the surroundings around the lodge.

Day 2

  • Snow shoe hiking or cross country skiing with ice fishing
  • Lunch outdoors around an open fire

After a Norwegian breakfast we go out and fit our snow shoes or cross country skiis. Our goal for the day is a lake where we will try ice fishing for brown arctic char. We will make a fire and enjoy our lunch outdoors. After our return to the husky lodge there will be time to your own disposal. Dinner will be served in the lodge kitchen.

Day 3

  • Dog sled tour
  • Lunch outdoors around an open fire

After breakfast, you are given your own dog sled team. The guides will show you how to prepare your team and how to pack your sled and how to drive your team. When we are ready, we start out. We will enjoy our lunch packs around an open fire in the forest or on the plateau before the trip continues.

Day 4

  • Time at your own disposal
  • Northern light safari

This day has no set program before the northern light safari in the evening. You can book another guided trip, spend the day at the lodge, taking part in the daily work with the dogs or just relaxing with a book from the mushers’ library. There are kick sleds and snow shoes for your free disposal or you can visit the village Karasjok.

Karasjok is the Norwegian Sàmi capitol and there are many things to explore. You can visit the Sàmi parliament and get a guided tour or you can visit the Sàmi museum. You can explore and purchase

Sàmi arts and handcraft at the local silversmith or knife smith. Your guides will also help you if there are other activities that you wish to do.

Alfter dinner we will go out on a northern light safari. The Northern light safari starts at 8pm and takes you to the holy Mountain Halde. The Karasjok area is one of the best places in the world to see the magical Aurora Borealis. This is due to the nature given climatically and geographical conditions of inner Finnmark. The 1,5 kilometres hike from the husky lodge takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes. From Mt. Halde you have a 360 degree view to the sky and if the strange lady decides to show herself, this is the perfect stand. On this northern light safari you will also learn about the old Sámi religion and culture and about the northern lights.

Day 5

  • Visit to a Sámi reindeer herder

This day will be memorable. We travel beyond the beaten tracks by snowmobile to a winter settlement for Sámi reindeer herders who pursue their livelihood here on the winter pasture. We may spend the day together with them and join their daily life with their reindeers and get insight in their way of living and herding. This adventure is a unique privilege made available for few by a Sámi family from Karasjok.

The Sámis are the only people in Europe with indigenous status and this day will give you a unique opportunity to learn more about their centuries’ old traditions and their way of life today.

Day 6

  • Program ends after breakfast

We would like to encourage you to stay one or more extra days to see more of what Karasjok and the neighboring town Kautokeino have to offer.
