It's summertime, and the dogs at Northern Lights Husky are taking a rest before starting their training for the next year's racing season. But even when they are on holiday, the dogs love to walk and run through the forest and the wilderness. Come join them on an overnight hike!
When you arrive at the husky farm, your hosts will give you a tour of the dog yard and you'll get a chance to meet the dogs (they are working dogs, but very friendly and eager to meet you). A few of the dogs will be chosen to accompany you on the hike, outfitted with special packs so they can carry supplies for the trip. Then you and your hosts are off and into the wilderness for an extended hike. There are opportunities to hike to a mountaintop, walk along a river, do some fishing and stop for photos of the spectacular scenery. Keep your eyes open for some of the local wildlife as you go!
At the end of the day, dinner will be served around an open fire and you'll spend the night in a tent along the way. The next day, it's back on the trail after breakfast to return home. It's a true arctic Norwegian experience!
The tour includes the time at the husky farm, the overnight hike, dinner and breakfast, tent and sleeping gear. Guests must provide their own clothing and shoes or hiking boots that are suitable for a walk through a sometimes-muddy forest.
