After you’ve settled in, take some time to unwind in the evening. Enjoy a private soak and sauna session, setting the stage for a relaxed dinner. Following your meal, venture outside and try your luck at spotting the mesmerising aurora borealis.

Day 2

Today, prepare for an exhilarating adventure as you embark on a dog sledding expedition. You’ll join a skilled team of mushers, learn the art of mushing, and take the reins of your own sled. Together with your loyal canine companions, you’ll traverse the enchanting frozen landscapes, meandering through the pristine forests and across serene lakes. A midday break will provide the perfect opportunity to savor a satisfying lunch before tending to the well-being of the huskies.

As nightfall graces the Arctic, you’re in for an astronomical treat. Join Ulf Jonsson, a passionate amateur astronomer who owns an observatory conveniently located near Brandon Lodge.

The path you tread will be determined by the month of your travel, each offering its own unique spectacle. If you’re visiting during the winter months, the snowy forests will be your playground, where you’ll rev up your snowmobile and conquer the winding trails beneath the snow-laden trees.
