Today you will learn the art of mushing a team of huskies, as you go out for the day with your guide and team of dogs. In what is a ‘must do’ experience, you will be shown around the husky farm before heading out on the two-man sledges.

In the evening you will try to catch a glimpse of the northern lights at one of the Aurora Camp spots, where you will be comfortably seated in a sled and pulled by a guide’s snowmobile. There will be an open fire and warm drinks available while you wait to see if the sky will show its magic.
