Glamping Husky Adventure

SHALL WE GO AND PACK?

Glamping Lavvo and Husky Adventure Holiday in Norway

This holiday has all the vital ingredients of a comfortable, yet adventurours Arctic adventure: an extended dog-sledding trail, mountain cabin, sauna, hot tub and an overnight stay in a glamping tent. All of this immerses you into Northern Norway's culture and wilderness with the help of local guides - both of the human and canine variety. After darkness descends, this wilderness location becomes witness to sightings of the Northern Lights, with luck you may view them during your stay. This holiday is perfect for romantic breaks and honeymoons and to give you a great introduction into dog-sledding.

ITINERARY

WHAT, WHERE & WHEN

Day 1:

Arrive at Alta airport and take a short taxi transfer (6 minutes) into Alta Center (not included). From the city centre, your transfer will collect you and bring you to Holmen Husky farm. Get ready to spend the next few days with your new furry four legged friends. On the first day you will start your adventure familiarising yourself with the huskies and the gear. In the afternoon you will enjoy dinner followed by some relaxation as you'll spend the evening enjoying a dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub.

You'll stay overnight in a cosy lavvo glamping tent. The tents come equipped with a wood burner stove that will keep you nice and warm during the cold Arctic night. Don't forget to gaze at the night sky for any sightings of the Northern Lights through the floor to ceiling window.

Day 2:

A new day and a new arctic adventure to look forward to. Your husky sledding guides will set up the gear and the dogs, and you'll make your way to the starting point at Finnmarksvidda mountain. From this starting point you will sled into the wilderness with your team of dogs while you enjoy the stunning Arctic scenery. The huskies will be full of energy and you will stop en route to recharge your batteries and theirs' with some lunch.

Tonight you will stay in the mountain cabin where you'll enjoy a dinner and perhaps some refreshing beverages followed by some rewarding downtime in the relaxing sauna.

Day 3:

Today you will make an early start. Enjoy your breakfast and spend time with your team of dogs before you set off for your return trip. You will go back to the starting point at Finnmarksvidda mountain, a trek of 30km. From there you will travel back to Holmen Husky Lodge where you will spend your last night before you bid farewell to your new friends.

Day 4:

Today you can choose to return to Alta airport or extend your stay in the Arctic with more winter adventures. Choose to make a visit to Bjornfjell mountain lodge and combine your husky days with some downhill skiing in Sarves Alta resort.
