25.12. CHRISTMAS DAY
HOHOHO MERRY CHRISTMAS!
After enjoying breakfast at the Hotel, it'st time to meet the amazing huskies. A short transfer takes you to the husky farm, where the enthusiastic arctic sled dogs greet you with barking and jumping - as if they were saying, come on, let's go. Huskies are passionate about running and that is why they are eager to take off with you in their sledge. But first things first: instructions on safety and driving. You and a friend are sharing a team of huskies and can take turns in mushing (driving) and being a passenger. The route of 14-18 km (depending on weather and snow conditions as well as driving skills) takes you through an enchanted winter landscape. There will be stops when you can change places as musher and passenger. You will also have some photogenic moments midst the stunning nature and with the beautiful dogs. Once they have ran off some energy, they are calmer and let you enjoy the silent drive. Back at the farm we will gather around the camp fire to hear the mushers tell about life with huskies. You will of course also have time to cuddle and pat your newfound friends before it is time to leave the husky farm. Duration 2 hours. Includes: return transfers, winter clothing, guided husky safari (duration 1 - 1,5 hrs), visit of the husky farm.
A delicious Christmas Day dinner is served at your Hotel in the evening.
