Weekend getaway into winter wonderland

Would you like to to spend a weekend with good food in a snow covered winter wonderland? Visit us in the beautiful Swedish Lapland and enjoy the quiet of the nordic nature in a family atmosphere, with local delicacies. If you are lucky, you can even experience the dance of the northern lights on night sky.

Intinerary

Day 1 (Friday): Arrival in Arvidsjaur
You will be picked up from the Arvidsjaur airport and brought toour huskyfarm. You will receive the most important information regarding the next couple of days. Then you are free to get settled in your room.

Day 2 (Saturday): Dog sled tour

On your first day, you will glide across frozen lakes and swamps and through snow-covered forests in a group of 2–6 dog sleds.

Following a 30 minute introduction and familiarization of dog sleds by an experienced musher, you will be able to participate in a guided dog sled tour through the winter wonderland of Northern Sweden. You will experience the strength, will and excitement of our huskies first hand.
After breakfast you will get your rental winter clothing and equipment (shoes, snow pants, snow jackets) for the following days.
Our huskies are curious, cuddly and love contact with our guests. The spark of excitement will ignite and you will notice a pleasant sense of calmness wash over you. After an approximately 2 hour drive with the dog sleds, you will stop in a traditional Kåta that is situated right on the edge of a large lake and in between beautiful mountains. A delicious, home-made game soup will already be bubbling over the fire when you arrive. After a comforting rest, you will drive another 2 hours back to the husky farm, where coffee and home-made baked goods will be waiting for you.

Day 3 (Sunday): Culinary Snow Shoe Hike
At home in the great outdoors – is there anything more comforting than a delicious meal around the campfire amidst magnificent nature? We offer you more than just a normal snow shoe hike – this is a wonderful culinary experience. Your professional guide will provide you with wild treats, as well as with interesting facts about the flora and fauna of your surroundings. You will try to guess animal tracks and will learn more about the real-life Treebeard.
After breakfast you will get you rental equipment (snow shoes, walking sticks) and receive an introduction into snow shoe hiking. Then you will embark on a 2-hour tour near the Vittjåkk-Akkanålke nature reserve. On the edge of the snow-covered forest, in cover of the wind, you will encounter a warm campfire. You will enjoy a three-course meal, prepared by your guide, amongst the solitude and vastness of Lapland.

You will learn how to brew real Scandinavian coffee and why cheese is included in its recipe. Your lunch will consist of traditional delicacies, prepared with local ingredients.

Following this relaxing lunch break you will make your way back across the frozen lakes and swamps. Back on the husky farm another culinary highlight awaits you: flame salmon prepared upon the open fire. The traditional Sami flatbread, called Gáhkku, is served on the side. The flatbread is freshly baked for you on the side of the fire. The day ends with warm blueberry soup for dessert and a fond recap of the day.

Day 4 (Monday): Departure
After a good breakfast you will be brought to the Arvidsjaur airport.
