AI12: Northern Night with Huskies

Holmen Husky Lodge will pick you up in Alta city center and bring you out to their farm. It’s not very far, but Alta is so close to the wilderness that you will already feel like you are in a remote location. You will check in and get comfortable in your surroundings – if you just arrived in Alta, then this is the perfect time to listen to the natural rhythm around you and start to slow down and match its pace.

In the evening, a delicious dinner is served in the lodge’s dining room: a beautifully renovated barn. Then, join your friends – new or old – in our cozy common areas and relax with a drink of your choice, and swap stories about your recent travels and adventures. Make sure to leave time for a dip in the Jacuzzi and a visit to the sauna for that extra touch of luxury.

When it’s time for bed, you’ll head to your tent… but this is no camping tent! Our lavvos are insulated against the winter’s cold, and come with a double bed (with comforters and heated blankets just in case), and a wood-burning stove at one edge of the tent so you can watch the crackling fire as you curl up in bed. One section of the lavvo has been replaced with a floor-to-top window. On clear nights, you can watch the stars travel past overhead, and if you’re lucky you might get a glimpse of our local light show, the Northern Lights!

After a restful night, you’ll wake in time for a good breakfast, and then it’s time to finally ride out with the dogs you’ve been around since the day before. After dressing warmly as needed with suits provided by the Lodge, you will receive safety instructions and then head out with a guide, 1 driver and 1 passenger per sled. The time and distance on the tour depends on weather and snow conditions, but normally lasts for approximately an hour. If desired, the driver and passenger can switch roles at the halfway point.

When you return to the lodge, there will be time to hear stories about life as a racing musher in Alta over something hot to drink. Then, it’s back to Alta city center with your fresh memories… unless… if you just can’t bear to leave yet, you could always stay for lunch and THEN return to town!

This package includes transport to and from Alta city center, dinner and overnight accommodation, use of the sauna and Jacuzzi, breakfast the next day, extra clothing if needed, instructions on handling a dogsled, the dogsled tour itself, a hot beverage and conversation afterwards.
