Dog sledding in Norway
Just 6km from Karasjok (the Sámi capital), you can enjoy some of the best dog sledding in the world here. Book a six-day wilderness husky safari, and spend your days racing through snow-covered forests and some of the most stunning Arctic terrain you are ever likely to see. Tip: gloves, scarf and warm socks are a must.
Play at: There is not much partying to be had when you’re out in the middle of nowhere, so pack a good book and say ‘hello’ to pure relaxation at the end of the day.
Stay at: Go all back to nature and spend a night in one of the Karasjok Wilderness Cabins. Each one boasts traditional Sámi decor – think lampshades made from bird feathers to couches covered in reindeer skin.
