Day 1  : KIRKENES - EXCLUSIVE DOG SLEDDING TRIP IN THE BORDERLAND WITH OVERNIGHT STAY IN A NORWEGIAN CABIN

Guests arrive individually and transfer to the hotel.  12:00 noon pick up from hotel or airpot. We will travel by dog sled  through the Russian and Norwegian border to a cozy cabin in the forest where lunch will be served around a warm fireplace. Eat a delicious Norwegian dinner and spend the night in the Myrbekk-Koia cabin in the Pasvikdalen Valley. There is no electricity or running water in the cabin, just you and nature and alluring Northern Lights. Sauna is available for you to enjoy. Guest have to be in good physical shape as you will be required to attach and remove the harnesses and drive the dog sledges. OVERNIGHT IN THE NORWEGIAN FOREST CABIN

Day 2  : NORTHERN LIGHTS-KING CRAB CATCH AND DINNER - SNOWMOBILE

This morning, breakfast is served to both dogs and guests before we go by dog sledges to the valley’s biggest husky kennel.  After lunch we transfer back to Kirkenes, arrival time 15:30 (3:30pm). After a short rest at the hotel we will pick you up at 18:00 (6:00pm). We will travel by bus to the area where the locals catch King Crabs. Once we’re there, we’ll get a better look at the pots (traps) and be able to see how the crab catching process works. The trapped crabs will be transported to our camp in Sandnes where we’ll be enjoying them later on. Get ready to jump on a snowmobile (two people max per mobile) from our camp and take an exhilarating ride on a guided tour through the area. As our lunch is cooking, we’ll learn about the history of Pasvik and drive over the ice until we reach an old Norwegian farm built in 1854. As we drive, we’ll be stopping periodically to look for the Northern Lights. After the tour, we will arrive back at our lavvu (a Scandinavian dwelling similar to a tipi) and warm up as we enjoy fresh, delicious King Crab and sip coffee, tea, or wine. A true Norwegian experience! After everyone has finished eating, we will get back on the bus and head to the hotel in Kirkenes to settle in for the night.

Day 3  : KIRKENES DEPARTURE

Breakfast is served at the hotel this morning and then all guests will check out. Individual departures will take place for guests leaving today. Other guests hoping to extend their stay will continue on from here, enjoying numerous optional activities and additional overnight stays.
