Frosty Trails is a small, family based company, located on the Arctic Circle. We emphasize on a genuine, personal experience, and prioritize good dog care. During your stay you will be part of a small crew of max 4 clients, guided by an experienced dog musher.
Sunday On your day of arrival, you will spend the night in our comfortable lodge, right beside the kennel. You will meet your guide and will be introduced to the dogs and your fellow mushers. We do a kit check and talk you through the program of the coming week. Possibility to enjoy a relaxing sauna – and arrive in Lapland mentally!
Monday – Tuesday The next day we will teach you the basics of dog mushing and prepare our sleds. We’ll enjoy an early lunch around a fire in a tipi tent, before we head out on our first day tour. Even the next day we will go out on a day tour. After lunch we will try our luck with ice fishing!
Wednesday – Friday Today we will mush a good 25 km before we arrive at the old fishing cabin on the lake. This cabin will be our base for the next two nights. Here we park the dogs for the night, lay out hay for them, and put on their dog jackets. We still have to do some small chores, like getting water for the kitchen, and feeding the dogs. Then we will enjoy a nice dinner inside the warm cabin. We have a good view on the horizon here in case there are northern lights…
On the last day, we will even meet Anna and her reindeer. She will tell us about her life in a reindeer herding family, as well as Sami culture.
After this visit, it is time to heat up the sauna, before we enjoy a nice dinner in the lodge!
Saturday After breakfast, it is time to go home again – but you will look back on an unforgettable week!
Participants: Min. 2, max. 4
Comfort level: The lodge in our kennel is a comfortable log house with shared bedrooms. It does have electricity, but no running water. There is a sauna where you can have a wash. There is an outside toilet.
The fishing cabin, where we will stay for two nights, is a wilderness cabin. There is no running water, or electricity.
Fitness level: For this trip you need to be in a good physical shape. You are expected to take care of your own team, like harnessing the dogs. You need to be able to run short stretches behind the sled in the up hills. We will cover between 20 and 30 km every day.
You will be expected to help take care of the dogs as well as help with daily chores such as fetching wood and water.
The weather, snow conditions and reindeer herds movements might cause us to change the program. However, we will do everything to make this week an unforgettable experience for you!
During the trip, we will all mush dog teams. Even the guide is mushing his own dog team, so there is no skidoo with us on the trip.
We do use a skidoo for preparing the dog trails and logistics in advance. This is a skidoo with a 4 stroke engine – the cleanest engine that is currently available.
Travel: Flight to Stockholm and then the comfortable nighttrain to Murjek, transfer to Kåskats. Alt. flight to Kallax Airport in Luleå, then connecting bus to Kåskats.
