discover-the-world.co.uk/arctic-experience Talk to the experts 01737 214 257 3333On arrival at Kiruna you will be collected by your guide from the Fjellborg Husky Farm. Kenth and Ann Fjellborg, together with their staff, will be your hosts during your stay at the farm until you transfer to the Icehotel. Your accommodation is a 3 bedroom apartment with modern interior. Each bedroom has twin beds and WC; shower and sauna facilities are shared amongst your party. There is a fully equipped kitchen/diner with views over the husky kennels. Just across the frozen water of the River Torne you will see the flickering lights of Jukkasjärvi and the Icehotel. Before dinner you will have a guided tour of the kennels and a short sledge ride to get familiar with the dogs and the art of mushing. If you have children in your party they have a chance to try their own sledge as well as take a ride on a child-size snowmobile. After all this outdoor excitement, settle down for an evening meal prepared by your hosts, kick back and perhaps enjoy the sauna.In the morning you may wish to help your guide to prepare the dog teams ready for your wilderness adventure. There will be one larger team of huskies for your group and smaller teams for individuals to try their skills at mushing. Take turns driving the dog team or just sit back and relax on the guide's sledge - whatever you choose, this is definitely the most authentic way to experience the pristine surrounds. Traverse frozen lakes, glide through the forests and follow the shores of the River Torne, stopping for a traditional campfire lunch made by your guide.On arrival at the Väkkärä Wilderness Cabin your party will have exclusive use of the four bedroom master cabin. There is a lounge area with a cosy wood burner but as this is in the traditional wilderness style, the outdoor WC and wood-heated sauna are in separate buildings. There are other cabins in the surrounding area, which may share the use of the facilities. Dinner will be served in the main building by the open log fire, perfect for exchanging stories about the day's experiences. Try your luck with ice fishing and perhaps have your catch prepared as part of the dinner! Then relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity, occasionally broken only by the howl of the huskies. Here in the wilderness you are perfectly situated should the northern lights make an appearance so be sure to check the night sky from time to time.In the morning you might like to help feed the dogs and harness them ready for the drive back to the husky farm. Once there, it is time to say goodbye to the dogs and your hosts, before transferring to the Icehotel. Take time to look around and marvel at the amazing designs made of ice and snow or perhaps join one of the afternoon or evening excursions. Don't forget to try out the Icebar before settling in for the night in your Snow Room - should you prefer to upgrade to an Art Suite or stay in a warm room, please mention this at the time of booking.
