Combination Arctic-Survival and Mushing Course

This 7-day package combines 3-days of sledding with 2 days of arctic survival skills. However, we run the 3 days of sledding a little differently from normal, with shorter days leaving more time for survival and bushcraft exercises also in the evenings. The package includes transfers to the farm from Enontekiö airport and we are also happy to provide advice or to organise transfers, at cost, for those travelling through Kittilä.
