For the ultimate short break why not experience the thrill of an overnight husky safari in Finnish Lapland, journeying from the comfort of a small boutique hotel to overnight at a wilderness cabin in the heart of nature.
Driving your own team of dogs you'll have the chance to become a true 'musher' as you set off through the frozen landscape of the Pyhä-Luosto area. After a campfire lunch and a full day out with the dogs you will arrive at your simple, yet cosy, cabin where you and your fellow mushers will help to look after the dogs, collect water for cooking, fire up the sauna and prepare your evening meal together. Before retiring for the evening enjoy a warming sauna or maybe head outside. Out here in the wilderness away from any artificial lights you may be privileged enough to witness the magical beauty of the aurora borealis.
According to experts, 2013-14 is set to be one of the best periods in recent times to view the northern lights so make sure you do not miss the chance to see some fantastic displays that will make your husky adventure even more memorable.
After arriving back at base return to your hotel for a final night of luxury. With its north facing guest rooms, delicious Lappish cuisine and exemplary hospitality it's the perfect way to end your winter dog sledding adventure.
You have the option on your final evening to swap your mode of transport and head out by snowmobile to the Aurora Kota. Here you will be treated to a fascinating northern lights presentation which offers a greater insight into the science and myths behind the aurora borealis. As you return to the hotel by snowmobile you may want to keep one eye on the night sky.
