The trek to the wilderness camp takes us through beautiful and peaceful pine forests surrounded by high mountains.
The wilderness camp has an idyllic location beside a small lake, which has always had excellent fish stocks. We will light the open fire inside our lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent). This is the ideal place to warm up and enjoy a delicious lunch. The predominant fish species is Arctic char, but catching these big, nice fish is not always an easy task!
If we are lucky, we will eat fresh, self-caught Arctic char for lunch. If the fish are not biting, we will grill the delicacies we have bought on the fire.
The area has a rich animal life, such are hares, foxes and moose, as well as bird such as eagles and the rough-legged buzzard.
This trek is not very demanding and most people manage to reach the wilderness camp in under 30 minutes.
We need some equipment and are accompanied by one of our huskies – Javri, Phelps, Atlas or Bruneo – to pull it by sled. Huskies are social creatures and love to work and help their best friends!
Bring your camera, as there are many photo opportunities!
