Into the wild
Very high chances to observe northern wildlife (Moose, Caribous, Wolves, Lynx, Coyotes, Eagles) and Northern Lights
You might hear the dogs howling back to the wolves at camp. If interested you will have a chance to try out ski-joring (skiing pulled by a dog) on a frozen lake.
The itinerary of the expedition is unprecedented, the immersion in the true wilderness is striking. We might not even see anyone else on the trail.
