Quote: Snowmobiling and dog sledding over the polar ice cap was an amazing experience! We traveled over 400 miles by snowmobile and over 100 miles by dog sled.
Quote:
It was rustic, very clean, and comfortable! It was the best lodging in town for adventure travel. The rooms all have two or three bunks, and there is a sauna and an observation deck. You can stargaze and watch the Northern Lights in the winter, or look for reindeer in the summer nights of the midnight sun.

This was an incredible experience traveling over 400 miles by snowmobile and over 100 miles by dog sled. We camped on the snow and had glacier water to drink and cook with! The dogs are so powerful and difficult to control, but what fun!! iExplore did a great job! Thank you!
