The experience

A trip you will remember. This is a trip where we will drive a snowmobile up to the plateau where we will make a three course sami dinner, ice bath and take a sauna on a frozen lake. 

This trip takes you up to a very good fishing lake up in the plateau. The area has has not any light disturbance, so the chances of seeing the northern lights is better then in the city centre. We will meet up at the meeting point and go together up to one of our cabins. From there we will drive to the the lake by snowmobile. We will collect firewood and make camp at the frozen lake. We will make fire and put up the tents. We will drill a big hole in the ice and make fire in the sauna. We will make a sami dinner and tell storyes about the samis and the way of living at the coldest place in Europe. We will ice bath and take sauna. if we are lucky the northern lights will appear at the night sky and there will be optional activies.

Opplevelsen (Norwegian) 

En bucketlist tur av de sjeldne. På denne turen får du ta badstu, isbade, spise en treretters samisk middag, få et innblikk i samisk lokalhistorie og hvis vi er heldig så vil nordlyset vise seg. Turen er basert på å gjøre ting sammen ute. Vi vil møtes i Karasjok og kjøre sammen opp til et av Samipath sine hytter med bil. Derifra vil vi kjøre skuter opp til en innsjø på vidda. Der vil vi sette opp camp, samle ved til bålet, fyre opp bål i badstua, utebålet og omkledningsteltet. Der etter vil vi lage hull i isen og lage mat sammen. Underveis vil vi fortelle om hvordan det er å bo på europas kaldeste plass, den samiske levemåten og kulturen. Vi vil avslutte opplegget med isbading og badstu.
