ARCTIC CIRCLE BASECAMP
5 Days | 4 Nights
Experience the magic of the Arctic in April, with long days, lingering sunsets, snow capped mountains, hidden mammoth tusks, migrating caribou, and shimmering spring aurora on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Head 63 miles North of the Arctic Circle to the historic gold rush community of Wiseman, Alaska for a 5 day dog sledding retreat based in the heart of the world's highest mountain range above the Arctic Circle: the Brooks Range.
Our destination is an off grid boutique wilderness retreat center situated between the dramatic mountains of Gates of the Arctic National Park and the banks of the glacier blue Koyukuk River. Here, in this spectacular location, is where we will base the next few days of dog sledding, aurora viewing, and (optional) yoga.

OFF GRID BOUTIQUE WILDERNESS RETREAT ACCOMMODATIONS
Located off the road system, Arctic Hive Wilderness Lodge offers three beautiful hand built cabins with mountain views in every direction, and plenty of windows to see the wild landscape and the northern lights! Each cabin is home to two participants in twin or double beds. All cabins are off-grid, heated with Swedish Nordic oil stoves that keep the space warm and cozy. The cabins are equipped with fresh water, coffee and tea, as well as other pleasant amenities. Enjoy the beauty of untouched nature and ultimate relaxation at Arctic Hive.
This was an incredible experience from start to finish. I would definitely do this again. I highly recommend this to anyone considering this. I can't imagine you will find a more dedicated professional who wants to build her business like Lisbet in this area. What a unique experience as I can't imagine any other company letting you drive your own sled and providing such a professional and luxury glamping experience. Highly highly recommend!!

The overnight tour was the definite highlight of my Alaska trip, and I find myself talking about it all the time. I'm in love with dog sledding...Digging in a little it also seems there's an opportunity to talk about how dog sledding done right nurtures the human-dog connection, and deepens our understanding and respect for the natural world. I certainly experienced that while taking part in the tour.
