Do you like to travel off the beaten path? Are you looking for a new challenge? Here's your chance to lead the way and make your own trail.
Before we head out into Northern Saskatchewan's remote wilderness, we will brood over the maps together, pick our route and get ready for a unique and truly authentic wilderness adventure: You will lead the way by snowshoe, breaking trail for the expedition's dog team, that will carry your winter tent and gear. No worries, though: Your experienced guides are always close by to make sure you won't get lost!
Towards evening, we will pick a campsite along the trail and set up our own winter camp. You will help setting up a trapper-style wall tent, cut fire wood for the night and look after the dogs' needs. There is nothing like sleeping on a bed of spruce boughs, snug in your sleeping bag, the tent stove crackling. Maybe you will even have some energy left to go for a night walk under the Northern Lights.
The next day we will spend exploring the area, breaking our own trail with snowshoes. Today you will have the chance to take a break on the back of the runners, taking turns with your fellow expedition members. This night we will have lots of time for campfire tales. Tell us about your own adventures or ask our guides about their Arctic expeditions, the history of the area or their experiences in dog sled racing.
The next morning we will head back after breakfast to give you enough time to head home.
