Midnight sun hike with pack dogs
From end of May to end of July we are lucky to see the midnight sun in Karasjok. “We should not sleep away the summer night, it is too light for that” says the Norwegian folk song. Listen to the silence in nature during nighttime and feel that we are of the same kin as the earth. Your guide will share her/his knowledge about the area, wildlife and outdoor skills.
Join us and the pack dogs on a hike into the mountains under the midnight sun. We will spend approximately four hours outdoors where we will walk to the mountain "Haldevidda" to enjoy the midnight sun. We will make a fire and enjoy some homemade snacks.
This adventure starts at Engholm Husky Lodge, just outside Karasjok. You will meet your guide and the dogs that will join us at our hike. We are then ready to set off.
We hike to the top of "Haldevidda", a summit about 2.5 kilometeres from the Lodge. We will climb approximately 200 meters of altitude from the Lodge to the top of the mountain. We allow plenty of time and have several stops along the way.
As we reach higher up, we are rewarded with a wonderful view of the valley with the river Karasjohka. We will also be able to see the high mountains in Stabbursdalen National Park "Gaissane". To the east we can look into Finland. When we reach the top, we will make a fire and eat some homemade snacks while we are enjoying the view and the midnight sun. The bright light and the sight of the sun that never sets makes it hard to comprehend that it is so late.
Finally we will have to end the adventure and return to the Lodge.
Even though we may not be able to see the sun on our hike because of the weather, we will still have a nice walk into the mountain and enjoy time around the fire. You also have the opportunity to get knowledge from your guide about the area, nature and wildlife.
