A dog team with 4-6 dogs takes you on an exciting dog sledding trip in Gratangen’s deep forests! After the fantastical trip, you may join us in a heated lavvu, where you join us in a magical Northern Lights Ceremony, together with a Sami shaman.


Join us in the wilderness and let some lightening fast paws draw you through mystical nature. We travel through harsh and changing nature, through woods, along rivers, through dales and over hills, in a landscape that makes you breathless. But what do we do afterwards? Then we relax as we become familiar with the mystical in Sami culture. We eat Sami food, listen to stories from Sápmi, and take part in ancient Sami ceremonies.

Did you know that our forefathers like to dance in the sky on freezing cold winter nights? They appear in their very best, while they wave to us. In Sami, we say Guovssahas, in Norwegian nordlys. Would you dare to wave back? Maybe it is better to take part in a ceremony that prepares you to greet guovssahas? According to Sami folk beliefs, our forefathers’ souls live in the Northern Lights, and therefore a ceremony is held so that the Northern Lights may reveal themselves. A holy drink will be served with the ceremony.

At the end bidos, a traditional Sami meal, will be served, along with coffee and cakes. There will also be vegetarian food. This is an experience you won’t soon forget. In Sami tradition, we respect the Northern Light, because it's our forefather's souls, dancing in the sky. Now you have a chance to meet your forefathers.
