A tough mountain tour
Corresponding to the inquire after a short but rather tough tour, we created the Expedition Dividal Compact. The southernmost tip as well as two passages high up in the mountains (circa 1000 m above sea level) of the Dividal Nationalpark are some of the goals.
We pick you up at airport Bardufoss and invite you to a welcoming dinner at the Huskyfarm in Innset, where you spend you first night. The next day you get an introduction in the art of mushing; we will check your equipment and prepare the expedition. On the third day we take off on a trail on Lake Altevatn along the border to the national park.
Only at the beginning and the end of the expedition we use the scooter trail on Lake Altevatn. As soon as we reach the end of the lake we are riding our sleds through untouched snow.
In the national park pure and unspoiled nature awaits us. Tracks of fox, moose, lynx, wolverine and wolf might be discovered.
The vast and secluded nature and the unpredictable weather and snow conditions above and below the tree line demand good physical shape of the participants and a flexible course of the expedition.
Cabins are accessible within daily distances. Nights in the tent are necessary when deep snow or bad weather hinder our progress.
Each participant rides his/her own sled and is responsible for his/her own dog team. The sled and the equipment has to be secured, the dogs have to be attended. The close teamwork of men and huskies is what makes such a demanding tour into pure nature to a very special experience.
