The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: An eight-day mush led by renowned dogsled racer Sven Engholm from the high Arctic village of Karasjok out across the Finnmark Plateau and back through low birch trees and tundra. Nights are spent in mountain lodges.
When to go: December to March
Travel advisory: If you suffer from seasonal affective disorder, don't do this trip in December — it's perpetually dark then. Even in early February the sun doesn't rise until 10 a.m. and sets at 2:30 p.m.
