Midnight Sun summit ascent with well trained Alaskan husky
Peskanasen is a small summit near Northern Lights Husky. Those who make it to the top are rewarded with a fantastic view of the Alta Fjord, downtown Alta and two river valleys. In the Midnight Sun, it is a truly wonderful sight.
The trip starts from the kennel at Northern Lights Husky. You will meet around 40 well trained Alaskan huskies and some curious puppies. We greet the dogs before we select the ones to join us tonight. The dogs are fitted with harnesses and pack saddles. We pack everything we need to prepare dinner on an open fire.
The hike starts in flat terrain, but the ascent starts after around 2 km. It is steep at times, but we take short breaks and we have many stories about Alta and the dogs to share with you en route. The dogs can also help to pull you up a bit. Before we reach the summit, we prepare a fire and dinner.
Duration: approx. 3 ½ hours
Groups of more than four guests may contact us to arrange a tour at a different time and/or different day.
