The food is so good that you'll want the same dish next
day too! Award winning actually,
beating some of Sweden's best chefs to it! Cantrell
soup with a hint of chilly... anyone.
Kenneth (The pathfinder) and Catte (The Michelin star)
are founders of Silent Way and who drives the core
values behind the Silent Way, which landed them
a Grand Eco-tourism Award.
The tours are packed with ethnic backgrounds from all
over the world, so bring along an open mind. Experiencing
the people, their culture and share your own. Meet

The dogs are my lifeline! They love their job! You become
friends the instant you meet. Its all part of the family.
Not many have time to train and keep 50 dogs in this
way, so take note how important this point really is.
They are incredible friendly, like a house dog, yet
sparks incredible amounts of energy to pull. Talking
about being balanced yet enthusiastic. Meet

OK, so there is a lot of things to help out with...
feed the dogs, dry the cloths, fetch water, etc, but
what would the trip be without getting hands on the
details. The freedom in this kind of manual labor in
the wild is a welcoming change from the city life. The
comfort level is nevertheless higher than what I expected,
with a sense of being taken care of all the time. Testimonials
Trust the guide, and life is good. Its special feeling
to sit in minus 32 degree and feel comfortable and warm,
quite unexpected indeed. New technologies and advancement
in arctic survival
gear plays a big role. The sledges
carries all the load and surprisingly a lot too, thus,
part of the comfort throughout the trip.
Oh, and they have incredible good and free WiFi Internet
connection at base camp / Umnes. So one can check in
on one's business and call home over skype, etc. I really
valued this point.
Large comfortable lodge
for every stop, in the middle of no where? Yes. Apparently
the Swedish state has pitched in traditional lodges
way up and across the mountains.
Sweden is one of the riches and pro-active countries
in the world. They take real good care of their environments
and people, a true inspiration for the rest. The people
and their culture. Swedes are very conscious and heart
filled with peace... just like its nature. To
The tour programs
When I come back next time I will bring a group of friends
and do a custom
tour. The balanced time in the lodges, meal times, and
time on the sledge is great... that's the tour program.
Fulfilling time for contemplation... with amble opportunities
being both totally still and letting go, merging with
nature, as well as opening up to new possibilities.
9. The Lights
Sun, northern light and rainbow colors in the snow...
ahh the strong Arctic light. Well, they just don't exist
in this way elsewhere... nature at its best. Lapland
is the Alaska of Europe and it is said the northern
light here is the best there is anywhere.
How deep down the rabbit hole do you want to go? The
satisfying moment of making intuitive decisions to take
a trip like this. Letting the experience arise as it
happens... across the mountains and deep forests...
gradually identifying with the awesome nature itself...
as after all... we are that too.
