Knowledge of snow is important on a winter mountain holiday. It can be important if you get into a snowstorm in the mountains. But above all it is exciting and fun to dig and build in the snow! During three days, you literally live in the snow in Saltoluokta mountains, not far from the boarder from World Heritage Laponia. Together with STF (Mountain lodge) we arranged our mountain igloo weekend. We learn a lot about the material snow, travel with skies and stay one night in our own built igloo! Program: Day 1: Arrival Check-in At the mountain lodge.
Lunch in the restaurant of Saltoloukta. Afternoon: Shorter” try out” ski tour in Saltoluokta. Three-course dinner in the restaurant. The evening ends with a slide show, with pictures from the Saltoluokta area and information on upcoming days.
Day 2 Igloo day : Ski tour up the “hill” or just nearby (so you don´t have to be a good skier). With the help of igloo saw and knife, we build our igloos. The evening ends with dinner under an open starlight, hopefully with Northern light as an extra “dessert”. We overnight in igloo on reindeer skins, in an extra warm sleeping bag.
Day 3: After a light breakfast we ski back to the mountain station (lodge). Brunch and sauna at the mountain lodge. Afternoon: A small Alpine tour on skis or snowshoes or just relax. Skotertransfer back to Kebnats. Or take the chance to stay on more night at the Mountain Station.
