My combo deals have ice fishing (daytime or night time), 2 hour snowmobile adventure, and 30 minutes to 2 hour dog sledding adventure. You get to choose what day and times for each activity--spread the activities out over a whole week or fill a whole day--your choice. Combos can only be booked through the website

We have seen some amazing auroras this year--we just need the weather to cooperate so we can see the magical aurora dance overhead. Thank you for the review.
