We went for a short mother-daughter adventure vacation and it was a great experience! My daughter is a strong 13-year-old and we were a good team. We enjoyed the many physical challenges which began from the minute we stepped off the plane in the Arctic Circle -- at the Kiruna Airport! Driving a reindeer sled, eating reindeer meat cooked over an open fire in a Sami teepee, sleeping in the -5C ice room, dog-sledding for 17K (1 1/2 hours!) through the forest at night in very sub-zero temps, staying in a camp in the woods, sauna complete with jumps into a snowbank, riding on Icelandic horses, nightly searching for Northern Lights, just taking walks in the beautiful landscape... It was exhausting but so much fun!
Thank goodness for the Arctic gear (jumpsuit, boots, mittens) everyone is provided by the IceHotel plus the nice IceHotel souvenir fleece hats we bought at their lovely gift shop. Bring the warmest gear you can find from home; long underwear is a must; and lots of the warmest socks available!
