“We crossed frozen lakes the colour of lemon curd and snows that turned lilac, then magenta. Your heart throbs at the violence of the landscape; sometimes you seem to hear music in its wild harmony.


25 years ago, working in the sweltering heat of Southern Tanzania, Alex read Barry Lopez’s inspirational book, Arctic Dreams.

Ever since, he has harboured an obsession with this intensely remote wilderness and the species that live there. Recently, his obsession bore fruit as we branched out to offer trips 80 degrees north. We have identified some of the planet’s most remarkable wildlife and forged some extraordinary additions to the Natural High stable.

Talk To Our Experts


The intense wilderness of Arctic Lapland is the setting for one of our most unusual but rewarding family experiences. You have the chance to drive your own team of huskies in a dog-sledding safari over several days.

Travelling with a highly experienced guide, the journey through a breathtaking Arctic scenery is at a gentle pace with only the hiss of the sled’s runners and the panting of the dogs to break the silence. This is a truly magical way to spend together a family.

Arctic Safari (FAQs) Need to Know

When is the best time to go to the Arctic on safari?

Much depends on where you would like to visit in the Arctic and what you would like to experience during your visit. If you are thinking about Svalbard, we recommend the summer months when the weather is warmest and you can head out to sea along the west coast on our private expedition vessel. 

If you would prefer an overland experience, the spring is a great time to visit. During this time we travel overland into the beautiful unspoiled wilderness of eastern Svalbard, crossing frozen mountain trails, fjords and onto the firm sea-ice of the Barents Sea using heated expedition tents and travelling with an expedition cook. 

Arctic Sweden is beautiful from December to April, when the snow is deep and the skies are blue. You have a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights at this time too, which is truly a sight to behold.

Is an Arctic expedition suitable for children?

Our dog-sledding expeditions are perfect for families. You know your family and we will be able to tailor your experience so everyone loves their time in the Arctic wilderness. Travelling with your own team of huskies is a wonderful experience and the older kids will be able to drive their own sleds across the pristine landscapes.
