Fjellborg's Lodge

  • Poikkijärvi
  • Distance: 4.85 miles

Roadblock.png Roadblock: Once teams made their way to this wilderness lodge, they found a Roadblock. Who's feeling kind of mushy? The chosen team member would have to choose a team of sled dogs and take them on a summer training exercise. They would guide the dogs around a marked course as they pulled a wheeled sled. They would have to collect five flags along the way, which they would trade for fur pelts at the end of the course. When they returned to the beginning, they could exchange the fur for their next clue.

Beds: Teams would have to build a traditional Sami dwelling known as a goahti. Once it was properly built, they would furnish it with furs and build a fire. If everything was perfect, they would get their next clue.
