The evening Aurora Hunt by dogsled is the perfect way to increase your chances of spotting the Northern Lights.
Immerse yourself in the dark wintry nights of Lapland and escape the city lights by sitting on a big sled pulled by a team of excitable yet friendly Alaskan Huskies. The trail winds its way through pine and birch forest down to the famous Torne River where you can see the night sky stretching far infront of you. At our half way point we stop at a traditional Sami-style tipi, lavvu, for a warming drink and a popular Swedish snack. Here you can choose to take comfort and warmth from the open fire or, if luck is on your side, you can marvel at the display of Aurora outside.

This is a ‘sitting’ experience with up to four people sitting on a large sled driven by an experienced guide. Occasionally it may be possible (or necessary) for five people to sit on one sled but this is only in exceptional circumstances.
The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) are a natural phenomenon and therefore not guaranteed.
We will provide you with insulated outerwear during your experience and we stock adult sizes ranging from ‘extra small’ to ‘extra, extra large’. Boots are stocked in adult sizes ranging from 36 (EU) to 46 (EU). If you think you may require a size outside of this range, please contact us so we can make the appropriate arrangements. Small children are provided with insulated ‘jumpsuits’ often worn over their own sweaters or coat. Children’s boots are stocked in most sizes.
Minimum age for children is 4 years. The child’s rate is applied to anyone under the age of 12. Please respect that proof of age may be required.
If the temperature drops below minus 30 degrees C, it may be necessary to shorten the trip for your comfort.
Our guides usually speak English as a recognised international language but we have guides that also speak Slovak/Czech, Dutch, French, Spanish and some Swedish.
Pick-up and drop-off is at any centrally located hotel in Kiruna city or the central Folketshus. Please be ready 10 minutes in advance of the departure time stated; in consideration of our other guests, we cannot wait for late arrivals.
