A magical daytime adventure through the forest and across a frozen river, sitting on a sled pulled by 12 Alaskan Huskies.

Imagine gliding through the sparkling wintery landscape of Lapland by dog sled; something you will have dreamed of as a child. The glitter of snowflakes is all around and the cold air is filled with the warm breath of the dogs, panting as they run, winding their way along an exciting, yet secluded, forest trail. Through the trees you get your first glimpse of our lavvu, a traditional Sami style tipi retreat, where you will warm yourself once more around a roaring fire and with a steaming mug of hot chocolate or coffee in your hands. The scenery that surrounds you is stunning and you may even see reindeer or moose on your adventure. This is the arctic winter at its best and we pride ourselves in offering an exceptional and high quality experience for you and your family.

Away from the crowds, yet just a short distance from Kiruna centre, our kennel is also our home; a rustic home, hand-crafted and built with the environment in mind. It provides an escape from the bustle of busy lives and for a short time will transport you to the wintery wonderland of fairytales. Our dogs love it too and we are sure you’ll notice how happy and excited they are to meet you. They love cuddles and there will be plenty of time for you to get to know them and some of our young puppies.

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.

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.

Minimum 2 people. Individual bookings accepted. In the event that only one person is booked on the tour, we reserve the right to cancel the tour and issue a full refund.

Refunds & changes: Unfortunately, we cannot offer a refund if you decide to cancel within 48 hours (for any reason, including weather or unforeseen changing travel plans).

If in exceptional circumstances we have to cancel your tour, we will refund you 100% of the cost with no administration deductions.
