Itinerary

Day 1

You will start with a flight to Kiruna, Sweden (at your own arrangement and cost). Once there, you will be met by your guide and taken to the kennels and your cosy Lodge accommodation. If you are already in the area we can arrange an alternative pick up point.

After a warming cup of tea or coffee and a brief introduction to your adventure ahead, you will be kitted out with Arctic outer-wear to keep you toasty during your snowy adventure.

Depending on your arrival time you can enjoy an optional wander on snow shoes along a local trail in the afternoon.

Later, you can enjoy the popular Scandinavian tradition of a hot sauna. We’ll supply everything you might need including a towel, spa goodies for washing and light refreshments. If you are brave enough you can take an invigorating break from the sauna and roll in the snow or, if you are lucky, marvel at the Northern Lights above.

In the evening you can enjoy a scrumptious dinner before heading for bed. Overnight, our rustic accommodation is on a twin-share or double basis. Single supplement applies.

Meals included: Dinner

Day 2

After breakfast, it’s time for you to meet the dogs! You will be given expert tuition in handling your own dog team before being given your own sled. Each person drives their own sled with four dogs throughout the tour. The dogs are very strong and are born to run so the start is always exciting as they finally get their wish!

This is your chance to be a Musher and no doubt you’ll enjoy this incredible mode of transport, as the dogs yelp and bark their way across the frozen lakes and through pine forests. Along the trail, we’ll stop for an Arctic picnic lunch before getting back on the sled and heading down the trail once more.

Once we’ve had our fill of dog sledding for the day, we arrive back at the kennels where another cosy stay at our rustic lodge awaits.

Meals included: Breakfast (self-serve), Lunch and Dinner

Day 3

Today may be your last day but the adventure has not come to an end yet! After breakfast you have the option to enjoy the unique experience of the famous ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjarvi. The hotel has a world-wide reputation for being the “coolest” hotel in the world – it is in fact a constant -5 degrees centigrade no matter what the temperature outside! This temperature makes it comfortable to stay in and walk around but cool enough for the hotel’s walls, beds, chairs and bar (complete with ice glasses) to stay frozen. The tour ticket allows you to view the 20 or so individually hand-crafted rooms with ice sculptures as well as the ice Church. Each year the hotel melts and is rebuilt so every room is different to the last and truly unique! With themed rooms such as “Gotham City”, “Polar Bears” and “Aurora”, and the possibility of a drink at the ICEBAR or warm bar, it is an excellent way to spend the morning. We offer free transfers for this tour but the entrance fee is not included (approx. Adult SEK349, Child SEK125) and is purchased at the ICEHOTEL on the day.

Our services end with a transfer back to Kiruna or the airport.

Meals included: Breakfast (self-serve)

Itinerary

Day 1

Under your own arrangement, you will arrive in Kiruna, Sweden. Once there, you will be met by your guide and driven approx. 15 minutes to a Lapland hideaway in the forest. A narrow snow-covered side road leads to an opening in the forest where you will discover a small kennel of 40 sled dogs and kennel owners Gaynor and Milos. A warm welcome awaits as you settle into your cosy accommodation at their guest lodge in the surroundings of this private complex.

After a warming cup of tea or coffee and an introduction to what awaits over the following days, you will be supplied with high quality Arctic outer-wear to keep you toasty during your adventure. Afterwards, you can choose to relax in your room or take a wander in the immediate surroundings. Meanwhile, your hosts will warm the sauna for you to enjoy in the late afternoon before a sumptuous dinner is served in the Lodge.

Overnight, our rustic accommodation is on a twin-share or double basis. Single supplement applies.

Meals included: Dinner

Day 2

After breakfast, you can prepare for today’s adventure: our ‘sit-down’ Forest Escape dog sled tour. Depending on availability, this tour may be taken in the morning or afternoon. During this tour you can get up close and personal with the dogs who are all friendly and love cuddles! The experience begins directly from the kennel yard and heads off down a private forest trail from the back of the property. It is an exciting journey where you can sit on a large sled for 4 guests pulled by 12 strong and enthusiastic dogs and driven by a professional guide. Emerging from the forest, the trail heads down to Kiruna’s famous Torne River (now frozen of course) and eventually leads to a traditional Sami-style tipi tent called a Lavvu. Here, you take a break to warm up and enjoy a cup of steaming coffee made in a traditional way over the fire. After a short break, you head off on the sled again returning to the kennels.

This sit-down tour is a fantastic introduction to dog sledding but if your adventurous spirit yearns for more, you can choose an optional ‘drive-your-own’ tour in the afternoon (extra charge applies). For this experience, you will receive instructions on how to control your own sled pulled by 4 huskies before heading down the trail on your own sled following your guide through the arctic wilderness.

Later, dinner is served before you retreat for the night buzzing with today’s memories.

Meals included: Breakfast (self-serve), lunch and dinner

Day 3

Today’s adventure is human powered! You’ll be fitted out with high quality Fimbulvetr snow shoes (size 37-50) to help you along the forest trails surrounding the lodge. The physical level of this activity can be tailored to the group but the suggested goal is the top of a nearby hill where you benefit from an incredible view of the area, seeing for miles across frozen rivers and pine forests. Along the way, it’s quite possible to see wildlife such as birdlife, reindeer and moose. Your guide will serve a welcome drink whilst you soak up the scenery before you. When you’re ready you can head back to base where lunch awaits.

In the afternoon, you can choose to relax, go for a walk or take an optional snow mobile tour (own machine SEK1650, sharing a machine SEK900 per person) . If you choose the latter, you will be given instructions on how to drive the snowmobile before the surge of engine power fills your body on a thrilling ride through this frozen landscape. This is a guided tour and you will need a full drivers licence to take part.

On your last night in Lapland, be sure to look out for the northern lights dancing in the skies above. The lights can appear on any clear night throughout the winter and because our property is far away from the light pollution of the city, you have an excellent chance of seeing them!

Meals included: Breakfast (self-serve), lunch and dinner

Day 4

It may be your last day in Lapland but the fun is far from over. Your remaining time is spent at the world famous ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjarvi, about 25 minutes drive from the kennels. The hotel has a reputation for being the “coolest” hotel in the world – it is in fact a constant -5 degrees centigrade no matter what the temperature outside! This temperature makes it comfortable to walk around but cool enough for the hotel’s walls, beds and bar (complete with ice glasses) to stay frozen.

The official tour of the hotel is optional but recommended and allows you to view the various individually hand-crafted rooms with ice sculptures. With themed rooms, which in previous years has included “Gotham City”, “Polar Bears” and “Aurora”, it is an excellent way to spend the morning.

Depending on your departure time, you are free to perhaps enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at the ICEHOTEL or a walk to Jukkasjarvi’s quaint church just a few minutes up the road from the hotel.

Meals included: Breakfast (self-serve)

Itinerary

Day 1

Under your own arrangement, you will arrive in Kiruna, Sweden’s Northern-most city situated approx. 250km inside the Arctic Circle. Once there, you will be met by your guide and driven approx. 15 minutes to a Lapland hideaway in the forest. A narrow snow-covered side road leads to an opening in the forest where you will discover a small kennel of 40 sled dogs and kennel owners Gaynor and Milos. A warm welcome awaits as you settle into your cosy accommodation at their guest lodge in the surroundings of this private complex.

After a warming cup of tea or coffee and an introduction to what awaits over the following days, you can choose to relax in your room or take a wander in the immediate surroundings. Meanwhile, your hosts will warm the sauna for you to enjoy in the late afternoon before a sumptuous dinner is served.

After dinner, why not wander outside in the search for the Aurora? The lights can appear on any clear night throughout the winter and because our property is far away from the light pollution of the city, you have an excellent chance of seeing them!

Overnight at our rustic accommodation on a twin-share or double basis.

Meals included: Dinner

Day 2

Today you will begin your introduction to dog sledding. First, you will be supplied with high quality Arctic outer-wear to keep you toasty during your adventure. Fully kitted up, you’ll join a professional guide who will show you the basics of dog sledding. You will be shown your sled, how to control it, and how to harness your own team of dogs. This dog team will be yours for the duration of your visit which will give you plenty of time to bond with these hardy yet soft-natured animals.

Following a light lunch, the excitement builds as you prepare for an acclimatization tour. Starting directly from the kennels, a private forest trail takes you beyond the trees to open spaces and across frozen lakes. The start can be noisey as the dogs bark in preparation for the off but once on the move the raucous gives way to silence and you can settle in to driving your own sled through this incredible landscape.

Once back at the kennels, the dogs return to their yards and you can enjoy a warming dinner at the lodge before heading for bed ready for more adventure tomorrow.

Meals included: Breakfast (self-serve), lunch and dinner

Day 3

After a hearty breakfast, today you will continue your dog sledding adventure. Already feeling more confident on the sled, your guide will whisk you off into the forest once more. Ahead of you is kilometres of snow covered trails criss-crossing a landscape that defines Lapland. Starting in the lowlands you’ll have the destination of the mountains ahead of you as you make your way down frozen rivers. On the way, you’ll stop for an arctic picnic lunch.

The length of the trail will depend on the conditions but typically you will cover between 45 and 60km each day. Tonight’s destination is a suitable camping spot where you’ll enjoy a night under the stars.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Please note, meals can include ‘drytech’

Day 4

Breaking camp and heading off down the trail you’ll start gaining some height and enter the ‘tundra’ area above the tree line. The scenery is spectacular and has been likened to Antarctica with its rolling white hills barren of tree life.

Lunch is taken on the trail and your destination is a remote cabin very close to the Norwegian border. The cabin is small but very welcome after a night camping. Clothes can be dried and bodies can be warmed before retiring to bed for a good nights sleep.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Please note, meals can include ‘drytech’

Day 5

At this time of year, the spring, the days are long and warm and it’s usually a very enjoyable time to be outdoors. However, storms are also fairly common in the mountains so we build in a ‘weather’ day to help absorb any challenges along the way.

Under normal circumstances this means you have a free day in the mountains. You can choose to go out on the trail with the dogs or try your hand at ice fishing in the frozen lake next to the cabin. You can also ‘walk’ to Norway as the Norwegian border is reached half way across the lake. There is a sauna in an adjacent cabin where you can freshen up before dinner.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 6

Today is your last day on the sled as you make your way down the mountain and back through villages to the large icy expanse of the Tornetrask. This is a large river section surrounded by picturesque mountains and is an uplifting end to the tour.

We meet a waiting vehicle on the shores of the Tornetrask and once all the dogs and sleds are loaded, you’ll return to the kennels. Once back at base, you can say farewell to the dogs before melting all your aches away in the sauna whilst sharing fond memories from the past week.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 7

It may be your last day in Lapland but the fun is far from over. If your departure time allows, you can visit the world famous ICEHOTEL 365 in Jukkasjarvi, about 25 minutes drive from the kennels. This part of the hotel (open 365 days of the year, hence its name) is a recent addition to the traditional ICEHOTEL that melted away each spring. It contains individually crafted ice rooms and enjoys a reputation for being the “coolest” hotel in the world – it is in fact a constant -5 degrees centigrade! This temperature makes it comfortable to walk around but cool enough for the hotel’s walls, beds and bar (complete with ice glasses) to stay frozen.

The official tour of the hotel is optional but recommended and is an excellent way to spend the morning. Tour entrance ticket not included (Adult SEK349, Child SEK125), ticket purchased at the hotel on the day.

Meals included: Breakfast (self-serve)
