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 15 minutes drive 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.

Daily departures from the beginning of December to the beginning of April, subject to availability.

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 evening Aurora Hunt by dogsled is the perfect way to increase your chances of spotting the Northern Lights whilst enjoying a thrilling dog sled ride.

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 homemade cake. 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.

A combination of the two most popular past times of the locals; an evening dog sled ride and private sauna (min 2 persons).

The Sauna Sizzler starts with a short, 15-minute transfer from town to our kennels and as you turn towards your destination you can marvel at the Lapland landscape ahead of you. Your excitement is sure to build as your eyes spot the dog team for the first time. They will be raring to take you on a magical, twisty trail through the forest and you can sit back and relax as light gives way to the dark and the night sky hopefully reveals the northern lights ahead. After 30-45 minutes, you will return to the kennels with anticipation of a warming sauna that will await your arrival.

This is a private sauna experience for your group of 2-8 people, so you can feel your most relaxed as the heat soothes all of your troubles and stresses away. The cold outside only enhances the experience and every so often we’re sure you’ll be brave enough to pop your head outside and even roll around in the snow which can be most invigorating!

Inside the sauna is a wash and changing area. We provide everything you might need including towels, a spa basket full of quality wash scrubs and gels and cool refreshments.

The tour ends with a return transfer to your hotel in Kiruna town.
