We will pick you up for the days experience at 09:00 in Kiruna C and take you to our base in Laxforsen, located just outside Kiruna not far from Jukkasjärvi.
You run your own sled pulled by 3-4 dogs. You can also choose to share sled with another guest pulled by 4-6 dogs. One of you is sitting on the sled and the other guest is running the sled, you switch position during the tour.
We provide warm clothing (shoes, overalls, warm cap and gloves). When you are changed, we have a briefing on how to handle the sled and the dogs so that you feel safe taking care of your dog sled.
When we and the dogs are ready and the start signal for the tour goes, the dogs will stop barking and all you will hear is the sound of the sled and the breathing from the dogs. With our Huskies we will guide you on a trip in the amazing Lapland in Jukkasjärvi and Torne River’s surroundings through forest sections often covered in shining snow and on frozen lakes and rivers.
The tour takes a total around 4,5-5,5 hours (inkl transfer). We take a break out in the shining snow or by a Lavu depending on the weather condition and gather around an open fire where you have a hot soup and sandwich while you enjoying the beautiful surroundings before we are setting off with our eager Huskies.
