To see the Northern Lights whilst on a Sled Dog Tour in Lapland is nothing short of a remarkable and unforgettable experience. While we cannot guarantee them, we see them often, so you have a good chance. Sledge Dog Tours in the evening are an exceptional experience, trusting your powerful husky companions to pull you through the snow-shrouded dark forests.
Our Sled Dog Kennel is approx 17km outside the main tourist centre of Kiruna. We will collect you from your hotel and bring you to our Husky Kennel, only a few kilometres from the world-famous Ice Hotel and Torn River. Our Husky trails are outside the main tourist areas, so it is rare we should see anyone else except the occasional Reindeer. First, we will ensure you are dressed warmly enough for the cold weather.
Our guides will show you around the kennel and explain a little about our huskies. We like to let everyone get involved if they want, and that helps you get to know your super friendly Husky team before we head out into the frozen Lappish wilderness in search of the elusive Aurora Borealis.
You can also help prepare your team of Husky Sled Dogs, and soon we will glide into the sparkling snow under the Arctic Moon.
During your Dog Sledding tour, we will take you on a big four-people sledge that you will share with three other adventurers. We travel through shiny silken snowfields across expansive outstretched frozen swamps, rivers, lakes, and lakes into ethereal snow-covered forests. We will stop on a few occasions to let you take some photographs.
All of our guides have experience capturing nice pictures, and they will try to take a few excellent images, which you can have free of charge to remember your dog sledging adventure in Lapland. Sometimes we will make short video clips and upload them when we have time. Either way, you will receive some memorable snaps of your time with the husky sledge dogs. However, please note that dog sledding, weather and tour experiences can be somewhat unpredictable at times, and it’s sometimes not possible to catch the pictures we would like to, but we try!
When we arrive back at our husky camp, you can thank your husky team by giving them a tasty chunk of raw meat, which they love. You can warm up in our fire hut and enjoy warm beverages and snacks! If we have time left before departure, you are free to take more pictures of the dogs and play around with them.
