We will take you out with a large team of dogs driven by the guide. When the sky is clear and the full moon is shining, driving without a head lamp at night is an unforgettable experience. It is almost impossible to explain how bright a tour under the moonlight can be. We would love to share this magic light with you.
If we are lucky, the sky is filled with northern lights. As we live outside the big tourist areas, far away from light pollution, it is possible to see even weak northern lights. Even if the sky is not clear, it is still a great experience to venture into nature and enjoy the silence when the sled slides over the snow. When we come back to the kennel, we take care of the dogs, give them a massage and cuddle them to thank them for their hard work.
After we have said goodbye to the dogs we invite you to have a warming Swedish fika (coffee, hot chocolate, buns) around our kitchen table or in our kåta, that invites conversation about life in this Arctic environment before we drive you back to your accommodation.
Pick up and transfer in Kiruna or ICEHOTEL. In 40 minutes we drive from Kiruna to our kennel. We drive along the beautiful Kalix river, which is one of the largest river systems in Europe that has not been exploited for hydroelectric purposes. On clear days we can even see the beautiful mountain range hosting Sweden’s tallest mountain, Kebnekaise. The chances to see moose are high as we pass through the moose’s winter grazing land.
We start by saying hello to our dogs in the team. Then we all get ready on the sled, you sit up to 4 persons on a big sled and you must be able to bend your legs. We drive with the dogs on frozen swamps, through mountain forests and over the ice-covered Kalix river.
Why do we think you should choose Husky Home?
In all our bookable activities, not only your experience is at the center but also the wellbeing of the dogs. We constantly develop and have further training to be able to adapt our dogs’ everyday lives in the best way possible.
You find us away from the major tourist areas in a vast and untouched landscape. With our silent and calm dogs you will have the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, when looking around you might see moose, reindeer, grouse and fox or at least the traces they have left behind.
