Activity description

Explore the wilderness of Swedish Lapland while driving your own team of Alaskan huskies on this 4.5-hour excursion from Kiruna! This tour includes a hotel transfer and lunch. Welcoming adventurers ages 5 and up! 

Located in Northern Sweden, Kiruna is situated in Swedish Lapland. Renowned for its Arctic wilderness, it is a popular destination for outdoor adventure lovers and nature enthusiasts. Dog sledding might just be the perfect way to experience Kiruna's magical winter wonderland! 

Your adventure begins at your hotel in Kiruna, where you will board the scenic transfer to the dog sledding base. Upon your arrival, you and your group (a maximum of 12 participants) will be greeted by your experienced guide and musher (dog sled driver). Once you've put on your winter gear, including thermal overalls, boots, a hat, and gloves, you'll receive a safety briefing and an introduction to dog sledding.

Now, for the fun part, you'll meet your team of adorable and energetic Alaskan huskies! In the company of your guide, you'll set out into the snowy landscapes of Swedish Lapland and feel an adrenaline rush like none other as the huskies run at high speeds. Midway through the 27 km (16.7 miles) tour, you'll stop at a private wilderness cabin for a delicious lunch. Warm up and enjoy a starter and main course, followed by coffee/tea and cake. Refreshed, you'll continue back to the base. Don't forget your camera, there will be plenty of amazing photo opportunities along the way! After saying goodbye to your four-legged friends, you'll be taken back to your accommodations in Kiruna with lifelong memories and a newfound love for dog sledding! 

Take the plunge and experience the thrill of dog sledding for yourself. Book your next adventure in Kiruna today!
