ARCTIC AFTERNOON ECO EXPERIENCE
driving the sled (2 people share a sled)
max 8 people per tour, contact us for larger group requests
14:00 - 17:30
from kr 990.00 - kr 1,650.00
Just like the polar sunrise eco experience, you will be able to drive the sled while watching the sun depart and make space for the magic of the arctic night, often (but never guaranteed) accompanied by astonishing aurora borealis spanning across the whole sky. Halfway through the tour, we will stop to switch drivers, as well as shoot a few memory pictures! Bear in mind, that you will be traveling through the arctic forest full of sleeping forest creatures, which however should usually get sufficiently spooked by the dogs and the noise to not cross our path...
Experience the remarkable crystallized pastel colors of Lapland, amazing, breathtaking, and vibrant. An experience made quintessential when coupled with a fantastically strong, cuddly, and beautiful team of Alaskan Huskies. A morning never to be forgotten! Perhaps if you are lucky you will be able to see a Moose or some Reindeer on your tour.
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.
During the trip, you are fully responsible for looking after your new husky friends and in return, they will give you an amazing experience and display of raw k9 husky power! We will be on hand to help if you get into a tricky situation, so don't worry about a thing, just enjoy.
We will take you through shiny silken snowfields, across expansive outstretched frozen swamps, rivers, lakes, and into ethereal snow-covered forests. We will stop on a few occasions to let you change drivers and take some photographs.
All of our guides are well versed at capturing a nice picture and they will wherever possible try to take a few excellent images, which you can have free of charge to remember your dog sledding 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 sled 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, and sometimes it's just not possible, 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 will be able to warm up in our fire hut and enjoy some tea and snacks. If we have time left before departure, you are free to take more pictures of the dogs and play around with them.

PICKUP & DROP-OFF LOCATIONS
For any date before the 15th of November and after the 1st of April, whether we can do a tour depends on the weather conditions. If the conditions will not be sufficient we will offer you a similar experience with the huskies, just on an ATV, or refund you the money minus a small non-refundable booking system fee.
We do not pick up from Kurravaara unless it is for 7 or more people. You have the option to either drive to the kennel yourself or to Kiruna where we will pick you up, however due to the road conditions we recommend you to be picked up in town by us.

The minimum age is 6 years due to the extreme climate. We may in exceptional circumstances allow younger children but please contact us directly.
We have no upper age limit but we do operate in extreme conditions sometimes. Please advise us if you have concerns regarding the ages of the people in your group.
Please also note that whilst you do not need to be an Olympic sprinter, sometimes, depending on the snow conditions, you may have to help the dog team a little, which is normal in our sport.
Please be aware that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon. Whilst we see them regularly we cannot guarantee you will see them or control the weather. The main event here is dog sledding and regardless of the weather, assuming it is safe to drive we will run the tour. You cannot cancel for reasons regarding the weather.

It is very IMPORTANT you read and understand our terms, conditions, and cancellation policy. Please contact us should you have any queries.
Our tours are limited to a maximum guest number based on logistics, sustainability, and comfort (for the guests AND the dogs). We are, however, able to cater to larger groups/events if necessary. Please contact us with your query, and we will be happy to get back to you with what is doable!
WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY & PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED GUESTS
Do let us know in advance if you have any health issues as we may still be able to accommodate you. We can and will take physically challenged people if it is possible. So, please get in touch.
We will be happy to try and arrange a safe and enjoyable activity for you within the scope of what is safe, possible, and doable.
The ground at the kennel is made from gravel, small stones, and earth, thus potentially tricky for wheelchairs. In winter, there is a thick layer of compressed snow, however, we might be able to use a small sled as means of transportation within the kennel.
INCLUSIVITY AND RULES
We welcome guests from all races, religions, cultures, beliefs, and sexualities (lgbtq+ and up) and don't tolerate discrimination or disrespectful behavior due to any of the above from anyone towards anyone.
On a special note, we have to point out that hostile or disrespectful behavior towards our female guides due to guests' religious or cultural beliefs will end in the termination of the tour with no refund; equally so for intentionally unruly and dangerous behavior that puts guests and dogs at risk.
