As the sun is descending, you will be driven along with three other adventurers on our big sled, having only to focus on enjoying the trip! Depending on the time of the season and the weather, you will experience the mesmerising colours of Lapland's sunsets and potentially Auroras, it being sporadic, though (higher chances on the evening tour!).
Experience the often amazing sunsets Lapland has to offer at the beginning of your tour. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights towards the end of the afternoon. An experience made quintessential when coupled with a powerful, cuddly and beautiful team of Alaskan Huskies. An evening never to be forgotten.
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.
Your guide will drive you on a big sled pulled by 12-14 mighty Alaskan & Siberian huskies. You will sit back and enjoy the thrilling ride as we glide into the sparkling snow under the Arctic Moon.
On this remarkable Sled Dog Tour with us, you will travel through the glistening snow-covered forests across frozen lakes and enjoy a taste of the winter solitude in the polar evening. We will briefly stop to allow you to take in the fantastic scenery.
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 a warm beverage 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.
