Activity description

Take a ride on the wild side and experience the thrill of Arctic dog sledding in Abisko, Sweden! 

Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, the small village of Abisko is located in the Arctic Circle and has an incredible, winter backdrop of nature at its finest. Dog sledding in Abisko is a must-do adventure as you traverse through the remote wilderness, taking in the scenery that surrounds you and your pack of sled dogs. 

As your guide drives the sled, you will be able to enjoy the experience and the scenery around you. While on the dog sled, feel free to take photos and videos. As it can be quite chilly in the Arctic, you’ll get a chance to have a small break during the tour to warm up and pet the dogs.  

Back at the camp after a 2-hour ride, you will be able to help the guide in the dog yard to unharness the dogs and walk them back to their homes. You’ll be sure to make some unforgettable memories and some new canine friends!

We had experienced snow mobiling in Tromso prior to this dog sledding so we more ir less have an idea of how it would be. It was a nice feeling seeing how the dogs enjoy running and love it when we pet them

J’ai réservé cette activité pour mon fils et ses 3 amis pour son anniversaire. Ils ont adoré et passé un moment inoubliable. Je n’ai malheureusement pas tous les détails mais je sais qu’à la fin ils étaient heureux !!!

Exciting being pulled by the dogs and being able to meet the dogs before and after. Early in the season so explained less snow ride very bumpy in places, which did cause discomfort. Depending on where you sit on sled or height of person in front limits forward view.

  • 5 / 5

A wonderful, exhilarating experience, dogs were friendly, used to being petted by random strangers and had a great bond with their handlers. Guides were also friendly and clearly loved their dogs. It wasn't a particularly comfortable trip, up to 4 people sitting astride a wooden sled one behind another, but don't let that put you off, it felt very authentic rather than a sanitised tourist activity and was totally worth it.

An unbelievable experience, the team is very friendly and passionate, the dogs seem to be well treated, the landscape is breathtaking, I recommend it!

  • 5 / 5

The opportunity for this dogsledding adventure surpasses all the previous dogsledding I have done in the past. Past experiences lasted only a short duration and distance where this adventure went for about 2 hours and several kilometers. These dogs were enthusiastic and really gave it a showing that they loved to run, and run they did through some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. Of particular note was the tall hill that gave great views over Abisko, and the surrounding parkland.

Il s’agit d’un petit hôtel dans le village d’Abisko qui possède des chiens (4 x 12 chiens il me semble). L’équipe est jeune et expérimentée, tres sympa, prête à répondre à toutes les questions. Les chiens sont en bonne santé et toujours félicités/récompensés de façon bienveillante. Je recommande vivement cette activité !

Took the 2pm slot. It was very nice as we caught the last rays of sunlight and sled through the dark snowscape. The guide was very nice and they let us play with the dogs midway through! Very nice experience.

We took the 2pm slot. It was amazing as we went thru the woods in the dark at times at high speed with the blizzard snowstorm. A breathtaking experience.

Really amazing dogs, very strong! Just wished they have a nicer home to stay in and hopefully have some fun by themselves in the summer! Otherwise, they are well taken care of, they each have names which is nice. The guides have been really great too!
