Activity description

Discover the incredible natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights on this fun-filled dog sledding safari from Kiruna. Experience the thrill of traversing the remote landscapes of Swedish Lapland while being pulled by a team of energetic dogs! 

Situated in the Arctic Circle, Kiruna is one of the northernmost towns in Sweden and has been inhabited for over 6,000 years. Known for its stunning wilderness, it is one of Swedish Lapland's most sought-after destinations for nature lovers and outdoor adventure enthusiasts. In addition, Kiruna's surrounding landscapes are perfect to take in the majesty of the Northern Lights. 

Your adventure begins after being picked up at your accommodations in Kiruna (please specify when booking). You and your group (a maximum of 12 participants) will be greeted by your experienced guide and given thermal clothing for the tour. Once you've received a safety briefing and met the adorable dogs, you'll set off into the evening on a sleigh driven by your professional guide and their dog team. This 2-3-hour journey also includes a campfire sandwich snacks with warm beverages. Around the fire, your guide will share fascinating stories about the Sami people and their culture as well as Kiruna's history. Sit, back, relax, and enjoy the incredible sights of Swedish Lapland, and if luck is on your side, the vivid colours of the Aurora Borealis!
