Activity description

Embark on a dog sledding northern lights hunt through the old pine forests and frozen lakes of the Swedish Lapland, complemented by local favors! Ideal for families, and groups of friends!

This activity will see you straight from your accommodation to the magical winter wonderland of Oinakka by night! Pick-up is provided from Kiruna, and you can also choose to met your guide directly at their base in Oinakka, just outside of Kiruna, and near the world's original Icehotel.

Once there, you will meet your new furry friends, and get ready to set off into the snow. The sled is controlled by an experienced musher, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride! The wooden sled is equipped with reindeer fur to keep you nice and warm as you glide through the white old pine tree forests, past frozen lakes and swamps.

Your guide will follow the direction towards the most optimal spots to see the Northern Lights. Sit back, relax and marvel at the spectacular colors of the auroras lighting up the night sky surrounded by the silence of the polar night! 

Along the route, you will make a stop to rest the dogs and enjoy a traditional Swedish Fika by the roaring fire. Warm your fingers around a hot cup of coffee or tea, and take a bite from a Swedish cookie as your guide shares stories about the aurora borealis and the local Sami culture.

With luck, the lights will come out to dance above you, the cherry on top of an already spectacular view of the starry Polar sky! Once you're back at the kennel, it is time to cuddle one last time your four-legged friends, and leave Kiruna with lifelong memories! 

For an unforgettable adventure in Kiruna, look no further! Book your dog sledding northern lights hunt and prepare to experience the magical phenomenon of the northern lights in a unique and authentic way - pulled by a team of Alaskan huskies!

Es lief alles Reibungslos ab. Alle Personen waren super freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Tour durch den Wald und die offenen Flächen sprachen für sich. Es gibt absolut nichts zu bemängeln.

Amazing the guide was really open and answered all the questions we asked, he told us about his love for dogs and made sure we all saw the northern lights when it was hard to see, afterwards we got dropped of at a mountain so we could look further for the northern lights , because we asked dor that, even tho it would be easier to just drop us off at the hostel. Everyone had a great energy and the dogs where super sweet.

The dogsledding took place a little outside of Kiruna, we booked the evening session and we were given warm clothing for the tour. The experience felt very personal and intense, our guide was extremely friendly and explained us all about sled dogs during the tour. We stopped half way for the classic Swedish “Fika”. Even though we couldn’t see the aurora the experience was very unique and enjoyable. We loved the dogs and I would strong recommend this company and activity if you are in Kiruna!

We can only recommend this experience! Aron and his business are a local treasure and part of the community that feels good to support. You learn so much about the sport of dog sledding because the entire team is so passionate. We appreciated their willingness share about their hobby and learn along the way. You get to experience and feel the beautiful arctic. A pick up from your accommodation and endless dog cuddles are also included!

Auch wenn wir die Nordlichter nicht gesehen haben, war es tolles Erlebnis mit den Schlittenhunden.

Esperienza bellissima fatta con famiglia e amici al seguito, siamo stati posizionati sulla slitta in 4 con la nostra guida che guidava 15 cani, una ragazza simpaticissima molto disponibile a raccontarci tutti i segreti dello sleddog. Purtroppo l'attività ci è stata cancellata a causa delle temperature estreme (-40) ma ci hanno contattato per rimborso o per data alternativa e fortunatamente siamo riusciti a trovare un accordo per qualche giorno dopo

Il n’y a pas de chasse d’aurores boréales. On a un lieu de rdv pour le fika dans un tipis. C’est une super expérience avec les chiens mais on ne parle pas du tout des aurores boréales. C’est un plus si on en voit

Super punctual and service-minded staff, not to mention their profound knowledge of their profession.

Seeing the energy of the dogs was amazing. It felt a little short, but that's because the snow conditions were too good.
