Activity description

Explore the Northern Arctic in style on this overnight dog sledding excursion in Swedish Lapland from Kiruna. Welcoming adventurers of all ages on this all-inclusive family experience!

Kiruna is the northernmost city of Sweden, situated in the popular Lapland region. This tour is run and operated from Kauppinen on the outskirts of Kiruna. The area is surrounded by beautiful taiga forests, frozen lakes and rivers. During the winter months, the area is covered in snow creating a white wonderland. Dog sledding is the perfect excursion to discover this northern region!

The overnight experience begins with pick-up from your accommodation within a 20km radius of the base (please specify your location when booking). You will meet your experienced guide and the adorable husky dogs native to the region! Each person can drive their own sled with a team of 4-5 dogs. After a short briefing and driving lesson, you'll set off into the Arctic Taiga! 

Led through the winter wilderness by the expert musher guide, you'll pass by the distinct landscapes of the region, including pine trees, frozen lakes and mountains. You will travel to a rustic winter cabin in the middle of the wilderness. The traditional Swedish cabin sleeps 8-10 people, depending on the combination of single clients or couples sharing, it has 6 single beds and 2 double beds. The cabin also features a small cosy sauna and an eco-toilet.

Once you've arrived, you'll sit down for a delicious three-course meal - followed by a Swedish sauna or stargazing. In the home to the spectacular Northern Lights, the evening in this remote location promises to be magical! The next morning will begin with a hearty breakfast. After harnessing up the dogs for the return journey, you'll glide across the snowy terrain on your way to the activity base where you can have a last cuddle with the dogs before taking the return transport back into town.

This immersive experience with a dog sledding excursion in the wilderness is the perfect way to discover remote Swedish Lapland. Book this overnight cabin stay from Kiruna now!
