Our most popular short dog sled tour! Experience the beautiful nature as a passenger on a dogsled behind a team of strong huskies and enjoy the talks around the crackling fire.

Experience the feeling of swishing along on a dog sled behind a bunch of powerful huskies and get the chance to learn about the nature, huskies and the life in Swedish Lapland.

We travel over ice-covered lakes, frozen mires and through snow-covered forests, and we tell you about the landscape we travel through.
What is hiding in the deep forests around Jokkmokk? Many are the wild animals that move here. We show you the winding tracks across the white snow and with dog sled we travel relatively quiet so sometimes we are lucky enough to see any of the animals.

You sit as a passenger on the dog sled with an experienced guide steering the dog team. During the tour we stop to barbecue pork, sausages and boil coffee over and open fire. Here you get the chance to greet and hang out with our social, kind and loving huskies and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

We warmly recommend this dog sled tour to anyone who wants an easier nature and dog sledding experience.

Savor this fantastic Lapland experience!
Any visit to Jokkmokk during winter is incomplete without a trip over the snow with Matti and Stina’s incredible working huskies! We had booked a 3-hour morning trip with them and it turned out to be our best Swedish Lapland experience. We were joined in by two very passionate and cheerful companions and four of us, after being given suitably warm and cozy outer gear by Stina, were taken to the white forest wilderness by Matti and his huskies. We rode on the sled through the frozen lake Skabram. It was very good to be with very warm and welcoming dogs and they took us to a tent in the middle of the forest. There we had a wonderful little barbecue and coffee. It was a very pleasant experience. Both Matti and Stina are very warm and patient hosts and communicating with them was never a problem. I highly recommend this activity to anyone who wants to have an authentic Lapland experience. / Mithuraaj
