Follow us on a northern lights tour! After the darkness has closed around us we steer the dog team straight into the snow-covered forests, and hopefully we will see the beautiful northern lights dancing over the sky.
Join us and our huskies for an evening tour with dog sled in the forests of Jokkmokk. We travel over ice-covered lakes, frozen mires and through snow-covered forests. If the circumstances are the right, we will also be able to see the northern lights flicker over the sky.
You sit as passengers on the dog sled with an experienced guide steering the dog team. We will talk about the landscape we travel through and the wild animals that lives here. We who guide you have powerful headlights, so you will have good sight even if it’s dark.
During the tour we stop and make a fire where we barbeque pork, sausage and boil coffee. At the break you also get the chance to greet and socialize with our friendly huskies.
Note: The northern lights are a natural light phenomena and there is no guarantee that you will see it during the tour. This is the same tour as “With dog sled in the woodlands” but after the darkness has closed around us.
