When most tourists have left the mountains, we start out on the final Husky Adventure for the season. In the dog sleds we bring everything we need to make this a nice experience and go straight out on the mountains.
Follow on this husky adventure and meet the light and spring in the Swedish mountains. The nights are bright, the migratory birds arrive and the reindeer herds have returned after their long migration from the forests to their calving land in the mountains. Among the locals here in the north it’s well known that the last weeks of the season can become the absolute best ones.
The exact route for this tour will be decided after taking into account the weather and snow conditions at the moment. We will travel in both mountain and forest terrain, everybody driving their own dog sled.
The setup is simple! We go for a real adventure, straight out on the mountain with our well-trained huskies. In the sledges we bring tents, gas stoves, food and everything else we need to make this a nice experience.

In the coming days, we have different routes that may be relevant. We will decide where the route goes based on the prevailing weather and snow conditions, and in respect to the reindeer. There are four alternatives that are most likely.
Alt 1: Expedition from the mountains to the woodlands
We will pass places like Aktse and the Rapa valley, Kvikkjokk the small mountain village at the end of the road, Årrenjarka and Lillselet which is one of few villages without road connection, and at the end come down to Jokkmokk. We will both stay in cabins but also stay several nights in tents.
Alt 2: The Kaitum valley and the Kebnekaise area
Alt 3: The outskirts of Sarek
Alt 4: The Ritsem area
Most of the nights are spent in tents. Regardless which of these routes we take, we will go through the beautiful nature types of Swedish Lapland with bare mountains, virgin mountain forests, river valleys, wide open plains and frozen lakes.
If we were able to book the weather we would be happy if we could book different kinds of weather, everything from snowstorm to calm sparkling days with blue sky, so that you get to experience them all. Now it doesn’t work like that, so we must take the weather as it comes.
During the afternoon at day 8 (if we haven’t run alternative 1) we will have a car transport down to Jokkmokk. Check in at Jokkmokk Hostel and eat a nice dinner together.
Day 9 - Departure from Jokkmokk
Minimum age is 18 years old.
NOTE! A certain level of fitness is required.
