Combining dog sledding with winter camping is a unique and challenging winter holiday
This expedition is for active fresh air
On this tour we go together for a few days with our sled dogs in the Lapland mountains.
The mountains of Swedish Lapland are a spectacular area for dog sledding. The majestic landscape provides the ideal backdrop for a real Arctic dog sledding adventure
Immerse yourself totally and become a dog musher! Spend time on a spectacular mountain trail and build a unique bond with your team of Huskies.
Arrival in lapland and transfer from the airport in Arvidsjaur
to the Lapplands Drag huskyfarm where
we will show you your cosy accomodation and give you a chance
to check out the place, unpack and settle in.
Then in the evening a welcome dinner with traditional Scandinavian food is waiting for you and we
talk about the days in the mountains ahead of us.
After a generous breakfast the adventure begins.
We start by feeding the dogs and then we prepare the sleds together.
You will be introduced to dogsledding and how to handle our sleddogs.
Our guide helps you harnessing and starting off if needed.
We will soon be on the way with the dogsleds covering approximately 30 km
across frozen rivers and through white forests.
When we return to the farm we feed the dogs together and pack & prepare
everything for the coming mountaintour.
"Spring winter", as the later part of the winter season is known in northern Sweden, is the ideal time for winter camping, offering longer hours of daylight and generally milder temperatures.
The following 4 days you will be running a team of your own Siberian Huskies through some of Sweden's most spectacular mountain landscapes.
Along the way you will be camping wild in the mountain wilderness or at a mountain station for a taste of civilisation!
Each night you will tend to the needs of the dogs, building snow shelters when necessary to protect them from the mountain winds and melting snow for them to drink.
Each participant drives their own dogsled with team of Siberian Huskies.
Day Off for relax and icefishing.
Later in the evening a delicious dinner awaits us in our warm and cosy barbecuehut
(grillkåta) and we will spend the evening in front of an open fire.
The last day is, unfortunately, the day of departure.
After breakfast you will say goodbye to the dogs and
we take you back to the airport.
