Activity description

Fully immerse yourself in Swedish Lapland's winter wonderland on this all-inclusive overnight self-drive dog sledding safari from Kiruna! Enjoy delicious meals, relax in a sauna, and take in the majesty of the Northern Lights! Welcoming adventurers ages 5 and up.

The vast Arctic wilderness surrounding Kiruna makes it a premier destination for outdoor activity enthusiasts, especially during the winter. Located above the Arctic Circle, it is one of the best places in the world to witness the incredible Northern Lights. What better way to experience the magic of the Arctic than by booking a private wilderness retreat?

Your adventure begins in Kiruna, where you will be picked up from your accommodations (please specify when booking) for the scenic drive via the picturesque landscapes of the Torne River towards the cabin. Upon arrival, you'll relax in a wood-heated sauna, then enjoy Lappish cuisine with wine or beer. If luck is on your side, you may be graced by the dancing colours of the Northern Lights before heading to bed in your cosy cabin. The perfect way to end an enchanting evening! 

The next morning, you'll rise and shine with a hearty breakfast. Then, the fun starts! You and your group (a maximum of 12 people) will put on your winter gear, including thermal overalls, boots, a hat, and gloves, and head outside to meet the adorable huskies. Your guide will go over a safety briefing and an introduction to dog sledding. Next, you'll discover the thrill of driving a team of energetic Alaskan huskies through the snowy landscapes. Don't forget your camera, you don't want to miss these amazing photo opportunities! After saying goodbye to your four-legged friends, you'll board the transfer back to Kiruna with lifelong memories of your time in Swedish Lapland.

For an incredible adventure in Sweden, reserve your spot for this overnight self-drive dog sledding safari from Kiruna!
