Sled dog overnight tour

Activity facts

Duration: 19 hours Suitable for: Everyone Included: Your own dog sled, accommodation in wilderness cabin (shared double room), wholesome sauna experience with sauna snacks, three course dinner & breakfast Gather at: Meeting Point
Drive your own dog sled and sleep in a wilderness cabin. A fantastic winter adventure with dogs and a night in the wilderness. Take the opportunity to try the sauna and look for the northern lights.
Driving a dog sled is a classical winter activity. You are picked up from Icehotel with a snowmobile sled and taken across the frozen Torne River to the Husky Homestead where you meet your own team of dogs. The dog sled guide walks you through the equipment and safety before you head out on a fantastic winter adventure, driving your own dog sled following the guide. Enjoy the tranquility and the sound of the dog’s paws against the snow while you are driving deeper into the woods. Eventually you reach a cozy wilderness camp, secluded in the forest. Warm up in the wood-fired sauna and nibble on the sauna snacks that work up your appetite. You are served a delicious two-course dinner and hopefully you will see the northern lights during the evening. You sleep in a shared double room with breakfast the next morning. After breakfast you help to harness the dogs and drive your own dog sled back to the Husky Homestead again. The tour ends with a transfer back to Icehotel.
