Have you ever heard the sound of 60 excited Alaskan Huskys communicating?

This sound is what greets a visitor at the Husky-farm located some 35 minutes from Luleå.

The team of dogs are enthusiastic and ready to go and you will soon be seated on a sled with 2 or 3 other people behind a team of 4 or more huskies. When your sled driver, you and the huskies are ready you will take off at pace along trails through the forest and across frozen lakes on a 2 hour adventure. Going on a dog-sledding tour through the Arctic winter is an extraordinary experience in many ways. The strength of the dogs and their capability to pull the sled at high speed in the varied terrain, the crisp climate and stunning surroundings all gives the visitor a thrill never forgotten!

This 3-hour activity available from the beginning of January – beginning of April includes:

  • Guided transfer from participant’s hotel in Luleå or Kulturens hus and return
  • Limited numbers and sizes of adult winter overalls are available for hire

Dogsledding is a family passion

As the warm and personable owners of Svedjekojan, Caisa and Ulf and their 65 beautiful and enthusiastic sled dogs are your guides to fulfilling this snowy adventure that is on so many bucket lists...
