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.
There is something magical and exhilarating when going out into the untamed forest with a team of well-trained huskies. The combination of cold air, soft snow and enchanting setting orchestrate a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This is the frosty dream of so many adventurers!
For over a decade, Caisa and Ulf Ohlsson have been making this dream come true in beautiful Swedish Lapland. Centrally located, Svedjekojan is just 45 minutes from Luleå and 25 minutes from the port town of Piteå. The farmstead has an idyllic setting, picturesquely situated next to a lake and in the midst of the forest.
From the moment you arrive, you know you have arrived to somewhere special. A huge, Sami-styled teepee dominates the landscape. Guests are first welcomed into the enormous, wooden structure. The huge picture windows give a 360-degree view of the gorgeous and frosty landscape.
Inside this magnificent building, in the centre of the room, there is a huge fire pit with a roaring fire. Guests are greeted with a warm cup of current juice and invited to sit at the rustic wooden tables and chairs around the cosy fire. Here, the charismatic Ulf and Caisa introduce themselves and begin to educate the guests about the simple basics of diving the sled dogs.
