Aurora hunt by dogsled

A top-rated experience on TripAdvisor! Immerse yourself in the dark wintry nights of Lapland and escape the city lights by sitting on a big sled pulled by a team of excitable, yet friendly, Alaskan Huskies. The trail winds its way through pine and birch forest down to the famous Torne River where you can see the night sky stretching out far in front of you. If the Aurora forecast is on your side, and the sky is clear, it’s possible to see the lights dancing in the sky!

At our half-way point we stop at a traditional Sami-style tipi, lávvu, for a warming drink and homemade apple cake. Here you can choose to take comfort and warmth from the open fire, or you can marvel at the display of Aurora outside before we head home again. Our kennel is just 10 minutes outside of Kiruna and yet it feels like a different world far away from crowds and city light pollution. It’s the perfect tour for anybody wishing to increase their chances of spotting the Northern Lights, but if the Aurora are not visible, you can still enjoy an excellent experience with our huskies who love a cuddle!
