With canoes, hiking boots and good food we travel into the Pearl River Nature Reserve. Old forests, low mountains, small and big lakes where we drink fresh water directly from the lake, catch fish for dinner and spend the nights in tents.
This summer we offer three departures on a 5 days canoe tour in the Pearl River (PĂ¤rlĂ¤lvens) Nature Reserve. Easy paddling on flat water, shorter hikes and possibility for both photographing, fishing and study the flora and fauna.
This tour is perfect for those who want to join on an organized but for that sake not touristic tour. We set our camps close to the canoes so no heavy backpacks.
You will be part of a group and participate in cooking and other camp chores.
Take the chance and book this paddle tour for our introductory price 7500 SEK / person including food, guide, canoe, tent, sleeping bag etc.
Matti looks forward to these tours like a kid waiting for Christmas. But that’s because he likes fresh trout that sizzles in the pan, sea eagles gliding over the camp and the feeling that there could be bears around the next bend.
Soon we can sum up yet another fine winter season. For our part a really good season from several angles. Lots of bookings, fantastic tours and last but not least very nice guests as usual.
Now in the end of the winter season we can conclude that the dogs are doing well and are in really good shape as they have been the whole winter. Probably they would like to run in front of the sleds for a couple of months more. But, the snow will soon disappear and the summer heat is coming so our four legged friends will get a few months of rest during the warmest period.
However, we will continue to go dog sledding as long as the snow conditions is good!
Elsa and Rasmus from Denmark were two of four guests that joined on our longest tour called Explore Sarek National Park 2013.
They sent us a movie with film clips and pictures from the tour and wrote:
Hej Stina and Matti!
Thank you for a fantastic trip in Sarek National Park. It has been an experience of a lifetime that will always stand as something special for us.
We hope that we can come back and go dog sledding again.
Rasmus has made a movie from our tour (don’t forget the speakers, great music)
Best Regards from
Rasmus & Elsa

We have been able to run dog sledding tours since November. In the beginning only short tours but now the winter is in full swing and Jokkmokk’s forests are like a winter wonderland with lots of snow and it feels like sledging in a book of fairy tales. We have lots of fun trails and we run both short tours and tours over several days.
The hours of daylight is short but the colors of the sky are amazing and the colder it is the more wonderful it gets. Aurora borealis is only one of many beautiful light phenomena’s up here above the arctic circle.
The darkest day of the year has passed and now it turns and we will get more and more hours of daylight for each week. Time flies and in end of February the longer tours in the mountains starts.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to send us an e-mail.

The autumn is here and the temperature dips. After the summer’s midnight sun has brighten up the nights it’s once again dark at night. Nature’s colors shift from the healthy green shades to vibrant yellow, orange and red.
The other night we saw our first Northern lights / Aurora Borealis for this season.
Winter is approaching!
The fall training with our huskies started in beginning of August.
The training consists not only of training their physical fitness but also dressage and obedience, the communication with us and socializing in the pack.
It seems like not only we and the dogs are longing for the snow and the cold!
Requests and bookings for our dogsledding tours this coming winter drops in.
The latest addition to our longer dog sledding adventures and expeditions is the tour Husky adventure to the Norwegian border.
On this tour we travel high up in the mountains north from the arctic circle. We will go into areas outside the National parks where very few tourists go. An arctic experience combining comfortable accommodation in huts and winter camping in tents.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the tours, our dogs or us.
Christmas is over and soon 2011 is history. In the days in between Christmas and New Years Eve I head out on a midwinter tour with Emily and Mathieu from France.
Emily and Mathieu booked a private tour for just the two of them. Four days and three nights out in the woods full of snow and a pack of dogs.
The dogs did an awesome job even if the trails some parts were totally overblown of snow. It’s an amazing feeling to stand behind a dogsled with great leader dogs that listen to my every command and go exactly where I tell them to go.
It seems like the winter is here to stay. The snow cover the ground and the ice on the lakes is growing thicker and thicker.
This week we could go on another four day dog sled tour
What I appreciate the most on these tours is to just live out in the nature.
The time with the huskies, the stories around the campfire, the heat from the woodstove in the tent and to lie in my sleeping bag listening to the sounds of the night.
The first half of this winter will go to the history as one of the warmest in a very long time.
The snow has arrived one month later than it usually does up here.
But, finally we got some snow, just in time for this tour and just enough so we could start going with the sleds.
Together with two French guys I made a 4 day tour in the woodlands of Jokkmokk. Living a wilderness life, making fires, sleeping in tents, cooking over open flames and had a good time out with the dogs.
