Once again we can look back on a wonderful winter season! Lapland has once again delivered a winter full of snow with sparkling northern lights, cold, storms, quiet starry nights, sunshine, blue sky and much more.
Our huskies are closest to our hearts and they have as always helped us in the best way to carry out with the tours. All our partners in terms of accommodation facilities, taxi drivers, guides and all the people in the village who meet our guests have basically all been spot on examples of good hosting. Last but not least, a big thanks to all our super nice guests who contributed to all the fun we have had together.
In the Jokkmokk mountains, we still have snow until the end of May. After a full season with dog sledding we do not feel that we have had enough. We will continue to go sledding as long as it is possible.
We are currently in the planning of the winter season 2015/2016 and all dog sledding tours will be updated shortly with new dates, so keep an eye on this website. We are already excited, and this season is not even over.

Autumn training of our Siberian huskies are in full swing since the beginning of August. The dogs are harnessed in front of quads which they pull. The sleddogs happiness to start working again after the summer break can not be mistaken. They are as eager and enthusiastic as we are.
As the temperature drops, we increase the distances on the training tours. Very soon we can feel how the strength of the dog team increases, and the dogs’ stamina gets better with each passing week.
Are you keen to join us and our huskies on one of the dog sledding tour this winter, please send us an email. Sometimes the answer is delayed a bit but then you’ll know that it’s because we’re out there and training our four-legged friends.

The German DW Deutsche Welle came to us for a visit in November. They were filming a feature about Swedish Ecotourism for their series Fair Lifestyle – Travel.
Stina was out on an Overnight tour with dog sled at the time together with Hilde and Simon from Belgium. Matti and the DW reporter joined on day two for filming and interviews.

Dog sledding season is on! November has so far delivered with snow, cold temperatures and fabulous Northern Lights . What more can you wish for!
The first Overnight tour with dog sled has already been done with a happy couple from Australia that took a visit to Jokkmokk on their Scandinavian road tour.
We are happy to be back on the sleds and looking forward to a great winter with our huskies.

The auroral activity is intensive at the moment. Many evenings and nights the Aurora Borealis is dancing over the sky here in Jokkmokk and it seems like we are going to have another dog sledding season with lots of Northern Lights.
It’s getting darker earlier and earlier and many training runs with our huskies are run at dusk or after sunset in the dark and we therefore get lots of opportunities to see the green flames of Aurora draping the sky.
If you are interested to learn more about Northern Lights and see more photos of the phenomena please check out our Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis facts.

Here is a short movie from our kennel. Today we have 42 Siberian Huskies in the kennel and a litter of puppies will be born in October. Every day we let all the huskies free run in the big playground where they play around and socialize with each other under supervision from us.
Training in front of the ATV is running since the middle of August and all the dogs are running several times a week and are trained both physically, mentally and socially.
Our dogs are not just our livelihood, but above all our passion and a big part of our way of life.
More about our kennel and the dogs can be found at our kennels website Working Husky Kennel.

A nice summer is coming to an end and in a few months winter is here with crystal white snow, crisp air and northern lights dancing over the sky.
Thinking about standing on the dog sled behind a happy and well trained dog team always makes us long for the dog sledding season.
Since beginning of June all our dog sledding tours are updated and we already have some bookings on the longer dogsledding adventures and expeditions.
We also offer short dog sled tours which is a great way to get a taste of mushing. These shorter tours from 1 hour up to 2 days are booked upon request.
To get a glimpse of what it’s like on our adventures with the huskies you will find lots of photos in our gallery and we also have some inspiring videos.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any wonderings!

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.
