International television about Swedish Ecotourism

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.

The Awareness of ecotourism and responsible travel is increasing and more and more people are looking to eco-certified tour operators when choosing their holiday.
Jokkmokkguiderna is an approved Nature´s Best operator since 2003.
The Nature’s Best labels tour operators who go the extra mile for their landscape, local people, the environment and most importantly for you as a customer.

Welcome to take a peek into our life!

Winter and dogsledding season is here

Bec from Australia first time on a dog sled

  • 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.

    Northern lights over Jokkmokk

  • 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.

    Kennel life with happy huskies

    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.

    In a few months, winter is here!

    Dog sledding adventures 2013
    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!

    Living life in the wilderness!

    Husky love
    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 (Pärlälvens) 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.

    The winter is coming to an end

  • 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!

    Guest review from Sarek 2013

    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

    Winter wonderland in Jokkmokk

  • 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.
    Stina & Matti
