Kiruna Husky

WELCOME TO

KIRUNA HUSKY

Where adventure awaits you

Deep in the Swedish Arctic Winter, You are bundled up against the cold. The land is white and blanketed with snow. Your breath is steaming in the cold air. Snowflakes are on your eyelashes. Standing on a sled, there are six dogs lined up in front of you. They are excited. You can feel it as a shimmer in the air. They are excited and your ears fill with the sound of anticipation. The guide gives the signal. Releases the rope holding them back. The sled takes off. The natural landscape swooshes by.

Adventure.

This is how it feels when you take a nature guide tour by dog sled with us!

Explore Swedish Arctic wilderness

The dogs run on the trodden path beneath you. Next to you, metres of snow. The trees are taller than they look, due to the winter’s abundance of snow. The few hours of daylight makes the sky above you glimmer in pinks, oranges and almost green tones. All you hear is the wonderful outdoors, rushing wind, the gentle jingle of the lines and  the thudding of dog paws in the snow. As you glide elegantly between the trees and across the frozen lakes, you feel a sense of awe at the power of these dogs. The feeling is indescribable, but this is a little of what it is like to take a nature tour with us.

EXPLORE KIRUNA WINTER by DOG SLED

Kiruna Husky will take you through Swedish nature with our dog sleds or snowshoe hiking. Our tours use sustainable and silent transportation with our knowledgeable arctic nature guides. Allow us to teach you how to build an igloo and catch fish deep under the ice. Learn of the history of the area, find animal tracks in the snow while looking out for the vibrant local wildlife. All of these options are the perfect way to bring you closer to nature. Besides, it is a great way to learn about the way people can survive above the Arctic circle. Spend a little more time with us on the overnight tours.

WINTER IN KIRUNA

In the Arctic circle winters are long, dark and cold, but there is magic to be found in the snow. The cold allows for breathtaking landscapes, frost covered trees, some bent from the weight of snow. It is only In the darkness we see the lights, the northern lights in particular. The long nights allow for plenty of cosiness. As we move more into spring, the days get lighter and the temperature more mild. Although when temperatures get below 30 celcius there is no feeling like snowflakes freezing on your eyelashes. Just imagine what it’s like if you have a beard! Moreover, it is very important that Kiruna Husky shows respect to local wildlife and culture. Whether we explore with snowshoes, dogs or snowmobiles, we always are mindful to keep environmental impact as low as possible. Furthermore, we work with the local Sámi to ensure we don’t disturb the reindeer herders.

PRIVATE NATURE GUIDE

Traverse through the silent trees and look out for wildlife such as reindeer, moose, arctic hare and many species of birds that call Kalixfors home. Perhaps you can find Kiruna’s official bird, the Rock Ptarmigan (ripa in swedish). While on sleds, you guide the dogs as they rush through the snow. Gliding through forests that stretch wide across the landscape. On foot or by dog, our experienced private guides will show you all the wonder of the arctic! Relax and take a break from your adventure and we will serve you Swedish “fika” by the open fire. Be sure to take loads of pictures of this beautiful landscape. You can cuddle a husky or two, too!

I had an amazing time on this tour! I managed to get on a northern lights tour for my girlfriend and I between Christmas and New Year's. Unfortunately weather did not cooperate this time, but it's still an experience I'll never forget. For starters, you actually get to drive the dog sled, hard to beat that in my book. Second, Sebastian and his staff are next to none in their service. They are very communicative, always available, kind, and an all around good time. It's easy for me to say that they easily go above and beyond to make their guests have the best experience possible. The dogs were amazing and friendly, and the finish in the teepee was a nice warming touch after the ride. When I find myself back in Kiruna I'm definitely coming back, thank you Sebastian and your team!

Kiruna Husky is a must! Not a lot of dog sled companies actually let you drive the sled (you get plenty of instruction and have the option to switch with your partner/passenger half way through the tour), so it was definitely a memorable and unique experience. The staff (the owner Sebastian and his team) were very friendly and easy going, and they answered all our questions about the dogs, the company and their values/practices, and the city of Kiruna in general. Overall, we felt more than accommodated (they include pick up/drop off from your hotel) and welcomed and had an amazing time with Kiruna Husky. You should not leave Kiruna without going on this tour!

I absolutely love this place for it’s dog sled and snowmobile tours. I have already done two dog sledding and one snowmobile tours and I always loved every second of it. The owner (Sebastian) and the whole team are really nice and being with the dogs in this beautiful landscape is a pure joy.

Ich habe schon viel gesehen und bin gut herum gekommen, aber die Zeit bei kiruna husky war überwältigend. Die Hunde laufen alle zeitgleich um einen herum, spielen im Schnee und kommen Abwechselnd hallo sagen. Die Landschaft ist malerisch und die vibes sind total harmonisch. Egal ob man mit Schneeschuhe über einen zugefrorenen See läuft um Eis zu angeln, sich von den Hunden durch die atemberaubende Landschaft ziehen lässt, oder sein eigenes Iglu baut in dem man im angenehm warmen Schlafsack total schall isoliert die Nacht verbringt. Jeder sollte mal da gewesen sein.I've seen a lot and been around a lot, but the time at kiruna husky was overwhelming. The dogs all run around you at the same time, playing in the snow and coming to say hello in turn. The scenery is picturesque and the vibes are totally harmonious. It doesn't matter if you walk with snowshoes over a frozen lake to fish for ice, let the dogs pull you through the breathtaking landscape, or build your own igloo in which you spend the night in a pleasantly warm sleeping bag, totally soundproofed.

What an amazing experience we had !!! We booked the night tour (1adult and 2 kids) with the hope to see a northern light and we Did 😀😀 Sebastian and his team came to pick us up at our hotel. They provided us with extra clothes. We had time to socialised with the dogs. Lea, our guide for the evening, was fantastic and super friendly. She explained everything in details so that the driver feel confident. Afterwards we got some warm beverages. I really want to do it again but in the morning this time. And I will for sure rebook with this company again. Do do not hesitate.
