Frequently asked questions
If your question about Kiruna Husky, Dog Sled adventures or even about our Arctic Huskies isn’t answered here, you are always free to contact us!
Is it difficult?
We will provide detailed instructions on how to control the sleds and command the dogs. There will always be a minimum of 2 people on each sled, one driver and one passenger. This means you can assist each other.
what clothing do i need?
We provide winter overalls, winter shoes, mittens, trapper hats. We recommend that you bring warm clothing including woollen undergarments to have underneath the overalls.
what if i wear glasses?
Glasses are fine on the sleds, however if your glasses sit very loosely, we’d suggest that you find a way to secure them, such as with a tight hat or sports strap just in case. Goggles can be useful if the conditions are very windy, so if you have them already, bring them. For the majority of the tours we are in a fairly sheltered forest environment so they are not necessary.
Can I take pictures?
Absolutely! You will take turns driving the sled or being a passenger, You should not take pictures while you are driving, however as the passenger you have plenty of opportunities to do so. We have a coffee break on most tours, ofte by the Lavvu, (which is a traditional Northern Sami style structure, similar to a tipi) and there is a great opportunity to take pictures with the dogs as well as getting to know them better. We’d love to see your pictures so you can tag us on instagram @kirunahusky
How do we get to you?
We can pick you up from anywhere within a 5km radius of Kiruna Centrum. Travel outside of this range is possible but may come with an additional charge. Just let us know in the booking inquiry where in Kiruna you want to be picked up. If you want to bring your own vehicle, you can find our location by searching for kiruna husky on google maps.
what if I'm afraid of dogs?
Our Arctic huskies are very friendly and curious, we always strive for a calm environment, however dogsledding is a very exciting activity for them and they are very energetic dogs. It is also possible to come and meet the dogs in advance through special request. We have never had an issue of any dog hurting anyone, however if you are very afraid of dogs, dog sledding is not recommended as an activity for you.
