A BIT ABOUT US AT KIRUNA HUSKY
We are an arctic nature guide company in Kiruna. We use dog sled to explore the nature around Kalixfors. In the winter, you can try dog sledding, snowshoe hiking, ice fishing, igloo building adventures, and more with us every year from October through April. You don’t want to wait for the snow to come? Also during the autumn season we invite you to join us on our training tours and enjoy the crisp autumn weather and the impressive strength of our huskies! Even in the summer, you are invited to come and meet the huskies and us and spend a few hours with 40 happy dogs! We have an open and creative atmosphere – if you have an idea for something you would like to do in the Arctic nature, do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to make your dreams come true!

A little history
Sebastian Kamp was always a dog lover an adventurer but fell in love with dog sledding in 2009. Moreover the northern Scandinavian lifestyle and working outdoors felt like home. After learning the trade, he took the leap, by putting down roots in Kiruna and starting Kiruna Husky in 2011. This allowed him to bring his own values and ideas to his business, as he wanted the adventurers who toured with him to have a more hands on experience, as well as a more relaxed and slower paced adventure, to give time for people to fall in love with his dogs too. Sebastian and his partner Chiara have recently welcomed their new son to join the team – although he is a little small now!
Our little team
There are three full time artic nature guides and sled dog handlers, Chiara, Lea and Peter. Chiara is currently taking a break from mushing as she has welcomed a new life to the team! Lea and Peter fell in love with the work when they worked in Norway and now work together at Kiruna Husky. They are a fantastic team and you will not find better guides anywhere else!
We love to hug and play with our friends!
Chiara is always keeping an eye on us!
Chiara should be considered the brains behind this operation. You’ll find her to be friendly, warm and inviting. She keeps everyone in line with a firm but kind hand. Devoted to the dogs, she keeps a close eye on their health and wellbeing. She’s mother to one, but in a way, she is mother to all.
Lea has a great attention to detail, she is constantly analysing every situation to ensure the best outcome is achieved and reacts extremely quickly to difficult situations. She is experienced, captivating and her love for dogs shines through in every interaction with them. She lives with Peter and her two cats. Bosse and Frank, as well as a retired sled dog who has become a mascot of sorts – Kai. You’ll meet him as soon as you come through the gate!

Our Best friends!
Peter is knowledgeable and can respond to any situation with confidence and experience. He is interesting to talk to and you can always ask him for advice – as he has experience in almost everything!
Martina & Petre
We have two full-time sled dog handlers, Martina and Petre. They are new to the company this season and have settled in very well! They are knowledgeable, quick to learn and are engaging to talk to. They learn new things quickly and are very capable for the job and have a compassion for the dogs that can not be taught. They are naturals with the dogs and have quickly integrated into the business!
Cate is our marketing and graphic designer. Unlike everyone else she doesn’t have to work out in the cold! Which she is personally quite grateful for. She loves dogs too, so having 40 of them as co-workers is quite a flex!
We also have a full-time adult student sled dog handler – Josephine. She is working at Kiruna Husky this season to train in tourism – specifically dog sledding. One of her nicknames is “swiss army Jos” because if you need something while you are with us, she will find a way to get it. Jos and Cate are twins too!
Jos is very kind to us!
We love running and playing outside
The welfare of our huskies is our top priority. With this in mind they are happy, healthy and receive care appropriate to their needs. In the winter they do what they love most – running, next to eating! Even during the summer when they aren’t running they have time to play outside with their kennel mates and run free on our large property. Good food and plenty of exercise make these canine athletes the friendliest and happiest you will find. We treat each dog individually to ensure their best care, and we take their needs and individual personalities very seriously.
