Welcome to this small eco-touristic husky farm, not so very far situated from Jokkmokk.
35 Happy dogs and 2 happy owners will meet you in a beautiful, but during winter, frosty atmosphere. Here you will have a lovely day, filled with action, interaction and a full belly afterwards.
Keeping and taking care of dogs at the Arctic Circle region in Swedish Lapland is a challenge, day after day, season after season. Learn and experience yourself during this day what the Arctic Live is all about while living and working here. Meet the dogs in their own environment, join a lovely 15 kilometers long dog-sled tour and enjoy a good meal in the traditional log hut by the fire.
If you like, transportation can be organised for an extra fee, from Jokkmokk or Vuollerim and the day starts to get to know each other a little more with a warm drink around the fire in the log hut. You will get warm clothes and info about how your day will look like. Then it is time for you to meet the fluffy companions, already being a little loud. They also are curious to meet the guests and love to take you out on a tour with the sled. Don´t worry, as soon as they start running, the silence returns.
You can choose to sit on the big sled or you can mush your own team. That means, you and your partner or friend ar sharing one sled. One person will steer the sled and one person is sitting on the sled. Off course you can take turns during the tour.
If you want to take pictures, the advice is to sit on the sled and let someone else mush the dogs. Safety first!
Depending on the snow, ice and weather conditions, the actual tour can change a little. After the tour there is lots of extra time to cuddle the dogs, make pictures and we give them a little snack before they go to rest. If the dogs are taken care of, it is high time for the guests and hosts to sit by the fire and eat a good meal together. For the lunch the host presents local products like reindeer meat, homegrown potatoes and homemade bread. Also possible a very nice vegetarian lunch! You have all the time to have a nice conversation. Maybe already dreaming and planning for a longer stay sometime in the future.
Price sitting on sled with guide; 3250 SEK per person
Price mush your own team (shared sled); 3750 SEK per person
Transportation at request.
Time : 10:00
