We start with a visit in the kennel where you can see how the dogs live. We let a bunch of dogs out from the kennels to run around and play and get some cuddles.
We have a special belt to put around our waist where we will attach the dog. You will now get to feel the power of a sled dog when we take a short walk down to the lake where we will have some swedish “fika”. Means boiling coffee and having a good time next to the fire and cuddling with the dogs.
The visit takes about 2 hours. You need to have clothes suitable for the weather, and you might get dirty and full of dog hair and dog kisses.
Price: 250 sek/adult and kids up to 12 years 150 sek/person. Kids are welcome together with an adult.

Midnight sun run!
In the warm sun during the days, the huskies are not doing so much, mostly sleeping in the shadow somewhere. But when the sun is getting lower the temperature drops and the huskies wakes up again! It’s time to go for a midnight sun run!
On this tours we ride on 4-wheeled wagons with space for one person driving and one or two persons sitting on. The wagons has footsteps inside the wheels where the driver will be standing, and a handlebar that you use for steering and braking as you do on a bicycle.
When you arrive at the kennel we will start with a safety instruction about how to drive the wagons. Then we will release the dogs and to put harnesses on together and prepare the teams. Some of the dogs will go crazy and start barking and screaming, and some will just calmly wait for us to get ready. But as soon we start rolling, you will only hear the sound of gravel under the wheels.
And as the huskies most of the wild animals also prefer the colder nights. We might see mooses, foxes, hares or capercaillies along the way. We also know that there are bears in the forest around here, and some time needs to be the first time to see one. Maybe it’s on your tour!
Half way through the tour we will stop and you can change drivers. Then we will continue on to the river Vindelälven, that is a biosphere area chosen by UNESCO. The Vindel river is unregulated and one of our 4 national rivers in Sweden. And in this fantastic river we will let the dogs cool down and drink some water before we go to our fireplace to make some coffee and have a nice time watching the river, solve some world problems and just enjoy life.
After the fika we turn around home again, now you know how everything is working and you can look even deeper into the forest to search for some wildlife. Back home we will give the dogs some snacks and thank them for the tour. We harness of and let them back in to kennel again before it’s time for us to say good night and thanks for this time.
Maybe we will see you again on a sled next time.
