Tour program - 5 days

Day 1 - Arrival day

We will meet you at the airport in Umeå and take you to Slussfors, a 4 hour transfer by car. Your guide will be waiting to greet you at our beautiful guesthouse, where we will serve a delicious Swedish style dinner. Over dinner, your guide will take you through the beginnings of orientation, giving you valuable information about the weather conditions to expect, the trail and of course…the dogs!

After dinner you will get kitted out with suits, boots and mittens, and your guide will show you what and where to pack for tomorrow’s adventure. After that, you’re welcome to relax in the sauna, chill out in the cosy living room or take a walk to enjoy the beautiful nearby lake.

Day 2

First things first – a hearty breakfast (the most important meal of the day) a quick kit check and it’s time to depart for the kennel, and meet your new team of best friends. With assistance from your guide you will harness your own dogs and make them ready to start.

A quick check to be sure we have everything we need and then it’s time to hit the trail! Over 30km of perfect winter trails will be our playground on this first day.

In the afternoon we arrive at our first wilderness cabin, FlottarKoja which sits beside a beautiful stretch of fast running river. Between the forests and the mountains, with open water all year round, this is a hidden gem of peace and beauty.

Every afternoon when you arrive at a new cabin we will take care of and feed the dogs together. After that we share a traditional swedish evening meal – on the first day that is moose and potatoes fried on a traditional outdoor muurikka.

Day 3

This day we travel through magical mountain landscapes. Along the trail we will see the natural magic created by the arctic weather, like pine forests covered by so much snow that they look more like giant snow sculptures than trees.

This part of Lapland is rarely seen by humans and you can easily get the feeling that you’ve been transported into a fairy tale world.

In the afternoon we arrive at the next cosy wilderness cabin. After chores and a hearty dinner guests have the opportunity to unwind in our wilderness sauna.

Day 4

The more time you spend together with the dogs, the better you get to know them and you’ll start to discover their different personalities.

Nature will impress us anew with different views every day.img_6582 On our last day on the sled we will cross big lakes and travel through ancient spruce forest on the way back home to our husky camp in Slussfors.

After some time to relax it’s dinner time – your guide will come and serve a delicious meal while we all swap stories and talk about the adventures we shared.

Day 5 – Departure day

In the morning you can help yourself to breakfast, and then we will take you to Umeå airport. Although this is goodbye we will share memories that last forever!
