8 Day Tour

GET READY FOR THE ULTIMATE DOG SLEDDING ADVENTURE

 

Take the trip of a lifetime deep into Lapland’s untouched Vindelfjällens Nature Reserve, the largest nature reserve in Europe. Here, you can drive for days here without meeting another soul. With your guide, Finnmarksløpet champion Petter Karlsson, you will see places you can only reach by husky team and learn how to live life in northern Sweden’s wild and majestic nature in this unique and challenging tour.

We believe in the personal touch. Our tours are all limited to a maximum of 4 guests, which allows us to enjoy a cosy atmosphere and means your guide can give each person any guidance and help you need.

In keeping with our philosophy of keeping every tour small and personal, this tour is totally bespoke – with your expert guide watching the weather and the terrain the group can make decisions day by day and decide what part of the enormous reserve they would like to explore. Below is an example of the kind of experience this tour can offer.
