Dog Sledding

Dog sledding has been around for over 1,000 years. Traditionally dog sleds have been used to transport people and goods across long distances. Today dog sledding is still used by some communities as a means transportation but is now most widely enjoyed by tourists throughout the Arctic.

For many dog sledding is relaxing as you glide through the wilderness listening to the crunch of the snow under the skis as you go – for others it’s the excitement of feeling the arctic wind in your face and watching the pristine Arctic wilderness slide by. It’s been described as spiritual, man and dog connecting as one – whatever it is to you, the experience of travelling by dog sled will stay with you forever.

Dog sledding is one of the most popular winter activities in the region, and with trips limited to four people per sled dog team spaces book up fast, so we suggest booking early to avoid disappointment. Kiruna dog sledding is a particularly popular choice especially when paired with Kiruna Northern Lights watching, but each location has a breathtaking and unique appeal waiting to be discovered.
