Imagine you are being pulled by dogs. You have no worries, only to feel the thrill of the speed, the silence and the beautiful Arctic landscapes.
The guide will drive the sled, so you will feel free and enjoy the experience. While on the dogsled you can take pictures and videos. There will be a small break, during the tour, where we let the dogs catch their breath and you will also have a chance to pet the dogs and warm up, as it can be quite cold in the Arctic! When we are back in the dog yard you can help the guide with feeding the dogs, unharnessing them and walking them back to their homes.
In December and January, the afternoon tours will end in darkness, so the only tour we do have that you will experience both the daylight and total darkness, total darkness in December and January also means a good chance to see the northern lights.
Minimum age: 5
A dogsled tour where you will be driving your own sled in the wilderness that surrounds Abisko. One person, one sled, it’s you and the dogs. But don’t worry, there is always two guides leading the tour. The tour will start with an introduction of how to go dogsledding and then you will be ready to go! You will take in the silence and nature around Abisko during the tour.
This is an active activity. You will work as a team with the dogs, helping them in the up hills, breaking in the downhills and keeping balance. Dogsledding is hard work. The guides will be there to help you out during the entire tour. After the tour you will have time to thank the dogs and have the chance to take pictures with them.
