Calling all mushers! Discover the adventure of life on the trail on a husky holiday in Sweden, Norway or Finland!

If you're looking for a winter holiday with a difference this year, how about a dog sledding adventure in the Nordic countries?

Fixed-date tours from November to May or private husky adventures on custom dates

The season for our dog sledding holidays runs from mid-November to early May depending on the tour.

Nature Travels offers many ways to answer the Call of the Wild. A large selection of scheduled dog sled tours of varying duration and level of challenge are offered on fixed dates throughout the season, ideal for solo travellers, couples or families.

If you would like a private dog sledding tour, most of the tours can also be booked by small groups on custom dates by arrangement.

Our dog sledding tours are ideal for and very popular with solo travellers, couples, small groups of friends or larger groups arranging a private itinerary. A private version of one of the scheduled public tours may be a suitable option if you are 4-6 or more persons travelling together, such as for adventurous training for Armed Forces groups or a charity dog sledding expedition.

Some of the world's best locations for dog sledding

Dog sledding is a wonderful sport, and Sweden, Norway and Finland offer world-class opportunities for a husky holiday. The combination of outdoor adventure, nature experience and personal challenge is hard to resist - and dog sledding is a marvellous way to experience the beauty and tranquility of the winter mountain world.

Many of our experiences run in areas with restricted access for snowmobiles, ensuring there is nothing to disturb the silence but the excited barking of your husky team straining to be off!

From introductory husky tours to challenging wilderness expeditions

Nature Travels dog sledding holidays are suitable for anyone in generally good physical condition, though the level of challenge varies considerably between tours and it is important to ensure you choose the most suitable experience for you.

Life on the trail can be demanding, but above all you will need a willingness to work with the huskies in your dogsled team, caring for them and earning their friendship during your tour. All tours are based on (adult) participants driving their own dogsled, normally with 3-5 Alaskan Huskies or Siberian Huskies depending on the tour.

For some tours, those who are not able or do not wish to drive their own sled can choose to share a sled or use a sled attached to the guide's sled.

You will be given full training and guidance in handling your dogsled before the tour from your local guide. Some strength and fitness is required when braking the sled or when it is necessary to step off the sled to run or "scoot" behind for short distances when travelling uphill, but you will be surprised how quickly you gain confidence and begin to develop the skills needed. You should be very proud of your progress as a musher by the end of your tour!

Each of our dog sledding holidays offers something different, and it is important that you choose the best experience for you. We have outlined information below on the range of options for dog sledding in Sweden, Finland and Norway. You may also find our dog sledding FAQs of interest. Alternatively, please contact us and we will happy to answer any questions you may have.

Combining dog sledding with other activities

Finally, if you like the idea of a husky holiday but are not looking for a dedicated dogsled tour, we offer a range of experiences which include dog sledding alongside other winter activites. Our Aurora Lodge Escape in Lapland and also Winter Activity Adventure in Lapland experiences combine dog sledding with other activities in the beautiful Lapland wilderness.

For families with younger children or those who would like to just "have a go", it is possible to arrange husky day tours when staying at Winter Log Cabin Escape in Värmland, usually using shared sleds driven by a guide.

Compare All Dogsled Tours in Sweden

Why is Sweden good for dog sledding?

The Sweden dogsled tours we offer are located in different parts of Swedish Lapland in the north of the country. This is a wonderful region for dog sledding because:

  • Sweden's vast areas of lowland lakes and forests are ideal for husky sledding throughout the winter, so the season for dog sledding is very long. Typically snow conditions are suitable for sledding by around mid-November and the season continues all the way to late April.

  • Swedish Lapland also has spectacular mountain regions which are perfect for more challenging dogsled tours, staying in mountain cabins or even winter camping. Some of our mountain dogsled tours are possible throughout the season, while others take place only in the later part of the winter from mid-February onwards.

  • You have very good chances to see the Northern Lights during your tour, as you are dog sledding in the far north and in areas away from light pollution. The Northern Lights can be seen on any of our husky tours in Sweden throughout the season up until around early/mid-April, when the nights start to become too light for the Aurora to be visible.

Driving your own dogsled

Dog Sledding Holidays in Sweden:

Our seven options for dog sledding in Sweden range from family-friendly trips to challenging wilderness expeditions. None requires previous sledding experience, but for the more challenging tours it is important that you have an appropriate level of fitness and are used to the outdoors. You'll find more information on the requirements for each dogsled tour under "Good to know" on the relevant tour page.

1: Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen (5 or 6 days, medium)

Who should choose this tour?

  • You are an adult solo traveller or group (children min. age 15 also possible) looking for an adventurous tour in a very remote area, but perhaps don't want a full week's dog sledding. Most tours are 5 days/4 nights (with 3 days' sledding) with some dates 6 days/5 nights (with 4 days' sledding). Tours are possible throughout the winter from November to April.
  • You like very personal, small-scale experiences. Maximum group size is just 4 persons, which also makes it ideal for small private groups of friends (up to 5 persons can be accommodated on private tours).
    • Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjallen

      In Vindelfjällen you may well have the world to yourself! Photo: PK.

      The Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve, located in north-west Sweden, is Europe's largest protected area but there is very little tourism here, so you'll really be getting "away from it all" and may well meet no-one else during your trip.

      This tour takes you up through the lowland forest into a landscape of open, rolling mountains, so you can experience the adventure of mountain dog sledding right through the winter season.

      As a dogsled tour partly in the mountains, this tour can be physically challenging, especially in heavy snow conditions, and requires a general good level of fitness, but is a very popular choice for a wide range of guests.

      Accommodation is first and last night in comfortable cabin near the kennels and nights during the tour in simple wilderness cabins along the route.

2: Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland (4 days, easy-medium)

Who should choose this tour?

  • You are:
    • An adult solo traveller or group looking for a fairly accessible multi-day dogsled tour (total 2 days' sledding + short sled in morning of Day 4) long enough to realy get "into" your mushing adventure without the commitment or extra physical challenge of a longer tour. Tours are offered throughout the season from November to April.
    • Adult(s) with children aged min. 6 (adult and family guests are not mixed within the same tour group) who you are confident will enjoy a multi-day winter experience of this kind. Children under 16 will share sled with an adult.
  • You would like to combine your Sweden dog sledding tour with other activities. Located near Kiruna in the far north of Sweden, this tour makes an ideal combination with, for example, the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. Snowmobile tours can also be added as an optional extra in connection with the start/end of your dogsled tour.
    • Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland

      This tour is suitable for a wide range of both adult and family guests. Photo: Ian Cameron.

      Running in a beautiful landscape of frozen lakes and forest, you will drive your own dogsled team, normally staying one night at the kennels on arrival and two nights in simple cabin at the wilderness camp.

      Children under 16 are half price and travel is straightforward, with regular domestic flights or night train services between Stockholm and Kiruna. The kennels are located just 20 minutes from Kiruna town.

3: Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland (8 days, medium)

Who should choose this tour?

  • You are an adult solo traveller or group wanting a longer dogsled tour (6 days' sledding) in a lowland area. Tours are offered weekly from December to April.
    • This tour is also a great option for private groups of adults or even older school groups (min. age 16). Max. group size is 6 persons for public tours but 7-8 persons per group are possible for private tours.

      Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland

      The beautiful dogs are always the real stars of any dogsled tour. Photo: M. Rullander.

      This is an extended version of Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, spending today 6 days' sledding and staying in wilderness cabins with a combination of day tours from fixed location and sledding to new cabins.

      Choosing a longer dogsled tour increases the level of physical challenge, but being a lowland landscape, the tour is still accessible to a wide range of participants. A week-long tour really gives you the chance to immerse yourself in the sledding and the landscape, and to get to know and love your husky teams even more!

4: Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland (8 days, medium-hard)

You should choose this tour?

  • You are an adult solo traveller or group wanting a fairly challenging week-long dogsled tour (6 days' sledding - a longer 10-day tour with 8 days' sledding is also available) in spectacular mountain scenery and wish to travel from mid-February to April.
  • You have always wanted to experience the King's Trail, Sweden's most famous long-distance trail. This tour normally runs on the section of the trail between Abisko and Kebnekaise, staying in mountain cabins along the route.
    • Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland

      The mountain scenery in this area makes a stunning backdrop to the tour. Photo: Alistair McGregor.

      Dog sledding in the mountains adds an extra dimension to any tour. With a number of uphill sections, you will need to assist your husky teams regularly by "scooting" with one foot or pushing/pulling the sled.

      Weather and trail conditions in the mountains can be very variable, so the level of physical challenge and the sledding time needed between the overnight cabins can be different for each tour. In deep snow or challenging weather this can be a physically challenging tour, especially on days gaining altitude. In good weather with hard-packed trails, the daily distances can be covered relatively quickly - in the mountains, nothing is predictable!

      The stunning mountain scenery and the experience of life in the mountain cabins, where you will also meet other adventurers doing the King's Trail on skis, makes this a very special choice for a dogsled tour.

5: Dog Sledding and Winter Camping on the King's Trail (8 days, hard)

Who should choose this tour?

  • You are an adult solo traveller or group interested in the Husky Mountain Expedition outlined above but wanting a week-long dogsled tour (6 days' sledding) with the extra challenge and adventure of winter camping.
    • Dog Sledding and Winter Camping on the King's Trail

      The element of winter camping adds an extra level of challenge to any tour. Photo: Jenny&anbsp;.

      Normally following the same route as the Husky Mountain Expedition cabin tour, this winter camping alternative increases the level of challenge, as you will need to prepare camp each night for sleeping under canvas!

      As with the Husky Mountain Expedition, variable weather and trail conditions can greatly affect the level of challenge encountered,making this a real winter adventure for which you should have a good level of fitness and be used to outdoor life.

      You will normally camp near the mountain cabins to be able to make use of some of the facilities there.

6: Wilderness Dogsled Adventure in Vindelfjällen (8 days, hard)

Who should choose this tour?

  • You are a solo adult or group looking for a challenging wilderness dogsled tour in the later part of the winter (tours are offered in late March and April), typically covered greater daily distances than is possible for other mountain tours. This tour is also ideal for private groups and is a very personal and small-scale expereince with group size just 4 persons.
  • You want to drive a team of racing-trained huskies through one of Sweden's most remote areas.
  • You have been dog sledding before and are looking for a "next step" experience (previous sledding experience is not essential, but this is an excellent choice for guests who have been dog sledding before).
    • As an extended version of Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfällen,

      Wilderness Dogsled Adventure in Vindelfjallen

      This is the most challenging and remote of our Sweden dog sledding tours. Photo: PK.

      A unique opportunity to drive competition-trained husky teams through a stunning landscape of rolling mountains in north-west Sweden, this is the most challenging of our dogsled tours in Sweden and is a real "bucket list" adventure.

      Accommodation during the tour is in wilderness cabins along the route, with the option to camp on some nights. The itinerary for this tour can be varied to take account of weather and trail conditions and to a certain extent the abilities/experience of the guests. First and last nights are in comfortable cabin near the kennels.

7: One Day and Overnight Husky Tours in Kiruna (1 or 2 days, easy)

At Nature Travels we specialise in longer, multi-day dogsled tours, but these shorter options will be ideal for you if:

  • You are an adult solo traveller, group or family with children (min. age 6).
  • You are travelling to the Kiruna area in the far north of Sweden for other activities and wanting to do a short dogsled tour as one of your activities rather than a longer tour, but would still like the option to drive your own sled and work closely with the dogs.
    • One-day and Overnight Husky Tours in Kiruna

      Working closely with the huskies is a feature of even our shorter tours. Photo: Jenny Simpson.

      These options are shortened variations of Discover Dog Sledding described above. Choose between a day tour with no overnight accommodation, or the Overnight tour, which starts with pick-up at 13.00 on Day 1. You sled to wilderness cabin where you enjoy the experience of simple cabin life (with sauna!) for the night, before short sled back to kennels the following morning.

      This is a very good choice if you have not been sledding before and are unsure whether you or your children would enjoy a more extended trip (you can always return for one next winter!), or if you are short of time.

Compare All Dogsled Tours in Finland

Why is Finland good for dog sledding?

Our two options for dog sledding in Finland are a little different from our other dogsled tours, which typically move between overnight locations. For our Finland tours, both have an accommodation base from which you explore the surrounding area on day tours, returning to the cabin each night.

The advantages of having a fixed base for your dogsled tour are:

  • You do not need to pack/unpack your gear, clear the cabins/break camp, etc, each day. This can be both energy- and time-consuming, so sledding from a fixed location means you can really focus on the sledding and also allows you to really settle in to your accommodation for the tour and make yourself at home!
  • Since there is no fixed minimum sledding distance to cover each day (as there would be on a point-to-point cabin tour, for example), tours can be very flexible to take account of factors such as weather, temperature and trail conditions as well as to a certain extent to adapt the level of challenge of the dogsled tour and distance covered to particular participants.
  • The tours still offer a variety of trails to explore each day, which can be easily extended/shortened as necessary, meaning that sledding from a fixed base is by no means necessarily less varied than a point-to-point tour.

Dog Sledding Holidays in Finland:

Our Finland dogsled tours take place either in Kainuu, in the east of the country near the Russian border, or in the far north of Finnish Lapland.

1: Polar Lights Husky Sledding in Finnish Lapland (6 days, medium)

Who should choose this tour?

  • You are an adult solo traveller or group looking for a reasonable-length dogsled adventure (4 days' sledding with optional extra sledding on departure day) in the far north sledding in a very remote area.
  • You would enjoy the logistical advantages of a fixed base compared to moving overnight locations during the trip and some small luxuries such as LED lighting not normally available on wilderness cabin tours.
  • You would like the chance to see the Northern Lights during your tour - being located in the far north, this experience gives very good chances to see the Northern Lights throughout the period in which tours are offered (December to late March, including Christmas and New Year).
    • Polar Lights Husky Sledding in Finnish Lapland

      The Pallas-Ylläs National Park offers remote sledding in a winter wonderland landscape. Photo: PH.

      Accommodation is in a simple but cosy and comfortable cabin on the edge of Pallas-Ylläs National Park, a beautiful wilderness area of forest and fjells perfect for exploring by dogsled. Sauna by the lake is available each night at the cabin and although there is no mains electricity, simple LED lighting and also camera/mobile charging is available.

2: Private Dogsled Tours for Two in the Taiga Forest (4-6 days, easy)

Who should choose this tour?

  • A couple (or two friends happy to share twin room) who would like private sleeping accommodation, which is not normally possible on a multi-day dogsled tour. There is also the possibility to include the luxury of hotel accommodation - there are a number of itinerary options, either staying at the kennels on all nights or choosing hotel accommodation (in standard room or suite) at the start/end of the tour, and extra nights at hotel or extra days' sledding and kennel accommodation can also be added.
  • Those who would enjoy the unique flexibility that can be offered by a private dogsled tour. As the only guests, the tour can be very easily adapted to suit your needs, with the option to drive own sleds or share with your partner, cover different trails each day or practise your favourite, be out sledding for longer or shorter periods, etc.
    • Private Dogsled Tours for Two in the Taiga Forest

      This is a great option for real dog lovers - some of the dogs even sleep in the cabin! Photo: RT.

      A very personal and small-scale experience, this tour brings you into the home and life of your hosts' to really experience what it is to be a musher and get to know the dogs at this small kennel.

      Located in eastern Finland, you're unlikely to see the Northern Lights on this tour, but the warm hospitality of your hosts, the very special atmosphere of the kennels and the beauty of the surrounding winter landscape makes this a unique dogsled experience.

Compare All Dogsled Tours in Norway

Why is Norway good for dog sledding?

Norway is world-famous for its breathtaking mountain landscapes, and choosing Norway for your dog sledding holiday can be a wonderful way to combine the adventure of a husky tour with the splendour of the Norwegian landscape.

But with a length of more than 2500km north to south (not including the archipelago of Svalbard, located 800km north of the mainland), the country offers huge variation, which is reflected in the range of dogsled tours we offer in the country:

  • The majestic mountain peaks of central Norway and the rolling fjells of Trøndelag are easily accessible from Oslo or Trondheim, meaning travelling to stunning dog sledding locations can be easier and lower cost than tours further north.
  • In the far north of Norway, the tundra region of Finnmark offers a very different landscape - wide, open spaces of wilderness with a magical atmosphere.
  • For the truly adventurous, set your compass towards the North Pole and journey to Svalbard, one of the most northerly settlements in the world, and a treeless wilderness of glacial valleys and imposing mountains and the location of one of our most challenging dogsled tours.

Dog Sledding Holidays in Norway:

Our Norway dogsled tours offer a variety and landscapes, from the beautiful alpine mountain scenery of Jotunheimen to the wilderness of Svalbard.

1: Aurora Husky Adventure in Finnmark (5 or 8 days, medium)

Who should choose this tour?

  • You are an adult solo traveller, group or family with older children (min. age 13) looking for a moderately challenging and unique dogsled experience. Three tour options are available: a 5-day tour with 3 days' sledding, an 8-day itinerary with 3 days' sledding and additional activities at the kennels, and an 8-day itinerary with 6 days' sledding.
  • You appreciate a strong focus on tradition and sustainable living. The cabins at the kennels, where you stay for the first and last nights of the tour (and also additional nights for one of the 8-day itineraries) have not only been hand-built but are also completely furnished and decorated with hand-crafted items from local materials. Even the clothes you will be wearing when sledding are hand-made!
    • Aurora Husky Adventure in Finnmark

      The handcrafted cabins at the kennels are a unique attraction for this tour. Photo: EH.

      Located in the far north of mainland Norway, these tours offer the possibility to sled on the Finnmark plateau and are a perfect choice for dog sledding in a remote and beautiful wilderness area but with a level of challenge accessible to most guests with general good level of fitness. There is the flexibility to use tandem sleds where both persons drive at the same time, progressing to driving own sled as you gain confidence and experience.

      When out "on tour", accommodation is in simple wilderness cabins as for other dogsled experiences.

      For the 8-day itineraries, there is also a Sámi cultural element where you have the opportunity to visit a local family and learn something of the life of a reindeer herder. Nearby Karasjok if the home of the Sámi parliament and a centre for indigenous political administration.

2: Midnight Sun Dog Sledding in Svalbard (7 days, hard)

Who should choose this tour?

  • Solo adults or small groups (max. 3 persons) with previous outdoor experience seeking a challenging wilderness expedition with winter camping in a uniquely remote and untouched region.
  • Those looking to travel later in the winter season - these tours run only in April and May - and experience the very special feeling of dog sledding in 24-hour daylight!
    • Midnight Sun Dog Sledding in Svalbard

      Where else but Svalbard can you dogsled in a landscape like this? Photo: T. Simonsen.

      Due to its extreme isolation and the exposed nature of the terrain, Svalbard offers possibilities for Norway dog sledding adventures no other location can. This is a winter camping tour taking place during the period of the Midnight Sun, when there is daylight 24 hours a day.

      Beginning and ending with nights in simple accommodation at the kennels, the tour features 5 days' sledding on an expedition into the wilderness, winter camping each night.

      With very small group sizes (just max. 3 persons per tour) and only a few departures each year, this is an exclusive dogsled experience you will remember for a lifetime.

3: Husky Sledding at the Foot of the Jotunheimen (2-5 days, medium)

Who should choose this tour?

  • Solo adults, small groups of families with older children (min. age 14) who would like adventurous sledding in breathtaking mountain scenery but with easy access from Oslo (the kennels are just 4 hours by direct bus from Oslo, making this our easiest dogsled tour to travel to).
  • Those wishing to combine their dogsled tour with other activities. Beitostølen, where the tours begin, offers a number of options for winter activities before or after your tour.
    • Husky Sledding at the Foot of the Jotunheimen

      Enjoy a husky hug and beautiful scenery at the same time! Photo: BH.

      The Jotunheimen mountains are one of the jewels in the crown of Norway's stunning nature. While you're too far south for Northern Lights here, the scenery will more than compensate.

      With flexible tour durations of 2-5 days, these dogsled tours span a wide range of challenge levels, with the shorter tours accessible to a wide range of guests and longer tours being challenging adventures. In all cases, the beautiful mountains of Jotunheimen and Langsua National Park offer the opportunity for world-class dog sledding.

      The tours are based on using tandem sleds, where both persons drive at the same time (though solo sleds area also available), making it much easier to work with the dogsled teams in this challenging mountain environment.

      Despite its southerly location, the area has a very long winter season, with conditions for dog sledding typically suitable well into May.

4: Go Dog Sledding in Trøndelag (3 or 5 days, medium)

Who should choose this tour?

  • Solo adults, small groups of families with older children (min. age 15) who would like a relatively short tour easily accessible from Trondheim, but which offers a real flavour of mountain dog sledding.
  • Female travellers who would like a ladies-only tour (there are mixed and female-only tour dates available).
    • Go Dog Sledding in Trøndelag

      The night in wilderness cabin in the mountains is a great introduction to longer cabin tours. Photo: NHA.

      Just an hour from Trondheim, this tour combines accommodation in comfortable chalet with (for the Open and 5-day tour itineraries) a night in wilderness cabin in the mountains.

Dog sledding is a unique and wonderfully addictive experience, and there are no better places for it than the Nordic countries! If you haven't tried it, you really should. And if you already have, then what are you waiting for? It's time to get back on the trail!
