Overview

This thrilling wilderness adventure is the perfect way to experience Lapland's great outdoors as you 'mush' your own team of huskies through the beautiful forests of Jukkasjarvi. Action packed throughout, you’ll enjoy snowmobiling and sleeping in a rustic wilderness lodge, before finishing with a night at the Icehotel. With luck you may even see the magical northern lights, completing an unforgettable adventure.

This holiday offers the exhilaration of driving your own team of huskies through the snow covered forests of Swedish Lapland. The 'whoosh' of the sled runners on snow and the panting of the ever-eager huskies are the only sounds you will hear across the beautiful, silent landscape. It is only when the sledge stops that the silence is broken by the sounds of the dogs eager to be on the move!

Whilst sledding, remember to be on the lookout for Arctic wildlife and the tell-tale signs of footprints in the snow - possibly even spot a moose! And at this latitude, when the skies are dark, keep your fingers crossed for an appearance of the northern lights.

3 or 4-night Options

You have a choice of duration on this holiday. The 4-night trip is suited to those with a higher level of fitness with an extra day on the trail. The trip follows the same forest trails as the 3-night itinerary but also extends to higher ground, weather permitting spending two nights at the Wilderness Lodge. Also, on the 4-night trip the transfer from the airport to the Mushers Lodge is by husky sled.


Please note this holiday is not suitable for families with young children. Sledding days can prove demanding especially on arms and shoulders so these trips are unsuitable for children or those without a good general level of fitness. Our Travel Specialists are on hand to discuss which trip might be best for you.
