This holiday allows you to be more than a passenger as you experience the exhilaration of driving your own team of dogs through the snow covered forests of Swedish Lapland. The 'whoosh' of the sledge 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 sledging, 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.
Please note this holiday is not suitable for families with young children. Sledging 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 Lapland Specialists are on hand to discuss which trip might be best for you.
