The ultimate Lapland package - explore the Swedish Taiga on this snowshoe and dog sled experience!
Journey through the largest boreal forest in the world on this authentic Swedish adventure. Experience two of the area's most traditional forms of transport - snowshoeing to a log cabin where you'll meet your pack for a hands-on dog sled experience - racing through Swedish Lapland under the guidance of a Lulea local!
This activity is run and operated from a traditional farmhouse 30-minutes drive outside Lulea - a northerly county in Sweden. Situated on the outskirts of the Taiga (boreal forest), this area is part of Swedish Lapland.
Meet the team at the activity base near Lulea for this snowshoeing & dog sledding package. Combining two of the region's most iconic winter sports, during this half-day adventure, you'll get to hike through the world's largest biosphere the old fashioned way and take the reigns as you learn how to mush your own team of huskies! Like all great adventures in Lapland, your excursion starts with kitting up in the right equipment (snow boots, outerwear and snowshoes). Wrapping up, you'll set off into the Taiga for a 2-hour hike - using crampons and poles to make your way through the frozen forest. Reaching a traditional log cabin, enjoy a fireside lunch before you meet your pack and harness up - learning the commands and techniques you"ll need to navigate the trail ahead. Controlling up to 8 dogs, cruise back through the snow-laden forest - weaving through the snowline and avoiding obstacles along the way. Reaching the camp, mark the moment with some photos and well-deserved belly rubs before you head back to Lulea.
Operating during the winter season from December to March, this activity is suitable for anyone of reasonable physcial fitness from 8 years and up. Adult and junior snowshoes available.
