    Totally awesome
    We did the six day tour which was the perfect duration. This is a physically challenging trip but absolutely worth every ounce of effort. Petter and Angela are amazing hosts and we were very privileged to have Petter (World Champion Musher) as our guide. You have your own sled and team of amazing dogs to travel over incredible terrains and past beautiful scenery. We stayed in a variety of cabins from small and basic to big and luxurious, the food (provided by Angela) was outstanding. We cannot rate the experience or the company highly enough.

    What an amazing experience
    What an awesome experience . This isn’t a tourist sled dog ride . This is a mini expedition into the mountains . Over 100 km in 3 days driving my own team of 5 dogs (No whip needed just a good foot on the brake pedal ) . Very competent and friendly professional guide Julie ( also awesome cook ) and great food . Comfy warm cabins overnight . Truly great trip of a lifetime . Would definitely recommend and hope I will be back for more

    Top of your bucket list
    The most amazing holiday! If you like dogs, are looking for a life time experience, want an adventure in a magical place, then this is a must do. We did the 5 day (3 days dog sledding) tour and it was incredible. Our guide, Karina, was fantastic - knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We had a great time with her and the other 2 guests on the tour. The dogs are all very well looked after and it is clear they are loved by everyone that works at the kennels. If you want to feel part of the team whilst on tour, then this is for you. Each night you help with the chopping of wood and dog food, feeding the dogs, collecting water etc which is all part of the adventure. Our dogs all had their unique personalities which we got to know over the 3 days - and didn't want to say goodbye. We also paid a bit extra to have an extra sledding day after the tour (as our bus was not until the early evening). We took the younger dogs out on a short sled ride to get them used to sledding and then resting whilst Sven cooked us a delicious chicken stir fry over an open fire. A great trip that should be on everyone's bucket list!

    Incredible experience ❤️
    We went on the 5 day trip- it truly was a white Christmas! The dogs were amazing - v well cared for. Our trip leader Julie was caring, patient and extremely competent and looked after us well. The scenery was breathtaking, and the chance to be in that kind of nature was very special. We all mucked in with making fires/chopping wood/bedding the dogs down etc which is part of the experience. Toasting sandwiches over a wood fire in the snow was a unique experience. I cannot recommend this trip enough. From end to end it was well organised, fun and we felt completely involved rather than just ‘passengers’ . Loved it.

    A unique and unforgettable experience in amazing landscapes
    We booked the 5 day tour and Julie was our guide. It was an absolutely magical experience and we made unforgettable memories. We are a family of four with two teenagers (17 & 15). You need a certain level of fitness and be ready to deal with severe weather (we had -30C), but Julie made it all work. The organisation is perfect, the equipment top notch, the food fantastic (grilled sandwiches on a campfire !!) the guesthouse clean and cozy. The dogs are first rate: friendly, disciplined and hard working. Lastly we got stuck because of the weather and Sven even drove us at short notice to the next town to catch the bus. Petter is a world champion, but our holiday was world class. Thanks to Angela, Petter, Julie and the team!!!

    Best 5 days ever
    I spent 5 best days of my life and my best birthday. Tour was supposed to be for 4 people, unfortunately all the other guests got ill and I had a private tour! Everything was perfect, lovely dogs and a beautiful landscape. Also the trip was more difficult than I expected especially on the second day, when we were going uphill in a fresh snowfall and a lot of work with the dogs but they definitely deserve the best care for the work they do. Big thank to the whole team, specially to my guide Sven.

    An amazing experience
    We had great expectations for this trip and can happily say they were all met or exceeded. It was a vacation we will never forget. The food, the equipment, the cabins, everything was well taken care off. We had Karina as our guide, who was very kind and her enthousiasme for working with the dogs was contagious. The dogs themselves are so impressive. So strong, smart and kind to humans. Everyone on their own sled, working together with their team of dogs to travel through the beautiful landscapes of Northern Sweden was an absolute dream come true. In addition, we enjoyed going back to basic a little bit. Cutting wood, getting your own water, having only candlelight and no electricity.. what an experience!

    Incredible Adventure where you get first hand experience
    We did the 5 day dog sledding tour. It was an incredible experience. I loved being able to be hands on, learning and helping with the dogs and the sleds. You learn so much in a short period of time. And the whole trip is done in the middle of a winter wonderland! Places you could only go by snowmobile or dog sled. It was peaceful and beautiful to spend hours moving through this scenery. It is an adventure as you are running a sled yourself and doing the work to take care of the dogs and set up the sled, on top of that you dive in and help warm up the cabin and get the water. I loved these parts but won’t be everyone’s desire. It is cold and you don’t have any connection to the outside world, no internet, and you light the cabins with candles. I would 100% recommend it. Karina was our guide and she was amazing. She can handle so much cold temperate with her bare hands and was extremely pleasant and taught us so many things. She answered all of our curious questions and joined us in our laughter. We left the trip wanting to do it again. Now we are gonna watch Petter compete in his upcoming race in March and cheer him on from a far!

I took this trip with my adult son and we had the most amazing experience, one we will treasure. Julie our guide was amazing and everyone we met in the wider team was super helpful. Their passion for the dogs and the sport shone through. The scenery was stunning and we can’t fault the expedition in any way, everything is carefully planned and thought through. You’re provided with all the main kit and despite harsh temperatures we were never cold. Can’t recommend the trip highly enough.

A truly incredible experience! We did a a 4-day tour with Angelina who took very good care of us and ensured we had an amazing time! We spent the day sledging, toasted sandwiches over the fire for lunch with hot chocolate, and ate delicious suppers like the 'magic moose' cooking over a fire stove. An unforgettable experience which I will cherish and remember for a long time. Thank you so much to the whole team!
