Tour description Sled dog tour 7 days:
- On the day of arrival, the participants are made familiar with the dogs and the material and there is a cozy welcome dinner by the open fire. You can then decide whether you want to spend the night in the rustic hut in beds directly by the fire or in the Swedish log cabin, which radiates a special atmosphere through the wood stove and candlelight.
- In the morning we go into the wilderness with our sled dog teams and spend the night in a wilderness hut, far away from any civilization. Everyone drives their own team of 3-4 large, powerful Alaskan Malamutes and Greenland dogs. These dogs are much larger and more powerful than the newfangled sled dogs that are mostly used for tourist touring today. You have a special charisma with a lot of personality and philanthropy. The route and the accommodation can be agreed in the group and adapted accordingly to the wishes of the guests. The camp of the wilderness lodge is about 500 meters above sea level. It is possible to reach the treeless Fjäll region at an altitude of over 1000 meters in a day's hike and enjoy a unique view of the Swedish and Norwegian mountains. On the other hand, we can go on a journey through the wild mountain valleys and look for traces of elks and wolves. There are several wilderness huts that can be approached. When deciding on the course of the tour, we naturally have to take the weather into account.
- On the third day, after a long day's hike, we reach the camp of the wilderness lodge in the evening, where we spend the night in the security of the Swedish log cabin.
- The fourth day is for relaxation. After the first part of the adventure, your reserves of strength can be replenished with a relaxing day. For example, guests can take a walk with an older Alaskan Malamute and let the calm of the Swedish winter sink in. You can also warm yourself up in the rustic wood-heated wilderness sauna.
- On the fifth day we go back into the wilderness with renewed strength. We explore a new, unknown area with our dog teams and in the evening we reach another wilderness hut.
- On the sixth day we wander through the tranquility of the Scandinavian winter landscape with our Alaskan Malamute and Greenland dogs and in the evening we reach the camp, where we end the experience around the campfire with typical Swedish food. You can also warm yourself up in the rustic wood-heated wilderness sauna.
- On the seventh day, after breakfast and saying goodbye to the dogs, it's time to leave.

During the tour we spend the night in simple mountain wooden huts, without electricity and running water / optionally also in an Indian tent heated by an oven. Before the stove provides cozy warmth, it is time to chop wood. Otherwise overnight in the wilderness lodge near Särna.
The composition of the catering is based on many years of experience and is suitable for expeditions. Petrol stoves replace the built-in kitchen. The musher knows the clear springs that are sometimes hidden under the blanket of snow. Drawing water is part of the daily work. Salmon, elk and reindeer are also on the menu.
The area is considered one of the snowiest regions in Europe. Winter comes early and says goodbye late. The clear air is very dry, so that it is less cold than in our latitudes. Most of the time it is sunny and the sky is a bright blue shade. Almost 98% of our guests said the temperatures were pleasant. 85% of those guests who were in Sweden for the first time found the winter warmer than originally expected. Very good snow conditions and a wonderful starry sky compensate for cold nights.
Für For winter activities you need good and warm clothing, preferably made of windproof and breathable materials. Ski clothing combined with thermal underwear is sufficient in most cases. Head torch, thermos flask, sunglasses and protective cream should not be missing.
