Dog sledding holidays in Lapland

Those with an adventurous spirit for something different will no doubt enjoy a once in a lifetime dog sledding experience. If your next holiday takes you to the far reaches of Sweden, Finland or Norway, a dog sledding holiday in Lapland should be on the list of things to do.

Dog sledding holidays are guided tours that take groups through the great wilderness expanses of Lapland. Participate in a one-day tour or a 4-day trip of immaculate white snowy paths through beautiful untouched trails as your holiday takes you closer with nature.

These high quality eco-tourism trips provide tonnes of guided adventure for groups between 5 and 6 guests. Tour guides ensure that all guests get a chance to drive their own team of dogs, which consists of 5 to 8 dogs in a team.

These tours capture the best of the Swedish mountains as these beautiful trained Alaskan dogs run sleds through Sarek and Padjelants National Parks. For those who are super adventurous you can enjoy an even longer guided tour across the Arctic Circle.

There is no better way to enjoy a winter holiday than to spend time rushing Alaskan dogs through pristine mountains and crisp winter trails. Dog sledding in Lapland is the perfect holiday including groups of friends, a large family with (or without) children and even the solo traveller.

Lapland is a superb area of Sweden, Norway and Finland tucked inside the Article Circle. Dog sledding holidays in Lapland provide comfortable, traditional log cabin accommodation and on some nights, a hot Swedish sauna will await.

Younger visitors in Lapland around Christmas time may even get the chance to meet the great man himself in Santa’s village.

If you are planning a trip to Lapland for dog sledding or other winter activities it’s important that you have adequate travel insurance to cover all eventualities. Remember also that Lapland is outside of the Euro zone and some of the remoter places may not accept credit cards. It’s a good idea to make sure that you have adequate foreign currency before you travel to Lapland.
