Man’s best friend
Exactly when humans started using dogs for pulling sleds is not known. It was probably the indigenous people of Mongolia and eastern Siberia who were first, when they had to travel long distances during winter. While there are a number of popular sled dog breeds, our mushers mainly use Alaskan huskies. Among sled dogs, Alaska Huskies are considered more compliant and more explosive than, for example, Greenland Dogs and Alaskan Malamutes, which are better suited to pull heavier loads at lower speeds.
To go on a dog sled ride is an amazing way to discover the arctic winter and nature. You get the possibility to help out putting the dogs in front of the sled at the start of the tour. While you are out there will be an opportunity to step of the sled, enjoy nature and take some memorable pictures.
Depending on the weather conditions our dogsled tours take place either in the surroundings around Björkliden or near the National Park in Abisko. You won’t come closer to nature than this. This activity is suited to all ages and no physical fitness is needed. If you haven’t tried Dogsledding before, this is your chance. Book now!
