Husky Safari in the wilderness in Lapland

Hundeschlitten, Schneemobil und mehr - Wochenende

Dogsledding in Auktsjaur/Winter activities in Arvidsjaur - A unique nature experience.

Experience an authentic winter adventure in the Swedish wilderness. We will take you snowmobiling, dogsledding, ice fishing and snowshoe hiking! The Dogsledding Safari takes you through wonderful winter landscapes. The experience of being on a sled while the beautiful winter scenery gushes by and the only thing you hear is the dogs' hard and eager work, is like a balm for the soul.

The Snowmobile Safari is a truly wonderful experience. It will take you through breathtaking and stunning snowy landscapes and will include a break with some hot beverages and lunch, probably beside a warming campfire, while you take in the beautiful scenery. Snowmobiling gives you a feeling of freedom, excitement and gets the adrenaline pumping while you drive through forest, open land and over ice. It is equally suited for the more adrenaline fueled and experienced snowmobilers as it is for beginners and families with children as we adjust the route and speed for your group. The smallest can also join in the comfort of the snowmobile sled.

Experience true winter fishing where the guide takes you to the frozen lakes. The experience of the sun beaming in your face while you lay on a reindeer skin with an ice fishing rod in your hand, does something to your body and soul. It cannot be put into words and must be experienced by oneself before you will truly understand the serene feeling of ice fishing.

And join us on a wonderful hike through the winter landscape on snowshoes. Either during the day so you can take in the amazing scenery or an evening hike where you will have the chance to experience the Northern Lights far away from the city lights.

Dogsledding, Snowmobiling, Ice fishing, Snowshoe Hiking in true wilderness.


We pick you up at the airport in Arvidsjaur and drive over to the Lodge where you are accommodated in one of our wilderness furnished rooms in the Lodge or in one of our cottages in the area. We start the first day with a 2-3 hour Northern Lights snowmobile safari. Dinner is served at the Lodge and you have access to our Lounge and sauna where you can relax during the evening and prepare yourselves for tomorrow's adventure. In our shop you have the possibility to buy refreshments, snacks and a lot of wilderness equipment and souvenirs.
After you have eaten breakfast in our Wilderness Café we prepare ourselves for the next snowmobile safari (accompanied with a guide) which will last for approximately 6 hours. In the course of the day we will take a break and have lunch, probably at a hot campfire. There will of course also be warm drinks available. Once back at the Lodge dinner will be served and you will again have access to the Lounge and sauna where you can relax and discuss the day's adventures. In addition to the fireplace in the Lounge, we have also equipped all rooms with a fireplace so even here you enjoy the fire's dancing flames and warming glow.
Breakfast is again served in the Wilderness Café whereafter we continue our adventure. You will now have a choice between a full day Dogsledding Safari where you drive your own sled or a day filled with several activities; 1½-2 hours Dogsledding Safari where you sit comfortably on a sled, approximately 2 hours Ice Fishing Safari and approximately 2 hours Snowshoe Hiking Safari.
