    What to Expect
    Pick up is either at 12:45 from Camp Ripan hotel /Tourist information office in central Kiruna or 13:00 from Icehotel Jukkasjarvi main reception. After pick up we drive to our kennel which is approx 45 kms from Kiruna away from the touristic areas. Once at our kennel you can borrow warm gear (coverall, boots) at no extra cost. (Please note we expect you to return the gear in good order or there will be a fee!) You get a short instruction as to how to sit on the sled, how to drive the sled and how to harness a dog before heading off into the wilderness. The total distance covered is approx 18 kms. Our trail covers a varied landscape. Our trails are home made. When we get back to the kennel, you can feed your own team of dogs, unharness them and return them to their yards. We also get a chance to warm up by the fire and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with a cinnamon roll. You have the chance to ask questions to the guide and time permitting visit the rest of the kennel.  After the trip you return our gear to us and we head back to kiruna by minivan.

    This was a phenomenal experience. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I wish I could remember their names so I could mention them here. Our guide, (from Belgium), was so knowledgeable and passionate it was absolutely fascinating. The husky driving itself was a magical journey

    We went on the "self-driving" afternoon tour. Everything was very well organized, all the people from the Husky farm were very friendly and we got a lot of information about the dogs, their training, the sledges and racings! It was all very interesting!!! The sledge tour was

    The big pros: - dogs are great - driving your sled is great fun - the track is definitely an asset: varied from forest to.open spots, frozen swamps/lakes, remote. We had the chance to have a timid afternoon sun shining to extend its oranfe light on trees top. The ride was a

    Hi filipo, Firstly, thank you so much for sharing your feelings about our trip! Its very disappointing to read as i know in our conversation through whatsapp you guys had very high expectations and even brought me parmiggiano from milano!!! I take your comments to heart and although i completely respect how you experienced our tour im very stunned by the comments! All our guides are highly trained in both dog care but also in a high level of service mindedness and professionalism.. which is why i was a bit speechless to read your negative feedback! Im not quite sure what the expectation of the driver was as his responsibility is obviously to be a safe driver but naturally to corespond with our guests in a welcoming matter which im very confident he has done! He might not have been the most entertaining in answering all questions or asking as his main focus is on the road! But i am sure Theo made up for that later in the teepee and answered all questions and gave you all information about the dogs/environment/wildlife etc.whilst enjoying a cup of coffee and cinnamon roll.. In all the years we have been operating we have never had a guest with frostbite! We take the cold extremely seriously.. and give good instruction especially when colder than -20 to wear a balaklava and cover all extremeties...come on filipo.. we have a sense of humour.... -30 we were only joking about it not being very cold!! We all know its freeeziing!! This is why we also supply our warm coveralls... which im again quite surprised about when you say they were worn.. as we check our equipment daily.. plus dry our gear after every trip... which ensures that the gear stays in good condition! Any coveralls that seem to need repair are taken out of our dressing room for repair immediately.. You mention the unharnessing.. is carless and rushed? Again i dont really understand how you imagined this should be as we take lots of care of the dogs and the guests during this process..We take the time to give you the opportunity to feed all the dogs.. and once all the dogs finished their bowl we ask if you want to help unharness the dogs.. we show you how and let you know how to hold the dogs whilst you wait to return them to their yard...and you mention that the spanish lady (i guess the same one you suspected had frostbite?) hurt her finger? The guides nor i was made aware of any of this? Plus we do give clear informstion on how to hold the dogs in their collar as to prevent any injury to any fingers. When i met you after the tour and i asked how you experienced the tour you both were so happy and told me you had a great time so im a bit perplexed by your review..nonetheless Im very sorry to hear you now felt differently about the customer care side. its never nice to get negative comments but i am appreciative for your comments so we can build on your feedback and try to be better for our future customers!!

    If you are staying at the Ice hotel this is the trip to do. It is a more personal experience and you get to drive and look after the dogs. From the pick up to the drop off the experience was seamless. This was a surprise for my wife birthday and our guide (can't remember his
