  • Day 1: Arrival to Kiruna & Midnight Sun Cruise

    On arrival to Kiruna you will be greeted by a local representative and transferred to your hotel in central Kiruna. After settling in, you can take some time to relax or explore your surroundings a bit. 

    Late in the evening, you will embark on a midnight sun cruise on the Torne River. With the unstoppable sunlight of the midnight sun, this is a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful nature of Swedish Lapland. Along the way, the boat makes a brief stop at a small island where the guide will serve sandwiches and coffee or tea by an open fire in a wooden hut. What a wonderful way to celebrate your first evening!

  • Day 2: Meet the Huskies

    After enjoying a hearty Swedish breakfast, you will be picked up at your hotel and taken to a husky kennel where you will meet some hard-working huskies and learn more about these amazing animals and how they are trained. You will also get a firsthand experience of what it´s like to be a "musher" with an exciting dog sledding tour on wheels when 2 persons share one ATV pulled by 10-12 dogs. During the tour we will also make a break to enjoy some coffee and sandwiches and if you are lucky there might even be some adorable puppies back at the kennel.

    *It may occur that we cancel the part of ATV/husky ride with short notice when it is too warm for the dogs. Driver’s license is required to steer the ATV and the minimum age for children to participate is 10 years.
