Dogsledding tours Luleå

Dogsledding tours Luleå

Have you ever heard of the Husky dogs’ call? Dogsledding is a must-do activity for any traveler, but especially for dog lovers or those wanting to get a real Swedish experience. Originally used as a mode of transportation by the native and Inuit people in the northern areas. This practice was also appealing to polar adventurers in quest of the poles.

Each tour begins by spending time meeting and getting to know the team of Alaskan huskies that will take you into the wilderness. Challenge yourself to remember the dogs’ name – each one has a special role to play to maintain the team operating as one! The mushers will show you how the dogs live, and how much they love to run! Once on the trail, drive your own dog team or wrap yourself in blankets and relax as your experienced musher guides your team through Swedish Lapland. Then, let your eager and powerful dog team lead you into the stunning surroundings.

A lifetime experience!

Live the dream of feeling the strength of the dogs pulling the sled at high speed in the snow-covered terrain. Listening to the sound of the snow crunching under the sled and the paws of your new furry sidekicks.

Dogsledding is undoubtedly a synonym for great winter adventure and will give you a thrill never to be forgotten!

The dog sled tours in Luleå are operated by small family businesses. The owners are passionate about their dogs, the quality of the experience and this results in extremely high-quality tours.

We are offering short dogsledding tours, half-day dogsledding tours and evening dog sled tours to chase the Northern Lights!

You can save and easily book your dogsledding tour on our website. Do you prefer personal contact? Then contact us and based on group size and your wishes we will help you in achieving a unique memorable experience.

Welcome to Luleå, Swedish Lapland!

Luleå Ice Track – Dutch speed skater Kjeld Nuis reaches 93 km/h

Luleå Kjeld Nuis

Wednesday, 28 March 2018- Luleå Ice track. Having won two Olympic Gold medals in both 1000 and 1500 metres in South Korea, conditions were ideal for the Dutch speedskater Kjeld Nuis to reach high speeds in Luleå – Swedish Lapland. Setting a new world record as fastest man on ice! Luleå Travel was part in this project with accommodating everybody involved in two of our traditional Tipi tents on the ice, during daytime. The smallest tent as private hideout for Kjeld Nuis and the biggest tent – Stratus 72 as working, eating and lounge area for up to 40 persons crew. It has been a great project to be involved and it’s good to see that the Luleå ice track is used in so many ways during the winter season!

Icebreaker tours Luleå – Swedish Lapland

Activities Luleå – Swedish Lapland

An unique experience while visiting Swedish Lapland is to join a tour on board of a icebreaker operating in the Bothnian Bay. The icebreaker is a unique vessel. Unlike other ships, the icebreaker has a specially designed reinforced hull to withstand the pressure of the ice, an ice-clearing shape to cut a channel through the frozen waters, and the great power to push through sea ice. In the beginning of winter ice is not more than 30-50 cm thick, but by April it could reach up to 2 meter.

During 3 hours you will be a witness of a massive ice breaking power of the vessel, have a guided tour all the way down to the engine rooms and all way up to Captain’s bridge. You can relax in the cozy saloon, enjoying warm juice or go for walk on the frozen sea ice during the stop.  The icebreaker makes a pool free of ice and every visitor can take a swim in the dark icy water in flotation survival suit. You can choose between two different icebreakers, different in size, price and location.

Between December and April there will be daily departures, you can book online or call for more information +46(0)70 6666 805
