In short

More information about this holiday

Your cabin is located on the edge of the forest, close to a frozen lake and right next to our husky farm. You will be the only guests staying here, and there are no other cabins – truly a private winter holiday!

On arrival day, as well as on the last night we will cook your dinner over a fire in our traditional “kåta” log hut. We will also cook a meal together on our overnight tour with the huskies. On 3 nights, we will give you the ingredients and recipe to cook your own dinner in the kitchen of your cabin. This is all typical local food, and the recipes are fool proof. We do have some tasty vegetarian options as well!

We will provide you with breakfast and lunch. During the dog sledding tours, we will make a simple lunch over a fire. On the other days, lunches consist of sandwiches and a thermos, that you can take along if you are out snowshoeing – or you can just eat lunch at home in the cabin.

You will drive your own (shared) sled on 3 days. During the first day tour, there might be other guests joining for that day (max 6 guests on the tour). During the two-day overnight tour, you will be on your own with the guide. You will sleep in a cosy wilderness cabin that night.

The three days of dogsledding are guided, the other two days you will go out by yourself.

You can go snowshoeing through the forest over prepared and marked trails of 5, 8 and 10 km, starting right from your doorstep. We provide you with snowshoes.

The wood stove heated sauna is right next to your cabin, and you will have it all to yourself on 3 nights! We will provide you with exclusive Care of Gerd shampoo and soap, locally made with natural ingredients and 100% plastic free.

Day to day

Sunday: Arrival around lunch time; we will welcome you around the fire with a hot drink! You can use this day to acclimatize. A popular activity is to take a short hike to the lake right behind your cabin. In the evening we will eat dinner with you around the fire in our traditional “kåta” log hut.

Monday: Today you will meet our huskies! We will go out for an introduction tour with the dog sleds. In the evening you will prepare your own dinner and then enjoy a nice wood stove heated sauna!

Tuesday: Today is a good day for a snowshoe hike! Choose between different routes of 5, 8 and 10 km. Or choose to just relax in the comfortable log cabin. In the evening you will prepare your own dinner. Possibility for sauna.

Wednesday:  We will head out for a two-day sled dog tour. This is a private tour with no other guests. We will eat lunch around a fire and sleep in a wilderness cabin. You will take part in taking care of the dogs. We will get our water from the frozen lake. Hopefully we will see some northern lights from this beautiful place in the forest!

Thursday: After breakfast we will continue our husky tour. We will stop for lunch on an island, where will try our luck with ice fishing! After coming back from the tour, you will cook your own dinner and then enjoy a nice sauna!

Friday: Today you can make another snowshoe hike! Or you could visit Jokkmokk, the cultural heart of Swedish Lapland. If you plan to take the night train back, you will leave in the evening, after another nice dinner around the fire in our traditional kata (log hut) ! If you leave by bus to Luelå, you will sleep one more night in your log cabin.

Saturday: The bus to Luleå departs after breakfast at 08:20 hrs. The bus tour to Luleå is in a comfortable couch with a good view on the forest around you.
