Overview

We are a small sleddog tour company with customer service and satisfaction at the heart of what we do. Run by husband and wife couple, Milos Gonda and Gaynor Leeper, we are known for our friendly dogs and rustic kennel setting in a secluded forest only 15 minutes drive from Kiruna City centre. We offer sit-on-sled and drive-your-own husky tours lasting 3 hours to one week.
