Welcome to Kiruna Sleddog Tours

We are an outdoor company which provides sleddog tours, snowmobile tours and fishing trips in the north of Europe and the arctic landscape. Our kennel is located in Kiruna (Sweden) 300 km north of the Polar Circle. We offer personal and private sled dog activities, from kennel visits to 2-3 hours tours, and to more demanding expedition tours. All year around.

This is also the home of multiple superstars sled dogs. Mats Pettersson, owner of Kiruna Sleddog Tours, has finished the longest and toughest sleddog races in the world, the Iditarod, 6 times before (2014-2019). And each year he competes, 14 of his racing dogs are selected to be part of his team in Alaska for a 1000 miles long race.
