          Our Lapland is also Your Lapland

          “When you understand what Our Lapland is like, you won’t want to leave.”

          Our calendar is the Torne River
          When does the ice break? Is it already flooding? Is the salmon coming? Is the river already frozen?

          Our clock is the sun
          During the polar night the sun is barely rises, so why not stay in and take it easy. In summer there is light, night and day. So much time and so many nice things to do! Still, let’s take it easy. Have a seat, we’ll have a coffee and a chat.

          Take a moment to feel the rhythm of light and nature.

          Come along!

          The river runs hundreds of kilometres from the Torne Lake in northern Sweden to the far end of the Bay of Bothnia. The area of Original Lapland is vast and the distances may be long, however, the road network and connections cover the area well and getting from place to place is no problem.

Husky Sledding Experience in Kilpisjärvi

Meet the Kilpisjärvi Husky Team! Siberian huskies are friendly and they just adore pulling a sled – that’s their hobby and that’s their work!

You and your party can now learn how to be a ”musher”. Meet your guide Martti, the owner of the husky team, on the lake shore. Martti will teach you how to control the sled – and before you know it you’ll be off, “mushing” the husky team, heading towards the Swedish shore. The others in your party will follow you by snowmobile, seated comfortably in the snowmobile passenger sled while the guide drives. As a musher you are on your own with the huskies, each person in your party taking his or her turn as the musher. A youngster can be seated in the husky sled while the parent drives.

At the turn-around point a break is taken and you’ll have a chance to get acquainted with each husky – they are so eager at the start that longer introductions may not have been possible. A hot berry juice is served during the break. The ride itself lasts approximately one hour and 1 – 4 persons can be accommodated at a time.
