Lapland Sleddog Adventures (LSA) is a Swedish company run by husband and wife couple Gaynor Leeper and Milos Gonda. Our goal is to provide superior service in sleddog tourism, whether that’s satisfying the wishes of our guests or giving the best possible care to our dogs. We put our heart and soul into everything we do and every experience we provide so we know our guests will return home happy, whether you’ve been with us for a few hours or for a week.

The same effort goes into our kennel environment and we have recently built a brand new Lodge for our guests, an on-site sauna, and large yards for our 40 Alaskan huskies. Everything is built with the environment in mind and our kennel complex sits happily in a secluded forest approximately 15 minutes drive from Kiruna city centre. Our Lodge is a wooden structure building sympathetically finished in a rustic cabin style, it has geothermal heating which keeps it warm no matter how low the temperature outside drops, and ground source crystal-clear fresh water that can be drunk straight from the tap. Here you’ll find all the comforts of home in a pristine wilderness location.

We’re located approx. 200km within the Arctic Circle, in the northern county of Norrbotten. Kiruna is its biggest town and is well connected to the rest of the world through regular scheduled flights via Stockholm. The climate is ‘sub arctic’ resulting in short, cool summers and long, cold winters: it’s no wonder that Kiruna is often described as the Mecca for mushers! It is also described as ‘the last wilderness on earth’.

The area is also known for its ancient Sami culture. The heritage of these reindeer herders is an important part of the area’s history and on our longer tours we often connect with our Sami friend Per-Nils Paivio and his wife Britt-Marie who are happy to share their stories with our guests.

The famed Aurora Borealis occur when electrically charged particles from the sun hit the earth’s atmosphere and react with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. Each gas results in a different coloured light being omitted in wonderful displays of green, yellow, reds and pink in the night sky. They are best seen in the long dark nights of winter, in the months of November through to March, with Kiruna and nearby Abisko often being described as one of the top three places in the world to spot the Aurora.

  • Had a really nice sled dog tour! Beautiful route, scenery. They provided us with warm clothing, coffee and a snack during the tour. The dogs were so friendly, eager and like being pet and cuddled.
  • Great hosts, great lovely dog's. We wasn't lucky with the Northern lights. But I'd the sky is clear them this is probably a really good place to seeing the Northern lights.
