Few experiences can take you closer to the soul of the wild and the beauty of nature in winter than a trip out with a team of dogs. The dogs move fast, taking you out on an action-packed journey through forests, over mountains, past bogs and across frozen lakes. The silence, the crisp, clear winter sky and the barking of the dogs will be your companions as you travel. And if you're lucky, you'll see reindeer, foxes and roe deer as you whizz by.
There are lots of dog sledding organisers in Västerbotten in Lapland; they can help you to find the ultimate experience. Head out as a passenger on a day trip, or why not embark upon a week out sledding, controlling your own team of dogs?
