Riverlodge Huskys

Riverlodge Huskys is located at the eastern end of Åresjön – ”Lake Åre”. Here, at the Lodge right by the lake, you start your tour on the snowcovered ice and then quietly travel by sled with the spectacular view of the mountain Åreskutan. All tours are private, it´s just you and your group. If you are a larger group we divide ourselves into smaller teams and take turns sledding and enjoying the campfire. All you need is available to borrow at the Lodge; downparkas, skigoggles and warm boots. Of course there is always time to visit the dog farm and enjoy the company of our beloved huskys. You are most welcome to help out harnessing the dogs and sneak in a cuddle with them before the tour. For us, the moments around the campfire are almost as important as the sledding itself. In our wooden tipi we sit on our sheepskin and enjoy the heat of the fire while enjoying a coffee, tea and swedish fika (cakes and buns). And of course roasting marshmallows over the fire. If the sun is shining we´ll take the ”fika” outside.
