Welcome to White Trails Adventures

White Trail Adventures is a young, but steadily growing company, that offers a range of outdoor activities in Kiruna, Swedish Lapland.

“Everything started in 2002 when we came to northern Sweden for the first time and started to work with sled dogs. We fell in love with these amazing animals and the beautiful landscape and after working in different places and for different tour operators, we decided in 2004 to settle in Kiruna. Another 6 years we worked for one of the oldest and biggest sleddog kennels in Kiruna, until the company was devided and we got the chance to continue with or own company as White Trail Adventures“. – Jan and Daniela, the owners of the company.

We operate in an area often descriebed as “Europe´s last wilderniss” that reaches from the huge forest areas and taiga landscape around Kiruna, to the more northern tundra areas and the mountain regions around Mt. Kebnekaise and the Abisko National Park. We prefer to work with small groups, which gives us the chance to travel with our clients along routes that are “of the beaten track”. With a diverse and comprehensive range of tours, open to individual needs and wishes, we want to make the adventure “Lapland” available for everyone. So don´t hesitate to contact us for your tailor made holiday.

Our homebase and kennel is located in Kauppinen / Kiruna, about 200 km above the arctic circle. We welcome our guests in a familiar atmosphere at our guesthouse “Mushers Lodge” from where our tours start. Along the trail beautifully situated, cozy wilderness camps, without running water or electricity, add alot to the spirit of the tours. Our professional guides have many years of experience with outdoor activities as dogsledding, snowmobiling, fishing and rafting. They are happy to guide you on a safe and enjoyable journey through Lapland´s nature and share their experience with you.

For us the passion for sleddogs, snowmobiles, fishing and hiking – simply for being outside – is not just a job. It´s a lifestyle we choose to life! Follow us on one of our tours and you will know why!

Our vision is to offer unique, nature-based experiences in “Europe’s last wilderness”, that are attractive to travellers from a broad range of backgrounds and cultures. Committing to offer a lifetime experience to our guests and the best welfare for our husky dogs, whilst leaving as little trace, disturbance and permanent impact as possible in the area we travel through, we want to insure that future generations are able to enjoy the wilderness as we do now. By using unique ways of transportation such as sleds, pulled by husky dogs, or snowmobiles, welcoming and competent guides are leading our guests through the stunning but fragile nature of Swedish Lapland. They share their knowledge about the area, traditional cultures, and lifestyles, offering an interactive, back to basic experience in which guests are constantly involved. Those who travel to us are warmly welcomed as guests, not as tourists, and we hope to inspire them through nature-based tourism to embrace sustainability. 

Meet the team


In Germany I studied sports and English. But already during my time at university I got in contact with sleddogs, when I took a 12 months-break to work in northern Sweden in 2002. Dogsledding is known to be a strongly contagious business and so also me came back to Sweden in 2004 and settled here permanently. Since then I was working for the same company year round and took care of the huskies, logistic and organsisation of our tour arrangements.
Now I´m happy to bring in all experiences made during those years into our own company, to provide unforgettable holidays for our guests


I came to Sweden in beginning of 2001 to make my first experiences with sleddogs. Before I used to work as a lumberjack and forestworker in Germany. In my first 1,5 years in Lapland, I made my first steps in the dogsledding business in several different kennels before I started to work in Kiruna permanently. Since then I was working as a guide all year round and responsible for about 70 dogs. Now I made the even bigger step to take over a part of the former company, just to continue what I´ve always enjoyed so much – beeing with my husky-buddys and share my fun with them with people who`d like to have just a good time out here


Guide / Musher

I have always been a dog girl, but I was able to experience for the first time in 2021 how fulfilling working with dogs will be for me. Working with the dogs gives me life energy even on difficult days. I have found my personal place to be at WTA where I can combine my passion for nature, dogs and people.


Guide / Musher

I came to Sweden in 2021. I felt it was time for a change, quit my job and left the Netherlands to travel North. That summer I visited WTA and immediately liked the place, dogs and people. I’ve been learning and experiencing new things daily since I started. I’ve done some outdoor courses in recent years and now gaining experience. I like traveling and all kinds of outdoor activities. Making pictures and videos is also a hobby.
