Dog sledding

Dog sledding is one of the most popular activities of the location. You can choose to drive your own sledge for a 20-minute to overnight trips, depending on your plans. Some of the resorts have partnered with Swedish adventure companies to provide their guests with a mesmeric journey through the Swedish fells over the border and back. This can prove to be an experience of a lifetime for your whole family. The dog breeds include Alaskan and Siberian husky and are well-trained for the job. It will be hard for you not to fall in love with their friendliness and commitment.

Sleigh Rides

Swimming and Flow riding

There is an indoor water park at the resort, which consists of a large main pool with currents, deep pool, 2 children pools and a Jacuzzi. Starting off your morning with a swim and a classical view out of the glass windows would get you warmed up nicely for the skiing runs later in the day.
