We who run Luleå Adventure are called Mauro Marchesoni and Anki Andersson. Together with our employees and our dogs, we welcome you.
Mauro originally comes from Trento in northern Italy, moved to Sweden in 1994, and settled here in Luleå. He has always had an interest in dogs. But the interest in sled dogs grew when his daughter wanted a dog. the first dog was Laika which was a mix between Alaskan Husky and Malamut. Over the years the herd grew larger and was expanded with several Siberian Huskies and the idea of a tourist company was raised.
Anki is from Gammelstad/Luleå. Have always been interested in dogs and have had many different breeds over the years. Since I met Mauro, the Siberian Husky has been close to my heart.
We have a few different dog sled tours to offer. Partly different tours during the day and also dog sled tours in the evening, which can be an exciting alternative. Our tours are adapted both for families with children of different ages and for more adventurous souls. Our motto is flexibility. We can also offer transfers from your hotel. It is also possible to book a wood-fired sauna.
When we have connected the dogs in the team, they are very eager to get going and there is a lot of barking and glaring. In order to reduce the stress level of the dogs, it is important that you are quick to get into place in the sled. When the Guide shouts GO, the dogs explode and rush off at great speed. After a couple of kilometres, the dogs calm down and start trotting at a reasonable pace. The guide gives commands to the dogs, who tirelessly run through the forest, over open fells and streams.

After half way we stop and let the dogs recover and at the same time there is an opportunity to take photos. Then the journey continues home again. Once back, we are helped to harness the dogs and let them into the kennels.
The company Luleå Adventure was founded in 2006 and was initially run as a hobby company on the side of work for Luleå Municipality. Since 2016, the company has been run full-time
Our company is located between Ale and Selet, which are two small villages approx. 40 km southwest of Central Luleå. Ale is an old village with a long history. A mill from the middle of the 17th century has been preserved and in the summer it is used as a café. In Selet, an old iron mill from the 18th century has been preserved, which is now part of a nature reserve.
New kennels were built during the summer and more dogs were purchased. The barbecue and sauna area were built during the autumn. In late autumn, we got 6 new cute sibling puppies. During the winter of 2017, we received a lot of tourists from different parts of the world. We offer a family experience close to Norrland's nature. You who come to us get to meet our happy and talented dogs.
