Aurora Borealis is the Latin term for what we commonly call the Northern Lights. The name has been borrowed by this family business, an operator that arranges short and long dog sled tours in Västerbotten and Lapland. As a participant, you can either drive your own team or go on a big sledge and let an experienced dog sledder do the job.
Donald Eriksson and Maria Gustavsson run Aurora Borealis Adventures. All their tours are led by professional guides with many years of experience in dog sledding.
In the traditional and charming little village of Ekorrsele in one of Sweden´s truly wildest areas, the tour operators run their own wilderness camp and guesthouse, the Aurora Borealis Adventure Camp. This Camp, which serves as a base for the business, is situated beside the unspoiled waters of the Vindelälv River, and just a few kilometers away, there are the beautiful rapids of Trollfors and Bäckafors.
Labelling Committee´s motivation (16 May 2002)
This is an operator with concern for the environment, who puts the health and care of the dogs in the first place. Qualitative thinking and efficient marketing has already given Aurora Borealis international renown, and a faithful clientele from all over Europe.
Snow, cold and northern lights are not only good for the well-known Ice Hotel, on the contrary, these can be utilised by many an operator in northern Sweden.
