Lonely Planet review
Just behind the town, this is a backpacker’s delight. The small hostel has basic comfortable accommodation and a wonderful wooden sauna, but the treat is in the reasonably priced activities on offer, especially during the winter. Brothers Tomas and Andreas keep a large team of sledge dogs; one package on offer includes a night’s accommodation plus the chance to drive your own sled, pulled by dogs, for about 10km. There are also very popular week-long sled trips (around Skr8000), which include all of your meals and accommodation – you will need to book very early for these. During summer you can take mountain walks with the dogs. To find the place, follow signs from Abisko Östra to the ‘Dog Hostel’.
