A little bit


Welcome to our slice of paradise! We, Johan and Sara, founded Explore the North in 2005 after years of dreaming. When setting out on this journey, we looked no further than Johan’s childhood home: Kangos. Towering pine forests, lakes, and rivers make the area around Kangos wild and beautiful. We want to show you what makes our part of Lapland so special and magical.  ​​​​​​​

Today, we have several facilities in the Torne valley. We ourselves are no longer the ones who manage the day-to-day operations. That's where our warm and competent staff comes in. Together, we show that it is entirely possible to create and run a hotel with associated activities in the countryside in northernmost Sweden. We invite you to visit us and experience Swedish Lapland. Join our friendly and warm-hearted staff in small tour groups to experience all Sweden’s nature has to offer. We want every guest to have a unique trip of a lifetime. Beyond our amazing staff and the breathtaking wilderness, the heart of the company has always been our huskies. We have over 200 dogs working at Explore the North. They are all unique with different characters. Still with one thing in common, they love the guests the same way we all do. To us, you come as a guest, and you leave as a friend. Welcome to Lapland!
