Winter hunting at the foot of the bare mountain

Using snowmobiles, we travel across roadless country far out on the tundra. A lone mountain cabin awaits us. The crackling wood stove is warm, the dogs are ready. Tomorrow, there’ll be grouse hunting on snow-clad mountains. Join us for a unique hunting experience!

Day 1

Arrive in Kiruna. Transfer to Lodge Máttaráhkká for dinner and a review of hunting and safety regulations. Overnight stay at the Lodge.

Days 3–5

We mix it up with bird hunting and ice fishing for Arctic char. Weather and wind will decide whether we hunt for ptarmigan using .22 Long or .22 WM rifles, hunt for willow grouse using shotguns, or test our fishing luck in the mountain lake with its abundance of Arctic char.

Day 2

After breakfast, we drive snowmobiles to the edge of the birch forest at the foot of the bare mountain. If the snow bears us, we’ll hunt for willow grouse using shotguns over pointing dogs. In the afternoon, dinner made with local ingredients is served in the mountain cabin. We end the evening by the crackling wood-burning sauna.

Day 6

Return from the mountain. Transfer to Kiruna Airport or the train station.

  • Transfer to and from Kiruna Airport
