Welcome

Welcome to Tobacco Trail, a long distance sleddog race in the far north of Sweden. The origin of the race goes back to when two warm hearts wanted to share one cold place; sled dog professionals and enthusiasts Birgitta Fernstrom and Taisto Thorneus saw the potential of a race in their home town of Kiruna (famed for its Iron Mine) and Saivomoutka at the Finnish border. For locals, this path is best known for its use during WWII when smugglers would transport tobacco and other contraband goods between the borders, so it’s not hard to see how the race got its name “Tobacco Trail”.

These days, the race focuses around the town of Lannavaara and offers a fun, exciting and friendly competition for all mushers in the following categories:

  • 150km (approx.) for Limited Class (6-8 dogs)
  • 300km (approx.) for Limited Class (8 dogs)
  • 300km (approx.) for Open Class (12-14 dogs)

🐕 RACE NEWS 🐕

At tonight's committee meeting it was decided to cap the number of race participants to 30.This is due to Covid restrictions that we are constantly reviewing.
We will inform the Tobacco Trail Community once this cap has been reached and registration will then be closed for the 2021 race.
We already have close to 30 participants signed up so sign up quickly if you want to take part. A waiting list will be made of those that sign up from no. 31 onward.
If you have already signed up and know that you will not make it to the race, please let us know so that someone on the waiting list can take your place!
Thank you!
