THE TEAM

Yellow Snow Husky Tours is a small dog sledding company, based in Swedish Lapland. It is owned and run by Sanne Kouwenhoven who started the company in 2018.

Sanne and the huskies are the soul of Yellow Snow Husky Tours, but they couldn’t do this without the help of other guides, handlers, interns and volunteers. We always make sure that there is a fixed and professionally trained team in Winter, but also throughout the rest of the year there are many hands helping out with the care and training of the dogs and many other projects. 

STAFF WINTER 2023 - 24

Jess:
Jess already worked as a guide at another kennel some years ago and when her favourite dogs moved to the Yellow Snow kennel she kept in touch. When we asked her to be part of the team this winter, she took a gap year from her work as a docter and drove here with her dog Ava. Jess is an extremely valuable part of the team, she shares so much love, knowledge and energy! Like everyone, Jess is an allrounder and she is guiding the shorter and the multi-day tours this year, especially the ones with our German guests.

Julia:
During her studies Julia followed an internship at Yellow Snow Husky Tours and since then she knew that she had to return for a full season to be with the dogs, to see the change in season and to learn even more. Now she is back and with her friendly smile, extremely good care for the dogs and guests and her passion for the north she is loved by all of us! Julia is an allrounder, she is guiding half day and full day husky tours and she helps out with grooming trails.

ABOUT SANNE

I was born and raised in the Netherlands, but I found my true home in Scandinavia. After several canoe trips through Sweden and a dog sledding tour in Finland I decided to leave my busy home country in 2010.

I was longing for adventure and wanted to fulfil my dreams of living close to nature and learn more about sled dogs. My love for huskies, dog sledding and nature brought me to different places in Lapland. During these years I gained a lot of experience about dog care, wilderness guiding, winter and the nature around.

May 2018 I finally settled down and made another dream come true! Have my own pack of huskies and share my passion of dog sledding with guests from all over the world.

I would love to welcome you at Yellow Snow Husky Tours and give you an experience of a lifetime.
