Ida Kohnert

Hometown: Slussfors, Vaesterbotten, SWEDEN


Ida Kohnert,14, was born and raised in Sweden. She says she began mushing at the age of four years since her parents were both mushers. A rookie in this year’s Jr. Iditarod, Ida explains that she handled for her dad during the 2016 and 2018 Yukon Quest. She says she really likes the connection between dogs and musher and to be out in nature with her best friends is the best in the world. She is in 8th grade in secondary school in Tornaby, SWEDEN, and says she enjoys hunting, fishing and outdoors. After high school she might join the family business of sleddog tours and says she definitely plans to continue mushing. Her big dream is to run the Yukon Quest in 2023.
