This means you can control the pack of huskies towing the sled. The dogs absolutely love pulling loads and running on the trail across the forests.

This is one of the best experiences I’ve tried in Rovaniemi during day time and I’m so glad that i took the chance to join. I was so nervous about the cold but the thermal clothing were surprisingly so warm. You hardly feel the cold at all and the handle of snowmobile is also heated while you ride. It was fantastic experience. Last but not least, Lennert from Wild Nordic, our guide is super nice and warm and very attentive. Considering he has to do this everyday to entertain the tourist, he still shows alot of professionalism and being attentive and guiding and taking your pictures. I feel safe being guided by him and most of all, he’s done a GREAT job. I love him and i encourage everyone to try this experience, it’s safe and super fun.

activité préférée de notre séjour, sensation incroyable d'être aux "commandes" du traîneau à travers forêts et grandes étendues enneigées, accueil chaleureux, les chiens sont hypers gentils et vifs, à refaire...

très chouette expérience dans des décors de rêves, endroit reculé et navette de transport très bien, Rennes très doux et gourmands l'ambiance dans le tipi avec le feu était super, guide au top
