    Really long journey to the husky farm. Started my day at 7:50 am, returned to hotel at 1 pm. I was famished by the end of the tour. Guide was nice enough, Gun and he will be a good guide with practice. Meeting the dogs and having the experience was worth it. I would go again, just keep in mind how long the tour can take. (2 hours driving time minimum)

    When arrived the dog owners were expecting us very friendly help us better understand what we was about to experience and what to expect from the dogs that were really anxious to start the journey. The tour guide delivered a great experience and was knowledgeable and friendly. A must recommend!!!

    It was a very interesting experience to see how each individual dog is treated according to his personality. Especially when a potential lead dog wants to chase a reindeer in between. In any case, the tour aroused our interest in repeating it in winter. Unfortunately, the journey from Rovaniemi is a bit far, especially if you drove almost directly past the dog farm the day before. With advance information there is still an optimization option to avoid unnecessary driving back and forth.
