We had an amazing time on this husky adventure. We got our warm clothes on then made our way over to the huskies. The guide showed us how to drive and off we went. Half way around the loop we stopped to change drivers. The dogs didn’t go too fast, so as a first time sled driver it was very approachable. We had a terrific time enjoying the scenery as well. We finished the loop, petted the dogs who drove us, then gathered around the fire for a warm juice and cookie. The guide (Timo?) gave us tons of information on huskies, the dog racing scene, and wildlife in Lapland. He was wonderful. Highly recommend!

Very impressive husky sled ride. The guides were all super nice and answered all the questions you had. We really enjoyed sitting together around the campfire with grilled sausages and hot juice. Unfortunately, we couldn't see the northern lights due to the heavy cloud cover.

Our party of 4 booked this combined tour early April. The weather was perfect, with fresh snow and bright blue sky. Our guide, Jordi, was very friendly and always ready to help and even sent us pictures and videos of our activities. We highly recommend this tour.

Its very nice activities. Must try at least once in your lifetime

Great experience. Good staff and everything was as expected
