Full description
Take part in one of the best winter activities in Finland with an unforgettable 1-hour husky sled ride. Meet adorable huskies and steer your own team through the fascinating scenery of snowy Lapland. Start by receiving driving and safety instruction in the husky kennel and then take your place in the sled and to begin to steer your own husky team through the Arctic forest.  Drive for approximately 6-10 km through beautiful landscapes alongside an experienced musher who will guide the tour. Take a break in the middle to take great pictures with the cute four-legged friends. Once back in the kennel, warm up inside a traditional Kota (wood cabin) by the fire and learn more about the training and daily life of huskies as you enjoy a small Finnish barbecue that includes sausage (makkara), cookies, and hot juice.

Unforgettable experience and highlight of my trip to Finland. From start to finish tour guides where very attentive and professional, even being extra accommodating with our pick-up point . A good induction of instructions of hand signals used while driving the huskies was given beforehand, also answering any questions or uncertainties about the husky self drive ride. Activity itself was amazing and something I will never forget. Well worth paying the extra money it costs for the additional time driving the huskies compared to the other trip operators. I loved the intimacy of the trip due to the fact that there was only my family and another couple doing the husky sledge ride. After the activity the was time allowed to see the huskies close up and take pictures and ask any questions. Following this was some hot juice and sausages cooked over a coal fire served in a cosy wooden hut before being taken back to our pick-up point. Thank you Parpalandia Oy for a wonderful experience

We loved the Husky tour. It was the best tour we did. We got picked up by a very friendly and well informed guide, José, and we were so happy to have him! He answered all of our questions and told us interesting stories about the huskies and the Sami culture. The dogs were absolutely amazing and well trained. We were allowed to take pictures and to cuddle them. We would definitely recommend this tour and papparlandia.

Incredible experience !! We were greeted by Jose, the best guide ever, who enriched everything with really interesting local legends. After providing us with thermal clothing, we rode the sleigh along pristine landscapes. Dogs are gorgeous and very sweet. Upon our return, we tasted typical products around a fire. Thanks to all the staff for the amazing experience!
