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.

We couldn't use a sled, but the buggy was just as fun. The husky farm was very organized. The huskies are doing really well there. They were all very sweet and absolutely trusting. They all love to be petted and cuddled. In the end, the breeder came around the corner with a little, a few weeks old, husky. And then of course the joy was raged again. All in all, this tour is worth the money, and an absolute must for every husky lover.

It was really the highlight of our visit to Rovaniemi! The guides are very nice and everything seems very professional. It was an amazing experience and we would do it again in a heartbeat! You can also stroke the dogs after sledding.
