Full description
After being picked up, make your way to Apukka where your experience begins. Once there, meet your beautiful huskies who are eager to take you on an unforgettable ride. Begin your experience crossing snowy forests and wintry lakes, driving your own sledge and receiving the basic knowledge on how to work together with the dogs as a team. Mush through the wilderness, before returning to a traditional Lappish hut to grill some sausages and sip on warm juice by an open fire.

    The guide was really nice and told us all about his dogs and his lifestile. Unfortunately we did not see the northern lights but we drove the sledges for 10km on a fozen lake and had some good sausages and tea around the fire. And we got to see the husky puppies overall it was an amazing experience that I will definitely recommend

    It was a once in a lifetime experience and we would definitely do it again! Our guide Timo was very attentive and told us sooo much about the huskies and Finland - we were really excited! The shuttle was very punctual, the driver friendly and she was kind enough to drop us off at our hotel!

    The experience was brilliant!! The staff from Apuka was excellent with a lot scale of professionalism!! As much as regards the transportation we have a complain about “Get Your Ride” company. Because we ask them in chat conversation from the app, if it’s possible to pick up us from our hotel near to Santa Claus Village and they reply as (after a conversation with Apuka transport agents) that this service is not possible and we have to go to the meeting point in the Rovaniemi city. Although we take a taxi (30€) to the meeting point and when the van pick up us, we found out that the route to Apuka Resort passes in front of our Hotel. Then after with conversation with the driver , she told us that they could pick up us from our hotel, as they did with the other passengers. Try to make contact with the company of your activity and not with the “Get Your Ride” people.
