    Like husky safari is really very nice. We even got to see baby huskies while we were there. The speed of the sled depends on the weather and the group. When we did the tour, there were about 10 other sleds on the road and unfortunately we were often on the brakes. Still, it was a nice trip.

    Easy transportation and great guides! Our driver (Alex) was an experienced dog sledder himself and spent time telling us about the different huskies we were sledding with. We got a lesson on driving and got to drive the sleds ourselves! The scenery was gorgeous and afterwards we huddled in a warm hut with a fire for a great Finnish snack. The best excursion we had on our whole trip.
