Full description

Discover the dancing colors of the Northern Lights as you glide across the Lappish landscape on a husky sleigh ride. Enjoy snow-covered winter forests as you travel 5 to 10 kilometers pulled by a team of huskies. Meet your guide at your hotel near the center of Rovaniemi and head for the charming farmhouse where you'll greet your dog sledding team. Then it's off to search for the Aurora Borealis. If conditions permit, you may even get to drive the sled yourself. The huskies will lead you into a Lappish forest discover the exquisite and unique nature of the Arctic. After the ride, enjoy Lappish pork sausages and good company around a fire. Warm up with steaming beverages as you wait for the Northern Lights to appear. After you've had your fill of stargazing and dazzling light displays, your guide will take you back to the hotel so you can rest up for tomorrow's adventures.

    Highly recommend this activity. The experience is out of thr world. The tour guide ensured that we see the northern lights and took us to the swedish border to see the northern lights. The husky ride is cherry on top. Our tour guide Isaac was amazing and helped us and the kids and very supportive throughout. He is an amazing guide to experience the northern lights. He shared the history of Finland and the Rovaniemi”s attractions and history. Must do activity in Rovaniemi

    Our guide Alizé was great, very very nice, answered all of our questions and even helped to find the northern lights for the next few days after the husky sled ride. It was a lot of fun!! She was very entertaining :) Value for money, maybe a bit too expensive as you can get it a lot cheaper from other organizations. But it was still very nice, even with the campfire afterwards, you got to know super nice people.

    It was an unforgettable experience that cannot be compared to anything else. The organization of the tour was excellent. Our tour guide was Jessica and she took care of us lovingly, gave us a lot of knowledge about Lapland and the husky farm. The drive to the farm and back flew by. The process on the farm was also very nice and we were allowed to visit the puppies and growing dogs, ask questions and the tour itself was breathtaking - half an hour through the beautiful, snow-covered landscape. At the subsequent barbecue, we were attentively looked after by Jessica and had an absolutely family atmosphere. Would definitely do it again. A big thank you to Jessica for her great companionship.
