Full description
Step into the shoes of a musher and help train huskies for the winter season. After hotel pickup, head straight to the husky farm. Meet the local mushers who will be your guides. First, receive a brief introduction and instructions on how to steer the cart. Listen as the dogs bark to show their excitement before the start of the tour. Then, climb aboard your cart, which you will share with another adult. Drive through the forest, enjoying the amazing scenery of pure Lappish nature. Halfway along the 6-km trail, take a short break to take pictures and switch drivers. Once back at the kennel, visit the Kota tent, where the mushers will answer your questions about huskies, their training, and daily life. Listen to stories and find out more about huskies by the fire with a small Finnish barbecue of makkara sausage, cookies, and hot juice. Before being taken back to your hotel, you will be able to buy a Husky driving license for you or your child.

It was really an absolute highlight! The guides were very friendly, the dogs super nice and motivated and we had a lot of fun. We booked in October and took a ride on the sledge because of the lot of snow. This husky farm is highly recommended and we would do the tour there again anytime. Thanks again to the team!
