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.

Incredible experience !! We were greeted by Jose, the best guide ever, who enriched everything with really interesting local legends. After providing us with thermal clothing, we rode the sleigh along pristine landscapes. Dogs are gorgeous and very sweet. Upon our return, we tasted typical products around a fire. Thanks to all the staff for the amazing experience!

Super nice team and great dogs! There is no time pressure and you can let everything work its magic on you. The scenic route was beautiful and it took about 50 minutes. Afterwards you have a lot of time to cuddle the dogs and to learn something about working with the dogs. Unique experience, highly recommended!

Amazing experience! Communication and pick up went smoothly, warm clothes were provided. Clear instructions before starting and then an unforgettable ride through the winter wonderland! After the ride you can pet the dogs and get hot juice and a snack. Everyone was friendly and I would highly recommend this trip!
