    All in all, a breathtaking experience. The team was extremely friendly and driving the sled was an incredible feeling. In the middle of nowhere, in the middle of nature, gave an incredible experience. Last but not least, there was tea, biscuits and sausages. Is it worth the price? I'm still not lanky about that. Not the best experience with small children. Afterwards we were incredibly lucky to see the Northern Lights, even if it wasn't back on the main site until the end of the tour, simply breathtaking. Would I book it again with a 5 year old. Clearly no.

    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!
