Highlights
  • Meet some beautiful and friendly huskies
  • Enjoy a husky sled ride through wintery scenery
  • Be the musher and drive your own sled
Full description
Meet and mush with your new howling, furry friends on this safari adventure. Huskies are one of the most beloved animals of the North, and you’ll understand why as soon as you meet the pack. Pet them, pose with them for photos, and listen to stories about their lives.   Then, take a 5- to 10-kilometer long husky sled ride, where you get to be the musher yourself. This means you can control the pack of huskies towing the sled. The dogs absolutely love pulling loads and running on the trail across the forests. Feel the thrill of the ride and the cool wind on your face as you tear through the forests.   Finish off with a hot drink before saying goodbye to your new friends.

    It was a super fun experience. The pick up was smooth. In Finland they are of the times. After this to the head office where we got warm clothes. From here we walked to the dogs who got all excited. Then a sleigh ride. Half way through a stop to switch drivers. Then back. We got a warm drink with a biscuit. We had time to cuddle with the huskies and puppies. After the tour we took another sled ride up a hill on the property, very nice! We also took a nice photo by the lake.

    The husky ride, and cuddling the animals afterwards, was one of the highlights of our kids for this vacation. The ride takes 20-30min, feels short when you are on it, but the experience is better I guess then a 1000m ride on the sledge. The guide was very detailed in explaining how to ride, and giving further information on the animals. I gave a lower rate on the value for money, we paid 575 euro for our family with 3 kids. We were all on 1 sledge, 1 driver and 4 sitting, the price for the kids (99 per child), for just sitting on the sledge, is quite steep in my opinion. But that is in general the case in Rovaniemi, which can make it a relative expensive vacation for a family of 5. That being said, this is certainly an activity one should do when being in Rovaniemi

    Really well organised, the huskies were incredible and the team really good. The noise of the dogs and their excitement was great to see. Nice long run with the dogs, beautiful scenery. It can get cold for those in the sled, but it was -22..and we had a 4 and 9 year old - warmed up in the tent around the fire soon enough. Thank you from us all.
