    Easy transportation and great guides! Our driver (Alex) was an experienced dog sledder himself and spent time telling us about the different huskies we were sledding with. We got a lesson on driving and got to drive the sleds ourselves! The scenery was gorgeous and afterwards we huddled in a warm hut with a fire for a great Finnish snack. The best excursion we had on our whole trip.

    A great family time including my 6 year old daughter, we were all 3 in the sled that we were driving, a magnificent snowy nature. Dogs are adorable. Activity with a significant cost but it is worth it, it is this kind of excursion which for me is representative of Lapland. And thanks to the guide Lorenzo who was French which is much more pleasant to understand.

    It was a super experience, clearly recommended. Expensive but good. I was glad I had taken this 10km husky ride, it was great to be allowed to ride with the dogs. They loved it and so did we. The guides were sweet and good, they took a lot of pictures of us which we subsequently got. After driving with a dog sled, we could have fun in a cabin with bonfires. There was no rush or anything else. there was time to get a lot of info about the dogs and the area. Those who had the dogs were also professional and were good at informing and answering questions. Can definitely be recommended!
