Rovaniemi: Apukka Husky Adventure

1. Rovaniemi: Apukka Husky Adventure

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 7- 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.

Just as our ancestors once did, travel on a reindeer sleigh through the untouched wilderness.  Meet your guide and hop on board your sleigh to adventure through Finnish nature. Immerse yourself in the Lappish lifestyle as you glide through the snow. As you see the glow of the bonfire from a remote lavvu, you'll know it's time to stop for a hot drink over some fascinating stories from the reindeer herders.  If lucky, perhaps the Northern Lights will escort your way through the magical plains of Lapland.

We had an excellent time on the tour. My mum fell back and off the sled when the huskies took off and left my brother being pulled by the dogs alone in the sled. The staff were amazing, snow mobiling up to & stopping the run away sled then making sure my mum was ok. Thinking back it was very comical (hilarious) but on a serious note the staff were fast acting and brilliant. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour - do it! The dogs seem well looked after and the staff are very fond of them, which was important to me.

Barbara was wonderful. He searched for us the aurora in several places without getting tired and without being discouraged. Thanks to his perseverance we finally found our Northern Lights. The photos arrived promptly the next morning. The clothing was also very comfortable and warm.

Det var nesten 2 timer kø for å komme inn. Møt opp tidlig.

Those huskies were the cutest, very nice activity with a hot juice and some nice information. After the amazing ride we could cuddle them and even see their puppies! Just amazing day

Ήταν πολύ οργανωμένα. Μας πρόσφεραν τα κατάλληλα ρούχα για τις δραστηριότητες. Ήταν φιλόξενοι και μας πρόσφεραν μία πολύ όμορφη εμπειρία.

Just a great experience! The driving is awesome, the dogs are wonderful and the guides are great! Thanks for this unique experience!!!!
