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.

A totally special experience. I couldn’t recommend more highly! It is easy to find, then you get wrapped up in the necessary gear (thermal onesie etc.), have a MAGICAL ride that is made all the better by the beautiful dogs (clearly loved and well looked after). You can have sausages and warm berry tea after too. Thank you again for a thoroughly enjoyable experience!

The meeting point is approximately 45 minutes from Rovaniemi, but a van will pick you up in the city center. The place is in the middle of the forest. There are about 30 dogs who are joyful and eager to go on an adventure. It explains how to drive the sled, how to brake and turn and then off you go into the forest. My baby and I rode on the sled and had one of the girls from the dog farm ride

The experience was 10, the guides were very attentive and professional. They allowed us to take photos with the dogs once the activity was over. Afterwards, they invited us to a cabin where there was a bonfire where they made sausages and where they gave us warm blueberry juice that was very good for the -28 degrees they made us that day. Highly recommended
