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.

    Such an excellent experience! On arrival, you kit up into overalls, boots, extra gloves and socks; these are definitely need as it's a very cold activity. Then out to the huskies and a briefing. It was certainly an amazing experience to be the musher and the passenger. After we got to fuss the dogs which was wonderful after they worked so hard. Hot tea and information about the dogs was provided by the excellent guide (sorry forgot his name) We even got a chance to cuddle some puppies.

    Probably the best activity during our stay in Rovaniemi and we did a few. We went to another husky activity the day before and enjoyed it so much that we wanted to meet more huskies. The Apukka husky ride lets you ride the sled yourself and it's once in a lifetime experience. The dogs are very friendly and so happy when they start running. It was a great day and we got to meet some of the puppies too.

    This (and seeing the Northern Lights) was the highlight of my partners and my trip to Rovaniemi. The doggos were very happy and super friendly, and seemed loved and greatly cared for. The ride itself was fast, exciting and very enjoyable! 10/10 would recommend!
