Full description
Discover the dancing colors of the Northern Lights as you glide across the Lappish landscape on a husky sleigh ride. Enjoy snow-covered winter forests as you travel 5 to 10 kilometers to camp, cozy and safe atop the sled. Meet your guide at your hotel near the center of Rovaniemi and head for the charming farmhouse where you'll greet your dog sledding team. Then it's off to search for the Aurora Borealis. If conditions permit, you may even get to drive the sled yourself. The huskies will lead you to camp to enjoy a dish of hearty Lappish sausages and good company around a fire. Warm up with steaming beverages as you wait for the Northern Lights to appear. After you've had your fill of stargazing and dazzling light displays, your trusty huskie team and your guide will take you back to the hotel so you can rest up for tomorrow's adventures.

    Amazing trip, our guide Raymond was friendly and knowledgeable about the lights, the area and the huskies. Didn’t see the lights unfortunately but the bbq on the frozen lake was great. Now the best but the husky sleigh ride was fantastic, we mushed !! Our own sleighs through the forest and got to pet the dogs after, a truly amazing experience.

    We didn't manage to see aurora but the ride with the huskies was great! We were actually more thrilled with the dogs rather than the sky. The trip was good organized and our guide Paul was great! He was very friendly and gave us many information about the wild life, natives and the land in general. Also the people that take care of the huskies were friendly and gave us the feeling that really care about the dogs and treat them as their family
