Itinerary
Meet your guide for a pickup at the tour office in central Rovaniemi or one of the selected Rovaniemi hotels for a 9:30 am, 11:30 am or 2:00 pm departure (depending on your preference). Then, pull on your warm winter layers, and head onward into the Finnish countryside to a local husky farm to begin your tour.

On arrival, meet the huskies and watch as your guides train them up to their sleigh. Then, hold tight as the powerful dogs charge into the snowy forests. During your 1 hour husky safari, enjoy sweeping views over Finland’s open countryside, and stop to take photos along the way.

Explore winding trails up to 10 kilometers in length, then transfer back to base for the return journey to your Rovaniemi hotel. Arrive back at approximately 11:30 am 1:30 pm or 4:00 pm (depending on tour time chosen).

Overview
Speed through the snow pulled by huskies on this 3-hour husky-sled experience from Rovaniemi. Hear the barks of the huskies as you approach a husky farm, and receive instructions for steering a sled. Then, enjoy the thrill and silence as your sled races around snowy plains and woodlands, drawn by the dogs. Stop for photos en route and after your approximate 2-hour ride, refuel with hot drinks at the farm. Your ride is based on two people per husky team, with the opportunity to take turns steering and riding.

Thank you for taking time to review our services. You are correct when it comes to keeping your hands warm. It's demanding in these conditions when the temperature might drop down to -30 some days. When driving with husky sleighs, there are no hand warmers...More
