Happy tails

Meet the huskies and have a thrilling ride in the sledge of a husky team!

We drive to a husky farm just outside Rovaniemi, where we are greeted by the lovely huskies. They are enthusiastically yelping, as if they were asking us to mush them through the forest. The husky ride is about 20 minutes and you get a feel for the arctic lifestyle of a musher and his huskies. At the farm, you hear interesting stories and facts and get to cuddle the cute arctic sled-dogs.

Practical Information:

All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2018 – 31.3.2019, or due to prevailing weather and snow conditions. Daily Departures are operated for min 2 persons paying the adult fare (2 persons / snowmobile). Private excursions are available for min 6 persons (adult fare).

 Snowmobile safaris

Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Rave, Xtrim and Boondocker–models. We have selected this model, as they are extremely comfortable to drive and as they are gentle to the environment, they are practically smoke and smell free.
Children travel in a sledge pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. In case a child prefers to travel as a passenger of a snowmobile, he / she must be tall enough to reach the handles and treads and strong enough to hold on tight. When a child travels on the snowmobile and not in a sledge pulled by a snowmobile, adult price (2 person / snowmobile) applies. 

The snowmobiles and you as the snowmobile driver or passenger are covered by our insurance. The self-liability on damage of snowmobiles is max. 1 000 € / snowmobile. With a self-liability waiver (29 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 299 € / snowmobile. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety.

You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions. Your own jacket and shoes remain at the safari house during the tour.
