2 hrs husky program by car (20 min husky ride)
Daily departure at 11:00

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.
