Know More about this tourDress up in warm layers and start your family adventure with a pickup from Rovaniemi. Board your car or minivan with your guide and enjoy the views as you travel through the frozen Arctic countryside to a local husky farm.
When you arrive, hear the friendly huskies barking an eager welcome. Gather round to meet the beautiful dogs as they wait enthusiastically with your sleds.
Before heading off, listen to a safety briefing from an expert musher (people who drive or travel with a dog sled). Then, hop into your family sled or sleds, depending on how many there are of you. With the kids seated inside, adults are free to sit or drive the sleds and take turns sitting and driving. Get instructions on driving your sled, learning how to stop and slow your husky team using the brakes. Sleds are easy to drive and most people learn very quickly.
With your huskies harnessed up, take off through the snow. As the dogs pull away, hear your kids squeal with delight and feel your adrenalin rush. Admire the scenery as you race through icy fields and snowbound pine woods — it’s like riding through a Christmas card!
After a 20- to 25-minute ride, arrive back and say a reluctant goodbye to your husky team. Then, warm up with hot berry juice around the campfire. Chat to the head musher and learn about the lives of the hardworking huskies. Discover how they live for the moment when the sled brake is released, and how each has a specially designated role in the team.
Afterward, return to your car or minivan and end your tour in Rovaniemi.
