Today, you will be visiting a husky farm where you will learn all about huskies and just how important they are to the Finnish people. You will start the day with breakfast again before being taken to the husky farm.
A local will guide you around the farm, where you will learn all about huskies and how to use them to pull a sledge as well as hearing some stories about the dogs. Following this, you will embark on a 10km husky ride where you can use the mushing skills you would have learnt to guide the dogs. These beautiful, energetic dogs will take you on a tour of the incredible landscape and you’ll get to spend time interacting with these affectionate animals.
You will then return to the hotel where you will have dinner and have some time to relax by the fire or maybe enjoy some well earned relaxation time in the sauna.
