What You'll Do

Lead your own husky team like a local through the beautiful winter landscapes of Lapland and live a thrilling experience of the Arctic!

After being picked up and given warm clothing, your guide will drive you to a very lovely husky farm located 30 minutes drive away from Rovaniemi. As soon as you get out of the city, you will already begin to enjoy the magical snowy forests and surrounding landscapes.

At the farm, you will be welcomed by the mushers, who lead the husky sleighs, and the excited barking of their lovely dogs. You will be introduced to your dog team and be given the safety instructions and some tips how to drive the sleigh. Once ready, you will embark for a great sleigh ride adventure through the winter scenery for about 10 km (around 1 hour depending on the snow conditions). It’s always a maximum of 2 adults for the sleigh ride (one driving, and one passenger sitting in the sleigh). You will have the possibility to switch the driver and passenger halfway.

After the safari, the mushers will take time to share their lifestyle, explain you what the job of a musher consists of, how they train their dogs and answer all your questions around an open fire. All the dogs are very photo enthusiasts, so don’t forget to bring your camera with you!

The group is limited to 8 people, so that all our customers have the best experience as possible. This way, your guide will know you better and will be able to address all your needs and answer your questions. We also strictly select our partners based on ethical and responsible principles, to promote a more authentic and respectful tourism in Lapland.

After serving in the Royal Marine Commando's for 5 years and working as a professional sailing & outdoor instructor, I was looking for a place to fulfill my vision and dreams. I found it here in the Finnish Lapland, where I can share the natural phenomena, opportunities, and beauty this amazing place has to offer. Lapland is also a great place for me to raise my family. Local nature connects people as you can share beautiful moments with strangers in very peaceful environments. Winters here are long, and without doubt this is the hardest job I have ever done. But I love it and I can promise the warmest of welcomes and an amazing time!
