Activity description

Feel at home on this husky farm visit and dog sledging experience!

Travel into the scenic white wonderland of Rovaniemi and visit a family run and operated husky farm – exploring the winter plains on a 10km sledding experience. A chance to meet the stars of the show – 18 very excitable Siberian Huskies, learn more about why they love what they do and how sledding is an integral part of Finnish culture – finishing off with a wet-nosed cuddle, of course!

Location
This activity takes place in Sierijärventie near Rovaniemi. A traditional farm and yoga retreat, this scenic location in Lapland is located on the shores of Lake Sierijärvi and neighbouring pine forest used for dog sledding.

Activity
Meet your guide at a traditional husky farm on the outskirts of Rovaniemi for this dog sledging experience. Unlike other Husky trips in the area, here you will see the real local way of life – meeting genuine husky mushers and their team of four-legged friends! A personal experience run and organised by the family themselves, the husky home has 18 working Siberian Huskies and allows you to feel part of the team – getting them ready for your ride (and even learning to drive, if you dare!). Setting out on a 10km scenic trip through the forest and frozen lake, children can sit in the safety of the sledge and wrap up warm whilst parents feel the true speed from the front! Stopping for hot grog in the heart of the Taiga, explore the wilderness on foot before you return to the farmhouse for home cooked pancakes and a few cuddles with the Huskies before you leave!

Conditions
A scenic dog sledge experience and farm visit, this excursion is suitable for young children and animal lovers alike. Operating during the Arctic winter from November-April, please dress appropriately with winter boots and warm outerwear.

Abholung hat perfekt geklappt. Wir waren zu zweit und jeder konnte einen eigenen Schlitten steuern.
