Located away from Rovaniemi, in the middle of Lapland wilderness, this familiy-sized kennel will offer you a unique experience in pure snowy landscapes.
After being picked up and given warm clothes, you will be transported to the kennel in the forests. Dogs and mushers will warmly welcome you. You will also be given driving instructions and be introduced to your own dog team.
Once ready, you will embark for a great 6-10km sleigh adventure! The safari lasts around 30 – 50 min (depending on the snow conditions and the speed mood of the dogs). You are usually two per sleigh (one passenger and one driver) and you can switch half-way: this way you can enjoy a complete experience during the safari!
After the safari, you can spend time with the dogs: they love cuddles and photos! Mushers will also be happy to answer your questions around a warming open fire.
About your dogteams : most of the sledding dogs in Lapland are Alaskan huskies, a mixed breed which is very performant in racing. Those friendly well-trained dogs love running, they even need it for their well-being. They will definitely be super excited to run with you! However, please note that the big fluffy Siberian huskies are not so good runners, therefore they are not traditionnally part of sledding dog teams (except in movies!).
