With this husky safari you will have the opportunity to drive your own team of huskies through beautiful wintry forests and along the shores of the Raudanjoki river by the Wilderness Resort.

When you arrive to the husky camp at the Wilderness Resort you will first be shown how to control the husky sled.

You will drive your own husky team for approximately 5 km (20 – 30 minutes duration) depending on the weather, with an opportunity to stop halfway through to change drivers. This tour is a great taste of the world of dog sledding.

After your ride with the huskies we will have lots of opportunities for photos and petting the friendly dogs. Our guide will also explain more about the huskies and their lifestyle, while enjoying hot berry juice and cookies by the warm fire in a Lappish teepee.

Two adults and up to two children share one husky sled.
