A half-day self-guided husky safari through the Lappish nature and visiting huskies at the kennel.

During this program, you will go on a self-guided husky safari on a 20 km track. The approximate safari time is about 2 hours. Safari time varies, as it always includes a stop-over and is dependent on the weather conditions the dogs are running in. During the stop-over, a musher and passenger can change places.


The trip by car to the husky kennel takes about 40 min from Rovaniemi city center. Upon arrival, you will get complete instructions for driving (mushing) the dog sled on your own and then immediately start the safari. The kennel is located by beautiful Ylinampa lake which is surrounded by hills.


The trail runs around the coastline. It is easy to drive, but very beautiful. The area is uninhabited (by humans), so we have a good chance to see wild animals and tracks. After the ride, your host will welcome you inside a cozy teepee where they can warm up around the open fire and have a hot drink.


The host will talk about life with the dogs and answer any questions you may have. Option: You can choose to drive a single sled alone for an extra charge (supplement for s single sledge).

  1. This tour is recommended for adults. 

  2. We strongly recommend wearing warm winter clothing. 

  3. We recommend applying non-water-based winter cream for the face and covering any open skin areas. 

  4. Please take off your gloves/mittens when touching the huskies. They love to play with gloves and might tear them easily.
