Dog Sledding in Finland can be traced back not just hundreds, but thousands of years back.

On this visit you will meet real life mushers who will share their knowledge and secrets about their fascinating way of life and how they take care of their beloved companions.. In addition to this, you will also get a chance to play around with the dogs and enjoy their lively company.
And that’s not all - you also have the unique opportunity to lead your own pack of huskies through an amazing winter scenery. Sense the power of the dogs and their team working skills as they pull you through the breathtaking white landscapes at an unimaginable pace. Needless to say, driving your own dogsled is a truly invigorating experience. The activity is suitable for the whole family to enjoy and all instructions will be given to you before you hit the snowy trails with your own howling pack. If taking a hold on the sleigh feels a bit intimidating, it is also possible to get off the reins and sit comfortably on the passenger's seat taking in the serene snowy surroundings . These thrilling tours can be anywhere from 2km to longer 10km long trails and even multi-day trips for the more extreme adventure seekers.
