Rovaniemi: Apukka Husky Adventure

1. Rovaniemi: Apukka Husky Adventure

Meet and mush with your new howling, furry friends on this safari adventure. Huskies are one of the most beloved animals of the North, and you’ll understand why as soon as you meet the pack. Pet them, pose with them for photos, and listen to stories about their lives.   Then, take a 5- to 10-kilometer long husky sled ride, where you get to be the musher yourself. This means you can control the pack of huskies towing the sled. The dogs absolutely love pulling loads and running on the trail across the forests. Feel the thrill of the ride and the cool wind on your face as you tear through the forests.   Finish off with a hot drink before saying goodbye to your new friends.

Rovaniemi: Apukka Aurora Husky Tour

2. Rovaniemi: Apukka Aurora Husky Tour

After being picked up, make your way to Apukka where your experience begins. Once there, meet your beautiful huskies who are eager to take you on an unforgettable ride. Begin your experience crossing snowy forests and wintry lakes, driving your own sledge and receiving the basic knowledge on how to work together with the dogs as a team. Mush through the wilderness, before returning to a traditional Lappish hut to grill some sausages and sip on warm juice by an open fire. The chance to see the Northern Lights get better and better as midnight approaches, and with a bit of luck you can share this special moment with your new furry friends. At the conclusion of your experience, you'll make your trip back to Rovaniemi.

Rovaniemi: Apukka Reindeer Sleigh Safari at Night

3. Rovaniemi: Apukka Reindeer Sleigh Safari at Night

Just as our ancestors once did, travel on a reindeer sleigh through the untouched wilderness.  Meet your guide and hop on board your sleigh to adventure through Finnish nature. Immerse yourself in the Lappish lifestyle as you glide through the snow. As you see the glow of the bonfire from a remote lavvu, you'll know it's time to stop for a hot drink over some fascinating stories from the reindeer herders.  If lucky, perhaps the Northern Lights will escort your way through the magical plains of Lapland.

The experience with these beautiful creatures in an equally beautiful natural setting absolutely lived up to expectations. Driving a team of six Huskies, thanking them and playing with them afterwards is one of the things that remain in your heart. The village of Apukka and the resort also seem to come out of fairy tales! AND

It was a great family experience. I recommend taking this activity to be able to enjoy the dogs and take a real one-hour tour with them. There were two of us per sled and everyone could drive in turn. Unmissable activity.

I can recommend this tour. the staff was attentive and organised, friendly and they explain and answer questions. the tour was very enjoyable.

really good excursion but no one to tell you what to do when. you get there.

A fantastic experience. Gorgeous scenery and a thorough sledding experience
