Meet the Kilpisjärvi Husky Team! Siberian huskies are friendly and they just adore pulling a sled - that's their hobby and that's their work!
You and your party can now learn how to be a ”musher”. Meet your guide Martti, the owner of the husky team, on the lakeshore. Martti will teach you how to control the sled – and before you know it you’ll be off, heading towards the Swedish shore. The others in your party will follow you by snowmobile, seated comfortably in the sledge while the guide drives. You’ll be on your own with the huskies, each person taking his or her turn as the musher. A youngster can be seated in the sledge while the parent drives.
At the turn-around point a break is taken and you’ll have a chance to get acquainted with each husky – they are so eager at the start that longer introductions may not have been possible. A hot berry juice is served during the break. The trip lasts approximately one hour, the total distance covered is nearly 10 km and 1 – 4 persons can be accommodated at a time.
Season: Private departures December 1, 2019 – April 30, 2020
Please noet: During the height of the winter season (December 26 – January 6 and February 1 – March 21) advance bookings for Husky Sled Rides are confirmed primarily to customers who book a total of three experiences.
