Husky Mushing Experience: 1h husky sledding in Rovaniemi

Our enthusiastic huskies 🐺 will take to on a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience, that will become the highlight of your winter holidays in Lapland. Let the dogs lead you through Arctic nature, while you enjoy the surrounding beauty during husky sledding in Rovaniemi.

After arrival at Parpalandia, the tour starts in the husky kennel. Here you will receive driving and safety instructions. After that, you are ready to take your place in the sled and start steering your own husky team through the Arctic forest. In this exciting adventure, we will be driving approximately 6-10km. We will take a break in the middle to take great pictures with our cute four-legged friends.

Normally two people share a sled, one is steering and one sitting on the sled. It is possible, and recommended, to change the positions in the middle of the track. Small children can sit together with an adult. If you wish to have a sled only for yourself, please, book the solo-driving option for husky sledding in Rovaniemi. An experienced musher will guide the tour all the time and will help you if needed.

Once back in the kennel from husky sledding in Rovaniemi, we invite you to our kota. Here you can warm up and learn more about huskies and Parpalandia. Our experienced guides are also happy to answer your questions about huskies, their training, and daily life. Listen to their stories and find out more about huskies by the fire with a small Finnish barbecue – sausage (makkara), cookies, and hot juice.

Before leaving Parpalandia, you will be able to buy a Husky Musher Driving License for you or your child. We also recommend you to visit our small souvenir and buy a product made by local artisans. You will get a great memory and at the same time support the local economy.
