Few things bring to mind the frosty north quite like a husky sled.
This tour, carrying travellers deep into the Finnish wilderness on the back of a husky driven sled, affords you the opportunity to experience this icon of the north.
After transferring to the dog kennels, where the huskies are eagerly waiting to go out for the day, you will board the sled and your day begins. Full instructions will be given. Rushing between snow-clad trees and over crystalline snow into the heart of Finnish Lapland, the natural silence of this wild north is all pervasive.
The husky journey is approximately 25/40km depending on conditions, taking about 3 hours in total. En route stop to switch drivers and photo opportunities before arriving at the campfire, where the dogs will have a chance to rest while you can stretch and enjoy a coffee and cake, soaking up the area’s atmosphere. Total excursion time is 4-5 hours including the transfers, lunch and husky trip.
Price includes lunch around a campfire and winter clothing. Other days are on request basis.
Duration: 4 hours
Price: From £232 per adult (when 2 share the sledge); from £116 child (11 and under – max 1 child per sledge)
Departures: Wednesdays at 10:30, other days on request. (Winter 2018-19)
