Husky safaris

A tour in a husky sledge is a must for any Lapland-visitor. The feeling of travelling in a sledge pulled by a team of huskies is unforgettable.

When your newfound fluffy friends take you through the wintry landscape, you can enjoy the silence and the nature surrounding you. Husky tours are available daily in various lengths and mostly include a farm visit, where the mushers tell you about life with these lovely arctic dogs. Each husky team has space for two guests in their sledge.

Activity | Ruka-Kuusamo

Did you know that each husky team has space for two guests in their sledge? One place for a musher and the other place for a passenger – and the best part is that you get to switch places during the tour. The musher steers the sledge and stands on the skis behind the seated passenger in the sledge. Children are welcome on the shorter tours, up to 10 km, where they can travel safely in the sledges together with the parents.
