This was such a fabulous experience! The dogs were full of energy and ready to go. We were allowed to walk around the site and say Hi to the other dogs. The sledding itself was amazing and compared to other dog sledding businesses we looked at, the cost was very reasonable. My husband had to do all of the mushing due to an ankle injury i had. Luckily he is fit, as some of the trail is up and down, so you need to be able to run and push the sled to help the dogs. The instructor at the front kept checking back to make sure we were all okay, and there's a swap over half way through to allow you to experience mushing and sitting. Just being part of these dogs running was so much fun and we will definitely book with them again next year. It was the highlight of our time in Finland!

The activity is well organized. Running with the huskies is an amazing experience. It should have been better if the hour was considered from the start of the riding.

Erstklassige Hundeschlittentour mit netten Guides. Es gab eine eine kurze und gute Einführung und dann ging es schon los. Im Anschluss wurden die Tiere noch gestreichelt.
