What to expect?

Chose to visit Rovaniemi for a long weekend, Thursday to Sunday, or opt for the shorter version, Friday to Sunday.

Check in to your hotel, located in central Rovaniemi. Upon booking you receive a voucher for a three-star or better hotel, typically a Scandic hotel or similar. Present this voucher at the front desk to get your room. Your booking includes breakfast every morning for the duration of your stay.

Now explore Rovaniemi! Did you know that geographically speaking, Rovaniemi is one of Europe's largest towns and approximately 63,000 Finns call this region home? Around 12,450 Reindeers also do the same.

From inside the urban city to the surrounding Lappish forest, Rovaniemi’s landscape is decorated with countless fells, forests, lakes, and rivers which are all entwined with history, culture, and heritage simply waiting to be explored.

What better way to do so, than on a sleigh pulled by a pack of eager Alaskan huskies?!

Dog sledding:
The next day, meet your guide at the safari office in central Rovaniemi at 2pm. From there, travel together by car to the husky camp located right outside Rovaniemi and feel the excitement rise as you slowly approach the camp site. You’re about to set off into the wilderness on your own sleigh pulled by a pack of huskies, born to run, eager like there’s no tomorrow.

After an introduction to mushing a husky sled by dog sledding professionals, you have learnt the basics of this Arctic transportation form and are now ready to give it a try yourself. Feel what it’s like to master your huskies and control the sleigh. Do you feel ready for your dog sledding adventure?

The ride takes you approximately 5 kms into the forest and back. Feel the power of these trained huskies as they pull your sleigh on top of snow and ice, right into Rovaniemi’s white forests. Cross over frozen waters and slide through scenic landscapes. Remember to enjoy the views around, they are amazing.

During the ride, the driver and passenger can switch places. Your guide is there to help you the whole way, so you can stay safe and be in control. When you’re done you are taken back to Rovaniemi by car. What a weekend adventure, out of the ordinary this has been. Relax, unwind and enjoy your evening in the Arctic capital.
