Snowmobile Safari to Reindeer and Husky Farm - families' favourite!

Snowmobiles, reindeer and huskies all on the same day!
After changing into safari gear and a short introduction to snowmobiling, we head to the snowy forests by snowmobiles. First destination of the day is a reindeer farm, where the reindeer herder is already waiting for the group with his four-legged friends. After learning the tricks of a reindeer herder you get to go on a short reindeer sledge ride (300m) and feed the reindeer. Then we have a coffee break in an old cabin and hear more stories about the life of a reindeer herder. After warming up it is time to continue with the snowmobiles to meet huskies. The husky farmer will introduce you to the dogs and you get a short course on how to drive a husky sledge. Then it's time to drive your own sledge (about 2,5 km, 2 persons/sledge)! After the drive it is time to head back to the safari house by snowmobiles.

Snowmobile Safari to a Husky Farm

Here is an excellent opportunity to have a go at two different and equally exotic means of transport! First you'll drive a snowmobile through the snowy landscape. After stopping the snowmobiles you can already hear the eager barking of the huskies as they are ready to take you for a 2 km spin! First you will be given the instruction on how to drive a husky sledge and then you get to do it yourself!  Each husky sledge can fit 2-3 persons, drivers can be changed midway the sledge ride. After the ride and petting the dogs, snacks (sausages, hot drinks and sweet pastry) are enjoyed. With full stomachs we head back to the starting point by snowmobiles.
