This safari is most suitable for families with small children or for people, who would not like to stay outdoors too long. There is always a chance to spend time with huskies after the safari, learn some interesting fact about sled dogs and definitely make some nice photos for your memories to take back home. We serve hot berry juice after the husky safari to warm you up.

Please note that the transfers take 90-30 min both ways, depending on your pick up spot.

Frequently asked questions 

(See all questions and answers here)

- When is a booking for a tour with Nordic Adventures confirmed?


A booking is confirmed when you receive a confirmation email. If you think you have made a booking and have not received an email confirmation, please send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form, and we will figure this out together.


Are the husky tours suitable for small children?


It is when you dress them well and it’s not too cold. Children can enjoy the tour very much if they are dressed well enough. For infants we would be wary with travelling below -20 Celcius.

If it’s really cold we travel according to the capabilities of our weakest member and might adapt the tour to suit the colder temperatures.


- Pregnancy at the time of the tour?


Pregnant women are not at greater risk of an accident or harm than other participants in the tour. It is recommended that pregnant women join the tour as passengers and preferably in guide sled. However we recommend careful consideration if you wish to join a cart or sled driving part of the tour when on the 1st or 3rd trimester. You can send us an email if you wish to have more information and it’s also useful to note it in the booking in advance. If the program requires special organization (e.g. additional transport), Nordic Adventures shall not be responsible for the possible extra costs.


- Snow goggles necessary or not?


We do not provide snow goggles during our tours as we do not recommend using them. Personally we prefer to have our vision unimpaired. Goggles tend to fog up, limit visibility and cause unnecessary driving accidents with unexprienced dog drivers. If you really do want to use goggles please bring your own then.


- What kind of huskies are these?


We have what are called “Alaskan Huskies” They are relatively unknown outside of the sled-dog world. They tend to be more diverse in size, eye color and shape than their pure-breed cousins the “Siberian Huskies”. Please ask us about them, we are more than willing to “talk dog” and answer all your questions!


- Can we see husky puppies?


The answer is complicated and simple at the same time; Sometimes!

We breed dogs to keep our kennel healthy and that means sometimes no puppies and sometimes 1 or 2 litters per year. These pups tend to be born in the spring time and can not be considered “puppies” any more by time the snowfalls. We do our best to prevent unwanted and unplanned pregnancies in the kennel by castrating all our non breeding males.

We are aware that certain kennels time and or plan their litters for display purposes, but we find this a dubious and unethical practice not beneficial to the welfare of the dogs.


- Can you come with your own car?


Maybe! Our kennel is remote and sometimes challenging to reach especially in winter by unexperienced winter drivers. In summer and autumn you can check with us first and get good instructions how to come here. We arrange transfers from and to Rovaniemi in order to keep the schedules working we prefer you use them. It has happened that we have had to delay our tours; to the detriment of part of our group, to go help lost or stuck drivers. In winter or autumn we do not offer any discounts for driving yourself. You can park near town and hitch a ride with our transfer, it’s faster and less stressful for everyone.


- From where do we offer pick-ups and drop off?


We can pick you up from:

– Hostel Cafe Koti (Valtakatu 21)

– Santa Claus Village (reception Santa Claus Holiday Village)

– Ounasvaara Chalets

If you are staying in a private apartment in Rovaniemi area, we will provide you a centralized pick up point. From that point you will be picked up at the informed time, so please be on time waiting for the driver.

The driver will look for you in the reception area by name and will have a sign that says “Bearhill”.  Sometimes transfer might run with few minutes delays due to weather conditions, some customers being late etc. We try to make sure that any delays do not interfere with the program itself.

On the return journey we can drop you off to Santa´s Village, railway station, the Arctic Snow Hotel or the airport as well


- Do i have to book in advance?


There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.

If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call or email our office directly, the phone number is +358 40 744 2567. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form. What we need to have is your name, how many people are in your party, where you are staying, a way of contacting you either an e-mail or a phone number and what tour you are trying to book.
