Husky sledding in Rovaniemi, Finland is a MUST DO. The huskies are unbelievable cute and the sledding is so much fun. Here is all the info you need.
Husky Farm & Husky Sledding in Rovaniemi, Finland
Husky farm and husky sledding -> These are 2 separate activities. You can do both or only one of them. We did both, as it was included in our tour and we didn't regret it at all! If you want to do the husky adventure without an organised tour, go for it. Just come to the husky place and get the ticket.
Our tour included a 2 km husky ride - since it can get pretty windy and cold on the husky ride, make sure to wear warm clothes. If we had the chance again, we would do the 5 km - it's fun! So if you have a heavy wallet, go for it :)
Right now, there are 106 huskies at the farm. If you're lucky and go soon (blog post was published in March 2019), you will have the chance to even see 4 husky puppies! They are so cute :) However, we did pet the older ones and they seemed to really enjoy it.
This one below was so photogenic :) Each of them have a name, a think this one was called Cruella...
Then the ride started - it was cold but the sledding with energetic huskies through the scenic forrest was unforgettable.
You have the chance to visit the husky cages and check out the huskies' names and functions in the team written on the cages. Huskies are not aggressive at all - they really like to be petted. But take your gloves off first, as they love them and they like to take them away from you :)
If you decide to only visit the husky farm and get a small tour around the place, the entrance fee is 10 EUR per adult. Check it out there.
Stay tuned - a video will follow soon! :)
How to Get There
The husky farm is just about 8 km out of the Rovaniemi city centre. You can book the tour via one of the tour operators (check the Visit Rovaniemi Webpage - choose a tour), which will take you there by a van or go alone and hop on the Santa Express Bus from the City Centre and drive to the Santa Claus Village. The husky farm is nearby.
