Husky sledding experience in Kilpisjärvi

Meet the Kilpisjärvi Husky Team! Siberian huskies are friendly and they just adore pulling a sled – that’s their hobby and that’s their work!

The duration of this trip is 1,5 hours. The Husky Sledding Experience is organized from December 1 to April 30.  Weather conditions allowing we will start already in late November and continue until early May.

The Siberian huskies of Kilpisjärvi

Siberian huskies have been our personal hobby for over two decades now. Our present husky family was started by Ajatar Miss Tundra, also known as "Missi" and we now have four of her offspring in our team. Brothers Nalle and Nekku were born in August 2018 and sisters Talvikki and Tuisku in March 2015. Their father is Mr. Peni, Missi's grandson and their mother is Maya who was adopted by us in 2014. Peni's adopted brothers Pyry and Sulo complete our team of eight Siberians.

Husky sledding experience in Kilpisjärvi

Our husky team is primarily a hobby for us but we organize sledding experiences for visitors during the winter season. 

Siberian huskies are friendly and curious by nature and they love nothing better than taking people on sled rides. That's their hobby and their work! Join us and get acquainted with these lovely dogs, learn to mush and enjoy the stunning scenery of Kilpisjärvi.

Learn to be a musher

You and your party can now learn how to be a ”musher”. Meet your guide Martti, the owner of the husky team, on the lake shore. Martti will teach you how to control the sled – and before you know it you’ll be off, “mushing” the husky team, heading towards the Swedish shore.

The others in your party will follow you by snowmobile, seated comfortably in the snowmobile passenger sled while the guide drives. As a musher you are on your own with the huskies, each person in your party taking his or her turn as the musher. A youngster can be seated in the husky sled while the parent drives.

At the turn-around point a break is taken and you’ll have a chance to get acquainted with each husky – they are so eager at the start that longer introductions may not have been possible. A hot berry juice is served during the break.

The ride itself lasts approximately one hour and 1 – 4 persons can be accommodated at a time. We arrange max. 2 rides per day so make your booking well in advance.
