Be a musher! 25km husky ride

Fantastic Family Trip! We booked a private trip with the huskies for ourselves and our 5 and 6 year olds. We were picked up at our hotel by Aksana and driven to their home and husky farm next to a stunning frozen lake surrounded by snow covered trees. There were 8 huskies (4 per sleigh) and we were shown how to drive the sleighs, with children wrapped up warm inside. Antti and Aksana came with us on their snowmobile and made sure we were OK on several occasions during the hour and we covered around 8kms on the lake. The place was magical and it was a great experience. Part way round, we had some warming hot berry tea. Once back at the house, the children had a chance to cuddle the huskies and cat and we were offered hot drinks and crisps with homemade salmon dip followed with delicious homemade Finnish pancakes and jams. This was such a wonderful way to see the area and a great way for the children to meet the animals. We would definitely recommend this.

Day hike at Amazing Auttiköngäs area

A Perfect Winter Wonderland Experience. Kristiina's detailed messages to me as I was attempting to organize my days in Rovaniemi were an indication of the amazing experiences we were to have. Traveling with Kristiina for two days was certainly a joyful experience for me. I only wish I had booked more activities! We hiked Korouoma Canyon on a beautiful cold wintry day where she shared her extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna. Have you ever witnessed the instant freezing of hot water as it is tossed in the air? Have you ever given a tree a "yoga hug?" Have you ever had to cling to ropes as you descend or ascend hilly snow covered narrow trails? It's an amazing experience! She is a petite gal who carried approximately 24 pounds of supplies in her backpack for the entire day. In her backpack she had an ax, extra firewood, and our dinner of salmon. We arrived at a lean to for our dinner. Luckily, the only other group we had me on the trails for the entire day was just finishing their dinner so we did not have to start our own fire. However, with her expertise, that would not have been an issue. All hikers are expected to chop firewood for the next hikers. She chopped the wood; I tried but not too successfully. However, it was a fun experience. The last part of the hike was all uphill as we walked by the light of the moon and listened to the snow crunching under our feet but still aware of the total silence of our surroundings. Kristiina is highly professional, knowledgeable, and shares a wealth of information about Lapland. If you want to have a perfect experience in Lapland, she is the guide to contact!
