Meet and mush with your new howling, furry friends on this safari adventure. Huskies are one of the most beloved animals of the North, and you’ll understand why as soon as you meet the pack. Pet them, pose with them for photos, and listen to stories about their lives. Then, take a 5- to 10-kilometer long husky sled ride, where you get to be the musher yourself. This means you can control the pack of huskies towing the sled. The dogs absolutely love pulling loads and running on the trail across the forests. Feel the thrill of the ride and the cool wind on your face as you tear through the forests. Finish off with a hot drink before saying goodbye to your new friends.
Combine ice karting and snowmobiling, two of the most exhilarating experiences that Lapland has to offer. Begin the activity with the qualifying rounds for karting on the icy, open race track. Set your best lap-time and secure the starting position. Then, enjoy a well-deserved break around the open fire with hot beverages. When everyone is ready, begin the race. Be the fastest and finish before your colleagues, friends, or family. The ice karts are powerful, winter go-karts with silent, four-stroke engines and winter tires studded with spikes. Every year the ice track is rebuilt with improvements and every kart is fitted with a transponder to ensure an accurate reading of the lap times. On the 500 to 550-meter track, there are plenty of spots for drifting, speeding up, and passing. The walls are protected with snow to prevent damage to the karts or injuries to the riders. Upon arrival...
