          We opted for one on their newest itinerary"The Coffee Tour" where you do not have to drive sled yourself which a lot of the other ones do. It was a truly magical experience to run across the frozen lake and the coffee time between the rides was very enjoyable. This trip would last a bit longer than other trips cuz of the break so keep that in mind. We had Pete and he's the nicest guy ever and he treat all the huskies like his own babies. Highly recommend Bearhill for Husky rides!

          Amazing experience and super friendly staff
          This was by far the most memorable and special part of our trip, we booked the coffee tour and as a family of 4 we had a large sled to ourselves. Our musher Antonia was fabulous and very funny! She was very informative about the dogs and area, my boys loved her and how she interacted with the dogs which are very well cared for and loved. We stopped in the woods for a campfire where they offered tea for us Brits, hot chocolate or coffee and cooked us sausages and marshmallows whilst we talked about the area and dogs, my 2 boys also got to spend a lot of time petting and hugging the dogs. All of the staff were super friendly and informative, pickup was easy with clear instructions provided, we had a nice minibus to transport us through the woods. We had the best time and would highly recommend Bearhill to everyone, honestly don't miss this if you are travelling to Rovaniemi. If you just want to sit back and enjoy the ride I highly recommend the coffee tour, it was fab! Thank you for giving us such a memorable and enjoyable experience, we will never forget it and it was worth every penny!

          Unforgettable Experience!
          My partner and I had the most amazing time on our morning tour at Bearhill Husky. I did a lot of research into the best company for a safari tour and Bearhill Husky were the clear winners. It's a family run business who truly care for their dogs. As a massive dog lover myself, this was paramount. The team checked the dogs each morning to make sure they are in perfect condition for a ride, if not they'll be rested. During the safari, other guides came along on snowmobiles to make sure the dogs (and us) were okay and not tangled or injured. They really did care! Laura was our guide and gave us clear instructions on how to ride correctly. The dogs were loving it every step of the way. The Queen B was a special girl! She answered all our questions about the dogs. We honestly had the best time; one of our all time favourite trips! I even purchased a t-shirt at the end of the tour to always remember it. I can't recommend Bearhill Husky enough.

          Great tour, good distance, lovely dogs, sustainable tourism. We took the tour with our two daughters of 5 and 9 and just everything was great. They provided us with extra clothes and where warm the entire tour. We enjoyed it very much. They even considered the gluten allergy of my wife when they gave the traditional cookies and berry juice.

          The highlight of our trip to Rovaniemi
          Wow, wow, wow! Words fail me to describe the experience of going on a husky sledge ride with this company. We have 2 children, a 8 yr old guy and a 6 yr old girl. By the end of our trip to Lapland, we asked them what they most liked about the trip. I was thinking they’d say the visit to Santa’s village or meeting Santa Claus. NO! It was the husky ride! 😃 This is such a serious, responsible and ethical company. They care for the dogs with such love and extend the same care to customers. We were treated super kindly, staff helped us to warm up with the overalls and boots they lent us; gave lots of explanation about how to use the sledge safely. And after the ride everyone is treated to a lovely warm tea with biscuits before getting their bus back to Santa’s village. Don’t think twice, book with them! You’ll make memories for a lifetime!

          high quality activity, worth the cost
          I am a thrifty traveler but I don’t mind an expensive activity if it’s worth it. This was worth it! There were 18 people on our tour but we all got excellent, personal attention. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We were impressed by how many support staff there were to get the dogs ready. Additionally, there were 2 snowmobiles with support staff who checked on us throughout the tour to ensure nobody got off course and no dogs were injured. My family and I had so much fun and always felt safe.

          Best thing we did in Finland
          Absolutely magical experience!!! Both my children (9 & 12 years) and I enjoyed this so much, we would have loved to do it again. It was on the more expensive side but actually worked out to be really good value compared to everything else we did. It was a full, well-rounded experience that we all adored. The huskies were amazing, the guides were fun and informative and spoke perfect English. Definitely recommend this activity above everything else.

          One of the highlights of our trip to Finland and Norway. What a treat!
          The husky ride, tour of the kennels led by Betty, talk given by Betty about husky temperament and behavior while we were having hot soup in the tent, were one of the highlights of our trip to Finland and Norway. About the ride: The dogs had to work particularly hard on February 24 because the temperature was relatively warm (+/- 0 degree C) and the snow was a bit slushy. Our musher, who happened to be the dogs' owner, explained how she trained the dogs (her dream is to compete in races), and allowed me to pet them after the ride :) About the tour and talk: We were impressed by the cleanliness of the kennels and Betty's love for the dogs. FYI: We were part of a group and the husky tour was booked through an agent, so I do not know which tour we went on, except it was a morning tour.

          Exciting dogsled ride in beautiful Finland
          What a wonderful experience. Peter and all of the Bear Hill staff’s main concern is for the safety of the customers and the dogs in their care. I was nervous at first but seeing the safety protocols in action allowed me to relax and truly enjoy the experience. Peter’s love for the sport and the hard working dogs was fully on display, Bear Hill is fortunate to have such a professional. Be sure to take advantage of the warm outer clothing offered. I was totally toasty the entire 1.5 hr trip.

          A great experience!
          Amazing experience. Pete explained everything really well and showed a passion for the Husky’s. The entire trip was well organised. There are some snowmobiles for safety and blocking off the wrong path for the dogs but they were not a nuisance at all as they came and went. A very nice experience and really nice to learn a bit more about the dogs.

        Our whole experience was phenomenal!!!!! Our guide Martin (not sure of spelling) explained everything so clearly and patiently and made the activity a success.

        The boots and coveralls provided meant we stayed warm and dry and the sausage and warm berry juice were very welcome to help warm us up at the end.

        Our dog team knew exactly what to do and their only problem was us braking because of the people in front! They wanted to run and run!! The dogs were very happy to participate and we were pleased at how well they were looked after.

        I would highly recommend this company and this activity!

        The Bear Hill Husky experience is amazing, our guide who meet us from the bus who had her own pet husky with her was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The experience of being pulled along by a team of Alaskan husky’s was just incredible, the team of dogs worked extremely well together. It’s 2 people per sled, one driving and the other taking the pictures of the stunning forests. A change over takes place so you both have the opportunity to drive. After the run, we returned to traditional yuht house, where we enjoyed a hot drink and a sausage. This was an opportunity to ask questions, after which we had a tour of the kennels, and get up close and personal with the dogs. If your in the region this is a must do experience, as I said awesome.

        Incredible experience alongside passionate people. The owner talks about his dogs with an obvious passion and transmits all his knowledge to us. What a pleasure! We went on a 10 km safari, where we had the opportunity to drive the sled ourselves. Then we visited the farm and had a snack around the fire to warm up. Thank you for everything, if one day I have the opportunity to come back, I will come back without hesitation! Good luck in the future and hope that you can start sledding races soon!

        Our family had the most amazing time doing the Happy Trail Morning Husky Safari. It was a once in a lifetime experience for us and it didn’t disappoint. Sledding through the forest, snow falling down on us, then onto the frozen lake, it was just breathtaking. The dogs were happy, extremely well looked after and did a great job pulling four of us around. Betty and the Bear Hill Husky team were professional and at all times dog and customer safety was their number one priority.

        The highlight of our Rovaniemi trip.

        The whole day was very well organised from start to finish. Valentine, the host, really cares for his dogs and it shows throughout the whole experience. It’s clear that the dog’s welfare is the most important aspect of Bearhill and this is something which it has to be proud of. We learnt a lot from Valentine and under no circumstances was the trip rushed at any point. We had excessive time to pet our sled Huskies afterwards and to give them treats.

        The route was fantastic and took in scenery of the local lake and surrounding forests.

        A truly amazing experience which we will remember forever, and I would recommend Bearhill Huskies to anyone. Book this excursion over the commercialised Huskie tours elsewhere around Rovaniemi. Bearhill is a working Huskie kennel/farm and clearly prioritises their dogs over commercial profit.

        The husky ride was really wonderful. The dogs were very kind. The sled was easy to steer and we got a good introduction to sled control. The staff was friendly and professional. The sausages tasted good after the trip and it was nice to hear stories about the dogs and the farm :) I warmly recommend the husky safari to everyone!

        This was definitely the best part of my trip to Finland! Would highly recommend this tour. The whole experience was awesome! The dogs are beautiful, and so friendly, and very excited to run! Throughout the tour, you could tell they were well looked after and very loved.
        It was about 45 mins transfer from the city, and then the tour was about 2. 5 hours - which included hire of warm clothes and boots (which I would definitely recommend) with the option for socks/beanies/gloves. Then you are given instructions on sledding (which was very useful) and then you are set up with the dogs and a sled. I was a bit nervous to start, but it was amazing and no need to be nervous, the dogs are fantastic and know what they are doing, and the staff are really helpful, and are along the trail, and you all sled in a line, so there are people in front and behind. Then after sledding it was cuddle time with the dogs, before a warm juice and biscuits with some Q & A's. The scenery is absolutely beautiful!
        Hands down, I would highly recommend this tour, and would totally do it again. An experience I wont forget :-)

        I enjoyed a fun husky sledding trip this morning. The Bearhill Husky staff are top notch. From the driver who picked me up to the staff who greeted us and help us all get outfitted to the one explaining how to drive a sled. They are friendly and very patient and are very good at corralling a big group of parents, kids and other adults to make sure everyone has a great time.

        The dogs are excited and ready to pull the sleds! We had time after our 45-min sled ride to offer the dogs treats and take photos. We then met in a wooden frame building that had a warm fire and we drank hot juice and had cookies. Our wonderful guide had her young husky pup with her and she answered our questions and told us about the dogs and what they do year-round.

        I recommend this experience for well-behaved children and adults! It's a lot of fun!

        I did the Happy Trails morning tour with my 13-year-old daughter. We enjoyed this so much! Bearhill has all the gear to keep you warm. We were all given thorough sled driving instructions then set off together through the forest and around the lake. Staff on snowmobiles made sure we were all safe. We came away with spectacular photos, knowledge about the dogs, and an unforgettable experience.
