We were 2 people on one sledge and we did not even get the chance to ride it. DO NOT TAKE THIS TRIP.
The images are fake, and the ride was disappointing, it was 4 min not worth the money. You can’t pet the dogs.

This activity was absolutely OUTSTANDING! I initially thought that we would all be merely riders, so when I realized that we would be expected to "drive" the sleds, I was a bit nervous, but it was the absolutely BEST experience! These amazing dogs are incredible, and the guides are there for everyone's safety every inch of the way! My travel party of 5 women all were elated by the experience. The only challenge for me personally was getting the sled's brake to fully engage to bring the team to a full stop. However, slowing the team down enough by the use of the brake (without a fully locked down brake) worked to ensure safety, especially when your dog team is so trained and connected to follow the trail and the teams ahead of them. I have enough weight on my body to have been able to make it work, but my more slender daughter was reluctant to drive because she wasn't sure she could do it, and I agreed. Perhaps, a full practice ("feet on") rather than just a visual demonstration lesson before taking to the trail would have helped because I couldn't consistently put the full brake on, but I could slow them down enough to effectively bring the beautiful and brilliant canines to a gradual stop. Mind the spacing between you and the team ahead of you! These dogs are truly magical and majestic creatures. The guides are so knowledgeable, thoughtful, and responsible! Be certain to understand the hand signals for "slow down" and "stop" and keep your focus on what is happening ahead of you. Some of the other participants seemed to be not fully paying attention during the lesson before we embarked, and that is a very bad thing to do for the safety of the dogs and the other sled driving/riding humans, so show responsibility and respect and PAY ATTENTION!!! Ultimately, when the dogs are pulling as a team in the breathtaking beauty of the trails, there is something powerfully quiet and mystical in the air. One of the members of my party was on the first sled, and she saw a herd of reindeer pass through the adjacent grounds when the front guide spied them and pointed them out. All in all, a memorable and delightful experience that we will never forget!

This was so much fun. After getting an initial introduction and guide to using the sleds we were off to meet some extremely enthusiastic dogs. All they wanted to do was go. Really good fun. Had a stop half way and could change drivers if wanted. Worthwhile to do but can be hard work especially when having to help move the sleigh up slopes. Had the option to go around again and off we went. At the end got to meet and greet the dogs and then off to a wooden hut with a roaring fire, hot coffee or chocolate then lunch of soup, sandwiches and muffin type desert. Had a meeting with two of the puppies and we all got a cuddle. Had some information re their training and what they do at different times of the year. Finally went and checked out the dogs "homes". Really worth the visit thoroughly enjoyed it.

Amazing day we were provided with warm suits, hats, boots and gloves. The staff were fabulous providing excellent instruction before we went to our dog sleighs. We swapped drivers at the half way point when they took our pictures with our phones. At the end we went into a wooden building with a roaring fire, hot juice and snacks to learn a little more about the dogs. Highly recommended a once in a lifetime experience.

Absolutely great experience and very well organised. For us it was a long cherished dream come true.
Well equipped with regards to clothing and a nice scenic route. Nice staff.
After the tour they took plenty of time for explanations and meeting puppies. No rush at all.
Only point for improvement is to supply a blanket for people in the sled, they will get cold.

The landscape and the experience with the dogs was great BUT the guide's inhospitality ruined it (it looked like she was the boss, her colleagues seemed nice but they were not the ones animating the ride) :
-she didn't smiled once and it seemed like all the guests were annoying her despite the exorbitant price of the excursion
-she was yelling at us for no reason like we were turbulent little child
-she separated the groups
-she forbid the use of camera
I highly recommend her to change her vocation, since she hates tourists and group management.
This might avoid to ruined people's dream of riding with huskies...

Great organisation and nice to share with Finnish staff. Most important for us : The dogs looked happy and well cared. The meal was really good (soup and sandwich, especially the cinnamon and cardamom bun !) We were lucky to visited the puppies .

The tour itself was great. The tour guide and his team and Husky & CO were great and made the tour fantastic. What I didn't realise is that one adult per sledge is in charge of the Husky's which at 1st wasn't sure about. But I would def do this again as loved it and preferred it to just sitting in the sledge as keeps fun and keeps you warmer!
I would not book through Viator though. We had a booking made almost a year before travel and went to pay just before we left for Lapland and they said payment refused and cancelled our entire booking without our consent. I could not then go back and rebook this online as stated fully booked. So I had to phone Viator to explain and rebook which cost me £165.00 plus I had to pay the new rate which was more expensive so in total I was around £300 out of pocket. I tried to claim a refund and they declined. This would have ruined our dream family holiday but I refused to let it.

Loved this trip it was so much fun and peaceful at the same time just going through the woods in the middle of nowhere!
You get to drive the sleigh well I say you drive the dogs take you and your only job is to break and sometimes break hard. Great fun really enjoyed it.

I really regretted doing this. The husky’s are kept chained to their dog houses all day excepting the tours and not happy. Dog sledding has only been recently imported to Finland and massively expanded for Tourism. Yes it’s very beautiful to travel through snow forests and quite fun but it leaves a bad taste. The Sami people are reindeer herders whose way of life and herding lands have been divided up and are under threat e.g from mining. I wish I’d put my money into a Sami run reindeer activity.
