As part of a 6 night winter activities holiday in Lapland, did a full day husky safari with Guesthouse Husky. It was truly amazing. I am petite and weigh 45kg, so was a little concerned that I would not be able to handle my dog sled as these dogs are so strong! But after a few minutes, I quickly got the hang of it. We covered around 55km crossing frozen lakes covered in pure fresh snow and going up and down through forests with trees dripping with fresh snow.
You have to work hard going up and downhill TIP - don't try to take photos in the bumpy sections! - and while we were warned we would be tired and aching the following day, neither of us felt too bad, probably as we mountain bike regularly, so have strong arms and legs.
Scenery is magical, we learned lots about the huskies, how they are trained, how much they eat etc during the day from the knowledgeable guide. Stopped for a great lunch cooked by our guide as part of the trip.
Temperatures can change dramatically during the day, so even if it's sunny at the start, wear one of their snow suits - it's very exposed on the frozen lakes and can be windy so you will need the layers!
