Husky Farm & Safari

DURATION: 2:00-2:30 HOURS (2 persons per sledge)
The barking of enthusiastic dogs will welcome you to the most genuine Husky farm in Rovaniemi. The head musher will talk about the life and training of these Arctic animals and you will also have the chance to take some great photos. After brief instructions and riding in pairs, you embark on a run through the forest behind your pack of huskies. After the trip there is time to visit the farm and enjoy a traditional outdoor lunch of Lappish sausage grilled on the campfire followed by Lappish pancakes.
The day continues with a visit to the world famous Santa Claus Village, built right on the Arctic Circle and home to Santa Claus. Stop by his busy post office where you can ask Santa to send a letter to your loved ones just before Christmas. Take a step into the magical world of Santa’s home and meet Santa himself. No words can describe the feelings provoked during this moment from a fairy-tale. It is something you will always remember. A must for any visit to Lapland. From Santa Claus Village it is a short trip to the hotel for check in. The rest of the afternoon and evening is at leisure.

We took the St. Petersburg Line tour from Stockholm to St. Petersburg. The ferry is an older boat but has been well maintained and is very clean. The food was incredibly good. Our tour of St. Petersburg with Maria (Masha) was the highlight. Masha was extremely knowledgeable and gave us great insight into the history and culture of St. Petersburg. She also navigated the popular sites (Hermitage, Petershof, Pushkin and Catherine's Palace with great skill so we rarely had to wait in the crowds. Highly recommend this tour.
