There will be 2 people in each sleigh, the other one is the driver who needs to be at least 16 years old and physically fit to be able to handle the sleigh, and the passenger will sit in the sleigh.

Samoyed dog sleigh ride
This program starts from our safari office with a snowmobile sleigh ride to a small samoyed dog kennel, where our guide awaits us. We will get instructions of mushing a dog sleigh and we will enjoy a 4 km dog sleigh safari. After the safari there is a good time to pet the dogs and ask our guide some more information about the activity. The total duration is about 1,5 hours and the dog safari distance is about 4 km.

5 km husky safari
After gearing up in warm winter clothes, we start our way from our safari house by car towards this small family owned husky farm. We will meet our guide who will tell us all the instructions of mushing a husky sled and all the safety info. After the safari there is a good time to pet the dogs and ask our guide some more information about the activity. Children younger than 6 can join the group for the visit but can’t join a husky safari. They need to have a caretaker for the duration of the safari, to look out for them when the others are on the safari.
The total duration is about 1h 45min and the dog sledding distance is about 5 km.
