Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

A perfect way to enjoy the thrill of mushing a dog team with your family. Meet dogs, learn how to drive your sled and then head of for a thrilling dash through the magical snowy forest. Afterwards there will be time to mingle with the dogs, have a snack with juice and cookies around the fire.

This safari is most suitable for families with small children or for people, who would not like to stay outdoors too long. We serve hot berry juice after the husky safari to warm you up.

Stop At:

• Bearhill Husky, Sinettäjärventie 22, 97220 Rovaniemi, Finland

I throughly enjoyed the afternoon, it was abit more physically exerting than I expected and really loved it. Two of my party had to cancel at the last minute so I had to go solo, worked out completely fine and was partnered up with a great partner. Our guide, I can’t remember

Thank you for your lovely feedback! Unfortunate to hear that two from your party could not make it to the trip after all! Solo travelers we do pair up together unless the solo driving supplement has been booked. It is nice to hear you had a great partner to share the experience even if you just met on this tour. Your guide Sandyr surely appreciates the kind feedback as well

It was an amazing lifelong experience. Everything was perfect. The dogs are super cute and even we never tried it before everything went smoothly because of the perfection of the staff. We enjoyed every moment of it. A bucket list thing to do for sure.

I am happy to hear you had wonderful time with us and thank you for your kind words and lovely feedback. We do not require previous experience for our daily tours as our trails are quite easy and when listening the driving instructions you learn the basics which you need to know to be able to handle the sled.

We did the husky ride in the pitch black (with a head torch) which made for quite an exhilarating ride when you've never done it before! They provided all the warm outer clothing that you might need with a place to leave your clothes and boots. We were then given a quick 10

Hi elizabethkS4455LA Thanks for the kind words. Each tour is accompanied by safety snowmobilers that watch over your and the dogs safety and make sure that the dogs don't take wrong turns. Because they jump ahead we call them them "jumpers" and its the toughest job at the kennel. kind regards Valentijn

I don’t know how it happened. I thought I chose the right dates for my trip but didn’t. On an activity this expensive you’d think they’d offer a partial refund Or to book a different ride. They did offer a short ride but those are dinky and more exciting for younger kids. My

Hi Melissa It is indeed a sad situation, and it does indeed suck. However it was entirely preventable, had you checked your booking, and informed us of your mistake earlier. You suggest that we create a refund policy, but we already have one, it is listed on our website, and on the TripAdvisor booking site as well. It very clearly states that a cancellation at the last minute or a "No Show" are not refundable. The TripAdvisor page even states that "all sales are final" you even have to check a box that you have read and agreed with them when booking on our website. The first sentence of our booking confirmation email and voucher asks that you check the details of the booking. Had you done so you would have noticed that you had booked a date 2 weeks earlier than you intended. When this happens and you contact us in a timely manner, we are more than willing to help fix the problem, book the correct dates, or refund the sum if those dates are not available. However you did not contact us in a timely manner. In fact you did not check or did not notice, as you freely admit in your review. On the date of your actual booking, we planned employees shifts, transfers where booked, dog teams hooked up all in anticipation of you being at a pre agreed taxi pick up and joining the tour. You obviously weren't there. After trying to contact you through phone calls, WhatsApp messages an emails, but not receiving any answer you officially became a "No Show" By the time you realised your mistake we had already made substantial costs, and refused other bookings as that departure was officially fully booked. As per the refund policy you agreed with, you lost your right to a refund the moment you were not at the agreed pick up time. The dates that you had hoped to book are the busiest days of the year, and had sold out by the time you became aware of the mistake. To rebook you on those days would have required overbooking a tour and compromising my dogs resting days and welfare. I am not prepared to compromise my dogs wellbeing for your mistake. Knowing that it is extremely difficult to find a husky tour during the period that you really intended to travel we kindly offered you a ride with our dog teams at Santa Village. You have not contacted us back about that, and consider them "dinky". However the monetary value of that tour would be close to 150€ for your group. That's the equivalent of 25% of the value of your initial booking. Considering that this was completely your mistake, no longer tours where available on days you actually traveled and that by our published cancellation policy you where not entitled to any refund or rebooking at all, I believe this to more than fair, and definitely not deserving of a 1 star review. As a final word I would like to note that for a booking as expensive as this it would be wise to check that the details of the booking are correct. It would have saved both you and me a lot of grief.
