We joined the Call of the Wild-tour - two hours in the wonderful nature near Rovaniemi with some very energetic dogs who definitely enjoyed to run an always barked impatiently, when we stopped for a short moment. We choose to share one sledge for two persons, so I was a passenger in the sledge at first and the driver standing behind afterwards. In my opinion, this is the best choice, as you get both experiences. You will get warm outer clothing, but should wear warm stuff underneath nevertheless, as you don't move much as a passenger and it might be windy. And of course, we got a good instruction from Valentine, our tour guide, how to steer the sledge and consider the needs of the dogs. This was great fun and something completely different to the things, I have done before! :D After the tour we petted the huskys and and visited the puppies. Finally, we went into a cosy hut with a BBQ-fire in the middle, grilled some sausages and heard some wisdom about huskys from Valentine. It was a great experience!

I did the call of the wild morning tour with solo driving. I would totally recommend bearhillhusky! The communication was really good, we asked if it would be possible to do the taiga tour in December and arrangements could be made for that, unfortunately, because of the weather we had to do a shorter tour, but it was communicated on time and if I had questions they were answered within a day! You can really see that they all love the dogs very much and that the dogs have an enjoyable life! We were picked up on time at our hotel (the ice hotel), which was very easy and only a short ride. The instructions given beforehand were clear and explained well and in a serious yet funny way. Overall a really nice experience and I would do it again!

Good afternoon, Thank you for your kind words. We pride ourselves on being as open and honest with communication as possible, and are all passionate about our work and the dogs at the kennel - we are glad this showed through on your tour. We hope we can welcome you back again when we have slightly colder and better weather conditions so you can finally enjoy the Taiga tour :-) Bearhill Husky

Wonderful experience, it was for sure the highlights of my holidays. I hope to come back again. The host was amazing and talked with so much passion. I wish the experience were a bit longer, so I could hear more about his stories and to learn with him. Everything was perfect unless at the bus transfer from Rovaniemi there was this man at the front seat (not the driver, the driver was really nice), who was really rude about the use of mask (coronavirus restrictions). It's easier just to ask to people to wear mask, and not yell at people to put it on. Also 'if you don't have mask, you can not come', it's not good for the business, there are many ways to cover the face. Good luck for 2021

Good afternoon, Thank you for your kind words regarding your time at the kennel - it was an absolutely pleasure to have you with us. We are only sorry that your experience during the transfer was a little negative due to other customers. We are living in strange times at the moment with the Corona virus. We wish you a happy new year! Bearhill Husky

This was a really fun and unique experience to get to ride a husky sledge, and it was worth going out from the city a bit to the kennel and deeper forest. The kennel has mainly Alaskan huskies. The 30 min tour passed so quickly that we paid on the spot to do another tour for 45min - if you're a bit adventurous I recommend a bit of a longer ride. Warm outer suits and boots are provided. The staff is all very nice and during the snack time there is a chance to ask questions which is very informative and I learned a lot. We were picked up and dropped off from our guesthouse in Rovaniemi as we didn't have a car. Highly recommend!
