During our walk along the nature paths in Ounasvaara hill we enjoyed the peaceful setting right next to the city centre of Rovaniemi. It is always very easy to spend time with Marja, the conversations vary from different cultures and habits to everyday living in Lapland. Unna the Gordon Setter loves beign in the forest and is easy to get acquainted with.
All in all, an experience I’m happy to repeat over and over again!
Fantastic Family Trip!
We booked a private trip with the huskies for ourselves and our 5 and 6 year olds. We were picked up at our hotel by Aksana and driven to their home and husky farm next to a stunning frozen lake surrounded by snow covered trees. There were 8 huskies (4 per sleigh) and we were shown how to drive the sleighs, with children wrapped up warm inside. Antti and Aksana came with us on their snowmobile and made sure we were OK on several occasions during the hour and we covered around 8kms on the lake.
The place was magical and it was a great experience. Part way round, we had some warming hot berry tea.
Once back at the house, the children had a chance to cuddle the huskies and cat and we were offered hot drinks and crisps with homemade salmon dip followed with delicious homemade Finnish pancakes and jams. This was such a wonderful way to see the area and a great way for the children to meet the animals. We would definitely recommend this.
