Activity Dog sleigh ride

Take a sleigh ride for example in Tankavaara!

Dog sleigh ride

The wonderland of Lapland looks even more enchanting than usual when you travel by dog-drawn sleigh. Get into a warm sleigh and let the handsome, hardworking dogs whisk you through the silent marsh landscape and the snow-wrapped spruce forests. A sleigh is the perfect vantage point to take in the landscape and its atmosphere. The dogs are also very photogenic.

Did you know? Dog teams have been used as a form of transport in the Arctic areas for millennia. When you get in a sleigh you can let your mind wander back in time and imagine what it all looked and felt like in days gone by.

Both independent travellers and groups can go on dog-drawn sleigh rides. Dog-drawn sleigh rides are organised in Pyhä-Luosto and Tankavaara Gold Village.
