This was our 2nd time to Powerun. From arriving until the moment we left the whole experience was truly fantastic. We were greeted by Riku who took us to the huskies. We went on a magical 10km ride through breathtaking scenery. Riku then showed us round introducing the dogs and puppies and showing us the kennels and how the dogs are cared for. We sat in a hut with log fire, hot berry juice, gingerbread and pastries and hearing the incredible stories of the races Riku has competed in. All of the dogs are so well looked after that is clear to see. The whole experience was incredible and personal as we were the only group of 7 there. Can’t recommend Powerun enough. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Lapland.

It was too cold for the dogs in the morning (-37 C) so we were postponed (great concern for the welfare of the dogs) until the afternoon. After a quick briefing and safety talk we were kitted up and a group of 3 sleds sped off across the snow. Amazing scenery and varied terrain enabled you to get a good feel for how a longer sled would feel (we took the 2 hour tour). You could help take the dogs off the harnesses which is more difficult when your dog is young and still learning and you have 3 pairs of gloves on... Followed off with warm pastries and drinks by the fire this is HIGHLY recommended. Can't wait to come back!

Pre booked this excursion with our hotel Yllashumina which was a 15 minute drive from our hotel into the middle of a huge forest of high heavy snow laden trees. Once at the farm which is very well kept, modern yet fits perfectly into its surroundings. To start you are shown how to control the sleigh which is very simple and easy to do. The dogs are very noisy and just want to run and run and run....... Once kitted up, I advise you bring inner and out gloves, goggles, Balaclava or similar like a gator. If you want to video a GoPro on a head band is best as it is very cold and taking your gloves off to operate a smart phone at 30km an hour is not recommended. There are two types of sleigh, individual and pair. The latter, one person drives while the other sits wrapped in furs. The drive is about 20 km with a half way swop to change over driver / passenger. The route consist of cross country, up hill and down Dale, twists rising and falling trails, with open areas across frozen lakes and swamps. The dogs keep running on and on and on never tiring, always wanting to go faster and faster. Once back at the husky camp you help to unleash the dogs after which they are feed and watered. Then it’s our turn as you all enter a wood cabin with a huge log fire for mhot blueberry juice and home made snacks and learn about the dogs and their welfare which is at a very high standard. All in all it was a great experience being close to nature and interacting with the dogs.

We were welcomed by sanna, a lovely woman, who teached us first how to use the sled. Then we went over to the dogs. They were al very excited to work!!! The dogs look incredible, very well looked after. We did a 20 k tour and sanna checked on us regurarly. After the tour we had a hot berry juich at the fire.

Thus was our fourth dog sled outing and definitely the best. The owners were very friendly and the dogs well looked after. They clearly just love to run. After a quick check on our clothes with ‘top ups’ where needed, we were briefed on the sleds and introduced to our dogs. We were quickly on our way. The route took us through forests, across swamps and up and down low fells. It was picturesque but also sufficiently challenging. After a couple of hours, we stopped for a spot of lunch (dogs first, of course) and then returned to the farm, where we helped unharness the dogs. I loved the way they all knew where they lived and went straight to their pens (where they were fed). This is the place I’ll return to next time!
