Winter 2017-2018! 3-day Husky safari in northernmost Lapland

Winter 2017-2018! 3-day Husky safari in northernmost Lapland

The Alaskan huskies  are friendly, social and active dogs, which are very eager to run and pull the sledge. They like working! 

Sled-dog ride  is a great way to experience the Lappish nature in winter. In mid-winter, when it is dark outside and you are using headlamps, it is really exciting. In spring, when it is really bright and white outside, it is really enjoyable. For the overnight safari you'll get your own sledge pulled by 4-5 huskies, which means you get to mush your team the whole time and train your skills in mushing in many ways. in many kinds of terrains.

The route traverses variable terrain and gives you a possibility to enjoy beautiful Lappish landscape. After a few hours you will notice that  fresh air and all the excitement have made you hungry and you'll welcome a lunch break by open fire. Afetr the lunch dog teams are eager to continue and later on your will arrive at the wilderness cottage. After arrival the dogs are taken care first by you and the guide together, which is highly appreciated your hard-working friends. Only after that it is time to prepare dinner and get a good and tight sleep in the warmth of the cabin and a sleeping bag.

On the second day you will make a day tour from the wilderness cabin on lake Inari  and its islands. The vast wilderness lake offers great views of wide open space, numerous islands and relaxing silence.
