2019! 3-day Husky safari with extra activities in Lapland

2019! 3-day Husky safari with extra activities in Lapland

Two days next to the eastern border with activities and three days with your own husky team in the wilderness!. Wide space, relaxing silence and numerous islands of lake Inari. Words are hardly enough to describe the feeling. After the tour great food at hotel Kultahovi and possibly some entertainment last night.

Nellim wilderness hotel  is located by the 3rd biggest lake of Finland, lake Inari. The Nellim village is in the south-eastern end of the lake, 45 kilometres east of Ivalo. Nellim has ten aurora bubbles, glass igloos, which offer a unique way to watch at the northern lights safe and warm through the night from your bed. 

In spring the days are getting longer and the sun shines more and more often. During the days you can ski on the Inari lake or on ski tracks.

Activities:

Snowshoe tour  (4h) allows you to enter the snowy forest and get up to the hills to see the Nellim village and the wide open views of lake Inari. Snowshoeing is easy but gives you a good deal of exercise. Light lunch and warm drinks by an open fire are included.

Snowmobiling safari to a reindeer farm  (5h)  leads you further away on the frozen lake. First you will have a snowmobiling lesson and get instructions how to handle this powerful machine. After you feel comfortable with driving, it is time to go and drive to a reindeer farm, where you will have a short reindeer sleigh ride. You will also learn, how winter fishing takes place. You will see the beauty of northern nature and landscape. Your guides will tell you about life in the wilderness. Picnic lunch is included in the tour. 

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. 

Village of Inari  is the center of Finnish Sámi people. This will be your first destination. The Sami people (or Lapps)  are indigenous people living in the northernmost areas of Finland, Norway, Sweden and Kola peninsula of Russia. In order to get a better understanding of the area, where you are traveling, we have included in this package a visit to the Sámi museum Siida. In Inari you will also see the Sámi parliament of Finland called Sajos as you will walk by on your way to Siida .
