3-day Husky safari with a night in an ice suite

3-day Husky safari with a night in an ice suite

Ivalo  is located in the northernmost Lapland, in the aurora zone, where northern lights are seen throughout the winter season. You will stay your first night in a new part of a village hotel facing the river Ivalo very close to the husky farm so that you can sleep well adn have time to enjoy a proper breakfast before leaving. 

Small group sled-dog safari  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 a long 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. On this safari each person takes care for his/her own team of huskies. The group size is usually 8 people.

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. 

Saariselkä ski village  is 30 minutes south from Ivalo. The Northern Lights village is next to Saariselkä on the other side of the main road so it is not quite in any wilderness area or totally out of illumination. they have had glass igloos and for this season they are opening up an ice restaurant and a small snow hotel. This is however far from the Kemi snowcastle in size but rooms are similar to all the ice hotels. In each room there figures and decorations carved in ice. As this year will be their first, there are no proper pictures available.
