Private Husky Safari in northernmost Lapland

Private Husky Safari in northernmost Lapland

Breathtaking views to be expected in the northernmost Lapland. First a trial husky safari in Ivalo, then heading further north to Utsjoki by border river Teno (or Tana river as the Norwegians say). Your 3-day sledge dog safari takes place on the other side of the border in Norway reaching out to the Arctic Sea.

Destinations:

1) Ivalo is a small village next to the airport. Your tour starts by a 4h sledge-dog safari here. As this is a trial you will share a team of huskies and learn the techniques also by watching. 

2) Utsjoki  is located by the Teno river, which the Norwegians call Tana. The river valley offers breathtaking views both sides. You will stay in a small, family owned hotel with only 11 rooms. We did not book any evening activities as you might feel tired after the trial husky safari and even more so after 3 days mushing. The idea is to offer you good food and comfortable bed here.

3) Tana Bro  is the start place for you 3-day husky safari. On this safari each person gets their own team of huskies and will take care of her/his dogs throughout the safari. You will first have lunch and get to know your wilderness guide and owner of this farm with 40 well-trained dogs. By evening you will arrive to a wilderness cabin used by a reindeer herder. This cabin has no running water but it is warm and charming in its own way. Next day you will be mushing all day reaching the Arctic sea and staying overnight in a seaside cabin. This cabin is more comfortable. On third day you will head back to the husky farm and arrive there by lunch time. You will return by taxi to Utsjoki.  

4) Inari  is the centre of the Sámi culture in Lapland. This is, where the Sámi parliament Siida is located as well as the Sámi museum Siida. You will have time to visit them both. We also suggest you to take an evening snowshoeing out of the village and a 3-hour winter fishing tour with a local fisherman Jarmo. He'll teach you, how to catch fish by jigging through a hole in the ice and by nets under the ice.  Your hotel Kultahovi has a white-listed restaurant Aanaar, where you can end your tour enjoying Lappish gourmet food. 

What do we promise? An unforgettable tour through the northernmost Lapland to the Arctic Sea for a group of 4 to 6 people together.
