Private husky safari to the Arctic Sea 10.-17.2.

Private husky safari to the Arctic Sea 10.-17.2.

Breathtaking views to be expected in the northernmost Lapland.  Your 3-day sledge dog safari takes place on the other side of the border in Norway reaching out to the Arctic Sea.You will then return to Finland and enjoy the hospitality of two small hotels with great locations. 

Destinations:

1) 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 both on your way to the husky farm and on your way back to Ivalo region.The idea is to offer you time to relax,  good food and comfortable bed here on both ways. Therefore we did not include any guided outdoor tours here, just rental equipment (cross-country skies or snowshoes) for self-guided sports and a Lappish hut dinner with traditional Sámi dinner. 

2) 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.  

3) Tankavaara  Gold Village is known as the gate to the gold mining district of Lapland. It is located next to the UKK National Park, where trees typically a very heavsy snow-load and the forest looks like a fairy-tale forest. In order to get in the forest, we suggest you to take a short 7km husky ride two sharing (156e/person) and/or just a snowshoe trip 1,5h (54€/person). These both are included now in order to keep you busy but would work also without husky just renting snowshoes for the second day.
