Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive at Kuusamo (or Oulu) airport where you will be met and transferred to the hotel. Introduction to the hotel and programme. Dinner and possibility of a sauna and swim. Overnight at hotel.

Day 2

After breakfast transfer to husky kennels (15 mins) for introduction to the huskies and safety and mushing lesson. Everyone gets warm outer clothing (overalls, boots, mitts. Hats) for the coming adventure. Now you are ready for your first husky drive. Everyone drives their own dog team. During the trip you will stop and have lunch around an open fire. In the afternoon you arrive back at the farm and take care of the dogs. Coffee and then transfer back to hotel for sauna and dinner. It is possible to book an evening snowmobile safari.

Day 3

After breakfast transfer to husky kennels. This time you need a small overnight bag for your night in the wilderness cabin. Help harness the dogs – and by now you start to feel you know what to do. Stop for lunch en-route. Dinner and sauna at the wilderness cabin after you have fed the dogs and lit the wood fires to warm everyone up. This cabin is a good place for stars and northern lights if the skies are clear.

Day 4

After feeding the dogs and having a hearty breakfast, it is time to go off on your final day of your adventure. By now you will be getting used to handling your team of dogs and sled and they will be getting to know your voice too and will (may!) obey your commands. This is a really good feeling. Again you will stop (weather permitting) and have lunch around the campfire. Later in the afternoon you will arrive back at the husky kennels and help put your team back into their kennels. Tea/coffee at the kennels and then your 15 minute transfer back to your hotel awaits. Perhaps for a sauna and a swim before dinner. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 5

After breakfast, transfer to the airport. We hope with happy memories and nice pictures.
