In the day time driving your own dog team through the snowy wilderness, enjoying lunch around the open fire and spending a night in a wilderness cabin*.

This is one of the most snowy areas in Finnish Lapland. It belongs to Taiga forest area which means very beautiful snowy trees like the shape of candles in mid-winter time. Also northern lights are often seen here. The guides here have run husky tours for over 20 years. Meals during safaris are mainly local, traditional food like reindeer and local fish. Special diets are catered for.

Great intro to dog sledding.  Comfortable hotel for first and last nights, then enjoy a 2 day safari staying one night in a wilderness cabin.  Friendly guides, fast terrain, good homemade local food make this a great trip.  Option of 3 nights at hotel with day husky safaris.

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

Today you pack up all your gear and start your 2 day safari. After a short transfer to the Husky kennels where you will prepare to drive your team of dogs to the wilderness cabin, perhaps stopping for lunch over an open fire. The cabin will soon be warm and cosy heated by a large wood fire. On arrival you take care of the dogs first and then you look after yourselves and lighting the fires in the cabin and sauna before relaxing a little with coffee and snacks. Enjoy a sauna and dinner in the evening. Possibility of ice fishing.

Day 3

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 farm and then your 15 minute transfer back to your hotel awaits. Perhaps for a sauna and a swim before a farewell dinner with the guides. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 4

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