Tour Details

Husky Safari Lapland: Come and enjoy this wonderful safari in the beautiful winter scenery in remote Northern Lapland. Drive your own dog-sled team of 4-6 dogs. The daily distances are between 25 and 40 kilometres, depending on the groups’ ability and the weather conditions during the safari. During the rest periods you can admire the untouched naturally beautiful landscape which is all around you. You can take photographs, or just let the silence surround you.

Follow trails into ancient arctic forests on the edge of the National Park Pallas-Ylläs, through swamps, over fells and frozen lakes. Breathing the cleanest air of Europe and listening to the sounds of silence only “disturbed” by the running paws in the snow. Spending the nights in wilderness cabins without electricity and running water, making fire to warm up and taking care of your own dogs will make your wilderness experience complete. Challenging but rewarding.

A superb late season safari to the far northwest of Lapland.  Drive your own team of huskies up to 300km, weather permitting.  Upon request for 2 or more persons in March.

Dates: Husky Safari Lapland runs from every Sunday of the season (December – April) until the following Saturday. Please contact us with your preferred dates for availability at info@huskyholidays.co.uk
