Tour Details

Lapland Husky Adventure: Stunning scenery in this remote and beautiful region Lapland.  Great hosts, good food, lovely dogs, private trails.  6 days, 5 nights, 4 days on safari with your dog team.  Lake side cottage and wilderness cabin base. 

During the 4 day husky tour you will drive through the changing beautiful landscapes of the Pallas-Ylläs National Park in North-West Lapland. Your trails will go through birch, spruce and pine forests and along open moorland, and across the frozen lakes. You drive your team of huskies up the Lappish fells and through fairy tale like woodlands with snow covered trees with their branches bending under the heavy snow. Some parts of the National Park have been voted as one of the most beautiful landscapes in Finland.

In a short time you will get to know your dogs. After spending the days on the trail together and after looking after them the four-legged friends learn to trust you and you learn to trust them – a special kind team spirit!

Your nights are spent in a lakeside cottage and in a beautiful log cabin in the wilderness camp by a frozen lake. At the camp there is also a sauna building and a tepee style timber “Kota” kitchen where the meals are served by an open fire. Meals are delicious Finnish home cooking. Most diets are catered for if you let us know in advance.

Itinerary

Day 1Sunday

Arrive at Kittilä airport late afternoon and transfer to your lakeside cottage (dinner at cottage or kennels ‘kota’). If you arrive on an earlier flight there is an airport shuttle bus to Levi (not included). Transfers from later flights may take you directly to the cottage.

Day 2Monday

After breakfast you will transfer to the husky kennels. Here you will meet your friendly huskies and be given warm, high quality thermal outer clothing. 

Your guide will give you instructions, tips and advice on sledge driving before helping to harness the dog teams up and head out for the first drive. Enjoy restful stops during the day where the guide will make a fire and you can enjoy some lunch. After lunch it is back out on the trail, arriving in the afternoon back at the kennels to look after the dogs and have your evening meal in the ‘kota’ before transferring to the cottage. The cottage has electricity and showers with lounge, kitchen, sauna and 2 shared bedrooms.

Day 3Tuesday

Today you will drive your team of huskies (around 30 to 45km) through the scenery of the beautiful region to the wilderness cabin. Lunch breaks again are by an open fire or in a small hut. In the evening, enjoy the sauna and warm water in the pot will be provided for washing. When the daily wilderness chores are done you and the guide meet in the Kota for a home cooked evening meal and chat about your day.

Day 4Wednesday

Today you will spend the whole day touring the area and return back to the wilderness cabin again. The evening has the same routine as Wednesday – except perhaps now you might feel as though you know what you are doing…. 🙂

Day 5Thursday

Today is another day on the trail with your husky team, returning this time to the lakeside cottage via the kennels to take the dogs back their homes and to have a dinner in the ‘kota’ at the kennels.

Please note: extreme weather could affect the itinerary

Day 6Friday

Home journey begins after breakfast. For early flights there is a direct transfer to the airport. In case the flight is later the transfer to Levi is around midday. There is a good shuttle bus service from Levi to the airport.
