Be a Musher! Husky Safaris in Pure Nature

Try the life of a musher for yourself! You will learn to ride your sled, have your own husky team and work together with these great friends. We start on easy terrain across the lake and continue to the forest. On the way, you can enjoy the winter wilderness. The ride is about 25 km long, depending on the weather and your skills. Total duration: 3 to 4 hours

On this tour you will get to experience how to handle a team of sled dogs, and to be a part of that team. You can choose to drive together with a friend, one sitting in the sled and one driving, or with a single sled. Either way, it will be a joyful ride. Keep your hands in the handbar and mush!

Northern Lights – Eagle-Eye View

What better way to see the Northern Lights than from the very sky where they occur? We will transfer you from your hotel or accommodation to the airport, where a plane awaits to take you on an experience that not many get to try. The airplane is equipped for instrumental flight, has an anti-icing system, and carries seven passengers. The flights are conducted with a flight crew of two pilots. Flight time is around 1 hour, including takeoff and landing preparations. After landing, we transfer you back to your hotel.

Patvinsuo National Park

Scanning the open marshes of Patvinsuo, you might be lucky enough to see a distant bear, though bears typically do their best to avoid people. Atop the viewing towers, you can admire the changing marshlands on misty autumn mornings, light summer nights, or in the springtime, when birds flock to the bogs to feed and breed. After a nice walk, take a cooling dip by the sandy shores or the lakeside sauna at Suomunjärvi.

Full Day Husky Safari

Mush your own team of Alaskan huskies through the snowy wilderness. When you arrive at Husky Ranch, you'll be greeted by your guide and Juho, one of the ranch's owners. You will be driving your own sleds pulled by 3–5 dogs. The trail first heads south of the Kurtakko village through hills and forests, then you take a peek at Europe’s largest wetland, the majestic Teuravuoma. At the halfway point it's time to have a delicious lunch by the open fire! When the break is over, it's time to take a scenic route back to the kennel, where you can say goodbye to your furry friends!
