Experience the Arctic Expedition

 

Husky experiences are organized all year around.  Our beautiful Siberian Huskies are excited to pull you through the Finnish forests. You can select from these exciting sled dog riding activities:


Arctic Husky Hike

Arctic Expedition

Glimpse of Arctic

Arctic Husky Ride


If you wish a more individual ride through the forests with only you and your loved ones, you’d enjoy Arctic Expedition. You can select from 3, 2 or 1-hour rides. Snack or special coffee is included. You’ll enjoy it by the fire in 3 or 2-hour versions.


Our introductory Arctic experience is called Glimpse of Arctic, in which each person drives a short circuit on a meadow. It is organized only during limited time slots.


When there’s snow, our huskies will pull you with a dog sled. You’ll enjoy the ride sitting on a dog cart (=sort of a sled with wheels) or a kickbike, when there is not enough snow. Usually the snow comes early January.
