Huskies and more

On a safari in Saariselkä There are 140 huskies living in our farm. Most of them are Alaskan huskies which are accompanied by some Siberian huskies. Huskies are friendly, social and active dogs which happily welcome you to meet them. There is no need for bad conscience when joining a husky safari, huskies love to run and enjoy their work! You can learn more about these beautiful animals during a husky safari. Starting from our farm in Ivalo we arrange several kind of guided tours with huskies. You can choose from shorter day tours of 1-6 hours or join an overnight tour with one or more nights in a wilderness cabin. During the shorter day tours (1-4 hours), two guests share one sledge which is pulled by 6-7 huskies. For an extra fee, you can have your own team during these trips as well. On whole day tours and on overnight trips every participant has an own husky team to mush. The number of dogs in the team depends on the size of the guest and varies between 3-5 huskies.

Our husky tours are organized without snowmobile assistance as on our safaris even the tour guides are driving with huskies.

Conquering the legendary Inari Lake with huskies, overnight tours
Do you want to conquer the frozen Inari Lake, enjoy its wide open space and the overwhelming silence of the wilderness? During these tours we stay overnight in our wilderness cabin on an island of Inari Lake. Driving distance to the wilderness cabin is ca. 50 km one way, so our guests are able to enjoy hours of mushing with our well-trained huskies. On overnight tours every guest has an own husky team. Please note that there might be changes in the route and program due to the weather, snow and ice conditions or due to other safety issues. Driving distances given are advisable, but might change if circumstances are difficult – huskies are eager runners, but they are not machines!
