Daily & Weekly Departures Winter

We are proud to introduce our guests to the arctic lifestyle, regardless of how short or long your stay is. Our aim is to give our guests “a piece of local ambiance” to carry in their memories. Our daily departures of Lapland lifestyle safaris and excursions give you a taste of the north, wether you are traveling with your family, friends or as a couple.

Two hours Husky safari

2 hrs husky-safari 
Daily departures at 10:00 and 14:00

Are you ready for a mini-adventure into the beautiful winter nature?

A short transfer takes you to Lumi Husky Camp, where the enthusiastic arctic sled dogs greet you with barking and jumping - as if they were saying, come on, let's go. Huskies are passionate about running and that is why they are eager to take off with you in their sledge. But first things first: instructions on safety and driving. You and a friend are sharing a team of huskies and can take turns in mushing (driving) and being a passenger.

The route of 10-12 km (depending on weather and snow conditions as well as driving skills) takes you through an enchanted winter landscape. There will be stops when you can change places as musher and passenger. You will also have some photogenic moments midst the stunning nature and with the beautiful dogs. Once they have ran off some energy, they are calmer and let you enjoy the silent drive.

Back at the farm we will gather around the camp fire to hear the mushers tell about life with huskies. You will of course also have time to cuddle and pat your newfound friends before it is time to leave the husky farm.
