Thanks to the versatile winter sports activities offered in this area, there is always something fun to do. During the day and in the evening. Wonderfully cozy and busy if you look for it, breathtakingly beautiful and quiet if you choose.

The structure & approach of this trip

We will not immediately throw you into the deep end upon arrival. We will first take you on a shorter husky experience. Here you will have your first contact with the sled dogs and you will have a pleasant experience of what it is like to go out with a dog sled for the first time. Only when you have gotten used to the Arctic conditions do we start 'the real work' and go deep into the woods with your own team. Everything under the guidance of an experienced guide. Fun, exciting, spicy and in a truly different world.

1st day Amsterdam - Helsinki - Kuusamo - Ruka
With a transfer in Helsinki you fly from Amsterdam to Kuusamo, Finnish Lapland. Here you will receive your rental car and drive the last part yourself, to Ruka. There is a good chance that it will already be dark when you drive this part. Nice and exciting and especially keep an eye out for the reindeer that just cross the road.

Arrive at your Hotel
We use a centrally located hotel. Your room has its own sauna and you have a delicious breakfast every morning. Is not it nice.

The Northern Lights are everywhere - The bonus of this trip
Who knows, you might be 'received' by the northern lights when you get out on the first evening. We have been that lucky before. A very special extra when that happens. Take a good look around! Because you have a rental car, you also have the opportunity to undertake a Northern Lights safari on your own. You simply drive away from the village, away from all the artificial lights, looking for a higher or more secluded spot. Bring something tasty and possibly... a thermos with some tea.

Experience the husky safari with all your senses
You will never-ever-forget the two-day trip with your own husky team. We can give you that guarantee right now. This tour is absolutely unique and offers you the best opportunity to enjoy a husky tour to the fullest.

Adventure in the Arctic Wilderness

Your introduction to the husky is mainly focused on exactly that: Getting to know each other. With the cheerful, playful and strong husky, with the principle of standing on the dog sled, operating the brakes, giving commands and having fun on a dog sled ride. This is different on the two-day experience. That's where you really get to work. You help with all activities such as feeding, exercising, preparing and, above all, you take care of the huskies. Also on the road during breaks and after arrival. You will go out with a very experienced Musher who knows all the tricks of mushing. In this profession nothing is self-evident, everything is based on mutual respect between the husky and the musher. Only perfect teamwork guarantees a safe and good journey through such a ' hostile environment ' as the Arctic forests in winter. The guide, the experienced huskies, the group & your own efforts guarantee your safety during those two days.

Husky Safari - mushing

On this husky tour you are the musher and part of your own team. This means that you are also responsible for your dogs. You can of course always cuddle them, but you should especially pay attention to their health . Before the ride, during the ride and especially after the ride, it is always and without exception: The dogs come first.

Reindeer sleigh ride

Reindeer have traditionally been the animals that pull the sled in the winter. Reindeer are the best choice, especially when the snow is really high. You will go on a tour through the ancient forests. Afterwards there will be time to cuddle the reindeer and take photos. We end the tour with a BBQ and eat sausages and snacks in the hut.

Thanks to the rental car you are particularly flexible. This is one of the big differences compared to an 'organized package trip to a Resort'. Go to Kuusamo at your own pace for a day of shopping, shopping or a visit to Santa Claus in Pohjolan Kievari . In the evenings you can use the car to find a quiet spot 'hunting' for the Northern Lights.

Husky & Northern Lights

With our own Siberian husky 'Moscow' in Finnish Lapland under a beautiful starry sky and with beautiful northern lights. The appearances of the Northern Lights are often short and sometimes intense. Such moments are etched in your memory. The luck that you can take such a photo with your mobile phone is wonderful.

Towards Russian border

Together with the guide we prepare the sleds and the huskies and discuss the route. You will have your own team of 4 to 6 dogs, depending on your own weight. The dogs start very energetically and find their tour rhythm after a while. Over frozen lakes and deep snow-covered forests we head towards the Russian border.

Wilderness Lodge

During your two-day husky safari you will spend the night in this rustic wilderness lodge, very close to the Russian border. Along the way you may have already seen the 'old man's beard' hanging on the trees, a lichen that hangs in the shape of a beard from the branches of the trees. This only occurs in regions with particularly clean air. Waking up here and taking a step outside is, as the English say, 'priceless'

    Make fire
