Husky safaris are the ultimate ‘must-try’ activity for anyone visiting the Nordic Countries and feature in many of our trip itineraries. This holiday takes things to the next level, letting you experience three days of dog sledding through pristine wilderness environments, much like professional mushers do on a regular basis.
You will take responsibility for your very own sled and a pack of around four to five huskies. As you look after and feed these marvellous animals, you will form a close bond with them. Making your way together through the outdoors, you will cover around 50 kilometres on the first and third day, and around 30 kilometres on the second day. The frozen waters and islands of Lake Inari will provide a spectacular backdrop for your dog sledding journeys.
The first and last nights of this four-night holiday will be spent at Hotel Ivalo. During the two nights of the husky safari, you will stay in a wilderness cabin run by the dedicated Guesthouse Husky team. Leave everyday comforts behind and try your hand at some rather different skills, like collecting water from a frozen lake and heating up a traditional sauna. While the facilities will be simple, the experience will be extraordinary.
