Our joyful, friendly Siberian Huskies are happy to give you a ride through the glittering snow!

In our kennel area we can offer visitors in addition to experiences:

Our services are almost completely accessible. If you are looking for a husky experience and You have a mobility restriction, please read more about accessibility.

Winter temperatures in Finland are typically below zero and it might be windy, especially by the sea. Although our sleds are equipped with warm hides, we recommend wearing warm winter clothes as for any other winter sport. You can best protect yourself in the traditional way by wearing two or three layers of warm clothes under a windproof jacket and trousers. The best winter boots are long and warm. Remember to wear a warm hat and gloves!

Our huskies know how to enjoy the snow and they love running. Let our huskies offer you the experience of a lifetime exploring the winter wonderland!

Unfortunately, we will not take new reservations for husky rides in the spring of 2022

Candlelight dinner for two – the Finnish way

A romantic Arctic experience for couples. We start with a hot welcome drink and getting to know our friendly huskies in the fire-lit kennel. We harness the teams together, and after a short introduction in the handling of the team, it’s time to explore the arctic blue darkness of the ancient spruce forest.

Mushing a team of huskies in the magical atmosphere of blue darkness and soft white snow is an unforgettable experience. Husky sled is one of the most ancient means of transport, and the quiet of the sleeping forest creates an intimate atmosphere. When we return to the kennel and say good night to the dogs, a delicious dinner is cooked for you on open fire in the kammi.

For the menu, we recommend, for example, salmon cooked on open fire or reindeer stew. Our menus always include a variety of organic and local ingredients, and true to the spirit of our family business, products of Nature, such as spruce tips or wild forest berries,kammi
