On this tour you speed through snow-white forests, over hills and across frozen lakes and swamps driving your own husky sledge. After a “training day” you set off for a 4-day hut-to-hut wilderness safari.
Each participants gets an own husky sledge pulled by four legged friends that are born to run and more than willing to take you for a ride daily. During the hut-to-hut safari you accommodate in cozy and warm wilderness cabins without electricity. In the evenings you will enjoy meals together with many sagas and relax in the traditional Finnish sauna.
This program is suitable for people who really like huskies and outdoor life. You will spend 5 days with huskies so in the end of the week you really know your own team and may find a musher inside you! The maximum group size is 6 persons so you can enjoy the tour with a small like-minded group.
