Husky & reindeer

 

PLEASE NOTE,  Husky and reindeer safaris are really popular and during the high season and the availability for each departure changes quickly.  Because our reindeer and husky tours are no mass tourism but small family business, that is why we can not sell them online for every day or departure, but please inquire availabilty per email or phone - we still have places for almost all days, but times may be different from the normal departure times 

 

REINDEER RIDE

We drive with a car (8 km) to the reindeer farm of the sami family, where we – dressed up in warm clothing – will step in sleighs pulled by a reindeer. Sitting cozy and warm between the reindeer furs we drive reindeers following our guide, the reindeer herder. Enjoy the absolute quietness, which only the tinkling of a reindeer bell can break! The reindeer herder invites us for coffee in his cottage, the restful ride with reindeers and the friendly hospitality of these sincere Lapps is an unforgettable Lappish experience, you will learn about Sami culture and reindeer herding. Duration of the trip with transfers approx. 2 -2,5 hours (reindeer driving approx. 1h). Minimum 2 persons. Price 110 € per person.

BARK OF THE HUSKIES

We dress up warmly at the safari office and drive to the husky farm, where we meet the young couple, Sini and Ossi whose cute huskies are already eagerly waiting for the day’s exercise. After the driving school we step in pairs on the sleighs – one sitting in front as a passanger and one standing and driving the team of 6 to 8 dogs. Pairs will take turns in driving as the huskies happily take us through the winter landscape.
