For those who want to travel in what is both a time-honoured and wonderfully fun manner, our husky safari trips are ideal. With it being one of the most popular activities in Lapland, the majority of our trips include a husky safari in one form or another, but the below trips take this one step further, with days on the trail and nights in the wilderness, all with a team of eager dogs to lead the way.
As you navigate your dogs across frozen lakes, forested fells and snow-laden landscapes, you will be able to fully immerse yourself in the wonderful Arctic scenery and really get back to basics. The joy of journeying by husky is that you really do get the chance to enjoy the serene isolation of the untouched terrain. The dogs will soon settle into a steady pace and the silence of the wilds will be broken only by the gentle whisper of the sled’s runners and the footfalls of the dogs’ paws on the snow.
The majority of our husky safari holidays include overnight stays in basic cabins. These are usually without electricity and running water, but as soon as your dinner is cooking over the fire and you have warmed yourself in the sauna after a long day’s mushing, you will soon see the charm of these hideaways. A benefit of being this far from civilisation is that the light pollution is non-existent, so the chances of a fantastic Aurora sighting are further increased.
Each person is responsible for their own team of dogs throughout these trips, allowing you to comprehend the fundamental bond between dog and musher – a truly unforgettable experience.
