Experience the beauty of the Lapland nature and the magic of winter light on our husky safari tour. Come and enjoy our fascinating dog-sled safari in the beautiful winter scenery in the Northwest of Lapland. Drive your own dog-sled team of 4-6 dogs. The daily distances are between 15 and 25 mi., depending on your own health and the weather conditions during the safari. During the rest periods you can admire the untouched naturally beautiful landscape which is all around you. You can take photographs, or just let the silence surround you. Overnight stays in simple but cozy huts with sauna, but without shower, toilet and electricity. You take care of your dog team and help to prepare the meals together. Breakfast and dinner are prepared in the huts, the light lunch by open fire in the wilderness.

Arrival at Kittilä airport and transfer to Muonio - Harriniva Holiday Centre (approx. 1 hour). Meet up with the safari group and information about the program for the week. Dinner and overnight in cozy double rooms at the Harriniva Hotel.


After breakfast you will be provided with the safari equipment. You will meet the dogs, pack the sleds and you will be taught how to handle the sled. Start of the safari. We will spend the next 4 nights in wilderness huts.

Day 2-6 HUSKY SAFARI (B, L, D)

The safari will take you through the beautiful winter scenery close to the Pallas-Ounas National Park in West Lapland. Overnight stays in simple yet cozy huts with sauna, but without shower, WC and electricity. You will look after your dog team and help with preparing the meals together. Breakfast and dinner will be prepared in the huts, the light lunch by open fire in the wilderness. During the safari you will make short breaks as needed. The route will take you through the beautiful forest scenery, partly close to the treeless fell-region, over frozen lakes and along the rivers.




Today you will cover a distance of around 25 to 30 km. Lunch by campfire along the way. During the afternoon you will return to Harriniva. If time allows, perhaps have a relaxing sauna, sitting by the fireplace, sharing your experiences with new-found friends. This evening enjoy our Farewell dinner with Lapp specialties. Overnight in cozy log cabins near Harriniva.
