Half Day Husky Safari – Saariselka

From £172 pp

What You'll Do

Skimming over the pristine white snow of through the sharp, pure Lappish air behind a team of gorgeous huskies is an experience that simply can't be missed.

Driving a team of these beautiful dogs over the shimmering white fells, the silent, snow-dusted trees lining the tracks, is an almost mandatory activity during your time in Lapland.

The endlessly energetic dogs fly over the ground, and the sled glides seamlessly over the deep snowdrifts as the skids his softly, the only sound in the serene wilderness.

Take ownership of your own sled, taking your team left, right or flying over crossroads, and of course, allow a few obligatory shouts of “Mush!” to escape.

The husky safari is a 20km adventure in Lapland that lasts around 2 hours, and you’ll also get to spend some time with the huskies and maybe even meet some husky puppies, a chance to fully indulge in all your dog obsessions.

You’ll also get a delicious, authentic lunch, on this day you’re certain never to forget.

If you are staying at the Northern Lights Village where this experience departs from please let us know your holiday booking reference number when placing your husky booking. If you are booking this as a ‘stand alone’ experience please ensure you detail in the free text field whether you require a local hotel pick up (subject to charge).   The experience departs from the Northern Lights Village at 0930.

Your Local Host:


I was born and raised in Finland and for the last twenty years now I've been offering authentic, immersive experiences in the region of Lapland. Originally, I worked with my sister as operations manager for her tour company. So, finding,  sourcing and planning trips and excursions and this equipped me with a vast knowledge of the area and the tours that were being offered.
