“We had the privilege of taking part in the first 5-day husky tour organized by guesthouse husky. We have enjoyed the tour very much. The tour was planned excellent, covering multiple types of landscapes with stunning views. The food as prepared very tasteful during all 5 days.

We would recommend this tour to people who love being active outdoors, willing to be involved in taking care of the dogs (lining them up, feeding, etc) and don’t require luxury for multiple nights in a row.”

Luuk & Daniëlle, Netherlands

“Great location if you enjoy nature. Stunning surroundings and in a way felt very surreal. The huskies are super cute and very loving. We miss all the dogs! We did the 4 hour husky safari twice and it was so much fun. It was truly an experience we will never forget. The guide very helpful and cooked a nice lunch in a hut.”

Onlalinya, Netherlands

“The dog experience is one of the lifetime. They will provide you with boots and overalls that kept us warm all 6 hours of the mush. The guide was very experienced and also an excellent cook as we had a lunch in one of the forest huts. Dogs were awesome. We used other service for Aurora spotting through the lodge and it was very good. The lodge has a sauna, small kitchen to handle your lunch or snack, tea, etc. it also has a large deck upstairs to watch the skies. It is a very short drive from Ivalo but nicely hidden in the woods unlike other by the road guest houses.”

Magdalena M

“Our family love dogs and the two day husky safari was truly a memorable experience for my family of 5. Travelling over the snow covered terrain and over frozen lakes, with breath taking scenery made the trip seem shorter than it really was and kept us from thinking about the cold.

Our guides were really wonderful in taking care of us, preparing the meals, and helping us along each time we fell off the sled. A big thank you for a really enjoyable trip.”

Our Alaskan huskies

There are over 100 Alaskan huskies living in our farm.

Huskies are friendly, social and active dogs which happily welcome you to meet them. There is no need for bad conscience when joining a husky safari, huskies love to run and enjoy their work! You can learn more about these beautiful animals during your visit.

40 years experience of huskies

Juha-Pekka has gathered knowhow about huskies already for 40 years. Our Alaskan husky farm is located in the same place where Juha-Pekka settled down with his 17 huskies in 1988. Long tradition and continuous interest in making the things in an even better way ensure, that you will have not only great time, but also the feeling of professionality in all doing as well as happy huskies which are taken care of very well.

About us

No snowmobiles

All our husky tours are organized without snowmobile assistance as on our safaris even the tour guides are driving with huskies. This way you can fully enjoy the peace and silence of the nature as well as the connection to your husky team.

We use snowmobiles when maintaining the tracks and in other needed service work. Boys also use snowmobiles in order to get to school or to their friends due to lacking public transfer.

Other things to do in winter

Our guesthouse and farm are surrounded by a beautiful forest area, which you can explore by various means.

If you enjoy walking, you can reach even Ivalo village in an hour either along the road or partly along Ivalojoki-river.

Especially if you are with children, it is fun to do some sledging or try our kick sledges. You can use both free of charge.

It is also possible to go snow shoeing or cross-country skiing. Equipment for both are available for rental.
