Enjoy the Finnish Taiga Winter together – just the two of you, your guides and the lovely huskies. This tour takes you through the beautiful Taiga wilderness with only the sounds of the dogs breathing and their paws hitting the snow. First and the last night are spent at Hotel Kalevala where you can treat yourselves with massage and other wellness treatments. In between you spend time at a small huskyfarm that is situated on the lakeshore with no close neighbours. There is running water, indoor toilet, electricity, and a lovely wood-heated sauna for evening relaxation. You are being the only guests, having a room with a freplace and a view to the lake. Hosts will cook you dinners using lots of local ingredients and share their home and lifestyle with you for a while. Most importantly, you get to bond with 25 friendly dogs. Most of them are Siberian and Alaskan huskies that are bred for pulling, but there are also some mix breed rescue dogs that are having a new life within the pack.
Day 1: Arrive at Kajaani airport, transportation to the Hotel Kalevala (approx. 1 ½ hours), dinner and accommodation in double room or suite.
Day 2: You will meet your guide at the reception after the breakfast and will be driven to the huskyfarm by car (30 min transfer). At the husky farm you will get warm winter overall, mittens and winter boots and then you are ready for the tour. With two teams of dogs and guides you will make the first day tour and learn to drive a team of dogs which you share with your partner. Length of the tour is around 25 kilometres depending on the weather and the chosen trail. In the afternoon we return back to the husky farm.
Before the evening sauna and dinner you have some time to relax, or you can take part in daily tasks with the dogs. You can take some of the retired / non-working dogs for a walk.
Day 3: Another day of dog sledding on new trails. There are several trail options to choose from. Distance covered by dog sledding is approximately the same as the day before. If wished for, it is also possible to drive own teams instead of sharing one with your companion. In the afternoon, after saying goodbye for new furry friends a transfer back to hotel Kalevala. There you have time to relax and enjoy hotel’s welness department including saunas, jacuzzi and outdoor hot tub.
Day 4: After the breakfast transportation to Kajaani airport.
