Private husky tour for you two only! 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 wilderness hotel where you can treat yourselves with massage and other wellness treatments. In between you spend time at a small husky farm 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 the only guests, share a room with a fireplace and a view to the lake. Hosts will cook you dinners using local ingredients and share their home and lifestyle with you during the stay. Most importantly, you get to bond with 25 friendly dogs.
Day 1: Arrival at Kajaani Airport followed by transportation to your hotel (approx. 1 hour), dinner and accommodation in a double room or a suite.
Day 2: You will meet your guide at the reception after the breakfast and will be driven to the husky farm by car (30-min transfer). At the husky farm you will get a 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 approx. 25 kilometers depending on the weather and the chosen trail. In the afternoon you 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. In the afternoon you are transported back to the hotel – by car, or if the trails allow, with huskies. Anyhow, distance covered by dog sledding is approximately the same as the day before. After saying goodbye for new furry friends you have time to relax and enjoy hotel's wellness department including saunas, jacuzzi and an outdoor hot tub.
Day 4: After breakfast transportation will be provided to Kajaani Airport.
