Husky Safari in Lapland

Imagine the wind blowing through your hair, the cold Lapland air gently touching your cheeks and a whole lot of white surrounding you. At nights, you sleep in remote wilderness cabins with no electricity or showers. The next day, the same occurs again, the gray and white bundles of fur before you are your only guides into the whiteness ahead. If this sounds like something you would like to experience, a husky safari in Lapland might be the perfect getaway for you!

Husky safaris are great for anybody wishing to get away from the routine of city life. Starting from a friendly Finnish town in the middle of Lapland, you’ll receive instructions from experienced guides on how to sleigh your new furry traveling companions and will be organized into your convoys for the journey ahead.

Across frozen lakes and snow-covered plains you will travel until mid-afternoon, when your northern geographical position will come apparent to you as twilight falls over your camp. If you are lucky, you will gather around a carefully-lit camp fire and will look up in awe as the famed Northern Lights surround your camp in eerie spectacle. Following a hearty meal and possibly even a cold shower, it’s off to bed for a night of well-deserved sleep. Next morning, with bleary eyes and cold toes, familiarity will dawn as you rise to meet another day of animal-driven traveling.

Lapland husky safaris are a great way to experience everything that the remote areas of the northernmost points in Europe have to offer. Whether you just want a taste of husky transport or would like a full nine-day tour, a husky tour is the most authentic way to get around northern Scandinavia. Sure, you could take a snowmobile, but if you’re looking for a wintry experience you’ll never forget, a husky safari in Lapland could be your solution.  Several packages are available starting from various points around the region.
