A WALK WITH HUSKIES, Saariselkä
Take the huskies for an afternoon walk and get friends with the furry sled dogs
Hiking with huskies is another great way to get to know Lappish nature and these enthusiastic Arctic animals. On arrival at the husky kennel you will be welcomed by eager, but friendly barking, as these dogs are keen to get going! Your guide will share his knowledge of the life of the sled dogs and give you instructions on how to handle them. You will get to know your dog by name and the tricks he or she is capable of. The hike itself is on easy terrain, and you will be spotting various Arctic shrubs, berries, birds and perhaps even animals inhabiting the forests. After the hike it’s time to take the furry friends back to their kennels and feed them before rewarding yourself with drinks around the camp fire.
