The kennel is closed during the summer. Our huskies will be back in business in our home kennel in January 2022. We will be working in Lapland on Christmas holidays.

Husky Picnic: kennel visit, 1 km husky ride, and a picnic at the teepee by open fire (hot juice, coffee, and fried sausages). You can bring your own snacks if you want something more.

Duration: The 1 km ride lasts 5 mins. Between the rides, it is possible to make friends with the huskies, do photography and sit by the fire doing the picnic. People stay typically 1–2 hours depending on their own interests and weather.

Prices: €30 per person, children under 12 years €10 in the company of paying adults. Payment at location in cash. Credit cards not accepted.

Reservations: by email: . Add your telephone number in case there will be some last minute changes.
