Current news!

We organize Husky Picnics (almost) every Saturday and Sunday usually at 2pm until the end of sledding season. On demand also on other times. Check the list below!

Program: kennel visit, 1 km husky ride (in bad snow conditions might be shorter), hot juice, coffee and fried sausages in the teepee by open fire. You can bring your own snacks, recommended if you're on a special diet.

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 1–3 hours depending on their own schedule and weather.

Prices: €30 per person, children under 12 years €10. 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. Maximum number of participants 20 persons.

Address: Kennel Gegwen, Saarikunnantie 214, 37500 Lempäälä.

Public transport: If you don’t have a car, the easiest ways here is by train to Lempäälä (20 south of Tampere, 150 km north of Helsinki). Train schedules at http://vr.fi/. There is a taxi stop at Lempäälä station. Take a taxi to my address (8km ~ €20). If there is no taxi, call immediately 0100 4131. You can arrive for the Husky Picnic a little bit earlier or later than agreed.
