What does Husky Picnic include?

Husky Picnic includes a kennel visit and meeting the dogs, 1 km husky ride and a picnic in the teepee by open fire with your own snacks.

1 km ride does not last long. Between the rides, it is possible to make friends with the huskies, do photography and sit by the fire doing the picnic. Bring your own snacks like sausages and marshmellow candy. There's coffee and tea available from our side. People stay typically 1–2 hours depending on their own interests and weather.

Please note that Husky Picnic is not a real safari where you will learn how to drive your own dogteam. It's not possible here.

Next Husky Picnics

Currently, on March 22 it looks like the sledding season 2024 is over. If a spring blizzard hits us, we may be able to harness the dogs a couple of times more, but more likely we will be back in business around Christmas 2024 immediately when we get enough snow for building the tracks.

Always check the availability and make a reservation by email or WhatsApp +358402516923 preferably at least the night before! Please note that the last minute queries cannot be answered after 13:00 hours.
