The white colored wild dogs also known as huskies are a main part of this wintery region that is almost always covered with snow. This is the place where you can enjoy dog sledding during the winters and kayaking, hiking and excursions during the summer time.
This also includes an exploration of the beautiful Northern Lights, a visit to the puppy house and a traditional Sami dinner that is a meal of reindeer meat. It is a thrilling experience mostly for first timers as they are also taught how to drive their own sledges.

We did the overnight stay and dog sledding experience (self-drive). We started off by taking a tour of the place, seeing where we would sleep, eat, seeing the dogs, etc. We then had a hot meal, which was delicious! As everyone was leaving (we stayed since we were staying overnight), we were huddled in our little hut because it was cold outside. We had a knock on our door and said to come outside. We were able to see the northern lights! It was a super cloudy day and we were able to see the lights through the clouds all by ourselves. It was awesome! At first, we felt the dogs were just working dogs and were not taken care of. However, our mentality changed really fast! The dogs get fed several times a day, don’t have to do anything they don’t want to do, and get worked with on a daily basis. They even have two days off from dog sledding every week, just like humans get two days off of work! We thought it was pretty neat. The dogs have trainers and they get loved and cuddled every day. They all looked very happy and healthy. The dog sledding was an outstanding experience! We were able to drive the sled with 6 dogs attached and the guides did a great job. We would definitely go back and this was one of the best parts of our vacation.
Amazing experience, guides and mushers were very friendly and knowledgeable. Hot drinks and food were included, cake was lovely! Dogs are well looked after and are very friendly! We had a great time!
Good visiting attraction. Lots of beautiful and friendly dogs and puppies to pet. Interesting film about the trials and tribulations of dog sledding. And lovely coffee and chocolate cake to finish.
My husband and I loved our hike with the "teenager" puppies. They have so much energy and love to play! We played some fun games, cuddled smaller puppies, and even got to see a litter of newborn baby puppies!! We had some free time to walk around and meet the adult dogs and enjoyed the song styling of Rex, the singing dog. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and the chef was very accommodating to my being vegan (and dairy allergy). High point of my trip. Comes with a price tag but worth it. My husband enjoyed it more than he thought! Highly recommended.
We did the “visit a husky farm” tour and it was fun! First they explain a bit about dog sledding, then you get to visit the puppy area (outside) and cuddle the babies. Then you visit the half of the 300 sled dogs who are out (the other half are inside in the running/exercise area) and they all want to be petted! Amazingly friendly dogs. Ends with a film about owner’s Iditarod experience and hot cocoa and cake inside one of the huts by a fire. Tip: bring/wear an extra jacket and gloves to interact with the dogs because you will stink afterwards! Also wear snow pants so you get get down with the doggies.
