Huskysafaris

Most memorable experience of the winter

Hus­ky safa­ri is an unfor­get­table expe­rience that you will fond­ly remem­ber for years to come. On a dog sled ride you get to mar­vel at the gor­geous natu­ral sce­ne­ry and whi­te snow of Kuusa­mo and fol­low the eager­ly run­ning hus­kies.

Hop on a sled and enjoy the thrill of sled­ding with the hus­kies!

Experience the joy of driving and relax aboard the sled

The sled team con­sists of 5 to 6 dogs. The­re are two people on the sled, one of whom dri­ves and the other sits on the rein­deer pelt lined sled. Halfway through the trip we switch dri­vers, so both pas­sen­gers get to expe­rience both the joy of dri­ving and relaxing on the sled.

Safe and easy

We pro­vi­de both dri­ving gui­dance and safe­ty instruc­tions on all our hus­ky safa­ris. The gui­dance makes dri­ving the sled easy, enjo­y­able and safe. The safa­ri gui­de dri­ves on a snow­mo­bi­le in front of the safa­ri and is imme­dia­te­ly rea­dy to help should the need ari­se.

Erä-Susi also pro­vi­des cus­to­mers with dri­ving gear such as warm ove­ralls if neces­sa­ry.

The rough­ly 5 kilo­me­ter long hus­ky safa­ri is the shor­test and easiest safa­ri we offer. The rou­te goes through variable ter­rain and pro­vi­des a compre­hen­si­ve look of the natu­re of Kuusa­mo. The ter­rain varies from open fields to hills and paths through the heart of the forest. The depar­tu­re is from the Erä-Susi dog ken­nels.

The hus­ky safa­ri also inclu­des:

  • A hot drink (cof­fee or tea), a juice, a bun and a sausa­ge which are pro­vi­ded after the sled run on a cozy cot­ta­ge. Our break cot­ta­ge is built on an atmosp­he­ric old barn
  • A visit to the domes­tic ani­mal farm and dog ken­nels after the run. You get to meet with our char­ming dogs, rein­deers, lamas, wool­ly pigs and many other ani­mals.

Dura­tion 120 minu­tes

149 € / adults

The rough­ly 10 kilo­me­ter long hus­ky safa­ri is a bit more deman­ding than the 5 kilo­me­ter due to the lon­ger riding time. The rou­te goes through variable ter­rain and pro­vi­des a compre­hen­si­ve look of the natu­re of Kuusa­mo. The ter­rain varies from open fields to hills and paths through the heart of the forest.

On this rou­te you can also see the slo­pes of Ruka and a beau­ti­ful tree-lined “alley” in the forest. The depar­tu­re is from the Erä-Susi dog ken­nels.

The rough­ly 24 kilo­me­ter long hus­ky safa­ri is the lon­gest and most deman­ding safa­ri we offer due to the length of the ride. The rou­te itself isn’t any more dif­ficult than the shor­ter rou­tes.

The rou­te goes through variable ter­rain and pro­vi­des a compre­hen­si­ve look of the natu­re of Kuusa­mo. The ter­rain varies from open fields to hills and paths through the heart of the forest. The depar­tu­re is from the Erä-Susi dog ken­nels.

This is the only safa­ri we offer whe­re we stop at the mid­point of the rou­te to have a lunch break on the res­tau­rant Loma­lo­pot­ti. You can also order in advance a delicious sal­mon soup (16 €) which you can enjoy during the break.
