Husky Safaris at Pyhä and Luosto

Husky Safaris at Pyhä and Luosto
Dog sled driving is a thrilling wintertime activity! There are two husky farms that offer dog sled rides of different lengths in the Pyhä-Luosto area: Arctic Husky Farm and Luminenä Husky and Samojedi farm.

Dog sledding is a unique experience during which you get to experience a traditional arctic mode of transport that is thousands of years old. In addition, you get to meet the brave and social sled dogs. Experienced guides teach you the ins and outs of driving the dog sled, and then it is your turn to take the reins and lead your pack of huskies through the beautiful forest and fell scenery. You can also just sit in the sled and enjoy the ride.

Huskies and Samoyeds are northern dog breeds and therefore natural sled dogs. Sled dogs need to be social, as they have to work together as a team when pulling the sled. These people-friendly and active dogs will definitely steal your heart!

Remember to book your dog sled safari beforehand so that the dogs are ready for your visit.

Arctic Husky Farm

Arctic Husky Farm is a home to about 200 Alaskan Huskies and 10 Siberian Huskies. The farm offers day safaris that last for a few hours, and longer overnight safaris. After the safari, guests can get to know the Huskies a bit closer, take photos, and enjoy a nice hot beverage by the fireplace while the guides tell stories about the sled dogs and their everyday life at the ranch. In summer the farm organizes individual guided tours where you can meet the dogs. During winter the tours are arranged only after dog sled safaris.

Arctic Husky Farm is located about a 10-minute ride away from both Pyhä and Luosto. Some service providers of the Pyhä-Luosto area arrange snowmobile safaris and transportation by car to the farm.
