On arrival, you will be given a driving instructions on how to drive a dog sled. Every person will be driving their own 4 - 6 dog team. We will harness the dogs together and hook your dog team. After an exhilarating start in the forest, we head over the frozen lake to the Finnish - Russian border. The dogs will settle into a fast trot and you can enjoy the scenery of the frozen landscape.
Back at the lodge you can spend some time with our dogs and help to unharness your team.
We then head into the warmth for hot drinks, lunch and a talk about sled dogs.
Time to feed the dogs!
You are welcome to join us during our daily evening feeding of our sled dogs.
After going running, feeding time is the second most important time for the dogs. Each pen is fed in the usual order, while the other dogs are waiting patiently.
After dog feeding, it is nice to warm up, have a beer and relax in a traditional Finnish wood fired sauna and share the experiences of the day.
Our sauna fits up to 10 people.
Men and women can take turns and maybe even risk a dip in the snow afterwards.
During the traditional evening dinner you can enjoy stories about our dogs, racing & the daily musher life.
