Enjoy a thrilling speedy husky ride, have a guided park visit to see different arctic animals, and kiss the reindeer!

As we drive to the kennel from Levi, our guide will tell you a story about Balto and share some interesting facts about huskies. In this excursion, you will visit one of the oldest in Finland husky kennels, which belongs to the famous Finnish musher Reijo Jääskeläinen.


During a kennel tour, you will meet genuine Siberian huskies of different ages, arctic foxes, brown foxes, arctic wolves, mixed dog-wolves, spitz, and puppies. Some of these animals are real movie stars, as they were specially trained for filming. Your host will demonstrate some of the tricks the animals can do. Finally, you will go on a husky ride with a professional musher.


You'll be seated in a sleigh, which can take 2 adults and a child, and enjoy a thrilling husky ride. Musher will stand behind you on the runners and you'll get a feeling that dogs are pulling you at their own discretion. A 2 km track goes through the beautiful winter forest and lake scenery.


After the ride you will meet the kissing reindeer Taika, can take some photos with the dogs, and finally go inside a warm Laplander's hut where you can enjoy a warm drink and a hot sausage, sit next to the fireplace, visit a hall of fame of the owner, watch a movie about husky life and buy some local souvenirs.
