With the dog sled to the Finnish Candlelight Dinner

A romantic Arctic experience for couples. We start with a hot welcome drink and getting to know our friendly huskies in the free-lit kennel. We harness the teams together, and after a short introduction in the handling of the team, it’s time to explore the arctic blue darkness of the ancient spruce forest. Mushing a team of huskies in the magical atmosphere of blue darkness and soft white snow is an unforgettable experience. Husky sled is one of the most ancient means of transport, and the quiet of the sleeping forest creates an intimate atmosphere. When we return to the kennel and say good night to the dogs, a delicious dinner is cooked for you on open free in the Lapp hut. For the menu, we recommend, for example, salmon cooked on open free or reindeer stew. Our menus always include a variety of organic and local ingredients, and true to the spirit of our family business, products of Nature, such as spruce tips or wild forest berries.
