Fascinating, breathtaking, unforgettable experience!
This was even better than our dog-sledding experience in Yukon and in the Swiss Alps. We had even more fun this time! Thanks Aksana for making our dreams come true and taking care of us at your own home! Looking forward to come back soon.
Highlight of our trip to Lapland!
We had such an amazing time in Lapland and our visit to Aksana and Antti was just the icing on the cake. It was such an wonderful and unique experience and certainly not something you'd not get from a large tour company.
Their house and hospitality was second to none and it gives you a lovely insight into Lappish culture. I never expected to be guiding the dog sleigh but it was so much fun across a frozen lake and the scenery was magnificent.
Afterwards we were treated to delicious food inside their beautiful home. We will return!
Fantastic Family Trip!
We booked a private trip with the huskies for ourselves and our 5 and 6 year olds. We were picked up at our hotel by Aksana and driven to their home and husky farm next to a stunning frozen lake surrounded by snow covered trees. There were 8 huskies (4 per sleigh) and we were shown how to drive the sleighs, with children wrapped up warm inside. Antti and Aksana came with us on their snowmobile and made sure we were OK on several occasions during the hour and we covered around 8kms on the lake.
The place was magical and it was a great experience. Part way round, we had some warming hot berry tea.
Once back at the house, the children had a chance to cuddle the huskies and cat and we were offered hot drinks and crisps with homemade salmon dip followed with delicious homemade Finnish pancakes and jams. This was such a wonderful way to see the area and a great way for the children to meet the animals. We would definitely recommend this.
