A unique way to spend your winter break in Lapland with huskies: live next to the huskies for three full days and help our musher in her daily chores. The dogs will love to be cared for and petted and will happily take you out for a sledge ride in the unspoilt nature that surrounds our lodge.
In the other days, you can enjoy the most exciting family-friendly activities, such as a husky safari, a visit to a reindeer farm and a snowshoe walk with dogs. Those of you who feel a bit more daring can dip in the frozen waters of the local river, or walk on the frozen sea. You will be always accompanied by one of our guides, who will tell you all about this amazing and often overlooked area of Lapland.
After a full day on the move, nothing is more welcome than a typical sauna. And ours is surely one to be enjoyed: its traditional stove ensures smooth steam, and the hot tubs located just outside make for an extraordinary wellness experience. In the evening, our cosy restaurant awaits you. We normally cook Italian specialties, as that’s where we are from, but a stay in Lapland would not be complete without some of the typical dishes of this area.
A winter break in Lapland with huskies is a great way to reconcile yourself with nature and yourself, in an area full of hidden jewels, off the beaten tourist track. It’s easy to reach us but you won’t feel it as we are close to a protected wilderness area.
Enjoy your winter break in Lapland with huskies at the Old Pine Husky Lodge!
