The 12-km route goes through private woodland and lakes, and it is easy to drive. The guide will drive a snowmobile in front of your team to make sure that everything goes well and help you if necessary. Drivers will be changed half way through the ride.

The five-kilometre hike lasts approximately one hour.
Ice fishing ” local meditation” is indeed a Finnish hobby that almost all local people do. Now is your chance to try your luck on ice-fishing. Our guide introduces the gear to you and teaches you the tricks of ice fishing. After drilling a hole into the lake and setting up your fishing jigs “pilkki”, you may catch perch, whitefish or pike. Many Finns enjoy fishing for the peaceful moments it offers in nature. For some it is a way to spend time with friends and family, and some enjoy it most when done alone. Catching fish is the goal, but not the only reason to go out on the lake.

Experience the beautiful nature of Kuusamo with the Siberian huskies, who love to take walks. Hiking with huskies is more intensive than normal walking because the dogs are very eager to study the surroundings. Guide tells you general information about husky dogs and will give you instructions on how to harness your huskies for a walk by 1 dog / 2 persons. The dog is attached to the customer’s waist.
We walked the forest trail and the road for about 1,5 hours (we chose the route according to the wishes of clients). Feel the friendship with your companion and enjoy the beauty of nordic Lapland. Walking in the forest with husky dogs is definitely a great experience.
