Important: Please take the time to read all of the information provided in this flyer.
Let the adventure begin!
Have you ever dreamed about travelling to see this planet's most beautiful natural phenomenon? Are you in for a winter adventure? Would you like to go husky - sleighing not only for 3 hours but for 3 days having you own sleigh and dogs that you should love and take care of? Or maybe wander in the wild icy forests with a pair of snowshoes meeting the reindeers?
Then this travel adventure is for you!
The only thing that you would need is a free spirit, your love for nature and to discover yourself and a mood to live an adventure and to flow with life!
During our adventure we will spend 2 nights in our chalets in the wilderness in Finnish Lapland close to Ivalo city where we hope to get the chance to see the Northern Lights painting the night sky and wander with snowshoes in the forests, but also we will set for a 3 days - 2 nights husky safari adventure around lake Inari and in the surrounding forests having winter activities and fun!
Depending on the flights we arrive at our chalets, we settle in and if there is enough time we grab a pair of snowshoes and we head to the wilderness hunting for Aurora Borealis and reindeers!
Let the husky safari begin!
Our leaders come and pick us up from our chalets and we head to the husky safari farm.
In the morning we start at 10:00 am with sharing the equipments and packing the sledges. After that we will have good driving lesson and tricks on how to control the dog team. We harness the dogs and start our safari through the beautiful nature of Lapland.
In the middle of the trip we will have an 1 hour brake when we make soup lunch in open fire and enjoy hot drink (coffee, tea or juice).
When we arrive to the Lappish cottage we feed the dogs, put them some straws and unpack our equipments. Evening goes by making dinner, get warmer in sauna, telling stories about the dogs and adventures in Lapland and having some in depth discussions on how to live a fulfilled and happy life along with some practices..
This day we will travel with the dogs and take ice fishing equipments with us
and try to get some fresh fish and enjoy some lunch on open fire. If we are lucky our guide will make dinner for us of the fish we catch.
After this we return to the cottage. If we choose so we can have snowshoe trip instead of driving huskies in this middle day of safari.
In the evening we will experience the Shamanic ritual called ''kamlani" and we will travel with the sound of the drum to the 4 shamanic worlds to get guidance from the world of spirits.
Warming up in sauna is always in order!
We start driving back to our chalets after breakfast and stop in the middle to have lunch and arrive back to kennel in the evening.
After we say good buy to our friends we return to our hotel for our last night in magical Lapland, to relax, exchange views on our trip, warm up for a final time in the sauna and have a massage if time allows.
Bye bye Lapland!

A FEW WORDS AND MYTHS ABOUT AURORA BOREALIS AND LAPLAND!
A few words about Aurora Borealis or else the "Tricky Lady" as the locals call it and the mythical Lapland!
An aurora is a natural light display in the sky,especially in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions.
Aurora Borealis is named after Aurora,the goddess of dawn according to Roman mythology, who was renewing herself every morning to fly across the sky, announcing the arrival of the sun and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas.
For more info please visit:
In Finnish folklore, an element of mystery is associated with Lapland, the country’s northernmost province. Many a myth stems from the ancient animistic beliefs of the Sami, the Arctic tribe and Europe’s only indigenous people.
In Sami mythology, everything has a soul. Thus, every living and non-living being has a story of their own. Rocks and trees, foxes and reindeer, the Northern Lights in the sky and the knife in the reindeer herder’s hand all carry knowledge and wisdom within. Spirits are present in everything, wherever one wanders.
LAND OF THE SHAMANS
In the old days, Sami medicine men foretold one’s fate through visions. Healing, both spiritual and physical, was practised through shamanism and making contact with the spirit world.
Life in Lapland follows the cycle of Mother Nature, and the stark contrasts between the four seasons dictate the pace.
THE ONENESS OF NATURE AND MAN
Being able to wander in the wildernesses with nothing but your thoughts is a key part of Lapland’s attraction. A feeling of being one with nature is still among one of the most empowering feelings humans can experience.
Like all spiritual experiences, Lapland needs to be seen and felt; describing states of mind never quite gets up there with the actual experience. Words fail to capture the feeling of actually standing on top of a fell gazing at the vast wilderness all around you… now that can send a tingle down the spine.
