Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Husky safari is an ecological way to move in the wilderness without motor. By traveling this way our guests will get deep into wilderness they could not reach by car and they can really connect with nature and experience how it feels to be dependent on a team of huskies.

Season and weather make each safari different. A local professional guide will tell the participants about the eight seasons, the Arctic nature and its fauna on the way. Far out the wilderness it might also be possible to see some of the Arctic animals, for example reindeers and pfarmigans. He/she will also make sure the guests arrive safely back from the safari.

During the safari the dogs are taken well care for by the participants themselves.

During their stay our family guests will stay in a traditional log cabin, built in the traditional way out of local material, which is as ecological as any building material can be. In addition to the sledge-dogs our guests will also meet reindeer, semi-wild animals living free all over Lapland and eating lichen.
A
t the hotel a buffet tables is set every night using a lot of local ingredients, reindeer, fish, berries and mushrooms.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We are keen to support the local community and ensure that they feel the benefits of tourism. The Husky farm for example is a local company in the northernmost Lapland in Ivalo. Our guests will get closer to the nature and will get to discover how the original population has been able to survive in extreme conditions above the Arctic circle.

The log cabin is owned by a private Finnish company and all the services such as cleaning and maintenance are provided by local companies. There are grocery stores, restaurants and activity providers easily accessible. We also recommend that our customers take part in the trips from the weekly program which are run by local operators.

The original Sámi culture is fascinating and we recommend that our guests make a tour to Inari, where Sajos, the Sámi parliament and Siida, the Sámi museum are located. There are only about 70 000 Sámi people left living in the northern parts of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia. As other indigenous people, the Sámi have strived to preserve and maintain their culture. The Sámi museum offers a great way to understand more about the culture and nature of Lapland.
