Imagine being taken across the magical nightly landscape and under the starry sky by a team of arctic dogs, vibrant colors of the Northern Lights blazing above? This dreamy scene might become reality and turn into a memory of a lifetime during this night time husky safari!

While most travelers wish to have the husky safari in the daylight, remember that Lapland is enveloped into the Arctic darkness in the winter season, so why not choose an evening departure that gives you the opportunity to perhaps spot the dancing Aurora Borealis.

This tour will be organized at the Arctic Circle Wilderness Resort area and can be joined with dinner.

You will drive your own husky team for approximately 6 km (20 – 30 minutes duration) depending on the weather, with an opportunity to stop halfway through to change drivers. This tour is a great taste of the world of dog sledding.

After your ride with the huskies we will have lots of opportunities for photos and petting the friendly dogs. Our guide will also explain more about the huskies and their lifestyle, while enjoying hot berry juice and cookies by the warm fire in a Lappish teepee.

Two adults and up to two children share one husky sled.

Please note: The northern lights are a natural occurrence and we are unable to guarantee activity, vibrancy or color on the evening of the tour. The tour date can be moved free of charge once (depending on availability, excl. group reservations), please contact [email protected] by 16.00 on the original date.
