It has now been 6 years since we started our Northern Finnish rides in order to make you share our passion for sleigh dogs and the Arctic. We are located at Ivalo, near the Inari Lake which is 250km long and is frozen from December to late May.
After the first day dedicated to your introduction to the Scandinavian Pulka, we will depart for a 5 day ride on the lake and its 3000 isles. At that time of the year, days are long (15mn of daylight are gained each day)
You will be hosted in typical and cosy huts.Saunas rites included, thirst quenched thanks to the local beer called"Kulta rabbit", salmon meals...
