Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My family had this amazing husky safari (10km) and we enjoyed it. The three of us were all on the same sled and drove in turns and it was great! Dogs are very cute and affectionate and it is clear that they are loved.
An experience to do absolutely!

It was an awesome experience and something I’ll never forget. Driving the huskies like a real adventurer felt incredible.

Afterwards, the dogs loved to be pet and showed a ton of affection!

My fiancé and I visited the Arctica Wild husky farm and it was such a lovely experience. The owners were the sweetest and most professional people. They “save” huskies for their village with the idea of raising them within a smaller group. This is a smaller husky farm which we saw as a wonderful thing as the owners take care of the dogs and do the husky rides with all their heart.

When it comes to the husky rides, it was so much fun! We could sit in the sled as well as ride and steer the sled ourselves. The huskies couldn’t wait to run the trails! The nature around the trails was beautiful. The perfect experience! The staff also gave good instructions before starting the ride and everything felt comfortable.

If you are in the Ivalo/Saariselkä/Inari we highly recommend going to Arctica Wild/Arctica Lapland! The experience was amazing and the farm so lovely. It’s suitable for lone travelers, couples, groups, and families.

Go enjoy! :)

My boyfriend booked us a night at the aurora hut for my birthday and all I can say is... it was truly wonderful and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Joni picked us up at the bus station and brought us to the hut. What’s included in the price of a night : dinner, breakfast, Finnish sauna, husky sleigh to the hut and obviously the incredible night itself inside the hut under the sky and aurora. (What an AMAZING value for price when you look at the cost of activities in Lapland!!)
He let us sat down asking what we wanted for dinner (literally!!!), we asked him for recommendations and he helped us really well. I ended up getting some moose (omg, so grateful for this master cook!), and my boyfriend got some delicious cooked salmon. Yum!!!
The ride to the hut in the middle of nowhere by huskies was truly magical. You can tell the dogs are loved and truly cared for.
Joni made himself really available for us, asking us whether if we wanted a campfire, or anything else for that matter. Then, we scheduled our sauna session which was great. Such a lovely experience.
We got back home and after a while, Joni brought us dinner to the hut. WOW! So much delicious food. What a birthday dinner 🙏🏼
Then Joni even offered us to use his telescope so we could look at the moon and the stars. The stars... it must have been the most beautiful sky I had seen my entire life. Inside the hut was like a dream, you’ll never want to fall asleep.
Joni also texted us when the aurora came to make sure we wouldn’t miss it. Such a wonderful attention!
We woke up in heaven the next day surrending by the white forest is the middle of nowhere. Is it a dream?
Joni brought us a great filling breakfast and after a bit brought us back a bit further than where he was meant to just so it would be more convenient for us.
What can I say! Thank you for the best birthday I’ve ever had.

PS: Joni even helped us on our next adventure as we video called him because we couldn’t manage to make fire. He deserves the best!

The aurora hut is still quite new and the experience will only get better and better with time, I cannot recommend it enough, you will not be disappointed and will receive perfect service.

Thank you again for everything,
Laurine & Bilel

A fantastic afternoon, excellent host, easy collection and amazing husky experience on the lake. Down hill, lake, photos, swap sledge driver, return, build a fire and have a hot drink. Family run business and they couldn’t be more friendly. Excellent highly recommended. Thank you

Amazing experience. We really enjoy one hour with the huskeys. They really care about the dogs. It is like a private tour and the owners are really friendship and closer to the visitors.
It was one of my best experiences in my life.
