We loved the expereince of horse sleigh at night. Luckily it was clear sky with full moon. So we enjoyed the chat at the fire side watching the sky. We will defenitely return. Thanks to our guide Sergey. Since we love horses, it was a special experience for us.

Our tour company had booked a four hour husky experience for us with Kamisak Husky and Horse. We were kitted out with very warm gear, including the deerstalker hats, and headed out to meet the huskies. These are gorgeous, friendly dogs and were so excited to be off, being quite vocal about it! The instructions for driving the sledge are quite straight forward - basically you are responsible for slowing down, stopping and leaning and the dogs do the rest. We were able to choose our teams from those set up and bond with them before we set off. Both 12 and 13 year old children were also able to take a turn at driving the sleds which was a lovely bonus but I suspect you do have to be a certain height or weight, simply to be able to slow the dogs down. That moment when the guide untied the ropes to let the dogs go was so exhilarating! We were two families who had then been put together with another large group - at least 12 sleds. This was not a problem for us as we were together near the front but I might not have been so happy if I was at the back! Apparently it was quite warm for the huskies at -1 degree and they rolled in the snow at any given opportunity. Lunch was served in the teepee, fish soup, bread, warm juice, coffee and biscuits. I have to say at this point that some of the other guests seemed to have forgotten 'please' and 'thank you' in any language which was a real shame. Also, the toilet nearby is an emergency compost one, but you could always scoot back to the stables' indoor loo if needed. It was lovely to have the opportunity to take the dogs out for a second run after lunch. A big 'thank you' to Sanna who took care of us and shared some of her liquorice sweets.

We are dog lovers and were happy to have the chance to visit this well run farm and have a little tour. The dogs are not chained but are free to roam within enclosed areas. They looked very healthy and were so excited to see us. There were several puppies and we were allowed to hold four of them. We did not look into a sled ride because we had done that in Alaska on snow, so I do not know if that activity was available here in June. We later sat on the front porch where we had coffee, tea and pastries. Love those beautiful dogs!!!

Terrible! For our long dreamth bucket list come true, I made a booking from the web site for a overnight husky expedition. Asumming it was comfirmed I bought our flight to ivalo. After emailing them and not recieving a reply, ı called the company several times finally a lady told somebody will contact me. I lost several days waiting for a confirmed date. Nobody called or replied to any of my emails. I had to spent my holiday in ivalo instead of a diferent destination where i could have taken this tour. Deffinately not a proffesional company at all. You shouldnt ruin peoples plans or dreams. Thank you

Today we finaly getting to meet the dogs at the husky farm - kamisak. We were very glad to see that the dogs had a lot of space and didn't wear a chain. The dogs where super excited for taking us on the ride. After the tour we had a nice vegan soup and we have met the puppies!! If you love dogs, you have to visit Kamisak!
