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 husband and I visited Wild Spirit park while on our honeymoon, we found the park by chance on a drive from Invalo to Lake Inari and found them on trip advisor when looking the park up online. Tiina was very responsive when I messaged on Facebook and was more than happy to accommodate a full tour of the park and her animals. Tiina knew each individual animal's story and is clearly very passionate about caring for them all - most are rescue. The tour was only €10 and we spent nearly an hour and half there including a break to warm by the fire. Such a lovely place and off the beaten track from the usual more expensive tourist attractions!
Thank you Tiina 🥰

The park was really amazing!

Tina has some animals which were rescued from fur farms in the park, including arctic foxes, a boar and a raccoon dog :-)

Due to Tina offering Husky safaris she also has some Huskies, some of them were shy, some weren’t, all were friendly so if they came to you you could pet and sometimes even snuggle them :)

If you can visit the park (book ahead) and support it. You won’t regret it!

What an unique and amazing experience that I will keep with me for the rest of my life. Animals are so cute and very well treated by the kind owner. She saves lives of lots of animals who are put down for their fur ❤️ We thanks everyone who helps those animals.
The safari tour with the dogs is sooo great and the landscapes are breathtaking also.
I HIGLY RECOMMAND this park.. so much better than the big companies full of tourists and where animals are not always treated well.

Thanks for this amazing day! ❤️❤️😍😍🦊

We were the first trip of the season and it was great! Only our family and the 6 beautiful dogs! We drove on a iced lake and snowy track.
So far from mass Tourism Tour!
After the 1h safari, Tiina offers a warm drink in a quiet place and we had a look of some wild animals saved from a fur farm.
Thank you for to sharing this moments with us.

We had a great visit to wild spirit park in Ivalo, it’s definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. It’s not an large place by any means but their are enough to see with Arctic foxes, snow dogs, a wild hog, goats and of course the sledding dogs that you can interact with. We went in early November and while there was snow it wasn’t enough to go sledding. That didn’t effect our overall experience though as the owner was thorough in explaining the stories of each of the animals there. We had a great time and at only a 10 euro donation to visit it’s probably one of the best values as far as experiences go. Plus you get the added benefit of knowing it goes to the cost of taking care of the park.

What a wonderful place this is! We loved the fact that it is more of a sanctuary for the animals - artic foxes, racoon dogs, the wild boar Romeo and goats! - rather than a commercial establishment. Tiina is wonderful, having dedicated her life to looking after animals rescued from cruel hands. The huskies are great and whilst we couldn't do a traditional husky ride as it autumn, it was great to meet them and hear about each one etc Do pre book - a visit or a indeed husky safari/sledge tour in winter - you wont regret it :)

After reading so many good reviews from different channels, we decided to book a visit with my husband. Due to the warm weather, the husky safari was not possible anymore. But we were introduced to all animals in the park and had chance to hear stories of them. The owner, Tiina, is so heartful and devoted to keep an excellent care of her animal friends. We were touched by this lady and her commitment. Because of the covid situation, the place is lacking for the visitors which means directly economical loss. We hope that she can continue her valuable mission so you can also do some donations, as we do as a godparent to lovely fur friends.

We pre-booked a husky safari. When we arrived we were friendly greeted by Tiina, who moved here 15 years ago for her love for animals. The tour was amazing, some beautiful spots and we were introduced to every husky who was on our sled. Afterward we were invited in a Kami, which is a vert cosy stone house with a fireplace. We got some tea and cookies and she told us beautiful stories about the animals she had. Afterwards we got a tour around the farm and she told us about the artic animals. She has a wild pig, 26 huskies, 4 artic foxes, a gold fox, a cross fox, 2 racoon dogs and 2 Finnish goats! She is a vert friendly and warm person. She takes care of the animals very well. This is an absolute must visit when you are in Lapland!

Stopped by during our visit to Ivalo. Luckily for us, our hotel called ahead to see if they were open. That is when we learned you needed to book a tour and not just show up. We drove over and were met at the gate. Wonderful tour to see the animals. It was obvious she puts a lot of love and care into the place. Really enjoyed the visit. Only thing I would suggest is to have a fire going in the small hut when the tour goes in to look at the photo book. It was a cold day and a brief respite from the cold would have been welcome.

We went to Ivalo towards our last part of Lapland trip. Tiina has been very helpful in booking the trip and arranging the activity. She actually owns the whole husky farm and is not the agency as other companies are. In this way she is cheaper as well. 2.5-3 hrs action packed tour included 1.5 hr Husky activity and rides. The huskies are kept in loving environment. Me and my wife were on one sleigh and kids on other. It was completely personal activity for my family and had full care and attention. P

I strongly recommend to book Husky Safari only with Wild Spirit Park (Tiina) and no other company as had bad experience with Northern light riders.
