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.

We couldn't do a husky safari, because it was too early in the season, but we still got to meet the animals during the tour. The animals looked really happy (foxes, wild pig, huskies, goats) but what made that visit so special was the owner. Firstly, she really took the time to show us and explain to us many things even though there were only two of us. Secondly, she is so passionnate about what she does that makes everything really interesting and meaningful. Finally, she loves her animals so much and knows them so well, that it looked like a big family. If you re looking for a true experience with someone passionate about animals and not only about making money, this is the place for you !
