About Loihakka
Loihakka specialises in husky safaris. We are based in Varjakka, Oulu, Finland. In summer we also offer guided tours to the historical sawmill of the Varjakansaari Island. Our huskies love their work and we love to see them wagging their tails and eager to go. For this reason, our kennel is open on bookings only: as pack leaders, we want to make sure that our dogs have at least one full day of rest all to themselves. We have no minimum group size, so you are warmly welcome to visit our kennel on your own, too.

My two friends and I visited Loihakka in November 2019. There was a lot of snow in Oulu at the times, but unfortunately not enough to go on a sleigh trip. But we still wanted to visit the husky farm, and I was a great experince!! Maja was a kind host, who told us ALL about the dogs. You can really tell, that this family loves their dogs. Maja could tell the names of all the dogs, when they where born and so on. She anwsered all of our questions with great patience and humor - not just about the huskies but about Finish culture as well :-) We will have to come back another times to go on a sleigh trip!!

I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly all the huskies were and that we were allowed to approach all of them and pet them, even while they were obviously excited that the spins were about to start. We first went on a round of spins as passengers before we got to drive the dog sledge on our own (with the owner as a passenger). Awesome fun! Also learned a lot about huskies.

It is something special to visit the home of huskies and see how they live as a family. Thanks to the staff who is very friendly and took us into their world of huskies including a spin. You can book also hot chocolate / a meal after the spin whereas the sausages will be prepared on fire in a little cottage

We had a pleasure to visit Loihakka and play with huskies the other day. The hosts were very nice, we had a really good time. Maija treated us with a delicious hot berry drink next to the fireplace in a cute hut. Instagram is filled with huskies now 😄 Kitos!

Loihakka has been a beautiful experience. The beauty of husky´s and their gentle soul are combined in this family business. We enjoyed our tour through the farm and the friendlyness of the owners.
