    Thank you @Extreme Huskies for this unforgettable experience! From the very beginning we felt very welcomed and the passion Sini & the team has for their huskies is amazing. Just before the tour started, I was a little nervous to drive the sledge but we received great instructions. The huskies were on fire during the whole tour, which went trough the forest & along a frozen lake - just beautiful! At the end, we enjoyed some hot tee/coffee next to a fire place & we had the chance to see baby huskies😍 If you want to do a husky safari, go with Extreme Huskies!

    Our snowmobile trip was amazing!! Went through the frozen river and forest, we saw reindeers and the guide even provided a tea break in between, where we stopped in a hill with an amazing view.

    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!

    A great experience thanks to the guides who were always there to help. Our tours were accompanied by William mainly and I have only great things to say about him. We learned so many things about Finland, Lapland and Sami culture thanks to the organised cultural visits, and had a blast trying all the activities : snowmobile, husky sleigh, reindeer farm, arctic games, nordic walking, jumping into very cold water after the sauna sessions and so on. So a huge thank you to all the guides who were with us this week and I recommend to all of you readers if you're hesitating: don't. Go for it! The experience is amazing and the guide made it at least 9.7 times better ;).

    I personally loved everything I tried, so I recommend trying everything if you can.

    So thank you again to the whole team, the guides: Melissa, Yannick, Alex (I'm probably forgetting some, I'm sorry) and obviously William for sharing your tips, knowledge, time, smiles and jokes with all of us.

    About 15 mins taxi from Ivalo airport for 40 Euros. stayed for 3 nights. Rooms were cosy and warm. Food was excellent with a variety of Finnish meals and good value. Unless you have a car I recommend eating in. Small kitchen for diy food, tea coffee etc. Lookout for the bear! The Huskys were the stars. You must do a trip. 4 hours was great fun. 2 to a sledge and 6 huskys. The guide was very knowledgeable and had a fab lunch. All in all a great stay to see the real Finland and saw Northern lights on the last night. Take a good camera to see all the colours.

    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!

    I just went and made a u-turn on a sledge with 6 huskies in front of it - I loved it. I got great guidance and a great tour by a great team. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and recommend this company to everyone around. We got thermo clothing and hot drinks and we did chase Auroras. Well the huskies did :-)

    Amazing time with wonderful hosts in this winter wonderland! Every day was a different adventure. One day we were sledding, the next taking a husky dogsled ride through a snowy forest and then the next day skiing! We rode snowmobiles, had an open fire lunch near a frozen lake and even fed reindeer (very calm animals!).

    Truly a one-of-a-kind trip that me and my family will remember forever! And the crew at XWander were extremely nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend and looking forward to going back!

    Excellent host and team. Strong and happy dogs. Love to run and take the sleds. Albahusky.com. Beautifull off the grid community all geared for the dogs and the dog sled racing. Taking private tours with 2 on a sled is a beautifull experience. English speaking team.

    I traveled to northern Finland with Travel with TJD and not only had an amazing experience hunting for the northern lights but met some even more amazing people along the way. Michelle and Dennis do a wonderful job of curating really interesting and not so “typical” trips to some really cool places. They also happen to be even cooler people which helps bring people together.

    I enjoyed my first trip so much that I joined them three months later for a sail trip in the Arctic circle in Tromso, Norway! I’m looking forward to my next adventure with Travel with TJD, wherever that may take me.
