NOVELTY: Northern Lights Hunting Safari with Bandvagn!

18.12.2013
Go hunting the Northern Lights in the darkness of Lapland!
This a little bit different safari takes you with an all-terrain articulated tracked carrier into the forests and on top of hill on the Arctic Circle. Bandvagn 206 goes through the brooks and snowdrifts, over the rocks and stumps.
In the halfway of our safari the rumble of the truck and even a little rough ride change into nature's soft darkness and quiet around us at the rest point. We will warm up by an open fire, grill sausages and drink warm juice.
If the sky is favourable and Lapland's magic on our side, we will be lucky to admire the flaming Northern Lights. At the same time you can capture these unique moments with your camera.

Departure: daily from 6th December at 8 pm in front of Holiday Village reception
Duration: about 2 hours
Price: 90 e/adult, 50 e/child

Notice: To capture the northern lights you need a camera with long exposure time or aperture size, and a tripod.

Season has begun!

15.11.2013

YEY!!!! The season has finally started! We got snow last week, and the dogs got in front of sledges. 500 m route has been open for over a week now, and the 2 km route at times – we got some rain one day inbetween, and the guides were terrified watching the rain and wondering if it will melt all the snow, but luckily there was still some left after the rain. We've luckily had quite a few cheerful travelers visiting Husky Park, and the dogs have been happy pulling the sledges at last. Today we got also the 5 km route open, now we are just a bit nervous watching the weather forecasts for the rest of the month, we just wish the temperature would stay under 0 °C!

Life of huskies'

Arctic Circle Husky Park has operated next to Santa Claus Village for several decades. At the moment there are about 90 huskies in the park, of which about 20 are puppies born last summer or autumn. The focus of all operations in Husky Park are the dogs, real, purebred Siberian Huskies, and special attention has been paid to their well-being and natural needs. This can be seen for example in fencing placing, which is unusual in this kind of operations, and also in dog feeding, which consists only of Vom og Hundemat vitaminized raw food.

In Husky Park we don't wake up hearing crow, but a sonorous howling of a husky choir. For breakfast the huskies are given warm and fleshy soup, from which the day gets a good start. When the fencings have been cleaned, the huskies start a deafening yell, as all the dogs want to get to work. Huskies are born to run, and there is nothing more pleasant for them than to pull a sledge with friends. The dogs are fetched from the fencings one by one and harnessed in their own place in front of a sledge. The work day consists of safaris of differents lengths, and the dogs run 30-60 kms a day - quite many marathons a year! Huskies get a little snack between the safaris. When the day is over, the harnesses are taken off and the dogs are taken back to their own fencings, after which it's time for their evening soup. The day ends just like it started - with "thank you and good night" howling.
