Change in opening times

5.1.2016

Phew! Our winter season has started crowded as expected, and the warm weather has been tough for dogs to work. Now the busiest season is over, and we are returning to the previous opening hours 10-16. After the tense pressing the dogs can now have a little lighter days, and are able to keep running enthusiastic and energetic also the rest of the winter season. 

After December, which was much warmer than average, the weather forecasts show much colder weather. If the tempereture goes down to -30 degrees Celsius, we have to close the gates due to customers' safety. The ride is too cold then, and the risk of frost injuries is too big. Of course, we hope that it doesn't get THAT cold, and the dogs could run every day, because that is the greatest thing they know. :)

Life of huskies'

Arctic Circle Husky Park has operated next to Santa Claus Village for several decades. At the moment there are about 100 huskies in the park, some of the still puppies. :) 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.

General guidelines

Husky Park is open daily at 10-16, also at other times when ordered. The shorter rides and safaris (500 m, 2 km, 5 km) don't need any prior reservation, we are driving them non-stop during opening hours.

For the self driven safaris you don't need any prior driving experience. The guide will give you safety and driving instructions before the safari. The guide will drive in front of the group with his/her own sled, so the guide can help you during the whole safari.

Please wear warm clothes and shoes so that the coldness does not ruin this immemorable experience for you.

Night Trip

Enjoy the Northern Lights in a unique way! Admire the magical lights dancing in the sky while you are sitting in the sledge being pulled by a husky team. During our journey away from the city lights, you can rest your mind and put your focus up to the sky. The darkness of the night and the Northern Lights blazing in the sky create a breathtaking atmosphere which can be felt only in Lapland! The silence of the wilderness around us is broken only by the smooth sighing of the sledge skids. We will have a stop to warm up a little in a goahti, as we also grill sausages and drink hot juice. If Lapland's magic is on our side and the Northern Lights show themselves to us, during the break you can also photograph the Northern Lights, and capture these unique moments with your camera so you will have them for a lifetime.

Notice: Capturing the Northern Lights succeeds best with a camera with long exposure time and a tripod.

After the engaging displays, we will return back to the home of the huskies so they are able to have a good night rest to be ready for the next day.

Duration 1,5 - 2 hours, time of departure on Mon, Wed, Fri and Sun at 8 pm.
