DAY 3 HUSKY SAFARI - SNOWMOBILE SAFARI

In the morning, it is time for a Husky safari (10km). After a short drive from town, you’ll arrive at a husky kennel, where friendly huskies will enthusiastically welcome you. Before departing on the safari, you will be instructed how to control the sleds. This safari allows you to experience something unique: the ties between the musher and the dogs formed on a joint expedition into the wilderness. You soon learn that behind its icy-blue gaze, a husky is a friendly canine character who works closely with people. Once you return to the kennel, you can enjoy hot berry juice by an open fire and chat away with the musher about these amazing northern animals. Lunch is at leisure.
In the afternoon, leave for a Snowmobile Safari* (2hrs) - the best way to get to nature and back. During this safari, you will learn the fun of snowmobiling along frozen rivers and through forests covered with snow. Enjoy the beautiful view of the river valley from the top of the hills. A break with hot beverages will keep your motor running. Hotel pick up is available 45 minutes prior to departure. Evening and dinner is under your own arrangement.

*Please note, that during the tour, each snowmobile is shared by two guests taking turns in driving. The driver of the snowmobile has to be at least 18 years old, with a driver’s license valid in Europe.
