If you love puppies, huskies, or all of the above, keep reading!
Besides being incredibly gorgeous, Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is especially unique in that it's located right next to two husky farms, with one being Husky & Co Safaris. Here you can take a kennel tour, where you'll have the chance to learn the history of the farm's Alaskan and Siberian huskies, as well as meet, pet, and hold some of the cutest puppies in Saariselkä. 🐶
Regardless of season, the kennel tour is always the same price and can be booked year-round. Husky safaris, however, are only available in winter, and involve a husky-pulled sleigh ride through an Arctic forest.
As expected, husky safaris are a bit more expensive during the holiday season (12/20-1/6). This is also the case if you'd like to "mush" the whole time, rather than alternate with a passenger.
During the summer and fall, the farm offers a husky nature excursion along the border of Finland's largest national park, Urho Kekkonen. This cost also varies based on whether you'd like to walk your own husky or switch off.
Although prices are subject to change, here's a general idea of what to expect.
▪️1.5 Hour Kennel Tour: $72
▪️2.5 Hour Nature Walk: $89-$105
▪️2 Hour Safari: $172-228 ($189-$244, Holidays)
Other than huskies, the hotel also facilitates reindeer and horseback riding. Other popular activities involve snow mobiles and snow tanks, not to mention cross country skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, and of course, hunting for the northern lights.
The resort itself offers a diverse array of accommodation options, which include log cabins, traditional homes, sauna lodges, glass igloos, and queen suites. The below is based on the starting prices from the resort's website and is of course subject to change.
▪️Log Cabins: $183
▪️Traditional Homes: $183
▪️Sauna Lodge: $350
▪️Glass Igloo: $557
▪️Queen Suite: $582
