Wild canines - wilderness week with huskies and wolves

This winter week acquaints you with huskies and wolves. First you spend two days on a local husky farm getting to know lovely, human friendly dogs. You will set off on a husky sledding excursion and help with daily duties of the farm. The theme for the last days is the Gray Wolf (Canis Lupus) which is found throughout Finland but the densest population lives in the eastern forests. You will make a ski tour on the wolves’ tracks and spend time in a wilderness hide from where you may get a chance to see and photograph wolves.   

Itinerary:
Day 1           Arrival
Arrival to Kajaani airport and transfer to Tervahovi cabin in Kuhmo. Dinner and overnight.

Day 2           Husky sledding
Breakfast at the cabin followed by the day with huskies. You will first get to know the dogs and hear about their daily life. Then you set off on a husky sledding excursion through the beautiful taiga wilderness with only the sounds of the dogs breathing and their paws hitting the snow.

Day 3           Husky farm
Another day with huskies. You can do another husky safari or in case you have some experience on cross-country skiing you can try skiing with huskies. After dinner transfer to Kuikka lodge (approx. 60 km).

Day 4         On the wolves’ tracks
