Hiking with the Huskies

Husky hiking is great fun for both the person and the dog. Indeed, it can be as rewarding as mushing with the dogs. Not only do you get a chance to look around you at a more calm pace (than when sledding) whilst moving through one of Europe's last great wilderness areas but you also get a lot of time interacting directly with your dog. They will absolutely love you for the chance to do something out of the ordinary.

Hikes described in this section range from short one-hour products to full-on journeys. Whilst most of the hikes are best attempted in the 'non-snow' months, some are also possible in the snowy months with snowshoes or cross country or back country skis. Either way, if you have chosen to take dogs with you, the dogs are attached to you with a skijoring line clipped to a waistbelt, so there is no fear that you will accidentally let them go.

Of course, you can also hike these trails without husky companions. Some trails are well marked. Others, are a true navigational challenge through 100s of kilometers of unmarked arctic tundra and are only advised for the experienced hiker in summer or back country ski tourer in winter.

However long or short your trip, we are happy to either arrange guides for you or to simply point you in the right direction.

If you want to reserve a hike in winter, please check for guide availability (by phone or email) ahead of time. In summer, we can often arrange a guided hike at short notice.
