We have been arranging Husky safaries since the year 2000. We’re located near Ylläsjärvi in the Finnish Lapland, 10 kilometers from Ylläsjärvi towards Kittilä. We are only choice to experience National Park with huskies.
We have varying kinds of safari packages, so You can pick a duration and length for the experience that works best for you. Most of the trips are into the Pallas-Ylläs national park and its vicinity. On the longest safaris our Siberian huskies will take you on a wondrous journey into the beautiful landscapes of the national park.
Our aim is to make the safaris as environmentally-friendly as possible, wholly fulfilling the environmental regulations of the national park. We won’t be using a snowmobile as our guides will also accompany You with their own husky sleds. Have a look into our programs, there’s something available for everyone.

Some heart-warming feedback via TripAdvisor and Facebook from our beloved guests:
“Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Rami’s Huskies. From first contact via Facebook/email to the end of the experience. Sari was extremely helpful with booking and giving clear instructions with maps/directions and answering any questions that we had.
I would recommend booking early as it gets booked up quick, and we only had a few times to choose from.
We managed to do the 5km safari, which was about 1-1.5 hours long in total- plenty long enough for the kids and my toes before getting frozen.
The kids went in a sledge with the main tour guide driving, whilst my husband and i had a sledge. One driving, one enjoying the ride. We were able to swap over half way so we both got a turn driving. At the end of the run and After lots of cuddles with the dogs who are all friendly I managed to drag my daughter away into a lovely little hut with fire place to warm up with grilled sausages and hot drinks, the staff were more then happy to answer any questions we had about the dogs/trip.
Such a fun experience! Would highly recommend 🙂 ”

“What a afternoon out. Can’t recommended this place highly enough. The location was beautiful, the dogs friendly, my 10 year daughter played with them for ages whilst waiting to take the sleds out. The staff were outstanding and informative. I’d brought what I thought were a good pair of boots, they thought otherwise and provided me (FOC) a much better pair. The sledding was incredible. We left at dusk (around 3pm!) so the light was magical. I was surprised but so pleased that you actually get to ‘drive’ your own sleds. A totally exhilarating and breathtaking experience.”

“We have brought our non-Finnish customers to Rami’s Huskies safaris and our customers and the staff really likes the safaris what they run. The venue is absolutely beautiful and their staff is so professional on what they are doing. I think everyone should ask Rami to tell one cheeky joke after the safari!”
“Very beautiful place and nature, very special atmosphere in the dark of the evening, helpful and friendly staff, well-maintained and -behaving dogs. We were 2 adults and a 4-year-old kid, all of us enjoyed by 200%. We got service in Finnish, Swedish and English. I’d like to come here again, for an all-day safari.”
