I never imagined I could actually handle a sleigh with huskies, and taking care of the huskies throughout the 2 days safari outing. The staff from Hetta Huskies were so knowledgeable and helpful in making me an excellent rider and huskies taker. I overcame my fear!!!! It was a real fear factor for me when I was told I had...

I had a really good experience at Hetta Huskies. This places offers great dogsledding safari’s, but also tells you lots of stories about the dogs, life in the arctic and culture in Lapland. You leave this place knowing a lot more about sleddogs and most of the time you can get involved with the work as well. The safari was... More

We did two types of safari with Hetta Huskies. First we did the 6km Nothern light safari. We did this on a clear a night and we were lucky to see the northern light during our trip. This was very nice! The day after we did the 20km safari. It was wonderful. The people who are working there are very... More

Hi there. Thank you so much for the review. Very much appreciated and very welcome back for a longer tour in the future. Our season is now winding down so we have time for some fun with the dogs (eg with all of the school kids in town). Hopefully we still have a few weeks in which to play. Anna More

Just got home from a 5 day Wilderness Safari, honestly it was the trip of a lifetime. The dogs are amazing, happy, strong, willing, and super friendly. These are working dogs, not pets, and they love the job they do. The centre is run in a very professional way, with safety being a big priority. You are given expert advice,... More

I did the 5 day safari, which was a very challenging experience, but something to remember all your life. The dogs are outstanding ; you cannot remain indifferent to their strength, courage and endurance. In addition to which, although working dogs = not pets, they are all super friendly. The set-up is well organized ; professional but still friendly and... More

We did a 2-day trip and It was absolutely formidable. Landscapes are astonishing and guides are very friendly. The dogs seems very happy and that farm takes very good care of them. We will never forget this experience.

I can't recommend this Husky Farm highly enough. It may not be the biggest, although 170 dogs can cause quite a racket when they all join in a howling session, but it has to be one of the best. The dogs take priority over humans - which is as it should be - but the welfare, safety and enjoyment of... More

Me and my partner went on a 2 day safari last week and had one of the best weekends of our lives. The service was incredible and our guides Lauren and Justin went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable, safe, and got everything and more out of our trip that could have wanted.

We went here last week for a 12 km trip with the huskies. Communication online was flawless. When we arrived, we were well equipped. Since we have small children in our group who don't speak English, we got a Dutch speaking guide, which was great. It starts with an interesting tour around the farm, then instructions are given, and off... More
