Loihakka specialises in husky safaris. We are based in Oulu, Finland.

Loihakka has fifteen years of experience in husky safaris around Northern Finland and in the Oulu region, along with hundreds of happy customers around the world. Loihakka is not a dog farm: all our dogs are individuals in their own right and they live as valuable members of our family. We take pride in our cheerful, friendly and well-tended dogs, who are always happy to give our visiting explorers an unforgettable experience in the wilderness.

Our joyful, friendly Siberian Huskies are happy to give you a ride through the glittering snow. Our huskies know how to enjoy the snow and they love running. Let our huskies offer you the experience of a lifetime exploring the winter wonderland.

Candlelight dinner for two – the Finnish way

A romantic Arctic experience for couples. We start with a hot welcome drink and getting to know our friendly huskies in the fire-lit kennel. We harness the teams together, and after a short introduction in the handling of the team, it’s time to explore the arctic blue darkness of the ancient spruce forest.

Mushing a team of huskies in the magical atmosphere of blue darkness and soft white snow is an unforgettable experience. Husky sled is one of the most ancient means of transport, and the quiet of the sleeping forest creates an intimate atmosphere. When we return to the kennel and say good night to the dogs, a delicious dinner is cooked for you on open fire in the Lapp hut.

For the menu, we recommend, for example, salmon cooked on open fire or reindeer stew. Our menus always include a variety of organic and local ingredients, and true to the spirit of our family business, products of Nature, such as spruce tips or wild forest berries.
