A hiking tour that takes you out in the nature and Finnish culture with the lovely Siberian huskies. We hike around the Ontojarvi Lake which is one of the biggest lakes in the area, with many sandy shores and beautiful views. Our tour is mostly on older paths and forest roads; partly we follow the road sides. Accommodation is in a lake side wilderness hotel before and after the trekking. During the hike we stay in small cottages and log cabins. One of the highlights of the tour is a day when we with the huskies are being transferred by a boat to an island. There we will have a lunch by the fire. You will have your own husky hiking with you the whole week. Our extra luggage is transported daily from the cabin to the next, which means that we only carry small back packs during the days.
Next week we will have the first guestst of the winter for our longest winter tour. Four days of dogsledding in a beautiful snowy wilderness. Our own private trails are now in a good shape, thanks for a proper snowfall during the last few weeks.
Also the puppies are growing up fast, being now big enough to jump on the armchairs. They both like to sleep on sheep hides, although Hurja has sometimes problems keeping the hide in a good order.
Kids are growing up so fast! Little baby-boy Friday, better known as PikkuPerjantai, has turned two years today. On his birthday he had a day-off with few others, while the rest were entertaining some russian guests. Picture below is taken last August at the sandy shores of Lake Lentua, in Kuhmo.
