    Travelers can experience magic of north here in Lapland with darkness, snow and northenlights. In this area is possible to come familiar with Finnish and Sami cultures.

  • Help


    We would need help with taking care of the dogs. So most of the work will be feeding, cleaning, snow work and building dog teams ready to run.
    We will introduce volunteers with all tasks.
    All the tasks are physical outside work.
    We dont require volunteers to help with tours but it is possible to take part of that too if someone is willing to learn.
