Half board. We will start the morning with some adrenaline! We drive to the Husky dog farm where we will hear them barking, eager to come out with us. We will meet the mushers, who will explain how to control and drive the sled. Observing the surroundings of the farm, we get to know the life and habits of huskies. Soon we have our own sledding and dog team and when we pull off the huskies start pulling you quietly and happily. When we return, we can thank the dogs for their work and hug them, memorizing the moment with images. We'll warm up with coffee and a roll. Free afternoon. In the evening, get ready for an authentic Finnish experience! We drive to Iisakki's sauna, one of the first saunas to be awarded the certificate of Authentic Finnish Sauna Experience. The local sauna guide will tell us about the original sauna culture and why it is so important to the Finns. Enjoy a warm outdoor Jacuzzi or take a dip in the frozen lake hole. During the sauna experience, berry juice and water are served, as well as small snacks. After the sauna experience, it's time to enjoy a traditional Lappish buffet dinner with local delicacies.
