We offer you a self-guided husky safari with a track length 10 km. Approximate safari time is 35-40 min
Safari time varies, as it always includes stop-over and it’s dependent on the weather conditions. During the stop-over musher and passenger can change places.
We use 3 husky-kennels, located about 30 min drive from Levi center. In all kennels owners are professional sport dog mushers and have specially trained Arctic-Alaskan breed huskies. This breed was created by cross-breeding in the beginning of 20th century in Alaska especially for dog racing during the Gold rush period. There are over 50 dogs in each kennel, including some Siberian huskies and puppies.
Upon arrival, you will get complete instructions of driving (guiding) the dog sledge on your own and then immediately start the safari. The track lies partly in the forest and partly on a beautiful frozen river (depending on the kennel). After the ride you can walk around the kennel, pet the dogs and take photos with them. Inside a cozy teepee where you can warm up around the open fire, have a hot drink with cookie. The host will tell about life with the dogs and answer questions.
- Self-guided husky safari
- Gingerbread cookies and hot berry juice
- Winter clothing
- Single supplement for husky safari self-guided
Please always bear in mind that one sledge can take max. 2 adults + 1 small child (under 7 y.o.). Final decision about seating is taken by the host on the spot, as it can depend on participants weight, height, etc.
When you’re 2 persons: 1 adult + a child older than 7 y.o., both must pay adult price.
When you’re 3 persons: 2 adults + a child older than 7 y.o., one of the 3 persons (possibly a child) will seat as a passenger in another sledge, driven by a guide.
Single driving may be available for a supplement.
We strongly recommend wearing warm winter clothing. It can be rented separately before the departure from the Safarimarket office in Levi center.
It’s better to be overly warm dressed than “underdressed”, especially on longer safari programs. In cold weather, we recommend applying no-water based winter cream for face and cover tightly open skin areas.
Please take off your gloves/mittens when touching the huskies. They love to play with gloves and might break it easily. Do not be afraid of the dogs, as they are genetically friendly to people. Do not feed the dogs.
