Saija - Husky Safari
Saija - Husky Safari OverviewSaija is not about going wild, but about being free. It's an idyllic holiday for those in search of time out from today's busy lifestyle. This escape into the snowy wilderness, combined with the husky safari, sends you home refreshed and invigorated having recharged your batteries Saija-style.
Saija is a vision of just how you imagine the Finnish wilderness to be. Located on the shores of Lake Jokijärvi, this trip combines the excitement of dog sledding with spectacular surroundings and time to relax.
When it comes to the husky sledding, you will take charge of your own team of four to six dogs. You will never forget the thrill of driving these eager, dedicated dogs through North East Finland's huge arctic forests one minute, frozen swamps, lakes and rivers the next. At Saija it's ever-changing, awe-inspiring scenery all the way.
Around the lodge, there are many cross-country ski and snowshoe trails for exploring on your free day. There's also a chance to try out additional activities . A highlight among these is snowmobiling, which is a thrilling option.
From the moment you step through the door of Saija Lodge, you will sense the restful and homely atmosphere that the team here work so hard to maintain. Instant relaxation is inevitable, as you are welcomed into what feels like home and introduced to the other guests. From meals to activities, and even during your free time, you will feel part of a community in this cosy accommodation.
Staying in pretty log cabins at the all-wooden Lodge, your own private sauna helps you unwind and feel even more refreshed. The cosy restaurant is a short walk away and is where you will enjoy traditional Finnish home-cooked specialities and can chat with other guests after a day of dog sledding adventures.
