We went for a two day husky safari with the dogs and guides of this farm. It was fantastic being in the wild of Lapland. The landscape is incredible. Very friendly and experienced guides made this trip unforgettable. The husky farm looks very clean and dogs have enough space to play and rest after their hard work. They love the people who work at the farm! I will certainly come back.
We arrived in Finn-Jaan Farm with me unwell after the flight. Timo, the wonderful and kind owner of the farm arrived to pick us up from our hotel and even though he runs a busy farm, accompanied us to the local hospital were he patiently waited until I had my medications. We arrived at the farm which was beautiful with red cottages and a lodge style main house and separate sauna. The 80 dogs in the farm all looked happy, healthy and incredibly well looked after! As we got on our sledges, the dogs were rearing to go and we drove through an almost fairytale like scenery to a cottage in the woods with a wood burning fireplace and a separate outhouse as a sauna. We fed the dogs and settled them into their little homes. That evening we had a lovely homemade meal prepared by the cook at the farm and relaxed in the sauna and outside under the stars. Our fabulous guide Hanne was absolutely wonderful and I was surprised to discover we both shared the same birthday as we celebrated! Next day we went through the valleys and arrived at our lunch place on top of a hill with stunning views and the sun shining. Our guide lit a fire in the snow and put on a traditional kettle to brew as we had hot grilled sandwiches and soups. We returned to the farm that evening and spend it in the sauna and playing with the puppies who ran around the house in delight. They were absolutely beautiful and I wanted to take them home. Met some interesting people over diner and finally it was time to say a sad goodbye the next day as we left for iso-syote. It was all perfect and so very life changing for me as I have returned back home, and had the courage to do something I always wanted to, starting a canine physiotherapy course and hoping to volunteer with these wonderful animals in the future and making a difference! Thank You Timo, Hanne and his Team.…
Timo and his dogs give you one of the greatest days you will experience in Finland. A fantastic day travelling through the Finish countryside pulled along by a team of amazing dogs. Lunch prepared over a log fire was delicious and was just another plus to add to all the others. I cannot recommend this day to strongly. It could only be surpassed I feel by the two day husky safari, another time perhaps?
In Jan. 2014 I decided to do a complete different vacation as other years and I booked a trip to Finn-Jann Huskyfarm in Finland. I was very much looking forward to a lot of snow and the sled journeys. Little did I know I would end up in -30°C in an icy cold and snow filled Winter Wonderland :-) Because that is what it is: a magical Winter Wonderland where it's just you, the dogs, the sled and the snow - and awesome guides from Finn-Jann! Although I managed to miss a corner once every so often :-) I enjoyed the experience 100% and more - there is a reason I am going back this Feb. 2015! I'm eager to go back and meet the team, meet the (new) dogs and get out there on the sled! I would very much recommend this activity as it is a unique experience!
One of our best travel !!! If you look for : - Wildlife - Friendliness - Beautiful landscapes - Adventure - Sport - Cold (but it can be hot) - Happiness - Good food - .... Here is the Place !! Timo and his team only want to make you feel you are the best sled driver in the world !! Do not hesitate to stay several days, and sleep in the cabines. After you will say "Kiitos" !! ("Thank you" in Finnish).
