Visit our award-winning basecamp to meet some real arctic huskies or to take part in dog-mushing safaris, ski or snowmobile tours (in winter) or husky hikes, paddling adventures, etc (in summer).
Our parent company is 'CAPE Lapland' Oy, Finland’s 'Centre for Arctic and Polar Exploration'.
Think ‘husky’ and your immediate image is of a dog sleigh traversing frozen arctic tundra in winter or spring months. However, our dogs live, eat and train in Enontekiö year-round and they love being visited by, hiking and training with clients Also in the summer and autumn months.
In the winter months, CAPE Lapland Oy & Hetta Huskies offers guided wilderness journeys by huskies, snowshoe, snowmobile and ski and in the summer, guided & facilitated paddling trips and courses, as well as mountain-biking & hiking journeys.
Year round, we run arctic guide-training and bushcraft & wilderness survival courses and have a wide variety of outdoor equipment available for rent, (eg skis, snowshoes, kayaks and canoes).
We are open from c. 8 am-8pm daily but the best time to visit (i.e. when we are not feeding or cleaning the dogs), is between c.10am and 4.30pm. In the winter months, it is best to call ahead since we might not be able to run spontaneous safaris or tours. In summer, unless you have a specific language requirement for a tour, we can normally accommodate walk-in requests.
We are based c. 4 km from the centre of Hetta, in the direction of the airport. Just look out for the large wooden sign beside the road which reads ‘Huskies’ and our business name, ‘CAPE Lapland’.
