Day 3. Arctic Animal Day
During this day, two options are available to you:
- We will leave for Ranua Zoo (1h20 drive) which specializes in arctic and northern animal species, with about 150 animals. The meeting of the animals is done along the course of about 3km. Snack break along the route.
- Or go and meet a reindeer herder, with a sleigh ride if you wish (duration of the activity 2 hours). The rest of the day is dedicated to Nordic skiing. A very popular sport in Finland that we can take advantage of to discover its sensations. If you don't want to ski, you can go on an initiation hike with the dogs for example.
Day 4. Hike to Riisitunturi National Park
We will explore the frozen tree called “Tykky” in Riisitunturi National Parks. The hike, crossing the boreal forest and overlooking Lake Kitka, will provide us with the perfect setting to make the most of this day. It will also be a place of exchange and sharing during the lunch break around the fire, providing a good atmosphere among the guests. After this beautiful excursion, if we still have time, we will discover a small museum and the Pentik shop (Posio center).
Day 5. Cani-hiking
We will leave for a day on snowshoes with the dogs. They will help us with a suitable belt. A unique and authentic experience of sharing between man and dog. The hike offers us an idyllic setting of landscapes in Lapland. Picnic along the route.
