What are we going to do

This is really nice experience for the individuals and families with small children. We have huskies and a cat. Join us and feel part of the team. You will learn how to drive the sled and the children can sit in the sled in the warmth of the winter sleeping bag.
We cross easy terrain, over the frozen lake. We will have a little break to drink hot juice and hug and play with the huskies. When we come back to our house, we will make a delicious pancakesin the warm of the house or by the campfire for a picnic depending on weather. And there is time just to relax and hug huskies.

About aksana - the Doer

Aksana and Antti adventurous couple has worked in the great outdoors for 20 years. They have filmed their trips, written hundreds of articles, and based on their outdoor experience they have been involved in the product development of outdoor supplies.
Antti is a professional photographer and guide who particularly focuses on outdoor photography. He has done photography for advertising for a number of large enterprises. He also owns his own
brand Kurola Photography, making it possible to express his artistic impressions of the beauty of nature. Antti’s images have been used to decorate a number of hotels and he has held a number of photography exhibitions. The Finnish Post Office has also used his pictures for its stamps. Antti has a photography gallery at his work premises.
Aksana organises yoga trekking and retreats all over Lapland and at her home in Sierijärvi, Tuulenpesä Husky Home.
Nature provides content for Aksana’s tales, the treks she organises, yoga practice and training sessions.
Nature with its fantastic diversity, delicious wild food made from natural produce, yoga, meditation, ease of breathing, yoga treks, husky sled rides, and meeting lovely people are the things they love most about their work.
“It is wonderful to be able to offer unforgettable experiences for people visiting Lapland. Seeing how we give people so many happy moments makes us happy.” “
Aksana’s own yoga experiences started back in 1991 and she has worked as a full-time yoga teacher for around five years. Her special focus is on yoga therapy.
Perhaps the greatest and most significant learning processes for Aksana have been obtained from spending long times alone in the wilderness. The wilderness facilitates a deepening of life’s levels: to feel, comprehend and internalise.
“The most important and intrinsic learning I have received is listening to my own heart. Time needs to be reserved for taking a moment to stop and feel the strength of presence and internal wisdom.
Through my own misfortunes, thankfulness, leniency, resilience, loving oneself as one is and the power of focusing on life’s positive sides have become significant issues.”
We hope that our paths will one day cross and we can head towards a balanced, prosperous life, and the life that suits you best – or perhaps experience an unforgettable moment on your trip to Lapland.
The fantastic experiences we feel are important and unique are precisely what we want to share with others.

Anja and

Dear Antti and Aksana,
It was amazing. We’d like to thank you for a beautiful tour with the Huskies. They are so kind. A great Huskies-tour, About ca 25 km on the frozen lake and the forecast as well to. Even the BBQ was super. A wild-outdoor fire with sausage and mustard with berry-juice and a tee.
So after we could play and cuddling with 16-17 dogs.
So good luck for the future and we wish you al the best.
Hope sometimes to come back.

Greatest memory ever.

We wanted to take a husky sleigh ride, but didn’t want to pay too much for a touristic 20 minute ride. So this was exactly what we wanted. It was just Antti and the two of us.

This Trip was everything we hoped it to be. First we were picked up at our apartment and took the short ride to their home. We got some warm clothes from them and went to meet the dogs. Antti then prepared the sleds and we began our two hour ride. With a short break for a tea in the middle we had the best time ever. The dogs enjoyed it as well. They didn’t like the break though.

Back home the dogs were fed, we drank a coffee and Antti drove us to the reindeer farm next door.

We will definitely be back.
