What are we going to do

- Start after breakfast, around 10h30 from Eräkeskus to the loghouse Aittokoski, about 30min driving time
- we start making fire in the house and sauna to heat up; your guide is preparing the massage-room as well as snacks and beverages in the kitchen
- from 12 - 14/15h every guest gets his massage-treatment of 30-45min; before and after it you can enjoy the heated wooden sauna and just relax in the cosy warm main room of the loghouse
all guests take care of the sauna heating in common; fruits, tea and coffee is available all day
- to have a light lunch we offer to choose either a small BBQ at the fireplace/Laavu or to have a picnic (salad and baguette) at the sunny meadow
- later we are going to empty the sauna together, fill up wood inside and clean the kitchen, then get ready for the way back around 17/18h

About Eräkeskus - the Doer

We run our kennels since 18 years in the same place. We love nature, we love our dogs, work with them, ride a team of sleddogs in winter time, take them to the dog-pool in summertime - and we love to share this passion with you! And yes, all our dogs have names and not just numbers, they are part of the family! Welcome at the starting point of your trip: our huskyfarm named Eräkeskus! For me as an physiotherapist I am happy to be able to combine my profession and my passion - working in the nature with dogs, having guests and making people - who mostly become friends - happy and satisfied!


The combination of wilderness and wellness is really special - explore it by yourself..




very cool experience, dogs are lovely, guides are patient, trails are very nice! Loved especially the parts on the lake, as that was most relaxing! In the forest it is more challenging with ups & downs, soft parts, trees etc. Great adventure!
