Dog-sledding is one of the most popular activities in Jämsä. You can play with the huskies at the farm, take a little spin around a field, sit back and let the dogs take you for a ride or learn how to drive the team yourself. You can also head out on a long, 2 to 3-hour dog sled safari out into the magnificent winter lake country. Make some unforgettable memories with these heartwarming huskies!
Husky farm visits
In addition to dog sled rides, the Jämsä husky farms also offer dog kennel visits. Come and say hello to the joyful and friendly huskies that love to play and romp around. Jämsä’s enthusiastic four-pawed friends are eagerly awaiting your visit!
Jämsä has two husky farms which offer dog sledding trips in winter: Kievari Rantapirtti in Koskenpää and McAhon Safaris in Arvaja. McAhon safaris also offer dog sledding trips in Himos during the high season. You can ride as a passenger and let the dogs lead, or you can learn to steer them yourself. Experience husky-safaris on wheels.
