Walk in the Woods

3-hour tour of our kennel & a relaxing walk in the woods to our private shore accompanied by our huskies for a campfire snack

Tour Description

A 3 hour program with a relaxing walk in the woods.

Our dogs love to run and cooling off in the water on a warm summer day is everyone’s pleasure.

After a short briefing at the kennel, we head off into the woods for a walk to our private shore. Some of our dogs will follow free or walk with you on a leash. The north shore of Viiksjärvi has some beautiful picnic spots and we will stop for a campfire snack while enjoying the view and the company of our dogs.

Depending on the weather conditions we can visit the ancient Viking burial grounds from 1300’s located about 1 km from the kennel.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, unfortunately not. On this tour you will be going for a walk in the woods, sometimes also off trail. If your child cannot walk by itself, we do not recommend booking this tour. Even for small children who can already walk, this tour might be very challenging. Ideally, your child should be steady on their feet when joining this program.

Our guides will determine the route depending on the weather, the trail conditions, and the physical fitness of the participants. The trails can vary between forest roads and swampy areas.

We recommend that you bring comfortable clothes that you can spend time outside and move in comfortably. We also recommend wearing sturdy and waterproof hiking boots with good support. If need be, we can also provide you with rubber boots. Please also dress according to the weather and wear something where you would not mind that it gets a little bit dirty.

The length of the walk will depend on the physical fitness of the participants and everyone’s forest walking abilities, but time wise the walk is anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.

Campfire lätty (pancakes) or makkara (sausages) made on the fire are the most common options that we will be offering. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions prior to your tour date.

This is a long tour and you will be having a forest walk, so having something easy to eat with you is a good idea. We will provide you with a snack towards the end of the tour, as explained above. However, feel free to also bring some small food of your own if you like. Taking something to drink is advisable, but we are selling some here at our kennel as well.

The transfers from the chosen locations are included in the price of the tour. But if you will not be using our transfers for the tour, you can meet closeby to our kennel by the locked gate. Our guide will then meet you there and lead you to our kennel area to park your vehicle. You will get a google maps link to the exact meeting location when you make your booking.
