Come and experience the age-old way of life of the Arctic folk, and learn about the life of Arctic sled dogs!
Visit the Husky Park at the village of Köngäs, where app. hundred cute dogs will happily greet you. Friendly Siberian huskies and playful light-coloured Japanese spitzes greet all visitors with wagging tails, and, if you are lucky, you'll get a wet lick on the face, a canine kiss.
At first glance, the majestic-looking wolf hybrids that have starred in films can seem a little frightening, but closer inspection reveals that they are just as good-natured and curious as all the other residents of the dog park. Under the guidance of their handlers, these playful dogs will demonstrate some wonderful tricks that they have learned. And let's not forget the cute husky puppies, several litters of which are born every year, so that canines of all ages can almost always be seen at the park. You can sit for a while in a 'kota' to view a video telling about sled dogs and dog-racing. Then you might get a fluffy Japanese spitz, who, after some petting, may fall asleep in your lap. The handlers are also very eager to tell unforgettable tales about the lives of the dogs and what they do with them.
As well as dogs, you will also meet reindeer, of whom you can get a real reindeer kiss. How this happens, we will not reveal. You must come and experience it for yourself!
