Q Accommodation

At the foot of Äkäskero fell, between two small lakes, traditional cabins for rent year-round. The cabins have one bedroom each with a double bed. There is also a bigger two-story log cabin, Pränttikero, which has three bedrooms. All cabins have a spacious living room, an open plan kitchen, sauna, and bathroom/toilet. Pränttikero has two toilets, one on each floor.

The Husky Village has four modern, comfortable and well-equipped log cabins, each with three bedrooms, two bathrooms with toilet and shower, a well-equipped modern kitchen and a comfortable spacious lounge with a wood-burning stove. Next to the cottages is Kota; a traditional Finnish hexagonal cottage that serves as a restaurant and meeting place for the residents of Husky Village. The Husky Village also has two barrel saunas and two hot tubs.

During the winter dog sledding, Husky Village provides a warm and welcoming base at the beginning and end of our week-long wilderness trips. In summer, the comfortable cottages can be booked on a self-catering basis for adventures or just for peaceful relaxation in the heart of Lapland.

Q Akäskero Sleddogcenter

Äkäskero has special dog yards that allow dogs to live in a family-like environment. This is not the cheapest or easiest dog handling system, but definitely the most animal friendly. In order to work with this system, the staff is made up of people who truly understand the needs of dogs. Each guide is responsible for one kennel with a total of about 40 dogs. The guides are responsible for feeding dogs, supervising play and social behavior, training dogs, taking care of dog health, planning offspring, and arranging sleigh rides with guests.

Q Huskyprograms

A day or half day tour is the ideal start to sled dog adventure. All customers are driving their “own” team of huskies. Sitting on the sled with a beginner driving it is not the most fun and can be dangerous as well. Äkäskero organize tours from Monday to Friday and there is no minimum number of participants, max. seven persons per group.

The Äkäskero wilderness tour is a popular trip for all dog enthusiasts who have always wanted to spend a week in the almost untouched winter landscape of Lapland and at the same time experience the fun of a sled dog ride.

The demanding Panorama Tour is a highlight for anyone who has already taken part in a tour of at least a week. Depending on the weather and conditions, you will experience a dream trip or perhaps also a tour that will take you to test your limits.
