Best morning ever
We’ve had the best morning with Aksana, her, husband and their family of huskies. You couldn’t find a more idyllic and dream like location if you tried. The huskies are well looked after and very content. Go and see for yourselves. Highly recommend!

After having experienced many different safari providers in Lapland, I can tell you that none match the wholeistic, personalized, intuitive and plainly loving approach taken by Aksana and her partner Anti of Husky, Yoga and Nature. This inspiring couple have opened up their home to 18 perky husky pups, and the lucky traveler. My girlfriend and I recently had the pleasure of participating in their 20km husky sledding safari. The first part of the journey took place on the ice covered Sierijärvi lake, which was a great introduction, building up confidence, balance and repore with our ecstatic husky friends. The second was an adventure through boreal forests that climaxed with a downhill track that was as safe as it was fantastic and exciting. This is not your run of the mill husky tour. After we returned to the husky homestead, it was our greatest joy to take part in deharnessing the happy huskies. Aksana offered that we may give our husky heros a well deserved massage. It was amazing! There was so much love, my heart smiles even at this memories recollection.

Thank you Husky, Yoga and Nature, for your service to these wonderful creatures, the sustainability of the planet and the Lappish traveler community.

Amazing dog sledding
Feb. 2020 • Friends
I can’t say enough about Aksana and Antti! This trip exceeded our expectations! They were both so welcoming and supportive on our trip. Their dogs were beautiful and strong. This trip took us into the forest and we felt like real mushers. My daughter and I both got to run our own sled and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend Aksana and Antti they are both wonderful people.

Husky Visit- Arctic lake paddle and reindeer farm
Aug. 2019 • Family
Being able to visit a family owned Husky farm is rare and very special . The care and kindness given to and from all of the dogs is impossible to miss. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us.

The paddle across the arctic lake was peaceful, safe and left us with a feeling of accomplishment!

The reindeer farm visit was like nothing we've experienced before. Seeing the reindeer come running out of the forest was unforgettable along with being able to hand feed the beautiful creatures. Learning about the daily life for the farm gave us all a better understanding of the importance of tradition and more importantly, nature itself.

All in all, a big thank you and we would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area to book an experience with yoganature.fi

Falling short of cited expectations
Dec. 2018 • Family
My wife, daughter and I travelled to Rovaniemi during the Christmas season. Our friends had visited the year before and had highly recommended Husky & Yoga Nature (run by Aksana) as a great unique experience. So, after checking out the website then paying, we arranged to meet at a very specific time at our hotel for pick-up.
Our friends gave us a detailed description of their experience, which was all confirmed by the blurb on the website... the husky mush is ' at least 3 hours...' This we assumed (wrongly it turned out) to be 3 hours once mushing on the ice. For my family and I, this sadly wasn't the case.
The journey from the hotel to the house on the (frozen) lake took about 20 minutes, no more. And once there getting kitted up another 20 minutes...no more than 30. Once on the ice we were given instructions from Aksana's husband, and then we were off. This was as promised, amazing, wonderful, beautiful and so worth it! BUT - after about 40 minutes it was all done. We went back to the house, de-kitted and then had a delightful 45 minutes getting warm, drinking tea, eating pancakes and chatting. While the husband was very relaxed, Aksana did seem to project an air of brisk business time-watching, when her friendliness changed telling her husband we needed to go - suggesting there were others coming soon... Anyway, we were promptly taken back to our hotel. So, here's my quibble: in all, our whole package (to and from the hotel, the mush on the lake and the breakfast) was actually 2 hours and 40 minutes, and I think I'm being a little generous there... Chatting with our friends on our return it was clear that they had quite a bit longer on the lake, and they felt that their overall trip was nearer to 4 and a half hours...
Well, Husky & Yoga Nature isn't cheap, and while we knew that, we were/are still disappointed given our experience.
My guess is that Aksana had (almost..?) double booked, or certainly got her timings array, so our group got squeezed into a tight schedule.
Advise: MAKE SURE YOU GET THE FULL 3 HOUR EXPERIENCE BY CHECKING WITH AKSANA THAT THE QUOTED TIME a) DOESN'T INCLUDE THE HOTEL PICKUP/RETURN, AND THAT YOU'RE ON THE LAKE (YES, IT'S COLD!) FAR LONGER THAN YOU ARE HAVING TEA AND PANCAKES!!

Dear mr. JF thank you for your review! You visited us 20.12. and I remember that we talked before on the phone and I have also checked our emails. You made reservation for Private visit for families. Which is described on our website: This is really nice experience for the individuals and families with small children. We have huskies and a cat. Join us and feel part of the team. You will learn how to drive the sled and the children can sit in the sled in the warmth of the winter sleeping bag. We cross easy terrain, over the frozen lake. We will have a little break to drink hot juice and hug and play with the huskies. When we come back to our house, we will make a delicious pancakesin the warm of the house or by the campfire for a picnic depending on weather. And there is time just to relax and hug huskies. Duration 2 1⁄2 hours This is where we take people with small children as in december it can be very cold weather. So this is just safety reason. Your friends Mr and Mrs D.H. who did recommend us for you and have visited us year before did do Be a musher – 25 km tour in the wilderness. Which is totally about 3-4 hours and can be sometimes even longer depending on snow conditions and drivers skills. So during that day you viisted us we had one more family cooming. Totally 2 families per day even it is our busiest time but we want to give time for the families. The price for this is 480e per family ( 2 adults and 1 or 2 children when the children are under 8 years old) which is very good for the private visit. If you compare oher husky farms with similar products – price for one adult is 229e per adult and 89e per child – all together 547e for family your size – and that is not private so there can be even hundred other people with you. This what we do is our life style and compassion. Our dogs are family members, all pancakes are made organic products and really home made. I am very sad that you had just a bad feelings and that you kept that inside of you for half of the year. We could have talked about and it seems that I haven’t been telling you exactly the right things. I am very sorry for that. I wish you and for your family all the best! Kindest regards, Aksana

A 'must do' tour!
Dec. 2018 • Family
Aksana & Antti and their Huskies offer a truly special experience and are a 'must do' activity if visiting Lapland.
Their business is family run from their home and their Huskies are part of the family each with their own character and story.
You get something special doing this tour that you wouldn't with the larger more commercial Husky farms.
The lake you ride on is stunning and with only us on it, it was serene and breathtaking.
Aksana & Antti were very friendly and knowledgeable putting us and our young daughters (6 & 2) at ease from the beginning. My husband and I both got to ride our own sleighs with the little ones snuggly tucked up safely in front.
Afterwards we were invited into their lovely home for pancakes and hot chocolate and the chance to meet and pet a couple of their retired Huskies.
The whole trip was absolutely amazing and the highlight of our trip to Lapland!
Thankyou A&A

If you are in Finnlad/Lapland you 100% must meet Aksanna and her lovely family. Me and my boyfriend did the husky musher activity last week and I can honestly say that it was the best experience we have both ever had. It literally made our holiday. Thank you again for letting us meet your wonderful family. Your huskys are the best!!

A unique and truly breathtaking experience.
Feb. 2019 • Couples
If you want to book a husky trip whilst visiting lapland we highly recommend this, you will not be disappointed. It was personal, very well run and the dogs that are so well cared for.

We booked the Husky tour for February 1st 2019. We were staying in an Airbnb nearby and asked our host for recommendations for a Husky tour. She told us about the private tours with Aksana & Antti which sounded perfect for us. We travelled as a family of 6 adults our ages 21 to 58yrs. I contacted Aksana several times before the tour, she was so helpful and answered any questions we had when booking. We choose to do a longer tour, this was such a good decision.

Aksana and Antti can arrange to pick people up, we were able to walk to the location as we were staying very close to them. We were met as we arrived at the house by Aksana & Antti and their beautiful and very excited huskies. We were introduced to each of the dogs and told their names. Aksana & Antti provided more layers and big cosy down jackets for us to put over our snow suits to ensure we were warm and cosy for the trip. We were given very good instruction on how to control the sledges. We had 3 drive and 3 sat in the sledge. We could swap as often as we wanted to. It was great in the sledge, very cosy!
The scenery was breath-taking. It was so beautiful and tranquil as we crossed the frozen Sierijärvi lake and entered the woods following an up and down trail that the huskies obviously knew well. Meanwhile, Aksana and Antti were following us on a snowmobile. They were there if we needed help but otherwise remained a discreet distance from us, it felt as if the 6 of us and the huskies were the only ones out there. It was amazing.

Our trip was about 25-30km, more than 3 hours long. We stopped in the woods to warm by a fire half way through the trip. Aksana and Antti cooked a variety of delicious sausages and we also enjoyed delicious warm berry juice while the huskies played and rolled in the snow to cool off. The dogs were beautiful and obviously very well cared for, treated as part of the family. It was lovely to learn about life with huskies as we chatted around the fire. It was relaxed, just as friends would chat. When we arrived back at the farm, we could spend time with the huskies, we were not at all rushed at any stage. My daughter left something at the farm and Aksana kindly walked it around to us in our cottage.

We highly recommend Husky and Yoga Nature, it is not a big tourist attraction it’s so much more personal and incredibly well run. Its a family business, a truly unforgettable experience. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Lapland.
Thank you Aksana and Antti for a wonderful day and the incredible photos you took for us. We hope to come back and do it again sometime!

Amazing family experience!
Dec. 2018 • Family
We booked a private husky tour in late December. Although we had a rental SUV, it was better to be transported in their large roomy van. I was in such a hurry, I forgot to change into my winter boots and wore my hiking boots. Antti provided me a pair of warm winter boots to wear.
It was perfect winter conditions and initially our 9-year old daughter rode in the sleigh under a reindeer blanket. After being familiarized with the dogs and how to steer and brake the sled, we followed a predetermined path. Meanwhile, Aksana and Antti kept a watchful eye while following parallel on a snowmobile. At the end of our sledding trip, our daughter stood in front of me and we both balanced on the wooden rails and she steered the the huskies. After returning to their home we were invited inside to eat some delicious homemade pancakes and jam. What a great and memorable experience!
