Husky Ranch Lapland is home for 20 Alaskan huskies and long distance musher Juho Ylipiessa and his spouse Hanna Talvensaari. Our ranch is a place for dog lovers and nature enthusiastics. When you come to our ranch for any kind of husky adventure you also get to take a peek into our arctic life style. You'll see how our dogs and we are living our lives 150 km north of the arctic circle!
The big wilderness begins straight at our front door. If you head south-east the next village is 50 km away! The surroundings are a mixture of old taiga forests, little creeks and lakes and big wet lands. The biggest mire area in Europe called Teuravuoma is only a few kilometers from the ranch. Open landscape miles ahead makes an amazing setting for dog mushing and hunting the northern lights and starry skies. This is a perfect place for dog powered adventures!
The homestead was built in the 1920's and the house itself is one of the few buildings that were saved during the 2nd World War in Lapland. Through the years the ranch has seen different types of farming. It has had sheep, cows and horses and, of course, cats and dogs. We have transformed it into a full-time husky ranch with cosy kennels and individual doghouses and one big (1500m2) freerunning pen where they have fun when not pulling sleds or carts.
