Summer and Autumn Activities

Powerun Adventures is a homestead kennel with ca. 60 sled dogs, mostly Alaskan huskies. We have been competing all over the Europe with our dogs for over 20 years, and have plenty of championships in all the three distances /sprint, mid distance and long distance). We are again the Finnish champions in long distance in 2019. Our main focus is always on the dogs welfare and we have received also several times the “Best dog care” award, which is the most valuable prize among the mushers.

Our home and kennel are ca. 12km away from Ylläsjärvi and 20km from Äkäslompolo, in a village called Luosu. We are offering dog sledding tours in the winter time and kennel visits, husky hiking and wagon rides as a summer and autumn activities. We are happy to introduce our dogs and our lifestyle for you.

Husky Hiking

After a small briefing and introduction of the kennel and dogs, we will take some of them with us for a nice afternoon walk to the forest. Some dogs will follow us running free and some are coming along on a leash.

We will head to a nearby lake where you can swim with the dogs, and we will have some snacks with us to make a small picnic. Surely a memorable day for all dog-lovers!

Duration: 3 hours

Be a Dog Whisperer

How to approach a dog? Is someone in your family scared of dogs? What if a dog is scared of me? How do I know what a dog thinks about me? How do I give the right signals if I don’t want a dog to get any closer to me?

This program is made for families with dogs or who are thinking about getting one; or for those who are not so sure how to speak the same language as their furry friends.

During the three hours visit we will take you for a deep dive into our life and our way of getting on the same page with our dogs to see how they understand us and how we understand them. At some point we will make pancakes by the fire in our wooden teepee hut. This is always a private program so one family at the time can book the program.

Duration: 2,5 – 3,5 hours
Price for families: 150€
