Top 3 summer activities in the land of the Sami

Try canoeing on the Karasjohka River and sleeping in a Sami lavvo out in the wilderness. Or visit a bunch of friendly huskies in their kennel.

Canoeing on the Karasjohka River

Join a guided canoe trip on the Karasjohka River. The wilderness is just a few paddle strokes from Karasjok, taking you into a landscape of forests, rivers and lakes. 

Summer Husky Camp 

In the summer, the huskies at Engholm Husky Farm are out on an island in a lake. Paddle a canoe over to pay the dogs a visit. They will tell you loudly how happy they are to see you. Wilderness lunch included. 

Scout for a day

Walk or canoe to the camp site, set up a Sami lavvo, cook over the fire and spend the night just like a scout. Suitable for both families and adults. 

All the above activities are offered by Turgleder
