If you love dogs and real adventure, you've come to the right place - it couldn't be more Finland. "Bearhill Husky's" wooden cabin is right on a large lake and is surrounded by lots of nature and many outdoor activities - including with the huskies who are housed nearby. The family-run company wants to convey a love of the country and its people to its guests, while bringing them closer to sustainable tourism and animal welfare. In addition to the husky tours, there has been a holiday home since 2016 - a successful mix of living close to nature, modern living culture and Finnish tradition and wilderness.
The tastefully and minimalistically furnished hut for two people with natural materials - wood, wool, stone - has a bathroom and an outdoor toilet. In the well-equipped pantry kitchen you can cook something delicious and eat comfortably in front of the cozy fireplace. In addition to the wooden sauna and a whirlpool, the house also has a rowing boat and a grill. In summer you can rent bicycles and SUP boards.
Due to the unique location, it is very quiet and secluded here - without internet access - for a truly natural break. The Arctic Circle runs through Rovaniemi. It marks the southernmost possible latitude at which the sun is above or below the horizon for 24 hours, depending on the season. This phenomenon is also known as the midnight sun in summer or the polar night in winter. At night you can see a lot of stars here and with a bit of luck also the beautiful Northern Lights.

Social responsibility also plays a major role here. The employees come from the region and should be employed all year round and paid fairly. With regard to the work with the dogs for the excursions, animal welfare is meticulously observed and we work together with the University of Lapland for animal-friendly knowledge. Guests can see and learn how the dogs are doing and how they are being kept with complete transparency. Everyone is keen to raise awareness of animal welfare among guests. In the future, courses on the subject will also be offered to school children.
EnvironmentThe houses are built from local wood and are therefore naturally well insulated. The electricity comes from wind energy. Of course there are no disposable dishes and the waste is separated and composted. The vehicles are largely low-emission and there are a few e-car charging stations in the region. Solar panels and new electric vehicles are to be purchased soon.
