Upon your arrival at Kajaani Airport you will be met and transferred to Hotel Kalevala.  This evening enjoy a welcome drink and dinner at the hotel.  

Day 2  Family Fun with the Huskies  
After breakfast transfer to the husky farm, where you can see the husky kennels and meet the puppies and huskies. Then enjoy on a short husky sleigh ride, followed by local pastries and hot drinks in front of an open fire. After returning to the hotel, you might like to do some tobogganing, kick-sledding or cross country skiing.  Enjoy an evening sauna and jacuzzi before dinner at the hotel.
