Eräkeskus - Aittokoski - Ruunaa

Because the Ruunaa Area is so beautiful...

Our week-offer with the most dog-intense program: 6 days dogsledding on different trails. At the beginning we make a warm-up-day to get back the feeling for runners and snow. Then we drive up north to the Aittokoski for an overnight-trip. And right after that, we drive to the Ruunaa-area for 2 nights and explore the trails there with rapids, lakes, rivers and the famous hanging bridges. 1 night in the forest house Aittokoski, 2 nights in the comfortable cottage in Ruunaa and 4 nights at Eräkeskus.

  • small groups with maximum 4 participants
  • technically demanding trails only for experienceds mushers
  • almost no scooter-traffic in North Carelia
  • minimum number of participants: 2
