The early spring days in Lapland are becoming longer and longer. We are currently enjoying lots of clear skies - meaning sunshine during the days and northern lights in the evenings. A magical time!

Our work with and for the dogs is supported by many volunteer workers, who come to enjoy a wonderful time-out with lots of new experiences here in Lapland. This week in our "workers of Äkäskero" series you can learn more about Cora. After her time with us she is going to study, aiming to make the world of building more sustainable - good luck and much success! 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

I remember a warm night in this cabin... Upstairs was like a sauna 😅
Wonderful memories Christmas eve 2015. A full moon night and very hot upstairs 😍
Nothing has changed in eight years!😍
It’s time to talk about the birds and the bees 🕊️🐝🥰
Goldie (2015) and Jakal (2015) are some of the lucky chosen ones to be paired up this year, thanks to their strong mental and physical capabilities, their great personalities and of course their good looks 😍😜
Let’s hope we get some mini superstars this summer 🥰🍼✨

I had goldie in my squad. She is so sweet. Can‘t wait to see the puppies from them.
Actually we call this time of the year spring-winter. You can see why: temperatures can and do drop to minus 25 - 30 in the night but might be minus 5 during daytime. It is the time, Scandinaviens come to Lapland for their holidays. Maybe you too. Our last tours will end 22nd of April. ... See MoreSee Less

Lapland's winter is turning into early spring with lots of sunshine warming the skin. Both people and dogs could already enjoy their first sunbath for this year 😊

Mega schöne Aufnahmen von der Wildnistour und großes Lob an den Schöpfer des Videos! 👏🐶 Ich hab immer das Gefühl, dass ich da oben in einer gigantischen Schneekugel bin, zu der man nur mit dem Hundeschlitten Zutritt bekommt. Überirdisch schön! 🤩
Was für ein wundervolles Video. Genau so habe ich es auch erlebt. Nun warte ich, mit Wehmut auf meinern Transfair nach Kittilä.🥰
Traumhaft schöne Genuss Momente für die Augen Vielen Dank für dieses tolle Video 😍
Danke für dieses wunderschöne Video. Irgendwie hab ich mich gefühlt als stehe ich mit auf dem Schlitten.
It is also important to take a break after a long run, to gain some more energy💪💪
Gröenland's dogs can teach us how to do that😴😅 ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you for the hospitality and phantastic time we could spend with the dogs and nature🐾🤩
This week in our little "people of Äkäskero" series: Gesa. She joined us as a trainee and is now working her first season as a guide in our team. You will meet her in the "Ellesmere" kennel, amidst our young male dogs that might qualify for breeding. Their level of energy and testosterone is high, but no problem for Gesa! ... See MoreSee Less
this is how tour with Ellesmere look like😊 ... See MoreSee Less
And as one of the tour participants, I can testify that the Ellesmere "Boys" are truly amazing! BIG cheers and hugs to Othello, Emmonak, Quake & Kotka! Missing them already... 😍

Kangosjärvi? Yes Maan and I did. Was freaking cold in January 2015 with our wondeful guide Lisa. -38 Celsius.
Yes many many years ago, snoopy was my lead dog 😍
YES! Thx for this.
Yes and I miss it!

We stakeout train our pups so that when they are ready to run, they will have an easy time waiting on the stakeout at the start of a tour or overnight at our wilderness cabins.
The ‘R’ litter just smashed it from the beginning 🏆👏
A little meaty distraction always helps of course 🥩 and it teaches them that stakeout equals good things!💪

Kuusi one year ago .... it was so fantastic 🤩
Kuusi was my first stay and is still my favourite.
See you next week 😍
My favorite 🤩
Oh wie toll. Es ist Jahre her, als ich dort war.. Super urig..
Ich war 2008 dort. Ja mit Stirnlampe nachts auf das " Klo". Es war eine wunderschöne Reise. Werde jetzt 70 und kann es leider nicht wiederholen.
Eine der schönsten Hütten. Hab sicher schon 7-8 mal drin übernachtet. Einfach urig und gemütlich. Und das tollste: in 6 Wochen bin ich wieder oben !
Das war meine erste Hütte am letzten Montag. Eine wunderbare Zeit liegt hinter mir und jetzt warte ich auf den Transfair nach Kittilä.🥰
War einfach toll 😱😱🥰
Die Hütte war toll🥰… Nachts mit Stirnlampe aufs Klo😂
Kenn ich doch 😍

Alaska is roaring to go, meanwhile Gazelle is not sure about her noisy neighbour 👀😂
Starts are always high energy but once running, the pairs fall into a harmonious rhythm 💪 This Finnmark duo are a match made in heaven and even colour coordinated 🤍🖤

The sun has properly returned to Lapland. For many of us here at Äkäskero this means that our favourite time of the year is about to start. The high season of dog sledding is coming!

These yummy shades light up our skies during the mystical polar night months and into the beginning of the new year. In late January, the sun finally returns for a few minutes to warm our skin, marking the end of true polar night in Lapland. Eatable isn’t it? ☺️

Oh ! Such great memories with the oldies ! They are the best !
I absolutely agree. Very much looking forward to see Elisabeth again in September. And give the oldies as many cuddles as they deserve (though I might not be there long enough for it) 🙂
Definitely a staff member to remember. Elisabeth: An angel & power dogmom! 😍❄️🐺🐾
Kann ich nur bestätigen. Danke dir für die vielen Informationen über die Hunde, die ich von dir bekommen habe. Und auch sogar in der Krankstation mit helfen durfte. Ich vermisse euch alle.
Resistance against the cold: me = 2 😉🥶… Gruss an euren 😇
When the old year is over and the new year is luring us into new adventurs we start to prepare for our Panoramatour. As you know: only for those who already participated in a wilderness-tour. It can be very demanding ... See MoreSee Less
This tour is my dream 🤩🙏 I already participated in the Wilderness Tour years ago and this was already amazing.
It is demanding, but great!
Wir freuen uns 😍
Ich erinnere mich gerne an diese Bilder - das war eine super Tour
🌬🌲🌚Driving a team of sled dogs gives you the perfect opportunity to be active, both physically and mentally, while breathing Europes cleanest air and experiencing the beauty of the northern winter mood all day long. 🐕🛷🏃 ... See MoreSee Less
One of the most fabulous experience you can imagine 🤩
Das waren meine schönsten Urlaube ! ☺️
A trip for me 20 years ago that was live changing- going myself almost exact two years later to Rovaniemi taking higher Education in every possible way for three years 😆
🎆Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Lappland and start the new year in a dreamy cabin where you can relax and admire the landscape near a lake or on an exciting overnight trip with our Huskies, walk over a nearby frozen lake or through the magical snowy winter forest at night or day and enjoy your unique experience here in Lapland. We wish you all a happy New Year 2023 and hope to welcome you soon/again in our Äkäskero Sleddogcenter! 🐾 ... See MoreSee Less
It always will be a magical place 💗 happy new year to the doggies as well x

☃️🌠Lapland is still experiencing some fairly chilly days with a bit of snowfall every now and then. The trees look more like some big trolls watching over you while snowshoeing/skiing/hiking/sledding through the magical winter forest. The changes of the light throughout the day are really captivating and the northern lights in the night sky a real treat. And all you need at the end of the day is a warm, cosy fire where you enjoy some hot drinks and a bite to eat 🔥🪵 ... See MoreSee Less
Le paradis 🙏😘
J'imagine...un rêve sans doute ! Joyeuses fêtes à vous .
Wir freuen uns im März 2023 wieder bei euch zu sein.

Äkäskero the "snowhole" of Lapland. When others have to cancel their tours because of not enough snow, we are out and our tours are on.
🤓🥩Trying to teach TULCA, TUULI, TASIILAQ, TENO & TALVIK some patience when it comes to feeding. Daddy ZIMBA definitely passed on the squeaky voice and a certain degree of madness. They still need to learn a lot but they are already doing a pretty good job eating from their own bowl, don’t you think? 🤪🙈 ... See MoreSee Less
What a job!

🗻☃️Here are some more winter impressions from Finnish Lapland. We had a few days with minus twenty degrees so the smaller lakes are already frozen but the rivers not quite yet.

Besides our dogs we like most the 1000 kinds of lights in the north. Thanks to Oryan for the great work
🌅 Soon we are slipping into polar night, in Finnish known as Kaamos, during which there is no sunrise above the Arctic Circle. Although the sun stays below the horizon, sunlight still reaches the upper layers of the atmosphere, allowing some colorful light through. Blue and soft violett tones are typical for the polar night sky.
Even though the sun officially still rises for about three hours, we already experience some nice mysterious morning and evening sky colors. 🌌 ... See MoreSee Less
As usual the most beautiful natural light ever !
My favorite color 💜💙💜💙💜💙💜
🤔Do you remember our first litter from this year, the R-litter? They are now 4 months old and - as you can see - have incredibly big ears 😆
🦮 All now listen to the command sit and are already quite comfortable with the collar and the leash.
However, RAFIKI & RAKAS seem to be the late bloomer of this litter, needing a little longer to understand and learn certain things ☺️ ... See MoreSee Less
So viele Buben 😀
