So glad to have visited this place. So glad that the owner is so passionate about what she is doing! You will have a chance to see some animals and know them better, to feed them and to observe them. They know all their HUSKIES by name. Not only is this an interesting place, it is educational top.

Such a great experience. We went there as a group of 3 people, kind of by surprise. We were lucky Tiina was reactive to our message on Facebook because we wrote her 2 days before going to her park. We visited the park for only 10€ and Tiina showed us the place (visit for only the 3 of us!) and... More

My wife and I toured the park on March 12, 2017. Tiina gave us a nice tour and excellent explanation of the animals. At this time of the year there are not a lot of different animals. We saw beautiful white arctic foxes, two huge pigs (Romeo and Juliet!) two raccoon dogs and of course about 35 huskies. Many of... More

Great for little kids interested in animals. Guide was very friendly to my boys and told us nice stories about arctic animals. Favorite was the kissing husky.

Fun experience with beautiful sceneries especially when we were dog sleighing on the frozen lake. You get to play with the dogs and meet with other animals as well such as Artic fox, wild boar, raccoon dog etc. We have great time with lovely owner, Tiina in this visit. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Amazing place, loved the Arctic foxes, even went in the cages with some of them!! Tiina was lovely and gave some brilliant talks while walking round looking at all the animals. Despite what she says she has very good English, she has done a brilliant job with Park and animals, very glad we managed to come here. All for only... More

We booked the day before for a trip. First, when we arrived we discovered the dogs, so excited to go running. A few instructions later and let's go for being a one hour musher. Of course, we took the warmest clothes we had, it was just enough. We got lucky with the weather, and the landscapes, in the beautiful shades... More

Definitely worth a visit for those in Ivalo that want a break from the more commercial tours avaiable. Wild Spirit Park is located just a couple of miles out of Ivalo and has a collection of Huskies, Artic Foxes, Wild Boar, Raccoon Dogs and others. The owners clearly have a great love of their animals and hopefully visiting helps them... More

What an experience. If you are coming to Saariselkä you should visit this place. It is very cold and you should wear good clothing if you are going for the dog ride. A lifetime experience and worth every penny. Tiina the owner of this place is such a nice person and she showed us around and gave us coffee and... More

Very much wanted to visit wild spirit park. We were fortunate that Tiina was very responsive to FB messaging and was able to accommodate us with our limited time. Always check open days and times with Tiina . We chose to catch a taxi to and from the park , as we were very limited time wise. Our hotel hotel... More
