We have offered tours with our Alaskan Huskies in the snow-covered, beautiful landscapes of the Pallas-Ylläs National Park since 1993.
Markku Rauhala, the founder and owner of Pallas Husky, grew up in Lapland and speaks Finnish, German and English.
Markku has over 20 years of experience in working with Huskies, Mari over 15 years. We have two children, Mikko is 18 and Miia is 16 years old. They also have been taking part in the care of the dogs for a long time.
Our team includes Linda Szabó, who has been with us for 5 years, Thomas Hinze and also a wilderness guide, who works alternately as a second guide for us. Linda Szabó comes from Germany and runs our dog camp. Linda and Thomas also support us as assistant guides on the tours.
We live in Rauhala, on the edge of the national park Pallas-Ylläs and in the middle of the ski centers of West Lapland. Pallas is 20 km north from Rauhala; Levi is 30 km to the west and Ylläs 40 km to the south. Kittilä Airport is 45 km away. Rovaniemi and the Arctic Circle are 200 km to the south.
Our village is located on the shores of lake Jerisjärvi and has about 80 inhabitants.
