We have our own 'Behind the Scenes' at Hetta Huskies blog that was started in December 2016. This is a collection of thoughts and essays by Anna and by key guides who have chosen to spend part of their lives with us. However, we have also had a number of guides and clients share their own blogs with us and some of these provide an excellent insight into life with the huskies in the far north. A selection of the best of these can be found below or on the pages within this section.
Responsible Tourism Visited Lapland in 2017 to participate in one of the meetings of the EU-funded 'Ethics in Animal Tourism' project meetings that we had initiated and this was their report, in blog format.
The best of our guides' blogs:

Three great blogs by clients

Fantasiresor: This is a Norwegian blog from a client, Sofia Zetterqvist, owner of Fantasy Travel who was just with us for a short white (she took part in our 12km Frozen Lakes safari) but who still managed to fall in love with the dogs and learn a little about life behind the scenes…
The Frei Clients: They have now taken part in two multiday safaris with us and have also been back to visit in the summer. They sponsor two of our dogs and have adtoped another so they are starting to feel like part of the family. In this blog she talks about her 7-day Arctic Mushing Adventure with us in 2013.
