Arctic Lapland at Korvala

Arctic reindeer, husky and snowmobile safaris, log cabins complete with skis, snowshoes and ice fishing equipment, and Lapland’s wilderness with its forest paths, lakes and fishing are all available at Korvala, 60 km north of Rovaniemi and the Arctic Circle, Finland.

Korvala’s crown forest estate was established in 1889 alongside the path joining the village of Rovaniemi and the small community of Sodankylä. When the road was completed up to the ice-free Arctic Ocean, inn activity began. Today, work at Korvala’s inn is enjoyed by the fourth generation of the founding family.

Beautiful scenery, nature’s proximity, varied activities and long traditions are essential elements of a holiday at Korvala.

Welcome!

Jaana and Seppo Näsi, and family.










Log Cabins
Log cabins at Korvala offer cosy accommodation and these lakeside cottages, situated at the southern edge of the fell region north of Rovaniemi and the Arctic Circle, are open throughout summer and winter including the Christmas holidays.
Campsite
A small campsite is open in the summer along the lake shore. The campsite has been a popular holiday destination for over 50 years and provides all the typical campsite services.

Siberian Huskies

Usvatanssin Kennel 

We breed pedigree Siberian Huskies under our kennel name Usvatanssin Kennel. The name means "mist dance" and was inspired by two things: firstly, our location - during summer evenings the mist dances on our lake and around the kennels, creating a mystical feel to our white nights, and secondly, our dogs - when they run in the twilight of the cold winter days, the beauty of their synchronized paces is like a dance which flows in the sparkling mist through the powder snow. 

The Siberian Husky breed standard is quite versatile and allows for some diversity in colour, size and shape. The dogs work very successfully in their original role in harness, and are able to carry light loads over long distances at a moderate speed. Our dogs are of the standard working type, not sprint nor show types. 

For the latest updates and puppy info, please go to the kennel's facebook pages. Most of the puppies born in the kennel stay living here all their lives.

We have around 70 siberians in the kennel, some of the older ones are shown below. Scroll over the pictures to find out more about their work and their personalities or click on their names for their pedigrees. Pictures of our younger dogs (the N's, O's, P's, Q's, R's, T's and U's) are missing, we will try to upload them soon!
