Pirate Husky

Activities & Dog Sledding Finnmark


Welcome to Pirate Husky, a dog sledding farm in Porsanger, Finnmark of Northern Norway. With our 30 dogs, you can experience the wild and untouched nature while steering your own dog team on a trip you will never forget.

Our kennel is the home of a pack of Siberian Huskies. The Siberian is the oldest of the polar dog breeds, and even though the names suggest they come from Sibir, the northern parts of Russia, they originally where from Alaska. In the first dog races, Siberian Huskies was the fastest of the polar dogs, and they got popular fast. In addition to being good sledding dogs, they turned out to be perfect family dogs as well, and the popularity has grown ever since. Today there are also a lot of people racing with Siberian Huskies, included us, but most people now use the mix Alaska Husky, that is a bit faster.

The name “Pirate Husky”, comes from our lead dog, Lulu, that has only one eye. The other one, she lost to surgery in February 2018, but she sure is happy with the decision, as the eye was bothering her. She works perfectly with only one eye and is the star of the pack.

He can run anywhere on the dog team, and with his size and strength you will notice him on the team. He also loves people, kids, and cuddles.


Not at all a husky. Gulliver loves to come along, but would prefere not having to do the work. If he could, he would sit on the sled with us instead. A loving, friendly family dog, that Ruth is training for obedience and freestyle.

He is now Ruth's dog, they became best friends when they first met, Ruth was 5 years old and moved in to his dog house.

Splitt 03.12.2014

Splitt is Snjor's brother, and even better command leader, he can also go single lead. A bit more shy than his brother, and sometimes thinks it's too many people visiting. Luckly it passes quilcly when we find the harness, he always want's to go for a run. He is a charming boy.
