Park is full of breathtaking views from bottom to peak, relaxing resting places and fantastic hiking trails.

We had the most amazing guide who showed us the whole park and told us so much about each and every husky, and in perfect English too!
Even just walking around the park was fun and very informative- we learned so much about huskies and dogsledding.
