Husky safari in Finland
The most memorable part of the holiday was not just one thing, but many memories of which - flying down hill trying to control my sledge and not fall off, making snow angels before going back into the sauna, lunch on an open fire on a frozen lake, the views, the noise of the dogs as we got ready in the morning to leave. (more)Kathryn Haw
An unforgettable experience...Riding on husky driven sledges through a winter wonderland was the most memorable part. (more)kate Pottinger

From £1095 - £1245 including UK flights
Northern lights short break, Finland
The most memorable part of the holiday was husky sledging...Daughter said, "best holiday ever". (more)Alison Ferguson
When the skies opened up on our final night, it was like a big bow on top of a really special present. Amazing!...This was an amazing adventure. I would really recommend participating in all the activities as they provided me with an enthusiastic adventure each and every day. (more)Rene Ostapuk
I didn't see the Northern Lights, like for most people was my dream BUT I did have a fab time and will always remember the wonderful views/experiences. Don't expect to see them just think that you will still have that experience to look forward to. (more)Tricia Callaghan
From £1225 including UK flights
Finnish Lapland activity holiday

Lapland family winter adventure holiday
Riding the snow mobiles over the most beautiful landscape in Nellim and experiencing the true culture of Finnish Lapland has to be the best, but there were so many things that we loved...other included tours that we did like the husky safari, cross country skiing, snow shoe walking... (more)Brenda Foster
The husky sledding was the most interactive and therefore enjoyable day...We had a very happy and relaxing time. The local activities (Haariniva) guide Jaako was a particularly motivated, able, caring, patient and sensible guy. The hotel facilities and staff were very good. (more)Alastair Deery
The holiday was, quite simply, fantastic and it is difficult to pick "best bits". For me it was simply being outdoors in a very different environment. (more)Elizabeth Johnston
From £1695 including UK flights
Winter adventure in Finland
Every day was an adventure, so difficult to single one experience out really, but I'll go for the husky sledding. We expected someone else to be driving - controlling the dogs yourself (though I use the word "control" in the loosest sense) was utterly exhilarating. The accommodation and surroundings were fabulous too. (more)Jonathan Green
Excellent experience, good taster of the best that Lapland has to offer. Beautifully snowy countryside and not as cold as I expected. Most memorable was overnight husky safari, getting to bond with your team of dogs. Then running out in our pyjamas to watch the northern lights! (more)Amanda Newnham
The two day husky safari was the most memorable part... A great variety of activities to wet your appetite. (more)Ian Wilkinson
From £1795 including UK flights
Lapland Northern Lights holiday
Memorable parts? I went on this trip hoping to see the Northern Lights. We did not see them on this trip, but I enjoyed the trip so much, I would happily return, lights or no lights. Some memories: watching the beauty of a light snow falling on pine trees from the dining room while enjoying a lunch of homemade soup and bread (I don't see much snow where I live), traveling through the woods on a sledge pulled by snowmobiles while covered with blankets , a very good talk about the Northern... (more)Sally Means
From £1298 including UK flights
Autumn Northern Lights holiday in Finland
It was fantastic, a trip of a life time...being able to watch the Northern Lights and the views across the fjord from our fisherman's hut were the most memorable parts. (more)Josephine Boorman
A brilliant family holiday for us, lots of interesting and exciting things to do and see. (more)Russell Needham
From £795 excluding flights
Cross country skiing in Lapland
The most memorable part of the holiday has to be seeing the Northern Lights from our wilderness cabin. We had the most amazing display at midnight one evening and stood just outside the cabin watching the dancing lights. (more)Hilary Guite
The most memorable part was witnessing one of the best displays of the aurora ever!! Also, being converted from hardcore carnivore to actually liking vegetables!! Maya is a very good cook. (more)Mei Yoke Chan
Excellent. My final words to the owners, Mikael and Maya, were "Don't change anything!"...We travel a lot and have all shapes and sizes of holidays, good and not so good. This one was faultless and good value for money. Also an extraordinary Northern Lights display one night. (more)Jim Kieran
From SKr10400 excluding flights
Lapland winter adventure holiday
It was excellent - far better than I had hoped for. This was a memorable holiday from beginning to end. Lots of winter activities that we took part in, with help and encouragement from an excellent guide. Saw the northern lights on two occasions. (more)Jane Beauchamp
The husky sledging was amazing and we also got to see the northern lights we did something nearly everyday and enjoyed every minute, went to the ice hotel you can't really explain in words how pretty the scenery is you have to go and see it to believe it. (more)Karen Waller
Driving a snowmobile was most memorable - 80 km journey to visit the Lainio Snow Village. Quite an exciting ride!Very good. I need to do another trip to see Northern Lights a bit better though! (more)Lucy Thomson
From £1695 including UK flights
Family winter adventure in Finland
The most memorable parts of the holiday were the people we met and dog sledging. (more)Richard Dickson
8/10. (more)Russell Clark
Overnight husky sledding trip was the highlight. (more)Lynn Houlding
From £1795 including UK flights
Family multi activity week in Finland
We all agreed that the husky safari was the best part of the trip. The kids enjoyed cuddling the dogs very much; they were the friendliest bunch of dogs ever seen. (more)Leontine Mastenbroek
The most memorable feature of the holiday - to the average city-dwelling Brit - was the landscape. Forests and frozen lakes, big skies and 18-hours of daylight - our girls were convinced they were in Narnia (the thaw suggesting Aslan would arrive soon). (more)Anon
The best part of the holiday was the husky safari, followed by the snow mobiling. The walk on the first day was good - but we would have liked to have done more/gone a bit further. (more)Liz Gregory
From £1495 - £1645 including UK flights
Holiday in Swedish Lapland, tailor made
The most memorable part of the holiday was seeing northern lights, the wilderness retreat and a real log fired sauna. Mika and Maja lovely hosts. (more)Jonathan Marsh
Exhilarating...The warm friendly welcome, dog-sledding and the wonderful Wilderness Cabin were the best parts. (more)Liz Evans
Amazing! The best parts were the snow , local people, husky dogs, father Christmas , -38 !!! And the ice hotel (more)Lynne Walker
From SKr11450 excluding flights
Winter holiday in Finnish Lapland
Very good. Jeris resort is quiet away from crowds, good resting place after long active days. Good overall package, good food quality and quantity. Friendly staff. You need to help with feeding dogs and collect firewood, but wilderness cabin is a great experience. Open fires warm it up, is cosy. (more)Peter Varnes
Excellent! We managed to pack in a taster of most activities during our 4 day stay and found time to explore on our own too. Jeris Hotel where we stayed is friendly, comfortable, welcoming and is in the most beautiful setting on the lakeside. (more)Janet Anderson
A good all-round winter activity experience; value-for-money. (more)Carolyn Neville
From £845 - £1050 including UK flights
Lapland adventure holiday, Northern Lights & Icehotel
Every day brought a new and exciting experience but top of the list was the husky safari. It was exhilarating. The dogs are so powerful and go so fast. Driving the sled was just such an amazing experience. (more)Mary Andronowski
The whole trip was a combination of uplifting, exciting, experiences which left us feeling invigorated even after our return home. I particularly enjoyed the dog sledding. (more)Carolyn Dann
The whole trip was memorable. Being out in the wilderness, away from cities in a small town. Nothing about the trip was commercialised and it was a refreshing change from other destinations/trips. (more)Michelle Wynd
From £2399 - £2599 including UK flights
Swedish Lapland winter activity holiday & Northern Lights
I rate this trip extremely highly. Accommodation was great, food was excellent, weather was great, skiing and staying out in the wilderness was fantastic, northern lights spectacular, snow rolling sauna a whole lot of fun. (more)Anwen Victory
The most memorable part was living in the wilderness with no running water or electricity and in the company of a lovely first class guide. (more)Jan McGourty
More than 10 out of 10, amazing, fabulous and i really didn’t want to leave at all...Standing near our cabin in the wilderness in silence so absolute, you could hear a plane so far away you could barely see it and hear the water in the river over 5km away was the mostmemorable part. (more)kathy agashi
From SKr9210 excluding flights
Northern Lights holiday, Finnish Lapland
Really fantastic. Extremely memorable and has really whetted my appetite to explore more of this fascinating region - both at this time of year, and in summertime too. (more)Hannah Smith
In one word: FANTASTIC. We were able to engage in such delightful winter activities which we had never done before. Weather was perfect, everyone at the hotel just as pleasant and accommodating as could be, food VERY good and special meals were prepared for me as I am a vegetarian. I would like nothing better than to go back for another visit. (more)Inge David
The most exciting part was being propulsed to a different world for the space of 3 days!...A great great experience. (more)Daniele Bourdais
From £595 - £710 excluding flights
Treehotel and Northern Lights holiday, Sweden
Memorable parts? The stay at the Tree Hotel was brilliant. The accommodation is great, the food delicious and the people wonderful. The whole experience was great, but probably the dog sledding outing was the stand-out element. Tips? Make sure you have a turn at driving the dog sled! If you're thinking of a visit to the Ice Hotel, go for a day trip, or stay in the warm accommodation. You can see all of the rooms in the actual Ice Hotel, but staying in one of the cold rooms involves... (more)Carole Thomas

“So what's your stance on the environmental impact of tourists driving snowmobiles Timmo?” The question was asked by a British journalist at midnight whilst sitting in a traditional Lappish kota or teepee on top of Olos Fell in North West Finnish Lapland. I've always felt quite privileged to have been there to hear the answer because it highlighted just how important tourism has become in remote corners of the globe. The question itself was probably slightly leading as Timmo was our 55 year old guide on a two hour night time snowmobile safari. His response was impassioned to say the least and provides a lesson for us all I think. I don't recall his exact words but I'll do my best to paraphrase. “Without the snowmobile we wouldn't have a tourism industry. Huskies need feeding and attention for 12 months of the year. Reindeer need feeding and attention for 12 months of the year. Snowmobiles need feeding and attention for 5 months of the year. There is no money in huskies and reindeer, the only money is from snowmobiles.” Read more about Lapland in this Lapland article.
