    Tailor made husky safari in Wild Taiga, Finland
    From
    €1,120
    excluding flights
    The most memorable moment was the warmth and hospitality of our hosts (and their great home cooked Finnish cuisine), to interacting with the dogs and harnessing them, to the experience of a wood fired sauna beside a frozen lake each evening, this short holiday could not have been better.

    Wolf tracking in Sweden
    From
    €1,567
    excluding flights
    The most memorable moment was hearing a wolf howl while we were gathered round a campfire on the last evening; but the sunrise and sunsets each day were incredible each day. The guides were great: friendly, practical and very knowledgeable, but we also got to meet a wolf expert a forest environmentalist to offer us the wider view. (more)Imogen Bill
    If the aim of the company is to ensure guests 'collect memories not things' then they certainly delivered. (more)Rachel North
    Treehotel and Northern Lights holiday, Sweden
    From
    £965
    excluding flights
    The husky dog sledging day - it was wonderful - you get your own set of huskies & sledge with a fur rug. Remember your ski goggles thou' - we had a lot of snow & you can go quite fast (particularly if light) - afterwards hot chocolate & homemade cake in a tippee with roaring fire! Fab. (more)Cindy Chattaway
    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. (more)Carole Thomas

    Very good....Swishing through the forest in a blizzard with head torches in the dark on the back of a speeding dog sled. (more)Anne Blagden
    Every day was memorable but husky dog sledding was most exciting. (more)Sue McGahan
    My holiday was perfect, I really enjoyed it...The most memorable thing of the holiday was the location. The lodge was a perfect place to stay indoors, and also the perfect place to enjoy the nature. (more)Marta Bindi
    Sami people winter holiday in Norway with ice hotel
    From
    £1,749
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? As we came out of the woodland and onto the frozen lake, the thrill of running a team of 8 huskies gave way to awe at the sheer magical beauty of the landscape. The trees were heavy with snow, everything was white, touched by the light of the low sun. I have never felt so alive. Tips? Don't skimp on the layers! Although the Sami guides don't expect tips, we took some of our own produce (honey) to give as a thank you gift. This went down extremely well! Norway is... (more)Matt McCabe

    It's hard to say as every aspect of the holiday was fantastic. If I have to say one thing it would be the activities, exciting, brilliantly organised and great fun! Best holiday ever! (more)Katie Bater
    Best bits: Everything, but if I really had to choose - husky sledding and seeing the Aurora the three nights I was there! (more)J Kwan
    Snowshoeing in the dark was the most memorable experience. (more)Nickie Wheeler

    From
    £1,675
    including UK flights
    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

    £595

    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
