A bit disappointing really

Of course we loved, loved, loved seeing the aurora and the dog sledding was incredible. (more)Adele Weiss

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. (more)Matthew Peek
Excellent experience - would have liked to have stayed longer and would go again! (more)Philippa Cawthorne
Spectacular (more)Lloyd Bond
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
Northern Lights luxury short break, Norway
From
£1,299

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
Northern Lights short break, Finnish Lapland
From
€1,032
excluding flights
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
Northern Lights short break, Lofoten Islands, Norway
From
£925
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the Northern Lights Tips? If you are a couple ask for Cabin 22 or 23. Local benefits? Benefited local people as it helps their economy. But the RIB safari is providing food for the Sea Eagles which discourages their natural hunting instincts. Overall rating? Excellent. Exceeded expectations, which were high. (more)Amanda Hill
Family multi activity holiday in Finland
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

The most exciting part of the trip was snowmobiling! What a fantastic day. The tour was informal, fun and adventurous. What more can you ask for. The setting couldn't have been better. (more)Sarah Chandler
The location is wonderful and the kids loved the snow (more)Paul Freeman
Excellent....We loved all of it - the food, accommodation, tour guides and the northern lights were spectacular. The trip was very well organised and everything came together nicely. We travel a lot and this trip did not disappoint. (more)Penny Salmon

From
£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
