1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The husky sledding. That's what the week was all about

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The lodge provides top quality outerwear - balaclava, mittens, socks, boots and a great pair of warm, well cared for overalls. Added to the inner wear I had taken along I found the temperatures that I experienced (generally -2° to +2°) very manageable. The outerwear is handed out on Day 1 and remains on loan to the guest until departure. The food is good and plentiful and the attention given to guests' needs is outstanding.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I guess it did but not in an "in your face" type of way

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Great. The only improvement I have suggested is to include a reindeer sledding experience on the "free" day (or one of the evenings)

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Being out in the frozen wilderness with the dogs was an incredible experience! But coming back in from the cold to the warmth and comfort of Saija Lodge (plus the sauna!) was a treat.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You will need to have a certain level of fitness to be out all day with the dogs, some of the driving is tricky and pretty tiring. There are plenty of other activities to enjoy at Saija Lodge if the dogs aren’t your thing.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes absolutely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Wonderful! I loved every moment :-)
