Yes, the hotel employs almost exclusively local people and boosts the local economy.

A great place for a short stay. A little more choice of food would be good in the hotel but generally all round very good. Excellent staff!

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

Staying in a beautiful and peaceful location and definitely the husky sled ride was such a fantastic experience.

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

Take fingerless gloves and a good supply of single use hand and foot warmers. Not many souvenirs to buy in the resort but suggest you do your souvenir buying at Kittila airport rather than Helsinki airport.

Yes, it gives employment to locals.

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

Superb, best experience ever! Excellent food, warm and comfortable accommodation and plenty to do. Beautiful area and will be going again.

review 26 Dec 2016

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

Loved it all. Easy to get to but still feels remote. X country skiing, huskie dog and of course seeing the northern lights. losge staff are great and the leaders excellent. Good level of risk management and felt safe trying new activities.

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

We stayed in the lodge which was convenient as you don't need to ' dress' to go to breakfast etc. Avoid room 101, it is next to the boot room and can be noisy before and after activities, although it only happens a few times a day. Also ask for a room facing the woods, much nicer outlook. Give everything a go. I had only ever skied 1 time 20 years ago, loved it. Be prepare not to see the northern Lights and feel lucky when you do.

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

Tourism is important to this region. Can't comment further

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

Excellent. It is a long way from Australia and expensive, but worth it all for such a wonderful experience.

review 20 Mar 2016

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

Everything. All activities of the trip were such memorable and exciting.

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

Just enjoy all the activities even if you don't feel like it. You won't regret it.

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

Absolutely.

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

9/10. Less a point for 'missing out of one activity' but managed to schedule it back in.
