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

The two day wilderness cabin trip was fantastic.

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

You don't need to take anything with you. I over packed just in case I needed things. But do make sure you take a good head torch and camera. This is a challanging holiday so be sure you are fit enough. If you want to do any activities make sure you book it before you get there.

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

Yes it did. It keeps people working all year and they do a great job.

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

Having done many huskey trips before I can say that it was the best dog sled holiday I've ever had. I was not expecting to have the free day at the beggining of the trip.

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

I have wanted to go Dog Sledging since a child and wasn't disappointed. What a magical location just like a fairytale. You went out everyday excepting to see Santa, just like a Christmas card

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

Great for dog lover or something really different

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

Yes I am sure it benefited the local people as far as jobs and the local food we ate but this was Finland not Africa. Not sure about environmental impact and conservation except we did have a night in a wilderness cabin with no running water or electricity

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

Wonderful and magical Great location, people, food, accommodation, activities and the dogs It is a holiday we will never forget and hope to return one day It is not suitable to everyone, you have to like and be use to strong barking and very excitable huskies and all the doggy things they do, it is a real hands on holiday and you need to work as a team. You also need a reasonable level of fitness you could be standing still for at least 4 hours a day in very cold conditions. Putting your team together is hard work the dogs pull alot and there is alot of bending .Also you need to use you hands for clipping on the dogs so it requires good strength in your hands which are also exposed for this task so no good if you suffer from arthritis
