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

Aki and Suvi were very welcoming and couldn't make us feel more at home! The dogs are all amazing, so friendly and the personalities all so unique and lovely! Everything from the location, to the walks and food was perfect and we would really love to go every year. We found it very relaxing and a home from home for the whole time.

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

Switch off your phones and enjoy the freedom and relaxation of being there!

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

Yes, the money is going direct to the hosts who use local foods, services and ingredients - even picking berries and mushrooms direct from around the area and then providing that as part of the meals.

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

Amazing experience, we fell in love with the place, dogs and just how well we were welcomed into the home.

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

Meeting the huskies for the first time, canoeing on the private lake in warm sunshine, trekking in ancient forests with the dogs.

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

Would recommend staying with Suvi and Aki at the husky farm to get a proper Finnish experience. We learnt so much from them as well as having access to the traditional Finnish sauna and helping to care for the animals.

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

Definitely supported local people and supported conservation.

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

Absolutely brilliant! Holiday of a lifetime, amazing people, amazing scenery and amazing food!

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

All of it, the whole being away from it all in a beautiful location.

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

Be prepared for quite a bit of down time, so books and games, enjoy chilling.

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

In an area with high unemployment it brought in money which has to be a bonus but didn't really see much of civilisation.

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

Great, a real escape from it all and a back to basics experience with great hosts and a fantastic way to get to experience the real Finland.

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

The scenery was fantastic - pristine pine forests dotted with lakes but the most enjoyable part was getting to know our guide, Aki, and of course the dogs! We each had a dog on a harness that pulled us along - power assisted hiking! Our launch spot was lovely, as were the pancakes we cooked and ate with wild berries (blueberries) from the forest. We loved our day out with the dogs almost as much as they did!

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

It's really very easy to hike with huskies, you just need some half decent walking shoes. Next time we'll return in the winter and go out husky sledding. They have a 21km trail that we'd like to do..

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

Yes, tourism is increasingly important to help protect livelihoods and keep the younger people, like Aki, in work. We left no trace of our visit, the area is pristine and we'd played our part to ensure it stays that way.

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

We'd never heard of husky trekking before, but now we are raving about it - so much easier and more fun than normal trekking!
