I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
The most memorable moment was traveling through the snowy wilderness with only the sound of the dogs paws and the sledge. Standing on a frozen lake (-20 degrees C) watching the northern lights and learning to understand and care for my husky team. (more)Ruth Stevens
This was the second time we have done this tour, the other was 10 years ago. It was still one of the best vacations ever and we have travelled a lot. (more)Steven Hirst
Bounding through the snow-covered woods, balancing on the runners of the sledge with the dogs running in front of me. (more)Tim Goodwin
Working with the dogs was my favourite part of the trip. I loved meeting all the
different dogs and getting to know their different personalities. They are such
great workers and I miss them now I am back home. (more)Ali Barned
The dogs are just incredible... athletic, fascinating to watch, and beautiful. Our guide Laird was fantastic as were all the other people at the ranch... I had a fabulous time. Pushed my limits... this has been 'one' of the best vacations I have been on. (more)Helen Weir
Fantastic. I have always wanted to try sledding and finally did. Now I just need to convince my other half to go again next winter!
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 vacation could not have been better.
Excellent experience - would have liked to have stayed longer and would go again! (more)Philippa Cawthorne

Well planned, tailored made and little details were well looked into....The husky ride in Inari is simply fantastic! (more)Jerry Teo
It was all brilliant, but I would say the most memorable bit was the husky safari, it was so peaceful once the dogs got started. The rest of the trip was amazing too from the hotel Vuokkati, to cross country skiing, ice skating, visiting the spa at Katinkulta and Angry Birds park and going out on cross country ski trails and tobagonning from the hotel. Brilliant! (more)Lara Pletcher
It's hard to say as every aspect of the vacation was fantastic. If I have to say one thing it would be the activities, exciting, brilliantly organised and great fun! Best vacation ever! (more)Katie Bater
