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

Hard to say... Was it the 28 huskies? Or the amazing walks? The beautiful nature? Or our brilliant hosts taking such good care of us? It was all amazing!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Pack good shoes and waterproof trousers!

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

We felt our hosts were very conscious about not wasting and recycling practically everything. We foraged for food-mushrooms and berries and our walks/trips allowed us to enjoy the nature around us but was not intrusive or damaging to it.

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

A brilliant adventure with lovely hosts, delicious food, the great Finnish out doors and 28 huskies, who could want more?

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

All of it! But my partner especially loved the daily sauna and lake swimming experience. I personally loved spending time with the huskies and catching my own fish for supper. We were both thrilled with how peaceful and relaxing the week was while getting to experience a true Finnish summer vacation experience. It made a real change to the mad city lives we lead in London.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Bring waterproofs and layers because it can still get chilly in the summer. Lots of comfy socks and a good pair of shoes for walking too. Plenty of time to relax so plenty of reading material would also be worth bringing (although we did also read several of the lovely picture books they had in the cabin).

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

Yes, hopefully our visit will help our hosts to continue taking care of their lovely dogs!

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

10/10. The hosts were very kind and and did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, particularly when I was unwell during the trip. We were very well fed every day and got to enjoy various Finnish dishes that we had never tried before. We absolutely loved spending time with the huskies and getting to know their different personalities. The week flew by and we both wished we could have stayed longer.

Trekking in the forest with the husky dogs. Enjoying nature. I was lucky enough to see an elk, a wolverine and a brown bear, in a elk safari and night at the bear hide.

Prepare for a simple lifestyle, and pack some rain clothing.

Yes I do.
