A friend and I stayed here in March, and we couldn't have asked for a better winter experience in Finland. Everything about this trip was great. The hotel was small (like a big cabin), rustic, miles from town and wonderful. Breakfast was good and the one dinner we had at the hotel was delicious. We booked a dogsled trip with... More

If you love dogs, nature, beautiful surroundings then this is the place for you. I almost don't want to say how wonderful it is because want to keep it to ourselves! It's a family run business that is just perfection. The location is gorgeous, away from it all, but not actually that far from Ivalo or the airport. The rooms... More

We were visiting Finland for only a few days and decided to head up to Lapland. Due to the flight schedules, we had to book an extra night someone and came across Guest House Husky on TripAdvisor. That was one of the best decisions we made on our trip. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff at the... More

My primary reason to stay at Ivalo was the aurora. We could not made it due to the overcasting weather, but no disappointment at all. The cozy atmosphere, good food, lovely dogs and caring host of the guesthouse have granted us a perfect stay at Ivalo. We found that the guesthouse has become the second/good reason for us to stay...

We had a great time there thanks to the kindness of the owners : Outi is in charge of welcoming the guests, arranging activities and anything that can be of help to her guests and her husband takes care of the more than 130 husky dogs (of which a...

The rooms, beds, pillows and shower were great. The sauna was very nice. The breakfast was great. But the dinners were awesome. Every evening a different menu with local ingredients and homemade meals. We did a two day husky safari which was great. Keep in mind that you have to stand about 5 hours per day. A headlight is a...

Me and my partner absolutely loved staying here! The husky tour was incredible and an absolute must - worth every penny. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but the lovely lady who runs the place let us have a sauna while we were waiting for our room to be vacated and cleaned. In the evening we opted for...

Guest House Husky is an absolute gem. Far enough outside of Ivalo that you feel like you are out in the wilds and far enough away from the light pollution that you will definitely see the best of the northern lights if they make an appearance. But close enough to town that you don't feel too isolated. All the staff... More
