My partner and I had a mixed experience during our stay at The Border Inn. The husky sledding was completely exhilarating! Much more difficult than I imagined which made a day of not falling off the sled a real achievement! It is an activity we would both love to do again. Ending the day with sauna was a fabulous immersion... More

This was a holiday that was among one of our best. I would recommend this holiday overall as excellent. Although I was taken out of my comfort zone, I had the most amazing time. From the food to the accommodation, to the dogs and to the hosts Philip and Katja.. Who each made a life time of memories in such... More

I've just come back from a week dog mushing at the Border Inn, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It was exactly the sort of small authentic experience we were hoping for. Being out in the wilderness was an amazing experience, made all the better by the great hosts Philip & Katja (who run the safaris). The dogs were... More

Our trip during February 2012 was a well balanced mix of excitement and relaxation in the wilds of Finland. Our hosts at the Inn made us feel very welcome and although there was only a loose timetable, this actually helped keep the atmosphere relaxed and convivial. Phillip, Katja and Marco could not have done more to answer any questions we... More

What a fantastic trip! if you are looking for something a bit different then look no further. This is a family run business (Scottish guy with his Finnish wife and their two adorable girls), their passion for the dogs is plain to see, this is a real gem of a find. We were collected from the small airport at Kuusamo... More

The Border Inn is the place to go if you want great company, terrific food, fantastic surroundings and the absolute joy of dog-sledding. The place is run by Phillip Ross, helped admirably by his wife and brother, who make sure that you have everything you need for the best adventure ever! At the end of one of Phillip's dog-sledding weeks... More
