It is like entering a fairy tale - the place, the design, the people - we will certainly be back - hopefully in wintertime!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

Spent 2 nights at Engholm Husky base and then 2 nights in a wilderness cabin in the mountains. Sven, Crystal and all of the staff were so kind and helpful. The place was immaculate, charming and beautiful. All created by Sven himself. I spent 3 days on a husky safari - covering over 90 km over frozen rivers, lakes, up and down mountains and across deserted plateaus. It was an experience of a lifetime. If you get the chance to come here and experience it yourself - DO! You'll never regret it. The dogs are fantastic (even if you're not a doggy person). I was given this as a Xmas present by my husband and nearer the time of departure had concerns about whether I would fall off sled etc. Alastair at Activities Abroad was fantastic and so reassuring - more like booking a holiday with a friend than a faceless company. My luggage and cold weather gear didn't make the connecting flight from Helsinki up to Ivalo but no matter - Crystal sorted me out with some of her clothes. First time travelling solo and I couldn't have picked a more friendly, helpful and reassuring group of people. I definately want to come back and next time bring husband and daughter - they'd adore it too, I'm sure.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2009

We spent four very memorable days in Karasjok staying with Sven and Crystal at the Husky Lodge. I'll keep it short and sweet; if you get the opportunity to go, DO IT!

We went out with the Huskys on two occasions, once with Sven and once with Crystal, both of whom are excellent guides. Sven is one of the most knowledgeable people you could ever wish to meet when it comes to Huskys and Crystal is simply lovely.

There is so much to recommend about this holiday that I simply don't have time to write it all up. If you have tried skiing and fancy something different, go out with some huskys... it's exhilarating, exciting but best of all it is accessible. Anyone can do it as Sven told us that even an elderly lady had recently been out with them on a husky trip without any problems.
