“You must visit!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We spent time here in February and I can not praise this place enough. It's set in beautiful scenery; has amazing facilities; the rooms are comfy and have everything you need; the bathroom (especially the shower) was fantastic; the breakfast and evening meals were brilliant; and the organised trips were great fun. Outi and her family made us all really welcome and the other staff we came across were great too. Just to top it off, we saw Aurora on two nights from just outside our accomodation!
This accomodation would be highly recommended for all types of traveller. A definite place to visit.
Thank you to everyone there for such a memorable experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, with comfy beds and great facilities. Each level has access to a balcony or ver...

We spent 5 nights at Guesthouse Husky and can only recommend the place to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing place and great care! Our stay was just perfect... except for the northern lights which were not to appear while we were there, but hey, no one can schedule them :-) Outi is just as everyone describes her... Nice, tending to your every needs... and a great cook! We enjoyed dinner a lot (a traditional Finnish dish every night). The accomodation is perfect: ultra clean, wooden floors and walls, amazingly comfy beds, nice bathroom and shower... and let's not forget the sauna (if you're brave enough you could even go straight from the sauna to the snow through the rear door... as for us... well not brave enough for that lol). One more thing, Outi is even more efficient than a travel agency, she will arrange everything for you from your transfer from/to the airport to any safary you'd like (snowmobile, reindeers... huskies of course). She even wrote down the name of the bus stop for us so that we may show it to the bus driver :-) As a summary, you're looking for a charming authentic place in Lapland: GO!

Have not stayed at guesthouse, although it looks very cosy. Husky experience was wonderful, great fun. Staff look after you and even cook a big bowl of soup to keep you warm after a drive through forest and on frozen rivers.

A beautiful wood built guest house. Outi was so lovely, and had been so helpful prior to booking and during our stay. She organised the husky trip and snow mobiling trip and took no money before we arrived.
The rooms were clean, fresh and warm! The beds were amazing... sooo comfortable and the shower lovely too.
We did not eat there, but chose to go into Ivalo but other guests commented on how good the food was.
The location was wonderful, and just a short trip into the forest with the huskies... dream come true.
I would suggest that you hire a car, the roads are good to drive on as the cars are set up for such weather with winter tyres etc and driving wasnt difficult at all.
Thanks to Outi and her family, staff and volunteer you made my dreams come true. Such a smooth trip from initial booking to arriving back to a dull boring UK!

For a stay of 5 days in north of Finland, we stayed 3 nights at this place. Yes, Outi is as nice as the others described her. Yes, the room and facilities are even better than some fancy hotels. Yes, the food was great and we enjoyed Outi's mother receipts as well. Yes the husky tour with her husband was great and we very much enjoyed it. Yes, the sauna is a pleasure at the end of a full day. And finally, Yes we will certainly advice friends to go there. No we did not see the Northern lights from her place, but friends that stayed one day more did enjoy this in this special place, without much light pollution from the city.

Starting from booking, Outi, the owner on and off gave us advice for our trip schedule like what should we do around Saariselkä and how to get there...etc. Think not more guesthouse has this nice "service"!
The facilities as mentioned in other reviews which is unexpected, especailly the bathroom, better than Hotel
People/food/activities are great: all the people in the guesthouse are friendly, the home made food is great, one of my friend did not eat beef, Lea did a tailor made dinner for her). Huskies are so cute and energetic. Very nice husky tour: play with the huskies and had a nice view. Recommend stay for 2 nites at least.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it's an unforgettable place to stay. A pleasant family with 3 loverly boys. Outi and Lea were nice and well prepared all things and delicious meals to us. We had the husky safari and met the puppies. Highly recmmended to others if they have chance to Ivalo. Sure we will back one day again.
