WOW - trip of a lifetime. One of the top things to do before you die (or reach 50!). Scenery spectacular, accommodation clean, comfortable and very warm (had our own personal sauna), food was all home cooked and delicious, as a fussy eater I was worried before the break but was very impressed (put on a stone!!). The activites were amazing, well organised and supported by knowledgeable and friendly staff. If you go to the Reindeer Farm please take the reindeer man something relating to Man Utd - you'll have a friend for life! Saija means quiet place, had a blast!!

This is a pure activities holiday, don't expect disco's, bars and nightlife. The out of this world experience makes up for it! After a days dog sledding, all you want to do is sleep!!

This dog sled week with the well cared for huskies at Saija was exactly as described by Activity Holidays Abroad. The company were helpful and advised us well as we had not done a winter holiday before. The accommodation is cosy and in very nice log houses. The wilderness cabin was luxurious compared with what I was expecting and our guide, Jari, cooked us a lovely dinner of fried salmon while we languished in the sauna. The food was really good home cooking with lots of salad and fresh friut. The Fins have a healthy diet. The guides were fantastic and spoke very good English. It was the best holiday ever for dog lovers. I recommend Activity Holidays Abroad and Saija in particular and can't wait for our next husky trip!.
