“The room was just what we needed: Clean, cumfy beds, enough space, great view into the Finnish forest. Outi and Lea (our two hosts) were so hospitable and always willing to help. The guesthouse is very well equipped with cross-country ski equipment and snow shoes (great for going on our own adventures). We did a fantastic 4 hour husky tour. This was an experience we will never forget. Juha (our guide) made fresh wurst soup at the halfway stop which was delicious and warming, and riding on a wooden sled while being pulled by huskies was an amazing experience. Thank you everyone at Guesthouse Husky for a really fantastic Lapland stay”

Sarah, Portsmouth, England

“The hosts and their staff are upright, kind, honest, helpful, welcoming and very trustworthy people. The rooms are very clean, warm as toast and their huskies are just amazing. The breakfast is something to look forward to, but the best is knowing that we are in good hands of the hosts and their people. The taxi service is extremely reliable with friendly and helpful drivers.”
