“Memorable Stay..Love this Guesthouse
When you go to Ivalo, don’t stay in a conventional hotel. You should stay at Guesthouse Husky. It is like a log cabin in the wilderness. It is a cosy 3 story lodge with very comfortable rooms, cosy with great wifi. We arranged with the Guesthouse for a taxi pick up at the airport and asked the driver to drop us at a supermarket first before going to the guesthouse. Just pay a little more. If you don’t drive, it is expensive to get transport to go to the supermarket.
They provided breakfast and dinner was additional and optional. We chose to have dinner there in the guesthouse every night and we are glad we did. We loved it. It is a must try – Finnish/Lapland food freshly cooked. Delicious ! The dinners were one of our son’s look forward moments here.
Lunch is on your own but they have provided a kitchenette with a fridge, stove, microwave oven, dish washer, plates, pots etc. You can bring you own food to cook here.
Whatsmore this is a husky farm so you can book your Husky safari with them and also see and play with the dogs any time during your stay here. Their Huski safari was excellent, we took the 4 hr one with lunch provided..cooked over an open stove in a teepee. A wonderful experience.
We also did the northern lights hunting and snow mobiling and the companies we booked with picked us from the guesthouse.
A very memorable and wonderful stay here made special by the owner and staff at Husky Guesrhouse, thank you!”

We did the 2.5 hour husky ride and it was amazing. The dog sledding was incredible, and you get to ride through the most beautiful tracks. We got to see lots of beautiful scenery, play and pat puppies and the wonderful sled dogs (so friendly!), and go really fast on the sleds (but always felt safe), and overall had the best day.
I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to our guides! They were absolutely amazing. They were so lovely and chatted to us about Lapland, the dogs, etc. They never rushed us and seemed to genuinely enjoy taking us on the tour and chatting about the dogs and their lives in Lapland. Also, they let us play with the dogs as much as we wanted, and never rushed us out, which we really appreciated.
Overall, the tour was also great value, and lasted way longer than the 2.5 hours (I think we were there for at least 4 hours)
I can’t recommend this highly enough! Please do yourself a favour and book in.”

“Authentic Finnish hospitality
About 15 mins taxi from Ivalo airport for 40 Euros. stayed for 3 nights. Rooms were cosy and warm. Food was excellent with a variety of Finnish meals and good value. Unless you have a car I recommend eating in. Small kitchen for diy food, tea coffee etc. Lookout for the bear! The Huskys were the stars. You must do a trip. 4 hours was great fun. 2 to a sledge and 6 huskys. The guide was very knowledgeable and had a fab lunch. All in all a great stay to see the real Finland and saw Northern lights on the last night. Take a good camera to see all the colours.”
