The hotel was everything we expected for this type of holiday it was clean, warm and very friendly. The food was typical 3 star ski resort food which was fresh and plentiful.
All of the activities were as advertised and when they said all day we were out for at least 8 hours and we're very well looked after. We had several guides throughout the week all were very professional, knowledgable and nothing was too much. Excellent all-round.
Apart from a few aching muscles which was to be expected we had a fantastic holiday. Even though we were very active it was a truly amazing experience and would recommend this holiday to anyone.
The main aspect was dog sledding over a frozen lake to the overnight cabin and seeing the sky turn blood red above the tree tops with the sun set, then later watching the moon rise in the middle of nowhere. Closely followed by the Northern Lights.

I most enjoyed all of the included activities! This is a great trip with lots of extras available to tailor it even further. I didn't understand that we wouldn't be in a 'KE group' but it was actually a nice way of getting to know new people once I understood how it worked. Everything was incredibly well organised and the guides and staff were excellent.

I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, the hotel and all the activities, but particularly enjoyed the Finn Jann Husky Farm safaris. It exceeded my expectations. There were mainly families and couples at the Iso Syote Hotel, the Hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

The holiday was wonderful. The huskie drives and over night stay in the wilderness cabin made it. The guide on our huskie tour was so good and took care of us so that we could enjoy the experince of the whole thing. I most enjoyed the huskies, the wilderness cabin and of coures the northen lights, which blessed us on that night. KE have got it right! Thank you KE for putting together such good holidays, we are glad we found your company.

Huskey farm and over night stay in cabin were the highlight. Our guide made it so enjoyable and could not have been more helpfull and attentive. The morning cross-country skiing was only a 50 minute lesson.

Husky sledging was the highlight for me. You need a higher level of fitness than 'easy' for maximum benefit. Snowmobiling was much harder than I expected - too fast!

A terrific range of activities all ruthlessly well run. The huskie overnight trip was sensational, and very very moving to work at such intensity with those dogs. The cross country ski session was a bit half-hearted.

The trip was even better than we thought. It was best holiday ever! The guys at KE were fantastic at helping me organise everything. Our guides for the holiday were brilliant. they were encouraging and really supportive and made us laugh! We were really well taken care of!
