Perfect trip from start to finish. The staff couldn’t have been any more helpful, engaging or knowledgable. The facilities are second to none, and the rooms are better than the photos. Then comes the tour itself, totally magical, we got involved in everything, feeding, harnessing...More

I’ve been wanting to go dog sledding for about a decade. Even though this adventure was quite expensive, we couldn’t pass it up. Pick up in town was perfect. Getting outfitted properly was a great idea. We thought we were prepared but their boots, gloves...More

Taxi from the airport, at a guess should cost 300 krona that’s £30. It’s easy.

That's a good question.... Weather here is very unpredictable, so no one can tell you when, or in what amount snow will fall. Usually, there is snow in November... But again, no one can tell you for sure😊 Hope this helps!
