Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Large, clean rooms and a lovely sauna which can be privately booked. Rental options of cross-country skis, snow shoes and ~150 amazing alaskan huskies to pet at leisure. Great 3-day sled-tour travelling over vaious terrain: Through forests, along frozen rivers and lakes. Opportunities to help feeding the dogs, and a comfortable stay in the wilderness cabin on the lake, with deliscious cooked meals provided througout the tour. Aurora visible on multiple nights during our stay -- UNFORGETTABLE.

My wife and I have dreamt about seeing the Northern Lights for years and have been looking at locations for such a trip. We finally found the time to go this year and decided that Lapland (Finland) was the right place for this. There are obviously loads of options for places to stay at various price ranges, as well as a number of popular locations/towns. We decided to stay in Ivalo which is one of the airport towns in Lapland in order to minimize travel time and cost and due to recommendations from friends who have visited here previously. During our accommodation research, we came across Guesthouse Husky which is located a few kilometers outside Ivalo town. The reviews from other guests were tremendous, the room cost very affordable for Lapland standards, and the fact that they raise and train huskies (which we love) made it an easy choice for us. Guesthouse Husky is a family-run place which you feel immediately upon arriving. Everything is very chilled and down to earth, Outi and all the staff are super friendly and make you feel like family, there's newly baked bread every morning for the sumptuous breakfast, dinners are cooked with love and pride, and rooms are kept clean, cozy and traditional. The free-to-book sauna (rolling in the snow is optional) is fantastic and we used it every day. Basically everything you can ask for. Outi will help you organize tours, taxis, winter clothing, and other things as required during your stay. We did one of the husky rides which are done with their own dogs, and we absolutely loved it. Getting the chance to ride and control your own sledge and dogs was just amazing!!! As a guest, you can also go pet the dogs any time you want which was an added bonus for us. As for the Northern Lights (aurora), well you need some luck to be honest. We went for an organized trip standing on a frozen lake for 4 hours without seeing anything. But the next night we were just sitting at the guesthouse playing cards and monitoring the aurora activity on and app, and simply went out to check every 20 minutes to see if we could spot anything. To our luck, we had an amazing show around 1 am for almost 30 minutes with very strong sightings. Guesthouse Husky is in the middle of a forest with no light pollution, so it is a great place to view it. So for us, Guesthouse Husky is a fantastic place to stay in Lapland and is truly highly recommended for all the right reasons. Thank you again to Outi and the whole team!

5/5 stars. Great location in the middle of the forest, friendly staff, excellent home cooked food (Finnish) and beautiful husky’s. Only stayed for 3 nights, wish we stayed more! Highly reccomended! I would suggest to book the mushing makes me hungry tour or longer, as we did but we wanted to go for more. Next time! :)

I loved my visit at Guesthouse Husky. Outi and all the staff are so kind and warm, and the excursions that I joined were wonderful. I met very interesting travelers as well. I hope very much to return someday soon. If you have the chance to stay, definitely do it!

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

My family of four stayed in the 4-bedded room. It was clean and spacious! What is definitely worth mentioning is the wonderful service provided by Lea and Outi! They patiently attended to all my queries before the trip. That’s not all. When my son accidentally left his newly bought winter jacket at their guesthouse, they actually went the extra mile to hold it for me and took the trouble to ship it back to my residential address across the globe in Singapore!

Spent the first part of our Lapland vacation here. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Communication through emails was great and since we arrived late, they suggested a place to eat in town and had notes waiting for us, leading us to our room and we checked into the Guesthouse in the morning. The room was big and warm. We had to crack windows to let in a little cool air. We really loved the feel of the place. Didn't need to do a northern lights tour, just walked outside the guesthouse and looked up. It is set outside of Ivalo and away from the town's lights. Day out with the huskies was wonderful. Highly recommend!

We have just left after 4 nights. This place is great. A bit out of town so having a car was definitely good, but the guesthouse is in a great location, the dogs are beautiful, accommodation is cozy, clean and the owner Outi was very helpful. We had lovely chats with Lea too, as she was at breakfast most mornings. We loved the kitchen so we could prepare meals occasionally, but we did have meals cooked by Outi twice and would definitely recommend taking this option. We did the 2.5 hour husky ride and had a fantastic time. If we had to make any suggestion, it would be that another communal area would be good, such as maybe a lounge or Kota, so people can sit and enjoy the ambiance. But even without this, this place is amazing Definitely recommend staying here and will stay again if we venture back to Ivalo. Thanks to all at guesthouse!

If you want a taste of wilderness, Guesthouse Husky ticks all the checkboxes and comes with additional comfort. Our cosy log cabin was the perfect place to stay amidst the laplands and we had the perfect room that had a view of the husky puppies' kernels! It was awesome waking up to the sound of huskies howling ;) Staying in the guesthouse also meant we could play with the huskies anytime we wanted - perfect for dog lovers! Do note to stopover at a supermarket to get some groceries as you're your own for lunch but you can pay an additional fee for dinner, which is also highly recommended for an authentic Finnish meal. We had cream Reindeer stew, which I found was the best way to enjoy the meat. The guesthouse also has its own traditional Finnish smoke sauna, to top off the Finnish experience. We were on our honeymoon and the guesthouse also gave us a small bottle of champagne, which was a sweet touch :) We went for a 1 hour husky sledding self-drive tour and it was exhilarating. Riding through the snow-capped wilderness was definitely a sight that will linger in our memories.

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 !
