One of the best Holidays I have been on

By Helen

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The Alaskan Huskies!!!! The dogs are just incredible...athletic, fascinating to watch, and beautiful. Our guide Laird was fantastic as were all the other people. This was a 'working' adventure and we did work. We started each day with breakfast, packed a sandwich and thermos, went down to the dog area, scooped poop, readied the dogs/sleds and off we went! Every day was a new adventure. Back for late afternoon snack, clean up then dinner. The meals were made from scratch - everyone pitched in cooking and with the clean-up.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this holiday?
Travel light and do the layers. I purchased 'Hot Chillys' #10 thermals top and bottoms and they worked well. A pair of light weight ski pants, fleece top (thin worked for me), wool sweater, scarf, thin fleece gloves and hat. I rented their jacket/coat, sleep bag and mitts. I was there in February so needed a pair of boots for going potty outside. Wear house light weight shoes for inside. Knowing how to ski/cross country would be an advantage as trails up and down and switch back. There is no power (they use propane) so no cell phones or TV.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
The benefit is for the dogs. They are treated with respect and are loyal and very friendly and they do get excited:) I have fond memories of all the dogs from my team. They recycles everything. The dog poop is scooped and sent to a company for recycle. Local people do work here.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
I had a fabulous time. Pushed my limits. I am a back packer so I knew what the lodge was like and what my output would be.... We all worked hard but worked together. Met some very cool people. Whitehorse (was only there on arrival and departure day, is a great town. Small but perfect. The whole area in Winter is very 'white', pristine and kickback. I say, go and play and learn something new. Most people I know are just amazed that I booked this trip on the spur of the moment and went alone. I am glad I did...this has been one of the best Holidays I have been on...
