An amazing experience. The lodge is adequate for basic needs, the meals have been wonderful. The activities during the day are super experiences for being in the north. Dog mushing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snow machine tours and time and space for relaxation. Sleeping between midnight at 5 am is limited because of the beautiful Aurora to which we were treated. Each night got better and better. Napping is a must after dinner. Not a lot for small children to enjoy but our group felt is was fantastic.
