The Combadi Insight:

Sitting by the campfire while you gaze out over the frozen river where you may spot moose, deer or even Santa and his reindeer... This may describe your perfect Christmas family holiday, it may just sound unreal. Top it with staying on a treehotel, hours of dog sledding and snow mobile riding. This Christmas has set the bar very high for all future Christmas vacations.
