Absolutely. Overall rating? 9/10. Less a point for 'missing out of one activity' but managed to schedule it back in. (more)Fred Wong

Husky safari in Finland
Bounding through the snow-covered woods, balancing on the runners of the sledge with the dogs running in front of me. (more)Tim Goodwin
This is not a holiday but a true adventure 300 kilometres of wilderness country. Its a time warp living away from all the rat race of modern society. (more)Alan Warwick
It almost goes without saying that the scenery is breathtaking from the outset but the real memories are the dogs and the bond you form with them. Cruising through the wilderness with your own team is a mixture of calm and excitement that is nicely balanced by caring for your dogs when their work is done. (more)Gareth Jones
From 1495 - 1995 including UK flights

Finland activity holiday and Northern Lights
Memorable parts? The husky safari and the general scenery. Tips? The optional activities day - some of the activities incur a further charge (if you wanted to do snowmobile riding or further husky sledge rides. Some other activities are included in the price of the week (snow shoeing/ cross country skiing etc). This fact was not clear on the itinerary. Also if travelling as a couple, split your clothes/toiletries between you as the small aircraft you take from Helsinki has limited... (more)John Vango

Almost whole tour of ours was exciting as every mile / kilometer of our drive in FINLAND was mesmerizing and exciting. All the activities of sports was new and knowledgable for us. (more)Nehal Lekhadia
we had great time and would definitely go back....seeing the wolverine, bears and willow grouse (more)Mohni Gujral
We saw bears and wolverines but not wolves. Helsinki was good with broad streets and plenty of green spaces. Three stars covers it. Good for seekers of solitude. (more)Richard Tabony
From 730 excluding flights
Self drive family holiday in Finland
Memorable parts? Far too many to mention personally - running the Helsinki Marathon (fantastic scenic route!) at the end of the trip was a personal highlight but aside from this I also enjoyed the beautiful scenery of northern Finland and great accommodation throughout the trip. My 4 year old son enjoyed it all too but his favourites were the Angry Birds Kids Theme Park, Husky Sledding, meeting Santa Claus, feeding reindeers, running the Helsinki Mini Marathon for kids, riding the trams... (more)Richard Mayneord
From 610 - 800 excluding flights
Wild Taiga activity holiday in Finland
Memorable parts? There were so many memorable parts: seeing a bear (and being able to hear it snuffling) only metres from our hide; canoeing down rapids; paddling across peaceful lakes and not seeing another soul all day; the beautiful scenery; picking a glut of wild berries; making coffee over the campfire and discovering yummy Finnish foods. Choosing a holiday operated by local people meant you really got to know Finland. My guide Urpo was always checking that I was okay and showing me... (more)Joanne Offer
From 1480 excluding flights
Finland huski safari & Northern Lights holiday
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the holiday was how beautiful and peaceful Finland was where we were staying and how peaceful and quiet the sled dogs were once they were working. Tips? Tips for other travellers going on this holiday is to make sure you are reasonably fit before going, and you must be a dog lover. Local benefits? We were very back to nature and conserved energy within the cabins we stayed in. We used open fires to cook when we were out treking. Tips? The... (more)Tina Donovan
From 2149 including UK flights
Wilderness activity holiday with huskies in Finland
Memorable parts? Hmm, all of it, we had such a great time I couldn't really pick any one thing over the rest Tips? Local benefits? Yes to all three. Overall rating? One of the best experiences ever, could not recommend this holiday enough (more)Paul Ashby

From 1099 - 1199 including UK flights
Autumn Northern Lights holiday in Finland
It was fantastic, a trip of a life time...being able to watch the Northern Lights and the views across the fjord from our fisherman's hut were the most memorable parts. (more)Josephine Boorman
A brilliant family holiday for us, lots of interesting and exciting things to do and see. (more)Russell Needham
From 795 excluding flights
Northern Lights short break, Finnish Lapland
Best bits: Everything, but if I really had to choose - husky sledding and seeing the Aurora the three nights I was there! (more)J Kwan
Snowshoeing in the dark was the most memorable experience. (more)Nickie Wheeler
From 1190 - 1290 excluding flights
Cycling holiday in Finland, forests and lakes
Memorable parts? The vast feeling of space and peacefulness. Staying in cabins on the shore of the lake and some great cycling. Tips? It was the mosquito season and they were voracious, so bring plenty of repellent! Local benefits? It certainly benefited local people who ran small guest houses where we stayed. Overall rating? Very, very highly. It certainly was one of the best cycling holidays we have ever done. (more)Paul Scott
From 550 excluding flights
Wolverine photography tour in Finland
Memorable parts? Seeing a total of 5 different wolverines up close in a few hours - amazing when there are only about 150 in the whole country. Tips? Take plenty of memory cards because you'll need them if you are as lucky as I was. Local benefits? Yes - the money went towards the cost of providing a feeding station throughout the year. This feeding station not only supported wolverines but also bears, ravens and other wildlife. Overall rating? Fantastic - the wildlife... (more)Christine Cheney
From 1495 excluding flights
Family multi activity holiday in Finland
We all agreed that the husky safari was the best part of the trip. The kids enjoyed cuddling the dogs very much; they were the friendliest bunch of dogs ever seen. (more)Leontine Mastenbroek
The most memorable feature of the holiday - to the average city-dwelling Brit - was the landscape. Forests and frozen lakes, big skies and 18-hours of daylight - our girls were convinced they were in Narnia (the thaw suggesting Aslan would arrive soon). (more)Anon
The best part of the holiday was the husky safari, followed by the snow mobiling. The walk on the first day was good - but we would have liked to have done more/gone a bit further. (more)Liz Gregory
From 1595 - 1745 including UK flights
Lapland holiday, husky safari & log cottage
Memorable parts? It was all brilliant, but I would say the most memorable bit was the husky safari, it was so peaceful once the dogs got started. The rest of the trip was amazing too from the hotel Vuokkati, to cross country skiing, ice skating, visiting the spa at Katinkulta and Angry Birds park and going out on cross country ski trails and tobagonning from the hotel. Brilliant! Tips? Book through Responsible travel, every detail was planned Local benefits? We used the ski... (more)Lara Pletcher
From 1821 excluding flights
Snowshoeing holiday in Finland
Excellent. I was really looking forward to this holiday, but my expectations were even exceeded. (more)Dani Rotzetter
The overall experience was memorable; the scenery, the activity, the guide, the other participants and the 'rough' living. (more)Richard Wisentaner
The entire holiday was memorable & magical. Our guide, Jarno, was superb in every way, including cooking up the best soups over the lunch time fires. He was expert at interpreting animal & bird tracks in the snow & helped us understand the environment & the way of life in that part of Finland, now & in the past. (more)Dilys Harlow
From 850 excluding flights
Eastern Europe tour, the Baltic experience
Memorable parts? Cycling in Tallinn, testing fresh food in central market of Riga, kayaking and pick mushrooms in the Aukstaitija National Park. Dinning in Warsaw and the very lovely sunny tour leader. Tips? Travel light, ready to walk up to twenty minutes and claim stairs with all your luggage. Be well prepared with tourist information in all places, as the tour leader is not a tour guide, only gives out limited local information and may leave you behind if you walk too slow. Local... (more)Xiaoling Wang
From 1534 - 1895 excluding flights
Northern Lights holiday, Finnish Lapland
Really fantastic. Extremely memorable and has really whetted my appetite to explore more of this fascinating region - both at this time of year, and in summertime too. (more)Hannah Smith
In one word: FANTASTIC. We were able to engage in such delightful winter activities which we had never done before. Weather was perfect, everyone at the hotel just as pleasant and accommodating as could be, food VERY good and special meals were prepared for me as I am a vegetarian. I would like nothing better than to go back for another visit. (more)Inge David
The most exciting part was being propulsed to a different world for the space of 3 days!...A great great experience. (more)Daniele Bourdais
From 595 - 710 excluding flights
