Northern Lights tailor made holiday in Finland
Fabulous trip. Enjoyed the whole thing. Good home cooked food, comfortable accommodation, friendly & knowledgeable guide and good company during the evenings. We had several sightings of the aurora, which was an added bonus. (more)Sue Hodges
Overall the best experience ever and would look at having more winter holidays now than summer :-) (more)Elizabeth Watson
It was a fantastic experience and one of the best holidays we have ever had. We thought it would be a once in a lifetime holiday, but are already talking of going back to do the 2 day husky trail (more)Rowena Schofield
From 734 - 820 including UK flights
Winter cottage holiday in Finnish Lapland
Being in an environment which was so different to our everyday environment was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Kate O Reilly
Most memorable? Being out in beautiful natural surroundings, untouched, serene. It felt exciting to be so far up north...Excellent. (more)Antonia Cornaro
It was great to see wild reindeer wandering so close by in their own habitat and to see the respect of the local guides for the countryside, wildlife and local people. (more)Karen Horridge
From 1628 - 1745 including UK flights
Lapland husky safari and activity holiday, Finland
Having done many huskey trips before I can say that it was the best dog sled holiday I've ever had. (more)Mark Waddock
Wonderful and magical. Great location, people, food, accommodation, activities and the dogs. It is a holiday we will never forget and hope to return one day. (more)Jane Collingwood-Bates
From 1874 - 2208 including UK flights
Husky safari in Finland
The most memorable part of the holiday was not just one thing, but many memories of which - flying down hill trying to control my sledge and not fall off, making snow angels before going back into the sauna, lunch on an open fire on a frozen lake, the views, the noise of the dogs as we got ready in the morning to leave. (more)Kathryn Haw
An unforgettable experience...Riding on husky driven sledges through a winter wonderland was the most memorable part. (more)kate Pottinger
Great...Going through the woods with the sled was the most exciting part. (more)Soli Hillel
From 1740 - 1877 including UK flights
Northern lights short break, Finland
It was in my top three holidays and I have travelled a lot. An absolute must! (more)Thomas White
The most memorable part of the holiday was husky sledging...Daughter said, "best holiday ever". (more)Alison Ferguson
When the skies opened up on our final night, it was like a big bow on top of a really special present. Amazing!...This was an amazing adventure. I would really recommend participating in all the activities as they provided me with an enthusiastic adventure each and every day. (more)Rene Ostapuk
From 1138 - 1248 including UK flights
Finnish Lapland activity holiday
I enjoyed all of it...Very good. (more)Vicki May
The most memorable thing was the place itself - the quietness. Luosto is so very quiet. (more)Anne Sciortino
Very good...The best parts were the beautiful pristine snow & the northern lights. (more)Elizabeth Bailey
From 1618 including UK flights
Tailor made husky safari in Wild Taiga, Finland
The most memorable part was meeting the dogs, steering the sled and the complete change of scenery and fresh air. The chance to sample local food (moose, reindeer, berries) which was mostly excellent. (more)Katherine Stuart
Husky sledding across a frozen lake just before sunset was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)James Hamand
From 1020 excluding flights
Winter adventure in Finland
Every day was an adventure, so difficult to single one experience out really, but I'll go for the husky sledding. We expected someone else to be driving - controlling the dogs yourself (though I use the word "control" in the loosest sense) was utterly exhilarating. The accommodation and surroundings were fabulous too. (more)Jonathan Green
Excellent experience, good taster of the best that Lapland has to offer. Beautifully snowy countryside and not as cold as I expected. Most memorable was overnight husky safari, getting to bond with your team of dogs. Then running out in our pyjamas to watch the northern lights! (more)Amanda Newnham
The two day husky safari was the most memorable part... A great variety of activities to wet your appetite. (more)Ian Wilkinson
From 1645 - 1772 including UK flights
Lapland family winter adventure holiday
Riding the snow mobiles over the most beautiful landscape in Nellim and experiencing the true culture of Finnish Lapland has to be the best, but there were so many things that we loved...other included tours that we did like the husky safari, cross country skiing, snow shoe walking... (more)Brenda Foster
The husky sledding was the most interactive and therefore enjoyable day...We had a very happy and relaxing time. The local activities (Haariniva) guide Jaako was a particularly motivated, able, caring, patient and sensible guy. The hotel facilities and staff were very good. (more)Alastair Deery
The holiday was, quite simply, fantastic and it is difficult to pick "best bits". For me it was simply being outdoors in a very different environment. (more)Elizabeth Johnston
From 1495 - 1645 including UK flights
Lapland Northern Lights holiday
Memorable parts? I went on this trip hoping to see the Northern Lights. We did not see them on this trip, but I enjoyed the trip so much, I would happily return, lights or no lights. Some memories: watching the beauty of a light snow falling on pine trees from the dining room while enjoying a lunch of homemade soup and bread (I don't see much snow where I live), traveling through the woods on a sledge pulled by snowmobiles while covered with blankets , a very good talk about the Northern... (more)Sally Means
From 1298 including UK flights
Hiking with huskies holiday in Finland
Memorable parts? The scenery was fantastic - pristine pine forests dotted with lakes but the most enjoyable part was getting to know our guide, Aki, and of course the dogs! We each had a dog on a harness that pulled us along - power assisted hiking! Our launch spot was lovely, as were the pancakes we cooked and ate with wild berries (blueberries) from the forest. We loved our day out with the dogs almost as much as they did! Tips? It's really very easy to hike with huskies, you... (more)Justin Francis
From 998 - 1138 excluding flights
Finland winter activity holiday & Northern Lights
Memorable parts? The scenery was just fantastic, and I really enjoyed being with the huskies. The whole experience was like nothing I've ever done before. Tips? Be reasonably fit and you will enjoy the trip more, and don't go directly from a warm climate without acclimatising somewhere for the cold beforehand. Local benefits? The holiday provided jobs for the locals, and the opportunity for other foreign staff to work in and experience/understand the Arctic region. Overall... (more)Jonathan Gilbert
From 1349 - 1799 including UK flights
Ski touring holiday in Finland, Russian border
The most memorable part of the holiday was the professional organisation & friendly & welcoming people at the places we stayed at. (more)Alan Reimer
The most memorable part was each day -- Skiing (47 KM on the longest day) under sunny, blue skies with beautiful scenery, fun people and a supportive, helpful guide, eating lunch by the fire, seeing the Russian border and animal tracks, then having a well deserved sauna and delicious meal. (more)Elizabeth Babos
As if in a 3-D Christmas postcard that goes on for miles and miles and miles. (more)Edith van Genuchten
From 920 excluding flights
Wild Taiga self drive holiday in Finland
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 720 excluding flights
Wild Taiga winter activity holiday, Finland
Once in a lifetime experience...Experiencing something new every day, from trying new foods to trying new activities. (more)Mandy Read
Excellent. A holiday that is a cut above. The tranquil snow dusted beauty of the lakescape and surrounding forests. It is so rare these days to go to somewhere so untouched where the silence is palpable. (more)Jane Edmondson
So many wonderful things, I'd struggle to specify just one - eating delicious Finnish tapas whilst the snow fell in Helsinki, being treated to an impromptu Christmas singsong by a choir whilst on the ferry across to Suomenlinna, being in charge of our own Husky drawn sledge (and then meeting Husky puppies!), barbequeing sausages on an open fire whilst sitting on reindeer hides in minus 25 degree temperatures, the exceptionally friendly people, the majesty of the snow covered forests, the tranquility... (more)Carolyne Coupel
From 809 - 1033 excluding flights
Snowshoeing holiday in Finland
The most memorable part of the holiday was swimming in the icy lake after a nice hot sauna! (more)Kim Oosterveen
Great weather even if cold. Great wilderness feel to the environment. Good sized group...Local use of hotel, cabins and information centre for food. (more)Paddy Ducey
From 840 excluding flights
Watch brown bears in Finland
Excellent...being in a bear hide and seeing the Brown Bears was the most memorable part. (more)Anne Higgins
A very enjoyable holiday...the most exciting moment was when a brown bear came into view after a wait of 9.5 hours in the hide (more)Rosemary Dunk
The most memorable parts of the holiday was spending the night in the hide. Great views of several bird species and then a sighting of a single female brown bear. The hide was well constructed, comfortable and better than others I have spent time in. (more)Paul Butler
From 849 including UK 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 2299 - 2349 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
Lapland winter adventure holiday
It was excellent - far better than I had hoped for. This was a memorable holiday from beginning to end. Lots of winter activities that we took part in, with help and encouragement from an excellent guide. Saw the northern lights on two occasions. (more)Jane Beauchamp
The husky sledging was amazing and we also got to see the northern lights we did something nearly everyday and enjoyed every minute, went to the ice hotel you can't really explain in words how pretty the scenery is you have to go and see it to believe it. (more)Karen Waller
Driving a snowmobile was most memorable - 80 km journey to visit the Lainio Snow Village. Quite an exciting ride!Very good. I need to do another trip to see Northern Lights a bit better though! (more)Lucy Thomson
From 1658 including UK flights
Family multi activity week 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 1645 - 1725 including UK flights
Winter holiday in Finnish Lapland
Very good. Jeris resort is quiet away from crowds, good resting place after long active days. Good overall package, good food quality and quantity. Friendly staff. You need to help with feeding dogs and collect firewood, but wilderness cabin is a great experience. Open fires warm it up, is cosy. (more)Peter Varnes
Excellent! We managed to pack in a taster of most activities during our 4 day stay and found time to explore on our own too. Jeris Hotel where we stayed is friendly, comfortable, welcoming and is in the most beautiful setting on the lakeside. (more)Janet Anderson
A good all-round winter activity experience; value-for-money. (more)Carolyn Neville
From 740 - 945 including UK 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 winter holiday in Finland, Wild Taiga
Memorable parts? The number and variety of the activities available for our family, with children ranging from age 9 -16. We were able to go cross country skiing, do the biathalon, drive snow mobiles, snow shoe, float down icy rapids in a survival suit, go ice fishing and, the all time favorite, go dog sledding with the huskies. We loved being able to walk out of the hotel and take advantage of the miles and miles of ski trails (which were well maintained). The kids also loved being able... (more)Lesley Lahm
From 737 - 1086 excluding flights
Finland snowshoeing holiday
Memorable parts? The whole holiday was amazing, the location, the walks, skiing & husky sledding, the accommodation, the food & the wonderful staff who did their utmost to ensure that it was an unforgettable experience for us Tips? I thought that "winter equipment provided" meant snowshoes, skis & boots etc but all clothing (plus thermos, head torch, rucksack) was also available to borrow, no need to pack anything other than a few baselayers & something comfortable for the evening.... (more)Pauline Hawes
From 1199 - 1249 including UK flights
Log cabin holiday in Finland, with activities
The most memorable parts were the Food, the Huskies, the snowmobile trip. (more)John Rawstrone
Very memorable and would not hesitate to visit again, given the time and opportunity. Exciting part was the Snow Shoe walk at night in the Woods with an experienced guide imparting knowledge about the fauna and wildlife. (more)Tan Juliana
Though not able to see any northern light, the only memorable night was the smoked salmon dinner. (more)HC Toh
From 1095 - 1245 including UK flights

Overnight husky sledding trip was the highlight. (more)Lynn Houlding
From 1795 including UK 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...

From 1730 - 1870 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
