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

Sami people winter holiday in Norway with ice hotel
Memorable parts? As we came out of the woodland and onto the frozen lake, the thrill of running a team of 8 huskies gave way to awe at the sheer magical beauty of the landscape. The trees were heavy with snow, everything was white, touched by the light of the low sun. I have never felt so alive. Tips? Don't skimp on the layers! Although the Sami guides don't expect tips, we took some of our own produce (honey) to give as a thank you gift. This went down extremely well! Norway is... (more)Matt McCabe
