I rate this trip extremely highly. Accommodation was great, food was excellent, weather was great, skiing and staying out in the wilderness was fantastic, northern lights spectacular, snow rolling sauna a whole lot of fun. (more)Anwen Victory
The most memorable part was living in the wilderness with no running water or electricity and in the company of a lovely first class guide. (more)Jan McGourty
More than 10 out of 10, amazing, fabulous and i really didn’t want to leave at all...Standing near our cabin in the wilderness in silence so absolute, you could hear a plane so far away you could barely see it and hear the water in the river over 5km away was the mostmemorable part.

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

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...

Northern Lights and whale watching holiday in Norway
Memorable parts? Getting so close to the whales was a truly special experience. The boat was a beaut and so cosy. The scenery was breath taking during the day and the stars/Northern Lights were beautiful at night time. Tips? Take plenty of warm things including a hot water bottle to use as a cushion on deck! Local benefits? Run by independent local business so yes in that respect. Seeing the whales close up made us care even more about their conservation. Unsure about environment... (more)Yoshiko Stokoe

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

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.

I would like nothing better than to go back for another visit. (more)Inge David
