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

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.

As if in a 3-D Christmas postcard that goes on for miles and miles and miles. (more)Edith van Genuchten

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...

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

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
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

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 £796 including UK 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

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
