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

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 €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...

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

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 €1200 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
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
