Northern Lights tailor made holiday in Finland
From
£885
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Everything. All activities of the trip were such memorable and exciting. Tips? Just enjoy all the activities even if you don't feel like it. You won't regret it. Local benefits? Absolutely. Overall rating? 9/10. Less a point for 'missing out of one activity' but managed to schedule it back in. (more)Fred Wong

From
£1,325

10 OUT OF 10 (more)Jill Bridden
Every minute I spent in Finland was truly memory making! To walk in snowy woods along paths through the trees, to hear nothing but the sound of my breath was so soul restoring. (more)Marilyn Molyneux

Husky safari in Finland
From
£1,495
including UK flights
Bounding through the snow-covered woods, balancing on the runners of the sledge with the dogs running in front of me. (more)Tim Goodwin
This is not a holiday but a true adventure 300 kilometres of wilderness country. Its a time warp living away from all the rat race of modern society. (more)Alan Warwick
It almost goes without saying that the scenery is breathtaking from the outset but the real memories are the dogs and the bond you form with them. Cruising through the wilderness with your own team is a mixture of calm and excitement that is nicely balanced by caring for your dogs when their work is done. (more)Gareth Jones
Snowshoeing in the French Alps
From
€985
excluding flights
The husky dog sledding, the ice climb, the snowshoeing itself, being out in such a beautiful environment! And our companions too - the other four people in the party were lovely, and we all got on very well together - enough in common to bond yet different enough for good conversation! (more)Angela Dennison
In terms of the most exciting part, it has to be the ice climbing...not part of our original plans but I'm so glad it was suggested. Slow down and enjoy your stay in what really is an undiscovered part of the Alps. (more)Norma Sherratt
Well organized, interesting, hassle free and great fun- the ideal introduction to the activities. (more)Matt Hannah

Wellbeing holiday in North Iceland
From
€1,100
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? We had a fantastic whale watching trip from Husavik. Saw several grey whales close to our boat. One was very active and actually breached for us! Visit to steaming geothermal area bubbling pools of water and mud and smelling strongly of rotten eggs! Tips? Needed information about transport between international and domestic airports in Reyjavik. Had to use taxi between bus terminal and domestic airport which we were not told about. More information about our... (more)Jeanne Weston

Iceland Northern Lights & Astronomy holiday, South Coast
From
€1,800
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Our visit to the Blue Lagoon lake for me was probably the best day of the trip. I very much appreciated being dropped off by our guide away from the main tourist spot, and we walked, as a group, along the edge of the frozen lake. It was so peaceful and quiet, and we were able to take lots of photographs, and see seals and eider ducks, before we reached the end of the lake, where there were hoards of visitors. I also enjoyed our daily picnic lunches, in spite of trying... (more)Lesley McManus
Wolf tracking in Sweden
From
€1,845
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This tour was memorable for all of the right reasons. If the aim of the company is to ensure guests 'collect memories not things' then they certainly delivered. The ethereal scenery sets the tone for the tour, each day going with the flow of nature and it's wildlife. The anticipation of finding tracks or wildlife sightings is all part of the fun. It is food for the soul. A night hike and Marcus' howling is something quite special. The guest house Pensionat Udden is a home... (more)Rachel North

From
CA $1,328
excluding flights
Working with the dogs was my favourite part of the trip. I loved meeting all the different dogs and getting to know their different personalities. They are such great workers and I miss them now I am back home. (more)Ali Barned
The dogs are just incredible... athletic, fascinating to watch, and beautiful. Our guide Laird was fantastic as were all the other people at the ranch... I had a fabulous time. Pushed my limits... this has been 'one' of the best holidays I have been on. (more)Helen Weir
Fantastic. I have always wanted to try sledding and finally did. Now I just need to convince my other half to go again next winter! (more)Lee Unsworth

Excellent...The stay at the guest house- amazing! The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble at all. The tour guides were outstanding. (more)Margaret Da costa
The most memorable part was the gorge walk and bat caves, it was magical in the winter with a full snow covering...Excellent a most memorable holiday... (more)Lois Carrington King

Slovakia family holiday, winter in High Tatras
From
€799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole thing was excellent. My children loved learning to ski and the dog sledding, but I think my favorite was the winter walk on New Years day. Tips? Snow would probably be better during the February Half term - but if you want to book at Christmas it is still fantastic, you just might need to be more flexible. Local benefits? Slovakia is a fantastic destination, but it is not as well marketed as other countries. I feel that our visit supported our guide... (more)Paula Stevens

It is the best holiday we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years holidaying in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell
