I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Northern Lights tailor made holiday in Finland
From
£895
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
Husky safari in Finland
From
£1,625
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
Finland Northern Lights holiday, Wilderness Auroras
From
£1,395
including UK flights
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
One of the best holidays we have ever had, we loved it all. (more)Samantha May
Snowshoeing in the French Alps
From
€1,151
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

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
Wolf tracking in Sweden
From
€1,567
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

We all had a super time and really hope to be back next year! (more)Patience Scott-Brown

per person per night
The peaceful ambience was the thing that will stay with me - although there was also so much excitement of course on the tours, new year's eve party etc. For a city dweller it was the perfect way to unwind and 'get away from it all. (more)Tom Cooper-Jones
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

Memorable parts? The amazing location of the ice festival on the huge frozen lake. People dashing around on horse sleighs.

Also, the herds of horses, yaks, cattle and sheep and goats roaming freely all over the countryside. The Deer Stones near Muron were so interesting. Tips? Jess is so helpful and responds to any queries about the trips. I felt confident about... (more)Sally-Anne Deards

Snowshoeing holiday in Chamonix
From
£1,149
including UK flights
This was our first experience of a winter holiday and snow shoeing, although a challenge to experience the solitude of the high peaks and silent snow fields was amazing. (more)David Knapper
The snowshoe walks on the Alps and the stay at Chalet Savoy were the highlights of this holiday. The walks took us to the top of the world, literally. They were envigorating and the scenery was stunning. (more)Gabriel Decio

Finland activity holiday and Northern Lights
From
€1,140
excluding flights
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
Winter family holiday in Slovakia, 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
