Reviews for Cross-country skiing holiday in Finland


review 26 Mar 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Meeting our hosts was a particular pleasure. I did not expect such openness and warmth and to learn so much about Karelian culture and recent history through family stories that our hosts shared with us.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you are not cross-country skiing throughout winter prepare yourself by exercising on a cross country trainer for several weeks before your trip. Even though you may be very physically fit you will be working a different set of muscles, especially your adductors, for which you can do special stretching exercises.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, as most food served by hosts was locally grown; very nice souvenirs produced locally; bed linen was carried by us from one to the next gesthouse, ect.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

After more than 40 years of traveling to Finland I had high expectations. However, Minna Murtonen and her entire team, provided a superb service, easy comfort, delicious food, and expert ski guidance that exceeded my wildest expectations. The holiday was an utter success and I would heartily recommend it to any cross country enthusiast.
