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

This was a memorable holiday from beginning to end. Lots of winter activities that we took part in, with help and encouragement from an excellent guide. Saw the northern lights on two occasions - spectacular - and if we had had the inclination to get out of bed after midnight could have seen them on more occasions.

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

The operator provides lots of helpful information on what to take and what not to take - read it carefully - it is very useful. In addition to the balaclava provided we took "buffs" - thermal neckwarmers which were very good on the exceptionally cold nights aurora watching - down to minus 30 C on one occasion. The only part of you not protected by their thermal clothing is part of your face and it can get very cold, especially if you are traveling at speed in a snowmobile.

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

The local guide was excellent, and we visited several locally run and operated attractions.

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

It was excellent - far better than I had hoped for.

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

The husky sledging was amazing and we also got to see the northern lights we did something nearly everyday and enjoyed every minute, went to the ice hotel you can't really explain in words how pretty the scenery is you have to go and see it to believe it.

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

If thinking about taking kids especially aged 3 to 12 would only go for 3 to 4 days a week is to long for them especially as it is very cold and one day is not long enough. But would recommend go on your own if you can as it will be well worth it.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Definitely benefited local people as stayed around the same area and our guide was from Kittila in Finland.

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

10 out of 10 for the food, the hotel staff where excellent, Jaakko our guide and the tour company.

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

Driving a snowmobile - 80 km journey to visit the Lainio Snow Village. Quite an exciting ride!

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

Check the group's composition (nationalities) if you can. I didn't - we had 2 Dutch, 5 German and me. Fortunately the Dutch couple were very fluent in English. A German dictionary would have been useful - I had one at home. The warm clothing supplied is very good quality, as is all the equipment. Unless you want to ski, you do only need thermals and the clothing supplied for the activities. The leader was very safety conscious and made sure everyone understood all precautions etc. You'll be safe. Take goggles to wear if the forecast is lower than -5 - it's cold in the wind and sunglasses may not be enough eye protection.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes - used local people who bred Huskies and kept reindeer, the hotel was staffed by local people too.

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

Very good. I need to do another trip to see Northern Lights a bit better though!
