Lulea Half Term Taster

(Reviewed March 10, 2014)

We really enjoyed all activities and they were all really inclusive. A lot of thought went into each one. The guides were so enthusiastic, engaging and welcoming. The husky ride was sensational. The dogs were amazing and obviously love to run. They do get rather excited while they wait to go but this adds to the sense of fun. 8 inches of snow fell the night before and once we set off, we travelled in almost complete silence through Narnia- like forests. It was really beautiful. All family had a go at driving our the sledge. Snowmobiling was also fantastic. Hot food prepared al fresco was much appreciated and delicious.

Luosto Tunturi Design Your Own

(Reviewed March 6, 2014)

I cannot fault the experience in Luosto. We took the family of six adults and three children 8 to 12 years old and it was a very special holiday. Even the aurora put on a spectacular show for us despite the fact that this winter has been unusually warm and damp (hence cloudy). We enjoyed the husky and skimobile safaris. We skied and trekked on snowshoes and all in all every member of the group found something to remember.

We would like to thank Activities Abroad for a splendid family experience and for attentive and helpful service from your people. The hotel staff were excellent especially as we had one very ill little boy for the first few days. In common with most Finnish people we met, they were very positive and "can-do".

Menesjärvi February Half Term Northern Lights Hunt

(Reviewed March 6, 2014)

What a wonderful, magical place and the people we're so friendly and interesting. The equipment provided was free to use all week and the warm weather clothing was so good we needn't have taken our own boots or mittens. We knew there would only be one option at meal times so we took noodles and rice to fill the kids up. Having said that they did enjoy the majority of the meals served.

Seeing the aurora tops the list, closely followed by the husky rides and beach sauna. Everything else was amazing too, total grin factor from start to finish.

Thank you for providing us with a perfect family holiday, it can be tricky to accommodate a large family of 7 with a wide age range, but we can honestly say we all had the best time and didn't want to leave. Although we can say we've ticked that one off our bucket list, we just want to do it again!!
