We had a really fantastic time at Nellim, and cannot recommend this holiday too highly. If you don't want to lie on a beach and make sandcastles, this is a great way to spend a week learning new things in a really fun way in a very special environment.
The accommodation was cosy and warm, well-furnished and (in room 302 at least) spacious. We had everything we needed and more. The food was a lovely balance of scandinavian and standard european (with chips as a special treat for the youngsters) and was really plentiful so we were always very well-fed.
The guides were truly wonderful: patient, good-humoured and very informative so now we all know how to make a fire in the snow, how to use a husky sled and lots more besides.
Ben, the Activities Abroad rep could not have been more helpful, not that there was much for him to sort out. He even booked the aurora!!
We want to go again!
