  • Great last-minute info on the changing Covid requirements

    A review of Nellim New Year Aurora Adventure by The Dye Family
    31 December 2021

    It was a really tough call to pick the most memorable part of the holiday (we were discussing it daily!), every experience was great - up until the last day when we did huskies! That just topped off the week; the dogs going crazy, then the silence of gliding through the trees across the snow, and then meeting and cuddling the dogs! Great last-minute info on the changing Covid requirements,

    really helpful and reassuring, thank you! Travel documents all clear and comprehensive too. The packing and clothing info was really helpful. Diogo (hotel restaurant) was amazing; friendly, efficient, and happy to make sure we had a great time. Also, Pim (guide), who was clearly very happy to share his knowledge and skills. We saw the Northern Lights. The travel experts were great. They responded quickly advising better choice of holidays for our family and added first-hand knowledge of the proposed destinations.

  • We loved every moment!

    A review of Christmas in a Jeris Winter Cottage by The Airs Family
    24 December 2021

    We loved every moment; such an amazing holiday, too many memories but the huskies and meeting Father Christmas were the highlight of our trip. Our guide was excellent, she really made our holiday. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and the restaurant staff were also brilliant in the hotel.

  • We were treated to an amazing northern lights display right above the hotel

    A review of Christmas in a Jeris Winter Cottage by The Mullany Family
    23 December 2021

    Every day was fun-filled but 2 of the most memorable experiences were the husky safari and meeting the reindeer herder. December 24th (Christmas Day) was perfect, a family cross country ski on the lake, followed by a traditional Christmas lunch, festive cooking making and dinner in the Lappish hut cooked on a roaring fire.  To top it off, we were treated to an amazing Northern Lights display

    right above the hotel around midnight. All of the guides and staff were great, they all helped to make it an amazing family holiday. Graham was great, answered loads of questions re vaccine certificates and entry requirements and gave us recommendations for our city break in Helsinki. We loved the seclusion of the resort and really felt like we experienced the authentic Lapland.

  • We had an amazing time and made so many memories

    A review of Nellim New Year Aurora Adventure by The Wise Family
    21 December 2021

    We had an amazing time and made so many memories. Our most memorable part of the holiday was seeing the Northern Lights on Christmas Eve - magical! The husky sledging was our favourite activity. We also really enjoyed the wilderness walks as the guides were fantastic. The travel experts offered lots of options and explained all of the ever-changing testing requirements too.

  • Absolutely amazing experience

    A review of A Magical Search for Father Christmas by The Meredith Family
    16 December 2021

    Meeting Santa was an absolutely amazing experience. To get so much time there and meet Mrs Claus was incredible. We also hugely enjoyed husky sledding. Overall this was probably one of the best holidays we’ve ever been on. Considering it was only 4 days, the trip was absolutely fantastic and we did not want to leave. We said it would be a once in a lifetime experience but would certainly

    consider going back although probably for a slightly different trip since you can’t do Santa twice! We would definitely travel with Activities Abroad again and thank everyone for all of their help in organising such a special unforgettable trip.

    A review of Muotka - Activity Pick and Mix by Renju Karukayil
    07 March 2020

    We enjoyed all the activites. We think, it is important to do few activites and enjoy it. We loved the hotel and location.
