  • All in all, a perfect holiday!

    A review of Luosto Finnish Lapland Taster Week by Clare Bromly
    25 January 2011

    Having endured 6 weeks of snowy weather prior to the holiday, I was questioning whether I should've booked a winter sun holiday. How glad I was that I hadn't done so as we had one of our best holidays ever.The weather was perfect, crisp cold clear days, lovely powdery snows, activities planned every day which were close by and well organised so there was no hassle or stress involved. The children

    were never bored which meant my experience was much more pleasant!The hotel was quiet and friendly, the swimming pool kept the children entertained each day, it could've been slightly warmer as we spent hours in there! The restaurant was very pretty with Christmas decorations and candles and the food was very good quality and plentiful.My son loved the snow fishing and he caught 5 fish, which was the record of the day. I caught one and felt as excited as if I'd landed Jaws!The husky farm had a month old puppy for us to cuddle which was a big hit with the children.All in all, a perfect holiday.

    A review of Luosto Log Cabin - Activity Pick and Mix by Shelly Hill
    17 January 2011

    Wow, what a fantastic holiday. We decided to book a log cabin for some much needed downtime following an absolutely crazy year and it couldnt have been any better, the cabin was amazing, there was nothing quite like coming in after an activity, lighting the fire and just watching the snow fall outside - brilliant.The activities were brilliant, we took a snowshoe trek up a mountain in search of the

  • Excellent info and advice

    A review of Christmas in a Jeris Winter Cottage by Alison Johnson
    11 January 2011

    The most enjoyable was everything on Xmas eve as it suddenly felt like Xmas. The days before were busy with other fun activities but we had started to forget it was actually Christmas until we went to choose the Xmas tree in the forest. After that it was all very magical especially going to see father Christmas in his cottage. Although the reps Karen and mike hadn't been at jeris for long and

    didn't know everything they were always available and friendly. If they didn't know they would find out. Thomas the local guide was fabulous - amazing with the kids and everyone loved him! We also received excellent info and advice from staff over the telephone prior to and after booking. So impressed with the level of knowledge about the whole holiday it left us confident about the quality of the holiday.

  • Thank you Activities Abroad for organising a fab holiday

    A review of Harriniva - Activity Pick and Mix by Carol Peppercorn
    06 January 2011

    The hotel could do with a bigger lounge area where guests can relax and talk. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday had by all. Even my 90 year old father in law had the time of his life, riding a skidoo and driving a reindeer sleigh. The staff at Harriniva were very accommodating and friendly. Mena our activity guide was excellent. Thank you Activities Abroad for organising a fab holiday for us.

  • The highlight was Father Christmas

    A review of Christmas in a Jeris Winter Cottage by Stephen Barganski
    04 January 2011

    Mike and Karen looked after us extremely well in an unpushy and friendly manner. We always felt well informed and that everything was under control. The local guides were also patient, very friendly and extremely skilled. We were, therefore, able to feel totally relaxed about the activites, even though we could potentially have been a bit apprehensive about trying new winter activities like

    snowmobiling and husky-sledding.The whole holiday was enjoyable, so it's hard to pick a favourite. The dog-sledding was so exhilarating that we chose to go again as an optional extra on Christmas Day, but we also really enjoyed the more low-key but wonderfully led activites around the hotel. The snow-shoe walk in the forest on the first day didn't sound very exciting on paper, but to find a wood fire burning in a snow-hollow, with reindeer skins arranged around it for us to sit on, so we could relax, toast marshmallows and meet the other families was wonderful. We also thought the Christmas Eve activites were fantastic. The children enjoyed choosing and decorating a Christmas Tree, but the highlight was the beautifully arranged visit to Father Christmas, which was truly magical.

    The best activity was the Huskies, although we also took an optional activity of Ice Fishing on Christmas Day - this was a wonderful experience for us and the kids - there will never be another Christmas Day like it. Our best Christmas ever - thank you Activities Abroad!
