    A review of Luosto - Snow and Ski Active Pick and Mix by Margaret Mossman
    21 January 2013

    5 of us (me and my husband plus our daughter, her partner and their 9month old son) have just returned from Luosto and have had a fabulous time. We chose a design your own activities holiday so that we could play in the snow in pairs, leaving someone always available to babysit, and the program worked very well. We really enjoyed everything we did. We had obviously been aware of how cold it would

    be for baby so went prepared with lots of warm clothing for him, but the guides were able to find a suit small enough for him to wear so he was even able to enjoy the toboggan run with us! We chose to stay in the hotel where there was a pool, which we all enjoyed as a family and the staff were very accommodating of a young child.Thank you Activities Abroad for a wonderful week - but the icing on the cake you couldn't have arranged - the Northern Lights in all its glory!!!!!! WOW.

  • Fantastic holiday

    A review of Jeris Family Winter Cottage Adventure by Nicholas Sherwood
    09 January 2013

    We had a fantastic holiday which was topped off by seeing the aurora on our last night. The clear starry night was also an incredible experience. We were all very sad to return home.

  • Brilliant Holiday

    It was a brilliant holiday and ran so smoothly. I will definitely be looking to book something with you again at some point. We also met some really lovely families.

  • It succeeded in converting a beach loving family to a winter activities family

    A review of A Magical Search for Father Christmas by Emma Kern
    07 January 2013

    Wow what a trip; this really was a trip of a lifetime. The whole trip was amazing. The organisation was slick from start to finish. Never did we have to wait for a coach to collect us or a guide to meet us, they were always there on time with a nothing is too much trouble attitude. The guide Risko was brilliant and always made sure that we were happy by going over and above on every activity. The

    facilities for the children was superb, our youngest was only 4 years old yet every activity was suitable for him.The group we shared the trip with consisted of 23 people (and) was the perfect number. (We) still cannot believe that we never came across another group while we were there, which made the trip feel even more exclusive.This was the trip where dreams came true and it succeeded in converting a beach loving family to a winter activities family.A magical way to meet Father Christmas with memories children will treasure forever. Worth every penny.

  • The most amazing holiday

    A review of Menesjärvi Christmas Northern Lights Adventure. by Lynda Scrivener
    07 January 2013

    We have had the most amazing holiday and everything was virtually faultless. We had delays both ways on our flights, but that was the only snag. The owners, staff and guides at Hotel Korpikatano were wonderful, extremely welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. They provided a fantastic Christmas we will never forget. To make everything just perfect, we saw the northern lights on 3 out of our

    6 night stay, and the most spectacular display was on Christmas night. We couldn't have asked for anything more.We were very pleased to find Activities Abroad and this holiday in particular. It meant that we could do all of the activities that we wanted to do for one inclusive price. On other holidays we looked at, the activities weren't included and once we factored them in, everything seemed to work out a lot more expensive overall. It was very good value for money. The destination and hotel were perfect for our active family, and we'd love to return now in the summer for the midnight sun! One day. Fingers crossed.

  • It (was) just a magical experience that we will never forget

    A review of A Magical Search for Father Christmas by Emma Bradshaw
    07 January 2013

    We had a wonderful holiday in Kuusamo and it met up to all our expections. As you said small exclusive group, which is what we got, and non commercial. It was very well organised and well planned. Tanya Elf and Hristo were fantastic with adults and children. It (was) just a magical experience that we will never forget. Thank you

  • Just the right balance

    A review of Luosto Finnish Log Cabin Taster Week by Sandra Peters
    07 January 2013

    Loved the log cabin and self-catering was the perfect option - don't try to put people off; the walk isn't that bad, the facilities are full, ie a complete oven not just microwave or hob (as in many ski s/c experiences in France), the shop is sufficient if you bring rice/pasta with you etc. We paid for one hotel breakfast but it wasn't worth the money - and no discount. Our rep couple was superb -

    they both worked very hard and took a real interest in each person/couple/family; they went out of their way to help in all circumstances, and we would like to thank them for their help finding Santa! Equally they were not intrusive and we could just get on with it if we chose - just the right balance. Activity guides - awesome - loved them all! Very passionate about what they do and SO considerate and genuine. Brilliant with children too and very patient.

  • So memories to treasure for the rest of our life

    A review of Luosto - Snow and Ski Active Pick and Mix by Maria Woolley
    02 January 2013

    The activities were great fun. We opted for snow mobile - was good fun to try, daughter was bit cold on back of it. The journey consisted of a ride for around 1 hour to Tepe for drinks/snacks and then ride back for around 1 hour again. The journey out was bit disappointing ... better on way back as you seemed to go more cross-country rather than straight line (which was more fun on the

    snowmobile).The chap who took us out was great and very knowledgeable.Second trip was the ' night snow shoe in search of northern lights'. We were a bit worried about whether our daughter (12) would cope with this, but she was fine and enjoyed it. Our guide was 'Pascal' and he was fantastic .. really made the trip. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, country and northern lights. Unfortunately it was too cloudy to see any lights but was still great fun.Third trip was 'night husky safari'. No problems with my daughter enjoying this one! Great fun - even if you’re just sitting in the sledge. As it had been snowing quite a bit that day the huskies needed a little help up the hills, so be warned – it’s not an easy ride! Afterwards we got to see the dogs and puppies (gorgeous) and warm up with hot drink and snack. Was a really great activity and well recommended.We also went skiing in the resort. I went skiing a long time ago and my daughter had never been, so we opted to have a skiing lesson. Was well worth it - 90 mins of tuition and we were well away. Although we didn't stay after this as it was very cold and tiring! Went back 2 days later and weather was warmer, so we managed nearly 3 hours. If you're a beginner skier the slopes are ideal, very quiet and plenty of areas to practise. My husband is more confident but like me hadn't been for a while, so he even felt some of the more difficult slopes were still challenging.The reps at the resort were second to none. Absolutely great! Very friendly and helpful.Overall we have had a fantastic holiday and so memories to treasure for the rest of our life. Many thanks.
