    A review of Menesjärvi Half-Term Northern Lights Adventure by Adrian Langford
    24 February 2014

    Wow what a great time.All of the activities arranged were excellent and our whole family had a wonderful trip.Our only gripe would be the accomodation size and lack of food choice, but the positives far out way this minor flaw.Having never been on a holiday like this before, we were pleasantly surprised by the activities on offer and the overall experience from booking to arriving home.

    definitely recommend Activities Abroad and the overall holiday to friends.I have never visitied anywhere in the world quite so tranquil as the very northern part of Finland.If you are thinking of going, please do. Just make sure you take a few things for the kids to do and I guarantee they won't get bored, just very tired.

  • Luosto multi-activity taster sensation!

    A review of Luosto Finnish Lapland Taster Week by Rebecca Phillips Marques
    14 February 2014

    It's not often that a holiday manages to exceed everyone's expectations and consistently keep both adults and children happy for a week, but this one did just that. As a family group of 3 adults and 2 children I can honestly rank this amongst our best holidays ever - so much fun!The taster holiday is a great way to do just enough of everything, with plenty of time for relaxing in the sauna too.

    The accommodation was very comfortable, food much tastier than it at first appeared, and the activities were well organised and hugely enjoyed by all of us. Something I appreciated was the absence of souvenir shops at all the attractions, and the authentic feel that the local guides and activity providers maintain. We didn't get to see the Aurora, but I wouldn't be surprised if we came back for another try!

  • Snowmobiles to huskies - active and well organised

    A review of Nellim Christmas Aurora Adventure by James Dodd
    13 February 2014

    Well organised and spread through the week. All the staff were very good and helped to ensure it was an enjoyable holiday.The day in the wilderness was excellent - the kids loved building fires! All activities were very enjoyable. From snowmobiles to huskies - it was all active and well thought through.

  • Enjoyed all activities

    A review of Menesjärvi Christmas Northern Lights Adventure. by Stephanie Dobson
    13 February 2014

    We enjoyed all the activities but the best was dog sledding. We were involved in harnessing the dogs to the sleds (which was great fun) and then went for a long ride. Most exhilarating and enjoyable. We've just returned from a fantastic holiday which was every bit as good as hoped. Your brochure gives a very accurate description of the holiday and we were pleasantly surprised at how well

    everything seemed to slot together from the flights right through to the various activities on offer. The owners of the hotel have a great loyal team working with them and everyone works incredibly hard. They are clearly passionate about what they do. They were very helpful and approachable. Nothing was too much trouble.

  • Enjoyed all activities

    A review of Menesjärvi Christmas Northern Lights Adventure. by Sophie Taylor
    13 February 2014

    We enjoyed all the activities, but in particular the visit to the reindeer farm was very interesting and the herder was a great host. The husky safari was an amazing experience too. Sadly we only got one tantalising glimpse of the northern lights - might have to try again next year!We would consider another similar trip next winter as this has been such a success.

    Your reps in Luosto, are absolutely brilliant. A warm welcome and gentle checks that everything was OK in the mornings and at the activities. They are genuinely committed to making sure that your guests have a great time.We booked a snow shoe hike and snowmobile/dog sleigh excursion with you, which both went really well. Snow games are excellent partners.I booked this trip to celebrate my wife's

  • Really hard to pick the best activity

    A review of Luosto Finnish Log Cabin Taster Week by Samantha Patterson
    13 February 2014

    Really hard to pick the best activity as the cross country skiing, snow trekking and ice fishing were really popular with us all. The amethyst mine was great - actually digging for the amethysts was engrossing. Husky sledging was fantastic.

  • Amazing stay in Jeris
