  • We can't thank Activities Abroad enough for the most memorable trip ever

    A review of Harriniva - Activity Pick and Mix by Helen Tinnion
    13 May 2012

    My husband and I booked our trip to Finland through Activities Abroad who were fantastic!!!! We weren't sure which resort to choose but Activities Abroad helped to choose a resort and hotel that would suit our personal preferences and the type of holiday we wanted. We've been on winter holidays before i.e. skiing, but I would say going to a resort just off the Arctic Circle is quite different. AA

    advised us on the type of clothing we would need for our choice of activities, which is all available to hire at the resort as part of the package, so no need to go and buy expensive equipment. We weren't sure what activities or type of package to book, again AA were right on the money with helping us choose.We decided to book a 'tailor made' package or as the resort called it an 'independent' package. This really suited the both of us, as we wanted to have great experiences, but also wanted to relax and take in the beautiful scenery and enjoy the hotel's facilities. We arrived Sunday evening and stayed at the Harrinniva Centre, which was just perfect. It's warm and cosy and the staff are very welcoming and very on the ball. It's quite a large hotel, but didn't feel like it it was. (It was) a bit like a big 'Three Bears Cottage', everything made of wood right down to the light fittings.The food was excellent, very homely and very tasty. There's a great restaurant for breakfast and evening dinner (included in the package), the restaurant is also open for tasty bar lunches during the day. It has a great little pub to enjoy a few evening drinks. Our double room was very spacious with its own sauna and outdoor terrace, where we enjoyed sipping brandy and taking in the view.The activities we were recommended by AA were:Snow Shoe Walking; a great way to explore and see the scenery on our first day.Evening Snowmobile drive to see the Northern Lights; sadly we didn't get to see the Northern Lights but the ride through the snow at night was just awesome!!Ice fishing; great fun, our guide Thomas was a real character and very helpful throughout our whole trip (don't forget your hip flask).Husky driving; the most amazing thing I've ever done in my life!!! Our last night was spent in the ICEHOTEL; all I can say about this is Wow Wow Wow totally indescribable.We can't thank Activities Abroad enough for the most memorable trip ever, from start to finish they took care of every detail!! The other thing I must point out about this wonderful company is that they visit the resorts and hotels that they are selling and therefore have thorough knowledge and know exactly what they are taking about. They will go above and beyond to provide the best experience ever. Finland is so beautiful, fresh and clean we will certainly be going back hopefully very soon.Thanks again Activities Abroad :)
