Fantastic holidayA review of Torassieppi - Lakeside Auroras by Tina & Vincent Gray08 January 2017
Fantastic holiday at Torissieppi with excellent facilities and excursions giving a wonderful experience of Lapland. I would thoroughly recommend booking a cabin with log fire and excursions including husky and reindeer sleigh rides. Snowmobiles were great fun too. The 'warm weather clothing' that we were given for the duration of our holiday was ample to the task and we never found ourselves cold. I loved the gentle amble of the reindeer sleigh, but my husband preferred the husky sledding. Val was an exceptional excursion guide and Carly was a fantastic hostess in the restaurant. We saw the Northern Lights only on one night as the rest of the time it was too snowy and cloudy. This meant that it would be a waste of time going on a drive to look for clear skies, and we were offered a snowmobile ride instead if we would prefer that. Needless to say, we had such fun on the snowmobile ride that we felt this more than made up for our disappointment.
Katarina our guide was fantasticA review of Harriniva - Aurora Escape by Zoe Richards and Duncan Louca08 January 2017
Katrina our guide was fantastic - when one of our activities was delayed by 45 mins, she left a bottle of wine behind the bar for us to have with dinner as a way of apologising. She was always around to offer tips and advice during our stay. The guides and hotel staff were also fantastic and helped make our trip very enjoyable. We got engaged on the first day there - and we were soon getting lots of congratulations from all of the staff whenever they saw us. Most enjoyable activity: "It's a husky day" - it was great to get to work closely with the dogs, harnessing them up and feeding them as well as getting to take them out with the sledge. Least enjoyable activity: Probably the ice fishing - as there were no fish and we got rather cold. Not the fault of Aurora zone or the guides - they made it as comfortable and enjoyable as they possibly could.

Huskies!A review of Nellim - Northern Lights over Lake Inari by Elizabeth Davey and Amanda Aspinall08 January 2017
Huskies! Loved it and have always wanted to do it. Lovely dogs and fantastic as got time to enjoy it (not a quick 10 mins like some other holidays advertised). I think we did about 17km. Great to get time to meet and play with the dogs afterwards :-)
