  • This holiday scores 11/10

    A review of Nellim - Aurora in the Wild by Nicholas Losseff
    31 March 2015

    Quite frankly an amazing trip - we were blessed with three nights of Aurora sightings but even without this it was a stunning holiday. Lapland was beautiful in March and not too cold. All the activities were amazing fun and the local guides excellent and friendly. The snowmobiling and husky sledding were awesome. One of the Aurora nights was cosmic in proportion and made you realise how

  • I really enjoyed the entire trip

    A review of Harriniva - Northern Lights Quest with Aurora Cabin by Michelle Wald
    28 March 2015

    I really enjoyed the entire trip; was very peaceful to be in such a remote town with nice people and unique experiences. The airport transfer was easy, Luka awaited us with a sign. And Quincy was very nice greeting us as we arrived at the lodge. The rest of the trip was easy, clear communication of where to be when, easy access to all the right clothing/gear, great guides and friendly staff, fun

    husky ride, nice snowmobile safari (although those things are hard to turn!), accomodation was nice, especially compared to what I expected in a remote lodge like this. Food was fine, nothing super special, but also quite good for such a remote location. They even provided us some special veggie options upon request, so that was nice. The sauna was a nice warm break from the outside temperatures! I liked that we could reserve it privately for an hour, but I wonder if that would be possible during busier times. As when we were there the lodge was pretty empty. so in peak times, it might mean that some guests don't get a turn, which would be a shame. So overall a really nice winter holiday! Most enjoyable: seeing the Lights! We only got to see them our first night, as the next two were cloudy. but glad we caught them at all! the husky ride was also fun and special.I

  • Fantastic and incredibly memorable holiday!!!!

    A review of Inari – Auroras in the Sami Heartlands by Kirsten Lawrie
    26 March 2015

    Where do I start!? It was all incredible!! I suppose it started with the fact that Aurora Zone called us at Helsinki Airport on our way to Inari to let us know there had been a gate change for our connecting flight - what great service! The accommodation at Hotel Kultahovi was just lovely - the rooms were spacious, clean and having our own sauna was such a luxury! When we arrived, one of the

    owners was there to greet us and explain a little about the hotel. The food at the hotel was amazing - Arctic Char, slow-cooked pork, reindeer - just to name a few - we definitely didn’t go hungry! And there were three delicious courses every meal! Luckily we had lots of activities during the days and nights to help work off all of the food. The daytime activities were all fantastic: the highlights were definitely the snowmobiles and the husky safaris (we did the two night extension so had two husky safaris). Of course the main highlight of the whole trip was the incredible Northern Lights displays we were lucky enough to see. We saw something every night we were there! Just spectacular!! All of the guides we had were lovely and very knowledgeable (answering all of my silly questions). Antti was our guide for the first four days but then he had a couple of days off and on one of the nights he had off, he even called the guide we were with, Beth, to check if we could see the lights because he could see them where he was - it was so nice of him to think of us! Overall, everything just went so smoothly (and I was nervous because this was our first holiday that we haven't organised ourselves) and we could truly just relax and enjoy ourselves! Thank you Aurora Zone for a fantastic and incredibly memorable holiday!!!!

  • General atmosphere was very relaxed and genuinely welcoming

    A review of Menesjärvi - Wilderness Auroras by Rebecca Ship
    26 March 2015

    The food was good home-cooking and I never came away feeling I needed more. The general atmosphere was very relaxed and genuinely welcoming. The evening snowshoe walk into the forest with our guide Ville - Wonderful.  Snowmobiling (was) much harder than I expected, and nothing like driving a car. But I'm glad I did it! Also, ice fishing is not something I would particularly want to do again,
