All the staff at Korpikartano are excellent. Clearly very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.A review of Menesjärvi - Wilderness Auroras by Paul Bassett08 March 2020
The food quality was excellent, plentiful, nutritious and tasty. The hotel, rooms, amenities and facilities are perfect. It's really nice to be in an unusual, repurposed building rather than a homogenized chain. The bedrooms are well equipped and comfortable, and really with so much to do outside they're just four sleeping in :-) I loved the physical exertion mixed with the tranquility of snow shoeing and cross country skiing through the forest. The snow mobile's appealed to me as a petrol head and didn't disappoint... although I would have loved a little more freedom to go off piste on the lake maybe. The fishing was a great experience to drill through the ice and peaceful although fruitless. The reindeer herder experience was really nice, authentic and personal, the herder was really friendly and personable and getting so close to the reindeer out in the forest was amazing. Overall though, I think I'd have to say the husky sledding was my favourite... the dogs were lovely, clearly well looked after and so enjoyed pulling the sleds.
Can’t really say any more. “Excellent” speaks for itself.A review of Nellim - Northern Lights over Lake Inari by Alexander Cruickshank08 March 2020
Honestly, I can’t differentiate. The snowmobiling and husky sled were two activities we hadn’t tried before and they were great. Meeting the dogs at the end was a bonus. The reindeer herder was also great. The camps in the evening were good fun too. Everything was superb.
This was a holiday I won't forget and I look forward to another Aurora Zone break in the futureA review of Nangu - Northern Lights short break by Jackie Siffleet05 March 2020
I'd booked this trip as a bucket list dream to see the Northern Lights and figured that if I wasn't lucky enough to see them, the activities would make up for it. I never did see the lights but this trip was full of wow and was a perfect holiday. The Nangu Wilderness Hotel is lovely, food great, staff fantastic and I loved every second... I just wish I could have stayed longer. I was really looking forward to the husky safari and it didn't disappoint but I was surprised how much I loved the snowshoeing (I'm 64 and not so fit!) and the snowmobiling with stunning views of the setting sun appearing at unexpected moments. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive and the Aurora Zone rep, Lucia, was fantastic and took the trouble to go into Inari to buy me the Sami drum I wanted and couldn't get at the hotel. This was a holiday I won't forget and I look forward to another Aurora Zone break in the future. Loved it!
It was money very well spent! Everything was perfect in Northern Lights Village. What a place!A review of Northern Lights Village Levi - Tailor-Made by Lorraine & Steven Pickett-Rose01 March 2020
The most enjoyable aspect was obviously seeing spectacular northern light show... every night of our stay-we were so so lucky. As for the prepaid acts... got to have been dog sleigh trip. Fully appreciated the tips on what to pack.. depending on activities booked. Never felt cold even when dipped to -25C!
