Fabulous trip to InariA review of Inari – Auroras in the Sami Heartlands by Naomi Fordyce06 March 2014
We've just got back from four nights in Inari and it was fabulous. Between the excellent range of activities on offer to the comfortable accommodation and delicious food and, of course, seeing the Northern Lights on two out of three hunts we had the best holiday ever. Our guide, Marku, was brilliant. His local knowledge was great and he was happy to answer all of our questions. He also gave up his own time on the night hunts so we could watch the lights. When we went snowshoeing they made a brief appearance as we were headed back to the minibus but he was quite happy to stop and let us watch them. On the snowmobile hunt we witnessed an amazing display for over an hour and a half. He only suggested we leave when people were starting to feel cold. I cannot praise his professionalism and dedication enough. There really was something for everyone and it was all pitched at the right level. We have memories to last us a lifetime, or until our next Aurora hunting holiday!
It was magicalA review of Luosto - Searching for the Aurora Borealis by Caroline Saunders06 March 2014
The snowshoe walk at night in the woods - it was magical with the trees glistening as though covered in diamond chips. I had no idea it would be so wonderful so it was an unexpected treat. But I also really loved the trip to the reindeer farm too. It was so nice to learn about and experience something of the local culture.
