We learned so much and experienced unique customs

…Our total experience for all tours was very memorable. We learned so much and experienced unique customs and traditions and the Finns and Sami people were very friendly and informative. This is one experience I did not have on my bucket list, but glad we had the opportunity to experience such a wonderful time. Efficient tour operators from booking to the actual tours themselves made it a wonderful winter holiday experience. Thank you.

The experience was faultless

All worked perfectly. Tour guide was prompt, informative and had a great personality.

It is good to see a tour company honour their committments to customers however few people may be on the tour  The tour worked perfectly. Transport was on time, tours were excellent and the tour guide was superb at her job. The experience was faultless. Thank your for a great tour.

We all had a fantastic time

We arrived home from Lapland last night and I just wanted to let you know that we all had a fantastic time. Lapland Safaris, who took us on the night-time snowmobile safari, dog-sledding adventure and reindeer farm, were excellent, very well organised and friendly. The hotel, Clarion Santa Claus, was very comfortable, terrific breakfast each morning and check-out wasn't until 12 noon on the day we left which was great. All your arrangements and bookings worked very smoothly. Thank you.
