FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The main reason for booking the holiday was to see the Northern Nights and we did.  The first night we arrived there they were in all their glory - well at least in glory enough not to be disappointed.  Husky sleding was also amazing.  Having your own team of 6 dogs pulling you through a winter wonderland is quite something.

What did you think of your group leader?

As we were a party of 20 we were split into tow groups for the activities.  Our group was led by Eki and the other by Teemu who also played host to the whole group.  Both of them were great, cannot praise them highly enough.  The same goes for all the staff at Base Camp.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Believe it when they say you do not need to bring any warm clothes.  They really do provide everything.  All you need are your clothes to travel in and a few changes for the evening.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

There could be a more comfortable area for guests to sit and while a way the evenings - some sofas and comfortable chairs.  Eki did tell us that they have plans to convert what is the clothing store into such a place which if that happens would be a real bonus.
