No 1 holiday!
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The huskie sledging was fantastic, driving a team of 5 huskies, I felt like the snow queen in Narnia. The scenery and snow covered trees were breath taking Building our snow igloo was hard work but rewarding, especially the amazing sunset that evening. Trying to sleep in it was fun, pay attention to smoothing the floor, otherwise trying to sleep on chunks of ice isn't great
What did you think of your group leader?
Henri, our leader was great, knowledgeable and informative, the rest of the team were great, especially the chefs who cooked huge quantities of delicious food for our hungry bellies, second helpings were a regular occurrence People with dietary requirements were well catered for
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Thick socks aren't included, so take a few pairs. I found I needed my thicker skiing jacket rather than the one base camp provide, but then I feel the cold. Also I used a thicker hat As said in previous reviews, take base layers, everything else is provided Take a towel for the hot tub We over packed, could have got away with a pair of jeans and a few tops for the evening. There is nowhere to go out at base camp, it really is in the middle of nowhere
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Overall, a fantastic holiday and worth every penny. The snow was amazing, the silence at night took a bit of getting used too My only gripes would be the flight times, we arrived at 23.00 so had dinner at midnight and coming back we had to be up at 5 am, Also I think lunches should be included in the price except on free days, as there is nowhere else to eat
