Fabulous Finland

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The unexpected moments can be the best.Lunch stop on the little bear trail proved a treat.We had some leftover porridge bread from lunch and stood with our hands open as we heard some bird calls above us.Our guide said they were SIberian jays and a curious bird.They swooped down and took the food from our outstretched hands again and again,an unscripted moment and quite wonderful.

What did you think of your group leader?

Cheery,unflappable,knowledgable and full of stories.He was willing to flex and work with our questions and concerns.Unfortunatly he was unable to supply a view of the aurora borealis as parting the clouds was not covered in his Wilderness training so we did not see the skies light up!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

My one piece of advice would be to budget well you may have more free time then you expect. I had expected to be outdoors for lunch as we were snowshoeing but that was not the case always and as a result the afternoons were free.There is lots to do from the reindeer farm visit to huskies to cross country sking but come expecting to pay extra and budget accordingly.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you have the time and money I really recommend the full day with the huskies!To mush across 30 km with these dogs was fun so long as you used the break!
