Finland, snowshoeing - superb

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I think there were at least two particularly memorable ones, though every day was inspirational: The two that for me stand out the most were: in the middle of the night when one of the gang was yelling and shouting outside the huts - the Aurora Borealis was performing - absolutely wonderful; the other was looking down at a fierce fierce waterfall covered by a shelf of ice......and meeting some lovely people who enjoyed the outdoors and the sense of adventure....not to mention the introduction to hot chocolate laced with mint liqueur (bottle purchased at Helsinki on return trip and still being enjoyed!)

What did you think of your group leader?

In a word, fantastic. Most of the leading was undertaken by Tessa, who was so very knowledgeable about the wildlife, tracking, and leading us through some dramatic scenery. Always cheerful, friendly and encouraging she was great to be with.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Go for it! You'll not regret it....and make sure you pack a spare battery/batteries for your camera plus charger

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Only to say a huge thank you to everyone for making this such a fabulous break. I'm now looking at this coming winter's options....
