We had a great time doing all the activities with the help of the great Transun reps! A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, would definitely stay at... More

I returned from a Transun Holidays' Aurora Hunter trip on the 25th January and the trip and Hotel were excellent. The weather was exceptionally cold -39C but the Hotel was always warm even if the weather was too cold even for the huskies. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel is excellently placed for a daytime walk... More

Booked as a surprise I had no idea what we were going to find. The Davvi was really great so ignore the negative reviews. Inside the Arctic circle, the hotel was warm and comfortable with no frills food but always hot and plentiful. Staff were polite and helpful at all times. Definitely opt for a cabin if you can as...

It was a bit strange going on holidays without being able to manage your booking or check-in online in advance. We turned up at the airport a bit unsure as to what would happen but everything ran smoothly and we arrived ok. The whole experience was very enjoyable although you had to keep checking the noticeboards to make sure you... More

Totally agree with the previous reviewer. We stayed at the Davvi for the Transun Aurora Hunter holiday 11-18 Jan. We stayed in one of the main hotel rooms on the lower floor and were comfortable and the room was quiet. There was a water pipe problem caused by the freezing conditions (minus 34C early in the week) but the hotel... More

One of the best activity holidays we have ever had! Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, which included husky sledding, snowshoeing, reindeer camp, forest trek and snowmobiling. The activities were well organised and felt we got value for money. All of the staff (Transun, Santa Safari and hotel) were very friendly and helpful. Would have liked to have seen a daily... More

Stayed here on our Transun visit it see Santa. Hotel basic but clean. Food basic but edible. The log cabin was great just what we expected. Pretty good for a hotel in the middle of nowhere! Take a travel kettle etc as none in cabin.

We were quite anxious before this trip, as it was a completely new adventure for us and some of the reviews had made us wonder if we had made a wise decision. We need not have worried - this was the best trip we have ever had and the key I think is to revel in where you are; the... More
