We recently walked the Land of Giants Trek organised by Gareth from Adventure By Design. It proved to be the highlight of our 3-month Scandinavian Tour. Gareth tailored the walk to suit our timetable - we spent the first and last nights at a lovely chalet on the edge of Lake Kilpisjarvi and four nights out in the comfortable and... More

We have spent a 5 days photographic tour in Lapland organized by Adventure by Design. Gareth was our private guide. During the trip we stayed in Kilpisjarvi, in a nice and warm chalet with our own private sauna and moved each day to different locations.

Gareth helped us organise a 5 day trip in Hettä, a remote town in Northern Finland, in which we were able to experience a variety of out door activities of our choice including snow shoeing, visiting the husky safari and chasing the northern lights each night. Gareth could also speak Finnish to aid translating for the locals. I greatly recommend... More

I spent 4 days with Gareth hiking and snow shoeing around the Oulanka National Park, a must do trip for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life and see the awesome beauty of this stunning national park. The trip was superbly well planned, everything was organised properly, with no detail overlooked. We... More

We did a two-day snowshoe-hiking tour with Gareth in the northern part of Lapland - very exciting, very beautiful scenery! Gareth did everything to make this trip as comfortable as possible: He made sure, we had enough snacks, drinks, food and rest and even carried our luggage... A very memorable trip, we can only recommend his tours.
