I really can’t recommend Gareth and his team at Adventure by Design highly enough. Our party of 4 travelled with Gareth for 10 days in Jan/Feb 2020; we crossed country skied with our gear on sledges for a week, staying in mountain huts followed by an exhilarating two day husky ride. Gareth’s pre trip planning and his attention to detail on the trip itself was spot on. We felt safe whilst being out of our comfort zones and truly privileged to be part of the stunning lapland winter landscape. Gareth is passionate about his work as a guide and having been on many guided adventure trips over the years, recognise in Gareth an exemplary individual. Adventure by Design treated us to a truly fantastic, bespoke, trip that felt far removed from a tourist excursion. It was “Adventure by Design”. Thank you Gareth and team.

When you have a really good experience, you are always a little bit jealous to share it, because you want to keep t for yourself, like if it was a secret. This Is the right introduction that means that we really had a good time with them. We booked one day of cross country ski and we finished the day asking if it would be possible to do another day, so we did two day of ski and it was just amazing. This is the perfect place for you, if you are looking for quality and not quantity. They care about people and make feel people at home and welcomed. We spent two days with our guides, Amada and Jacco, they taught us how to ski and we talked with them, we shared stories, we learned a lot about wildlife and the environment. Thank you for this amazing ending of our holiday! We strongly recommend this place!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Gareth and Elina were really accomodating! They designed our itinerary perfectly and we get to enjoy every single of the activities without any worry. Our trip to the Scandinavian countries were perfect with their help.

We highly recommend Gareth and Elina. They were very good/fun guides with all the local knowledge. They organised all of our activities and did a quick change of plans if weather forced it. They were very conscientious and thoughtful to our needs especially making sure we had the correct clothing for each activity and food provided for my celiac husband <3. If any window of opportunity to see Aurora Borealis came up, we were notified and quickly bundled into the car and wizzed to viewing areas (and we were lucky enough to have a couple of hours break in the clouds). They even helped us understand this phenomenon with a workshop and helping us with the settings of our camera. We had such a wonderful time learning XCountry skiing for the first time and just absorbing and understanding their beautiful country whilst trying not to fall over :) You cannot get the same care and attention to detail with big tour companies.
