We did the Auld Lang Syne trip in Dec 30th 2012 with Transun and stayed at the Hetan Majatalo. We were luck with the weather as most of the time it was -4°C, with lowest at -10°C. The thermal suits were great and kept us warm for all the events. The hotel was lovely, we had 5 in one room - on two levels (3 kids + Mum and Dad) and it was fine - little bit tight, but that was part of the fun. The food at the hotel was exceptionally good - something for kids of all ages and a good variety and that was for all sittings, beakfast, lunch and dinner. The Transun staff were helpful and friendly as were the locals, they just stopped and chatted. The excusions from Transun were great, and I would recommend the Huskey Northern Lights ride - although we didn't see the lights up close we did spot them in the far distance. The visit to the local church was great, although some people were nervous, the service was lovely with carol singing and the history of the town was great to discover - everyone enjoyed it - well done Transun.
