We are back after having an amazing time a holiday of a lifetime!
My favourite activity was snow shoe walking I loved it, it was hard and tiring, but I loved it because I was in control unlike skiing or snowmobiling ha!
We were certainly taken out of our comfort zone! But had the most amazing time!
John's favourite was the snowmobiles he had the time of his life, I on the other hand was scared to death! But we survived (Thanks to Marten our guide who will not forget us in a hurry ha!) and we have tales to dine out on for a very long time ha!
We enjoyed everything our guides Marten and Philippe were amazing and made you feel safe whilst taking you outside your comfort zone; they were very patient and supportive.
Marco was a mine of information with a good sense of humour. Christophe scared me to death at first but when we stopped to have lunch and started to talk he was fine and made me laugh. (I apologise if I have spelt any names wrong?)
I was dreading the food as we had been led to believe it would all be reindeer (I prefer my reindeer running free in the snow ha!) but I was pleasantly surprised there was something every day that I enjoyed and I had not asked for a special menu at all.
So our emergency supplies came back home with us!
I would like to recommend if you go to take hand/feet warmers as a must they are a god send, we did not know you could get feet warmers and one day our feet were freezing and it spoiled an otherwise perfect day!
We met some brilliant people from all over Liverpool, Ireland, London, Australia, Holland and more. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in an apartment with a log fire; the homely accommodation is basic but more than adequate. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt comfortable.
Overall this has been the best holiday we have ever had, the most amazing experience and to top it all on our first evening there we saw the AURORA IN FULL GLORY!! It was fantastic absolutely unbelievable and beautiful. We saw it again three more times not quite as spectacular as the first one but still amazing to witness!
I would certainly recommend this holiday to anyone and everyone whatever your age!
I could go on and on but the best thing to do would be to go out there and try it yourself!
