This 4 night break over Xmas has shot to no.1 in our most magical and memorable holidays.
Margareta, Ingemar, Louise, Patric, Emanuel and Katarina are the best hosts you could possible wish for and ask that you treat their hotel as home, we have never been anywhere so warm and welcoming. The hotel is gorgeous, lots of nooks and crannies to explore and relax in. Big open fires with comfy sofas.
Yes the bedrooms are small but you only slept in them !
Blimey I have forgotten to mention the activities --- well what can I say !!
AMAZING from start to finish, we booked as a package with The Aurora Zone (excellent service from the moment we started looking at what we wanted to do) and had 3 full days of activities, snow shoes, cross country skiing, husky sledging, snow mobiles and ice fishing. After every days activities were finished the outdoor wood sauna and jacuzzi would be waiting for us to relax. Then off out again In The evenings northern light hunting in snow mobile pulled sledges he he !
What was our favourite activity ! Well that's easy - ALL OF THEM , simply because we have never experienced anything like it before and probably never will again. Soooo wanted to stay for longer !
Unluckily we did not see the northern lights but hey we had a fab time with a fantastic group of people.
The only downside for us was that we were a bit unlucky with the flights out due to a 5 hour connection but that was due to Finnairs schedule. It meant that we missed one of the scrumptious evening meals, although we were provided with a very delicious soup and bread supper on arrival at midnight.
Altogether a holiday never to be forgotten and thank you to Margareta, Ingemar, family and extended family for making it such a magical time for us.
Would love to return one day !
