The location and activities provided were great - we had a great day out on a reindeer sleigh ride and were impressed with the majestic scenery and beauty - sky was pale pink and blue - snow covered trees and country, quiet and peaceful - just perfect. All with our individual sleighs and reindeers. We were well rugged up with extra clothes provided by the tour company, so we didnt feel cold despite minus 10 degree temperatures. We were impressed with the length of the ride - about an hour and a half.
The pool and sauna area were very good - lots to do and left feeling thoroughly relaxed.
One warning - the gentle massages offered as part of the pampering treatments were not so gentle - as advertised in the brochure - would not have them again., as we were sore for a couple of days afterwards. The facial was good though.
Breakfasts had a good variety of food - the evening buffet not so crash hot - but meals in Rakka Ravintola alternative a la carte were much better
The hotel had lots of families with young children - and as 3 adults - parents and an adult child - the buffet dining area was often rather noisy - so after one attempt here then chose to dine elsewhere for the evenings
Overall we enjoyed the experience and will look back on it mainly for the location and the reindeer ride experience.
