We spent our Honeymoon at the Jeris Hotel in March 2011, we has the most amazing week at this resort. I urge everyone to visit Finland once in your life,the scenery is fantastic and the people are so friendly, they can't do enough for you. Everyone said oh Finland is so expensive, i don't agree, if you drink yes it is but generally it's not. The Cost of food and souverneirs is no more expensive than the UK.
On your visit 'must do's are Northern Lights snowmobile safari, husky dog safari, visit some of the local towns such as Munio and Levi. Local bus service to Munio is 5.60 Euro's each, a taxi is about 33.00 Euro's. Levi is one of the main ski resorts and has more choice of shops bars etc, Postbus is 16.00 Euro's each taxi is 63.00 Euro's.
We upgraded to a cabin well worth doing, no Tesco or Sainsbury's in Finland you have Kmarket or Smarket but choice is good well worth the experience :)
Jeris Hotel food is excellent be brave and try the food, good choice at Breakfast and evening meal.
The staff where fantastic good English and couldn't do enough for us, try the Sauna and other spa pool other activities available. The cabins were really nice and cosy with everything you need, apart from large bath towels (be sure to take your own), and sadly devoid of a double bed, (two singles pushed together with double linen). but other than this the cabin was idyllic!
We went with Activities Abroad, we can't heap enough praise on the team thanks Steph for all the advice, good when the people you are dealing with have actually been to the resort.
Learn a few words in Finnish the local people really appreciate your efforts, the Finnish people are really friendly and helpful and always speak English, but a few Finnish words go a long way, and when conversing with the Finns, knowledge of their country and culture is very respected. We reccommend that you learn the words Hyva - Please, and Kiitos - Thankyou, and the one that was important to us, as honeymooners, Raakastan Sinua - I Love you.
Finally Finland has made such an impression on us we are thinking of emigrating there in the future, we will be visiting Helsinki next year to get a feel for Finnish life in the big city.
I do hope you all find the above useful, Finland really is something else, we would recommend it to anybody!
