I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends!
Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN!
Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas
Excellent, I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves wilderness, culture, the landscape, interesting people, sailing, fishing, visiting a part of the world with great beauty, yet harshness, dramatic scenery, art (optional!) and getting away from our crowded world for a brief moment of paradise in a different climate.

We had traditional saunas, hot-tubs, tried all the local foods, mostly prepared by our guide. We went walking, crab fishing on a restored traditional fishing boat, saw sea eagles, went to several museums learning about sami culture and the German occupation... I could go on... and even time to just sit and take it all in!
Most memorable was the endless views and complete quiet and relaxation. The sea eagles and SWARMS of puffins round Bird island. Charles' soups. (more)John Loder
