I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
The husky dog sledding, the ice climb, the snowshoeing itself, being out in such a beautiful environment! And our companions too - the other four people in the party were lovely, and we all got on very well together - enough in common to bond yet different enough for good conversation!
In terms of the most exciting part, it has to be the ice climbing...not part of our original plans but I'm so glad it was suggested. Slow down and enjoy your stay in what really is an undiscovered part of the Alps. (more)Norma Sherratt

This was our first experience of a winter vacation and snow shoeing, although a challenge to experience the solitude of the high peaks and silent snow fields was amazing. (more)David Knapper
The snowshoe walks on the Alps and the stay at Chalet Savoy were the highlights of this vacation. The walks took us to the top of the world, literally. They were envigorating and the scenery was stunning. (more)Gabriel Decio
Seeing the towers of Canterbury Cathedral for the first time away in the distance - our goal was now in sight.
Take a decent camera.
Definitely minimal impact on the environment. Local publicans certainly benefited as well.
Excellent, good fun and very rewarding. (more)Ian Rigden

The overall experience was memorable; the scenery, the activity, the guide, the other participants and the 'rough' living. (more)Richard Wisentaner
The entire vacation was memorable & magical. Our guide, Jarno, was superb in every way, including cooking up the best soups over the lunch time fires. He was expert at interpreting animal & bird tracks in the snow & helped us understand the environment & the way of life in that part of Finland, now & in the past. (more)Dilys Harlow
