We had three glorious days of cross country ski-ing in Finland, There were loads of tracks to follow , ranging from the beginner tracks to advanced. The tracks started very close to the Apartment so it was easy to get to them- no queuing!Cross coutry ski ing is really fun- but energetic!- and you can stop to admire all the lovely scenery whilst you whizz along The equipment hire was straightforward and efficient. Again , no queuing. There were lots of other facilities available if you wanted to do downhill skiing or snow boarding. Children of all ages / abilities were also catered for. We went self catering , lovely clean, well equipped apartment, very central excellent choice of foods in the local supermarket. We didn't eat out but there were lots of restaurants , cafe's etc. there. We mostly had good weather whilst we were there which enabled us to enjoy the fabulous scenery, clear air and being outdoors. Although short, our time in Finland left us feeling rested, relaxed , restored and ready to face our daily lives again. Who knows how we would have felt if we'd been there longer!

My daughter and I wanted a five day break in Finland in order to go cross country skiing. We were restricted on when we could go due to her university commitments and our budget.To be honest I didn't think it was going to be possible I can't fault Scandinavian Travel Ltd for their knowledge, attentiveness, efficiency and for tailoring our holiday to fit our requirements perfectly and within budget. They went out of their way to ensure we had what we wanted and made really thoughtful,sensible suggestions such as ordering some groceries to be available in our apartment following our very late arrival . Very welcome. Matt's local knowledge was invaluable and all the services they had organised happened smoothly. As soon as finances allow we will be booking another holiday with Ski Lapland. My only hesitation in recommending them is a worry that they will become too big and lose that personal touch- other than that I can't fault them.

Fantastic

This was our third SkiLapland holiday to Finland, and our second to Levi. As before the travel arrangements were smooth, we had all we needed at the airport and there was someone waiting for us to take us to the hotel despite a delay with our flight change at Helsinki. When this happened, Matt Nolan at SkiLapland was proactive in contacting us and sorting out the change in flights and the new transfer. All good. We had also changed our ski ...

This was our third SkiLapland holiday to Finland, and our second to Levi. As before the travel arrangements were smooth, we had all we needed at the airport and there was someone waiting for us to take us to the hotel despite a delay with our flight change at Helsinki. When this happened, Matt Nolan at SkiLapland was proactive in contacting us and sorting out the change in flights and the new transfer. All good. We had also changed our ski hire arrangements relatively late on and then had forgotten to print off what we needed to show the ski hire company. However this was easily sorted out too. Hotel apartment great, no hidden charges. Great experience. We didn't take any excursions this year - we did in previous years and they were great with personal service from Matt to make sure everything happened when it was supposed to and even organising individual tours and suggesting different things to try. Cant speak highly enough of SkiLapland. We only buy a package holiday when we ski and have relatively high expectations that things will run smoothly and these are always met.

Really responsive and helpful from initial enquiry to support in resort. Proactive, thinks ahead (got a call to remind us of a couple of things in advance, was ahead of the game when our transfer flight had to be changed due to inbound flight delays etc). Brilliant wouldn't use anyone else and recommend them to our friends which is always risky!
