We Stayed in the Chalet Waskkooli, Saariselka (6 adults, 4 children) on Esprit's 3 day, 2 night package 30 Nov - 2 Dec 2007. The whole experience was absolutely brilliant, all the Esprit reps were friendly, happy and always encouraging the children to fully enjoy the activities available. Our chalet host did us proud, she admitted she was nervous, but did a fab job on keeping us well fed, fully informed and also managed to ensure there was plenty of wine in the fridge! The clothes supplied by the company were fully up to the job of keeping us warm and the activities planned kept the 3 seven and 1 eight year old fully occupied for the whole time.
Only one slight gripe, the check in on the return journey took nearly two hours, only two check in desks open and all the coaches arrived at the same time. The check in system was manual so complete carnage in the departure area! If its always that slow at least stagger the arrival of the coaches over a 90 minute period!
I would thoroughly recommend this once in a lifetime trip for any family and if you can get 8-10 of you together, the Waskooli chalet should be high on your potential places to stay. Well done Esprit.
