Well organised, lovely log cabin, super tour guide, no problems at airports, snow, activities, Santa, souvenir CD of our trip - arrived Feb. Santa's elves on train.
Food at local hotel a little disappointing, Santa Park - commercialised, but only stayed for 1 hour en route to airport.
We went on 'Arctic express' 2 day tour staying in Luosto in a log cabin which was lovely - comfy beds, really cosy with a 20 min walk to hotel. Our guide was friendly with good english and we didn't encounter any problems. Enjoyed activities and met Santa, which was great. It was fairly mild, but cold to us - we took lots of layers,good quality ski gloves and socks. Hired overgarments and boots, were more than adequate. Would recommend Canterbury, but not necessarily the 'Arctic Express' - not our first choice, as our original trip was cancelled and we were offered this instead. Expensive, but glad we went.
