    We had an amazing trip. Finland is a magical place and its impossible not to love the location and stunning scenery. We were lucky enough to see the aurora borealis several nights. Uuno was a fantastic guide, our bus driver was lovely too. One of my favourite moments of the trip was Uuno playing us traditional Saami music in the bus while we watched the beautiful landscape passing by our windows...it really is a breathtaking place. And listening to his stories about the sauna and Finnish culture. If I had one comment for improvement, I'd like to learn more about Finnish culture through music and stories on the trip, because I found it so interesting! The activities were a little expensive but worth the money, especially husky sledding and arctic swimming in Norway. The trip was mainly university students and even though we were a few years older than them it was heaps of fun, we had a great time sledding down the mountain with our cabin mates. I'd go back if Timetravels did a summer tour! Thanks so much Uuno, we'll never forget the experience we had with you. From your kiwi friends Caitlin and Sam :) x

    I went on the Lapland adventure from 11/24-11/30. It was a magical experience. Our cabins are spacious and include a sauna and kitchen. The activities keep you busy. Snowshoeing was my favorite as it challenges you. Thanks to our guide Uuno for being responsive and fun! Will recommend to others!

    I never knew what magic meant, Till to Lapland with TimeTravels i went. We started with Santa Claus town, Where some negotiating went down. Saariselkä then welcomed us all, With its winter beauty and snowfall. The guides energy was contagious, and the activities absolutely outrageous ! we embraced the cold and the snow, As Uuno encouraged us to go Go go! Cross-country country skiing gave us some views Which we later tackled with our snow shoes. With laughter and fun all the way, I will still have bruises come May. The husky's made us weak at the knees, and the reindeer pulled us along with ease. the Saumi folk were all to kind It was so great I wish I could rewind. We went off to Norway for the scenes, The arctic swimming was met with screams! The northern lights kept us up all night Never have I seen such magic made by light. The most beautiful place I have ever seen, and it was great that our guide was so keen! Lapland has really stolen my heart, TimeTravels thanks for playing your part!

    It was a fun, well planned trip. My only complaint is that I felt like we spent so much time on the bus. I would have liked for the actual activities to be longer. For example, we only actually cross country skied for about an hour. I saw that you could rent skis for the whole day for 15 euros, yet we paid more than double that to ski for one hour. A little more time at the activities would have been nice.

    What an amazing trip to Lapland so many great memories! Made some great friends and fell in love with the place :) Team leader was excellent and friendly. Loved every minute from watching the Northern lights during the snow mobile safari to drunken Finnish karaoke!!! Wish I could go back again, will definitely book with Timetravels Ltd again.

    We had a wonderful time in Saariselkä! You get a top-notch accommodation with everything you need. Nice people everywhere and a really entertaining tour guide! The trip to the arctic ocean in Norway was my favorite activity. Driving with a snowmobile and visiting reindeers was an amazing experience aswell. Also we could see the northern lights almost every night. I can only recommend this great trip! :)

    Eating Spareribs in Näätämö, the forecourt to the end of the world was only one thing we did on this trip everyone should have on his or her bucket list! Auroras almost every day, hardcore snowshoeing, driving through the forest with snowmobiles and a free solar eclipse on the last day made this a very memorable experience. Thanks for this neatly organized trip and assigning probably the best tour guide ever to our group!

    The bus trip to Saariselkä of the 19th of February 2015 was, surely, the best trip I ever done. My dream came true thanks to Timetravels and definitely I will come back one day ! My most amazing activities were the Ocean Artic Tour in Bugoynes, the Snow Shoes Track (what a surprise thanks to our tour guide!) and the Husky Safary. I had the chance to see Santa, reeinders, northernlights and the typical awesome landscapes of Lapland. And above all this during this trip I Was so happy to learm about Sami culture. For sure this trip is incredible !
