Hello 50 Degrees North, Just a note to say Thankyou for booking our recent trip to Finland, Norway and Denmark. We had a great time. We particularly enjoyed our timing as we arrived in Helsinki 1 April ( i.e Spring time), but flew to Ivalo where it was still winter and great for snow. We enjoyed the 4 hr husky dogsled ride as we drove the sleds with the dogs ourselves and that was good. If we had known more and had more time there it would have we could have gone cross country skiing. It may be worth while mentioning this option to future clients. We also found that the man at the husky farm ran cross country guided husky sled trips over several days. That would also be a fun trip for some people. I'd be keen to do that if I was ever back there in winter. Our king crab excursion in Kirkenes was well worthwhile. The frozen fjord trip and the taste of those crabs was excellent. I was not expecting much of this event, but it was well worth it. The trip on the Hurtigruten ferry starting in Kirkenes was great . The "Norway in a Nutshell" section was good but probably not as spectacular after the seeing the coast on the ferry trip. All the hotels you booked were excellent and close to trains etc for transfers. All in all we had a great time . Thank you for organizing the trip to give us a taste of this amazing part of the world." Jeff & Ruth
