"We had a wonderful time even though we were unsuccessful in our two evening attempts to see the northern lights. We really enjoyed Finland, the landscape and the people. The flights went well. Our accommodation at Saariselka in the Nilikuru cabin was great. Minna, thank you for recommending the Glo hotel in Helsinki. It is in a brilliant location, as you were obviously aware, and added greatly to our enjoyment of Helsinki. The young ladies at reception in the Hotel Glo were friendly and helpful throughout. We had a couple of special occasions whilst we were away and if anyone is looking for such a recommendation we would happily recommend Siberia restaurant in Saariselka and Aino in Helsinki. Not the cheapest but good value nonetheless for a special occasion. Just a couple of comments. It would be helpful if the information book at Nilikuru could include a copy of the ski bus timetable and a map of Saariselka. We obtained both by asking but it would be good if they could be in the cabin on arrival. The hotel Glo did not have tea, coffee or a kettle in the double room. Although it was provided on request it would create a much better impression if it could be there on arrival, together with a decent supply of tea bags and milk. This is a problem which is common in many hotels and I just don’t understand it. Hope these comments help. Thank you for helping us have a great holiday."
