Generally, we are very happy with our Northern Lights holiday and particularly enjoyed the guided walk, photographic evening and sledging with the Huskies. We were blessed with good weather and The Northern Lights were very active which was marvellous. The Mountain Lodge suited us very well and the standard of the food is certainly impressive. The staff were also excellent in every respect and my only comments are that the rooms in the lodge are certainly pretty small, particularly when full of Arctic gear as well as two people and luggage. Also, as a very small person, I found the Arctic gear daunting both to wear and to get on and off. Things would have been helped by having shorter length trousers and smaller gloves which I'm sure must come in sizes for teens which would have been more user friendly. I certainly wasn't cold though, so no complaints there! On a purely personal level, the Ice Hotel left us cold (sorry) though we spoke to several people who were paying to stay there that night and looking forward to it. I can only wonder why. I was also somewhat underwhelmed by the night trip to the Ice Station which was nothing like I'd imagined from the description and being invited to lie on the snow on a reindeer skin when we declined to go on the walk ( we'd already been on the guided one that morning) didn't seem much of a plan while we waited for the diners to finish their meal. The cable car may have the distinction of being the oldest in Europe, but I think you should point out that it's open and possibly not for persons of a nervous disposition. I have to say I was very glad it was dark! Although I was slightly apprehensive that this holiday would be considerably out of my comfort zone, I found that I enjoyed the activities and ambience far more than I was anticipating. The Mountain Lodge is cosy but well arranged for socialising or finding a quiet corner and we were most impressed by the catering and staff. John hates hotels but was very comfortable there which is quite an accolade from him. The trip was easy to arrange as was directly contacting Weekend a la Carte with any queries which always gets my vote. Thank you for good service and a holiday to remember. I have passed your details on several times already.
