    Magical Lights

    Wow what an incredible couple of days! Absolutely full to the brim of activities, a fun group of people to share it with, a fantastic leader and delicious food

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Without a doubt it was seeing the Northern Lights when we were out at the wilderness cabin for the night. We all laid in the snow star-gazing for an hour before the lights put on a show for us - magical!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Darren was a fantastic leader - enthusiastic, passionate, knowledgeable and helpful

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    If you're a bit short on time but still want to experience everything Finland and the Arctic Circle has to offer, then book this trip, it's full of new experiences!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Excellent wintery weekend!

    I absolutely loved this weekend, it's non stop fun and adventure! From husky sledding, snowmobiling, relaxing in the sauna and seeing the northern lights, we covered every wintry activity going in Finnish Lapland!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    There were 3 main highlights of the trip for me, which were: 1. Seeing the Northern Lights for 2 nights on this 3 night trip! Our guide Darren told us that the aurora borealis had not been seen at all for the last month prior to our arrival. We were obviously very lucky as on our 2nd night, we went out on the snowmobiles and saw them. Wide green arcs spread out across the sky that changed shape and glowed brighter and fainter as we watched them, it was very exciting and we stayed out until 12.30 pm in minus 27 degrees celcius! We saw them again on our 3rd night at the wilderness lodge from the frozen lake. A beautiful sight that I will never forget. 2. Husky sledding - this was so much fun! Our guide was great and clearly very passionate about his dogs and making sure they are well cared for. The dogs are so excitable and have so much energy! 3. Relaxing in the sauna and then rolling about in the snow afterwards. This was great fun and very relaxing!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Do not walk away from the path during your time at the wilderness lodge. One did in our group and she ended up knee height in snow and the men in our group had to go and rescue her!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I would recommend anybody who would like to experience the arctic wilderness to book this weekend. I was just disappointed that I couldn't spend longer there, I will be back!

    Finland Northern Lights

    An exciting trip. If snow-steeped Lappish landscapes, huskies, reindeers and adrenaline-pumping activity appeals, then this is a great option for you. We were fortunate enough to gaze at the Northern Lights (magical!!) which will stay with me forever. With some more closer care and guidance re safety this would be an Excellent trip.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Watching the Northern Lights near the cabin by the frozen river. Husky ride comes in second.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    He was a good guide overall. He provided excellent advice for snowmobiling, warned everyone against drinking and his presentation on the Northern Lights was first rate. However, it has to be said, I was disappointed when I later learned of his response to being woken after the group heard me screaming for help outside our cabin in the wilderness on the second night. He mentioned, “oh, she'll be ok", and immediately went back to sleep. Did he not care that I might have been injured? I had walked along the wrong path to the cabin from the river and started sinking rapidly in snow. Although not his fault, I was extremely scared (my torch wasn't working) as the route I followed was unstable, metres high in snow in places. I sunk nearly up to my waist alone in the dark and screamed for what seemed like an eternity, while holding on to a tree, not far from the cabin, before eventually a lady went to brush her teeth and heard me. Then two men from the group came to rescue me. It was so dark I didn’t know what to do, but then again, even with a light, I wouldn’t have dared to move far in the snow… I was so relieved to have been found. I had been screaming for at least 30 minutes and didn't know whether I was going to freeze during the night or potentially drown. I think Exodus should make more effort to warn travellers in advance about basic safety trips which may be obvious to locals and Winter travellers but not necessarily so to others. For instance, the hazards of walking in snow around the cabin locations should have been made clearer and your company could do with sharing survival tips in the unlikely event of ending up alone after an accident etc. I subsequently learned that a snow cave could prevent you from freezing to death during the night and I’ll never forget this and the other tips shared by one of the men from our group who had been in the navy. It was -25 degrees Celsius outside. I could have died!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Absolutely essential - stick with your group. The wilderness can be treacherous. Make sure your torch works a few times before using it! Also, avoid keeping your gloves off for too long to avoid frostbite. Get camera-friendly ones instead. Have fun, just don't take your life for granted...

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The huskies were the best. I didn't want to leave them.

    Wonderful Adventure

    I took my 21 and 16 year old daughters on this trip in feb 2016 and what a fabulous adventure we had. Finland is truely beautiful in the snow and Exodus yet again know how to pack your time full of wonderful activities. We saw the amazing Northern lights 2 nights in a row and what a magical appearance they made however I purposefully booked this weekend in case the lights did a no show; you would have a wonderful time even if they didn't. Some things you need to know - It is cold v v cold (-30) however the equipment provided FOC is excellent quality and you'll have everything you need. - The trip isn't for the faint hearted driving a snow mobile across the wilderness with your daughter on the back took concentration however, leading the huskies was easy peasey and so amazing ... book it, you won't get better

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Sharing the wilderness and northern lights with my daughters to inspire the adventurers within them. However what made this trip is the choice of activities, venues and area Exodus chose for us to experience and the travellers in our group we shared the experience with (building the log fires for the sauna in our wilderness night cabin and jumping in the snow during our sauna was great fun) Thanks Exodus for yet another AWESOME adventure

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Darren worked hard to organise and provide all that was needed

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for a full on weekend and the cold weather

    Arctic Adventures

    Didn't think you could cram so much activity and fun into such a short period of time! A fantastic taster of a variety of Arctic activities and the chance to see the Northern Lights twice!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    When our group walked out onto the frozen lake next to the wilderness cabin and saw the aurora borealis for the second night running - especially as the lights had not been in view for the previous month.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    A very knowledgeable guide who looked after us well and made sure we got the very best out of our Arctic weekend. The whole team at Harriniva was good, but especially the dog sled leader we had; his enthusiasm was boundless and we all learned lots.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you take good thermal gear to wear under the excellent kit they provide. Several pairs of socks (that are not too tight) are essential. Take your own head torch - they was a limited supply from the guide. Expect to be busy - it was non-stop, but that made it all the more special.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We were very lucky to have seen the Northern Lights - they hadn't been seen for the previous month - and our guide ensured that we were in the best position to make the most of our luck; he even arranged for a professional photographer (who's photos of the Aurora are second to none) to help us with camera settings.
