Season: 07 Jan 2024 – 02 Apr 2024
Welcome to Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland and the Santa’s official home!
Lapland is the perfect place to relax and at the same time live exciting moments by trying out various activities such as snowmobiling, reindeer safaris or dog sledding.
A stay in Lapland will remain engraved in your memories for a long time. Located on the Arctic Circle, this small town is perfect for a holiday alone or with a family and offers a wide range of first- class services to visitors.
best moment of the trip? Interaction with locals and learning about culture and history of the place and people. It makes the trip more meaningful and motivates me to want to go back to Sarawak to learn more.
- Drivers/ guides were pretty much punctual most of the time (max 10mins wait) and this is something I appreciate a lot. They are experienced and able to answer our questions to clarify any doubts.
- Best moments: To ascent to the summit and take in the breathtaking views with my 2 sons.’
- Everything is good and we truly enjoyed the experience a lot.
- The briefing notes were sufficient. As long as your local partner is punctual and knowledgeable, some of the questions can only be cleared when we are there with them.
Had used X-Trekkers 3 other times before & had been happy with them, so repeating custom.
Best moment: Whole trip because of group dynamics & good weather. Admittedly these didn’t have much to do with X-Trekkers but they provided good platform for our group.
The logistics for the trip was well arranged.
The guides took good care of us. As this is my second trip to MK, I know what to expect, so safety is not a concern. My one comment is that if we were to hike in heavy rains, the guides could have briefed us on precautions to take, such as hot water flask, carrying headlamp, whistle, etc in case of mishaps.
Best moment: To arrive back at Timpohon gate! This is the highlight, not the summit as descending is a major task for my bad knees.
Very detailed briefing notes.
