We spent 5 nights here over Christmas and it was the most wonderful family Christmas. Three generations ranging 12-82 and everyone had a brilliant time. The food was varied and delicious - something for everyone. The rooms were immaculate and warm - too warm if anything as it was unseasonably warm when we visited (-5/-6) and the staff were faultless.||The activities were so brilliantly organised. If you’ve booked before for your visit (highly recommend as they book up very fast) you’re given an itinerary telling you on which day each activity booked is scheduled for. Then there are two screens behind the activities reception desk outlining the activities for the day and family names assigned so you can see at a glance 24/48 hrs in advance where you need to be and at what time. Of course the desk is manned most of the day for queries. ||You’re kitted out with snow suits, boots and mittens on your first day and you keep these for your whole stay, returning when you finish your last activity. The suits come in a huge range of sizes. ||We did gentle snowshoeing, aurora snowmobile, aurora camp, reindeer farm, husky sleds and snowmobile adventure. I cannot recommend each of these enough. It was very cloudy over our whole trip so no chance of seeing the aurora - but it never mattered - the guides were so passionate, entertaining and knowledgeable that we never missed out.||It’s given us family memories for a lifetime - recommend to anyone and everyone.

It was a magical adventure holiday! Thank you to all the staff: the guides are passionate, helpful and kind.. the hotel staff are really good and the service too.|We loved the activities. Especially learning about the Sàmi culture.||The food is amazing! Healthy, generous and many options. Thank you chefs!||We stayed in 2 types of rooms: arctic cabin and Wilderness room. The first was luxury with a private sauna and the 2nd was also very adequate. I would be happy with either! Both are very warm and clean and welcoming.||We would recommend this holiday to everyone.||One or two ideas for tiny improvements - the child bed is not great in the wilderness room. ||We stayed when it was -20 every day.. we would recommend bringing extra ski clothes.. the hotel clothes are not enough for this temperature.||Thank you Wilderness Hotels! You have been great! ❄️💕|
