50th Birthday Holiday to Lapland

Levin Iglut Glass Igloos & Snow Hotel

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday to Finland for my 50th birthday celebration. The entire trip from start to finish was perfect, our excursions were fantastic, our accommodation at the snow village in a snow suite and also at Levin iglut igloos was unbelievable and all because of the services of Mags and Jules at travel with Jules. If I had a question, no matter how small, they responded quickly. They really made my dream a reality and I can’t thank them enough.

Thank you so much, my 50th Birthday trip was unforgettable! From start to finish, everything ran smoothly, the flights, transfers, accommodation and excursions were just perfect. The snow village was just amazing, wasn’t the best nights sleep (but I was expecting that anyway!) it was a once in a lifetime experience that I wanted to try.

The restaurant food was superb, the breakfast was great and the ice/snow art was unbelievable and we met some other lovely guests as well. We had plenty of time to explore and the weather was great too, just sunny and so pretty, the snow was like someone had poured glitter all over it it was just stunning!

The husky ride was brilliant, very well arranged and more than enough time to enjoy the scenery and the dogs. It was good to know that the dogs were well looked after even after they were retired from pulling.

The glass igloos were just what I wanted, they were warm, comfortable, the resort was intimate and quiet, we had one in a lovely location with unobstructed views, they were perfect, the resort was not too big which is just what I wanted, something small, not too over commercial or packed in with hundreds of people. It really was one of the most lovely places we had stayed ever! 

We walked into Levi, which took us a good 2 hours, but it was a lovely sunny day and we saw some beautiful scenery. The snow mobile safari was brilliant, we had a good three hour excursion and the guide was really helpful.

All the guides on the excursions, collected us from the igloos and drove us to the place the tours started from and made us feel safe and comfortable, I would highly recommend this company. There was no rushing, the tours were a good length of time and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We did catch a glimpse of the northern lights! Unfortunately the evenings were a bit cloudy, but I woke at 4 am in the igloo on the last night and they were just about visible through thin cloud for a good half an hour but we knew it would not be guaranteed, I’m just happy we saw them albeit ever so slightly.

We are looking forward to booking another Scandinavian trip in the future, it’s really given us a taste of something totally different to do and made us want to plan more exciting adventures!
