Our first trip to Helsinki with two teenage boys and we didn't know what to do. They didn't want museums etc. so I found Kontikifinland on the internet and I'm so glad I did! They are a husband and wife team and very helpful. Sarah informed me there was no snow so we couldn't do the Snow Fun Day. Very disappointed, but she emailed me a couple of days before we were due to fly saying they'd had snow and we could book the day after all. I'm so pleased we did. The communication between us was professional and friendly. We had snow boots delivered to the hotel the day before we arrived and a text welcoming us to Finland. We met Tomas in reception and as soon as we met we knew we'd made a right decision. The day was well organised, informal and fun. We even met his family on the slopes, which was lovely. Nice to meet Sarah who had been really helpful in her emails. Tomas added a little detour on the way back for us and took us to an Archipalego Island, which was simply beautiful - he didn't need to do that as our time with him was up and he didn't charge extra for it. He even offered for us to keep the boots for the next day, which was really kind. All in all I would highly recommend a trip with this family run company.

"Day in the Archipelago"
"Just did a 5 hour tour of the Finland Archipelago with Tomas.
Swimming in the Baltic , some local food cooked over open fire and fish soup at an iconic seaside cafe and to experience the Archipelago the way the locals do was exceptional. Tomas , with his knowledge, passion and friendliness, made the trip one of the highlights of our 5 week Scandivanian and Finland holiday.

"Husky safari, Helsinki, Porvoo & Day of the frozen Archipelago"
We've had a great trip! We've done a lot, too: skiing, husky safari, museums, city tour, Porvoo, skating on the city ice rink and on the frozen Baltic Sea! Hotel Haven has been a real treat. Very enjoyable."
