* A traveler said: "The tour was really very good, both guides Laura and Timmo were absolutely professional and paid much attention to every participant. That was very interesting experience both for adults and children 11 and 6 yrs. Of course, it depends on children, if they are not afraid of dark forest, and they like to seat by fireplace and listen to the legends and stories. What I would recommend for children, just to have more fun - to give them headlamp and make them guess the steps in the snow :"
