An unforgettable experience, the landscapes are sublime and our guide Mike was great, we had a lot of fun! He adapts the experience according to each person with different descent proposals: sliding, walking, etc. depending on what you want to do, but also we were able to make additional stops in the canyon and take the time to have fun in the snow. , to go up to see the waterfalls more closely or even to take lots of photo stops (he didn't rush us at all like other groups we met). At the meal level we even had the right to extra sausages and bread, it was great! Regarding the outfits they are available if you do not have the necessary (wetsuit and boots). I only have one thing to say, yes it is expensive but well worth it, the experience would not have been the same if we had done it alone!

Omg, the nature can’t be explained by words. Even the pictures we took can’t explain it, it was like a fairytale. Our guide Santi was the best! He took time to explain everything in all details, and we learned so much about the nature we walk through. We was a group of 7 in age 33-58, and many of us took the “slide” rute when it was possible. My mom had a back operation for 2 months a ago, and even she could walk the whole way. But this was possible because our guide Santi was so kind to take care of her, and guide the steps. She got special shoes and stocks to help her. If the guide recommends you to change to there’s outfits, then do it. We didn’t freeze and everything was comfortable.

Fantastic experience. We were very fortunate to have amazing weather with a beautiful sunrise and clear skies from the look-out point at the top of the hill, plus there was a lot of fresh snow from the night before that made it extra fun to walk with the snowshoes. We were group of about 18 people with 2 guides. The guides were very friendly, they let us stay a bit longer at the look-out point given the great weather, and they took great care of the entire group. I'd highly recommend this activity.

Very Nice tour. we had so much fun and the place is just a dream. The guide was super nice and knowledgeable. he provided us information about the place, the different type of trees, animals etc. We had a BBQ lunch and we roasted the sausages ourselves. highly recommended!!! thanks Wild about Lapland.

The hiking was so beautiful, the Frozen waterfall are amazing, and the guide Barbara was very very very nice she is so happy and good.
