We were in Rovaniemi in the middle of the January and it was really cold at the time. It was down to -33 degrees. We were in doubt wether to book the tour or not. We decided to book and it was the best decision ever. Our guide Tiina was extremely friendly and felxible. Since the it was so cold that the snwomobiles didn’t start in the morning so we rode them in the afternoon and used a car in the morning to visit the reindeer and husky farms. The local farm guides were also friendly and gave us a lot of insights about the animals. Especially I liked the reindeer guide Arttu. For lunch we were offeres traditional lappish salmon soup which was delicious and really warmed us up in the cold day. We recommend to book the tour. There’s no cold weather, it’s all about the right clothing *wink wink*
Honestly amazing. They looked after us really well, snowmobiling so much fun best ones I've ever been on, the husky ride was so unique and fun never done anything like it! It was so nice of our tour guide to ask if our hands were cold and he gave us a good pair of some spare gloves he had. What an outstanding day one I'll never forget And also appreciated the warm juice, really warmed me up
Superb experience. The guide was great, and started by showing us a beautiful snowy spot before taking us to the reindeer farm. We also had a very nice lunch (which we didn't think would count). Very nice experience with the huskies! Only downside: the time in the village of Santa Claus was in our opinion a bit long, and at the end we were turning a bit in circles.
We had an amazing trip, one could think that due to the lack of tourists they would provide less to save on costs but it actually felt like a VIP personal trip! They have put in the effort for just the 2 of us as they would for a large group. Couldn't recommend more.
The activities were fun and the guides were nice. It was great !
