      Definitely not worth the money.
      We booked an Aurora Borealis hunt with Access Lapland, intending to use snowmobiles. Unfortunately, we were informed that the snowmobiles were not operational due to the cold weather, and the tour couldn't proceed as planned. Seeking alternatives, we discussed options at the office and were offered a car tour for that night instead. We also inquired about rescheduling the snowmobile tour for the following day, and initially, we were offered it at a 50% discount due to the inconvenience. However, when we sought clarification on the discount, we were informed that it was not applicable, and instead, we would have to pay an additional €37 per person. This reversal left us feeling confused and dissatisfied. Despite this setback, we opted for the car tour that evening. Unfortunately, the tour proved lackluster, with minimal engagement from the guide and no sightings of the Aurora Borealis. We felt it was not worth the expense, especially considering we could have had a similar experience at a lower cost by bus. After leaving the Access Lapland office, we discovered that other snowmobiling tour companies were still operating that night, raising questions about the quality of Access Lapland's equipment or operations. Despite the inconvenience caused by the malfunctioning snowmobiles, Access Lapland did not offer any compensation or alternative solutions. The inconsistency in the discount offered added to our frustration. When we contacted the office the next morning to discuss the snowmobile tour, we expressed our willingness to proceed if we could avail the initially offered 50% discount. However, this request was denied, prompting us to cancel the tour due to our disappointing experience the previous evening and the inconsistency in Access Lapland's offers. Overall, our experience with Access Lapland fell short of expectations, both in terms of service and value for money. We caution others to be wary when considering booking with this company, as our experience was marred by inconvenience and dissatisfaction without any meaningful resolution or compensation offered.

      Thrilling!!!
      We did the 6h snowmobile tour and had lunch at Ice Hotel with Leo and it was great!!! Leo taught us first how to drive the snowmobile and then we were driving in the forest and it was great!! He showed us wonderful places and answered all our questions about lapland life and nature. We could even see some special birds!! Lunch at the Ice Hotel was very tasty (pasta with salmon and Reindeer burger) and we could visit the hotel, magic made with ice!! Leo also helped us with some shopping and bookings we needed and meeting him was the best, so Finnish!!! We hope to see you again some day!! Isa and Juan.

      Good Snowmobile Ride
      The guide was nice, professional and patient. Only downside was that we could only go as fast as the slowest person in the group, and I wanted to drive faster, but otherwise very good.

      Awesome staff and activities!
      We participated in ice-karting and snowmobiling with Access Lapland. These were the best activities, we had so much fun! The staff were friendly and professional and went above and beyond to ensure the best experience for us. We had an awesome time and will definitely be back next time we're in Rovaniemi. I would thoroughly recommend both these activities and feel that any activities offered by this company would be well organised and fun. I'd give them 11 out of 10!!

      FUN!!!
      We did both the ice karting and snowmobiling safari and both of these activities were so fun. The staff were really great, they were helpful, caring, and professional. The activities were well planned and really, really FUN. Would highly recommend. If you are travelling to Rovaneimi, then these two activities are a must.

      An unforgettable experience in Rovaniemi!
      The ice karting activity was an incredibly fun and exciting experience and though we were new to it and experienced bumps along the way (crashing into the snow at turns etc.), the helpful assistants were always quick to aid us and ensure our safety. Despite the freezing cold conditions, we were able to remain warm with the attire that Access Lapland has provided which helped us enjoy the experience even better. During the snowmobile tour, our guide Leo was very kind and helpful. He made numerous stops to ensure we were comfortable and to give us time to take pictures with the beautiful scenery. We truly enjoyed this experience and we recommend all to participate in Access Lapland’s programs. We would like to thank Joe, Leo and the ice karting team for making our trip to Rovaniemi an even more memorable one!

      NOT RECOMMENDED: UNTRUSTY AND UNPROFESSIONAL
      We prebooked this activity for the evening of New Years Eve. A day before the due day, the agency wrote us to cancel the activity arguing bad conditions to drive the snowmobiles through the frozen lakes. They offered to reschedule the ice karting activity earlier or reimburse our payment. We were eager to maintain the booked time and just do the ice karting but they weren't. We talked to other people through our journey and no one had any problem with snowmobile driving conditions. Not even us that were able to do it with another agency. In my opinion, the truth is they offered an activity and regretted it later, probably because they did not have a high demand, so they decided to cancel instead. I feel this is an UNTRUSTY and UNPROFESSIONAL agency that I would NOT RECOMMEND to anyone as they give me no certainty. I have experienced they would cancel according to their needs and not their service to their clients.

      Great tour company
      Great tour company with lovely guide Dylan (driver) and a local finish guy (for the snow mobiling/ice fishing). The snow mobiling is easy to get the hang of and very enjoyable. It does get cold so wrap up warm. I get cold easily so I wore my coat under the overalls they provided. The ice fishing was great fun and something different to do. Finished off with Ice Karting which I thoroughly enjoyed. Dylan created an open fire which warmed us up nicely after. We ate lovely BBQ sausages which were so tasty but bring food if very hungry.

    We visited the go-kart track on Feb 11. It is one of the best attractions of Lapland. It was a delightful experience for those who prefer emotions with adrenaline. I want to thank the instructors and especially Janis - a true professional in his field.

    I and my son had great time. We get transferred from the office and get back. Karting cars are well maintained. You drive first 10 mins for warming, then 10 mins for race. Cars are monitored and all drivers are listed via computer for their drinvg times. As usual warm berry tea and cinnamon cookies are available during waiting. During cold time, it is COLD, really cold. Take care while you are driving, because while you drive faster, you feel COLDER!

    A great fun way to spend an hour in the snow. My first time Karting but will do it again. My only Criticism was there were only 2 staff members so if you got stuck it could take a couple of minutes to get going again.

    Friendly staff speaking French for one of them. 6 of us went karting on ice, unfortunately it snowed, we couldn't see anything behind the visors but the experience is worth doing. Loan of wetsuit, gloves and shuttle. On the other hand, contrary to other reviews we did not have the race sign, nor any race in fact.

    We can only recommend this activity!

    From start to finish, everyone was really nice, attentive, caring and funny!
    We were even able to go as a family when there were 6 of us.

    The place is magnificent and the karts work well.

    For information, we had -12 degrees, we had kept our thermal underwear and we added the wetsuits provided. We were slightly cold so we advise you to keep your fleece clothing underneath as well.

    It’s an activity to do! We highly recommend it!!
