Midnight Sun Hiking and Photography Trip in Korouoma Canyon

Midnight Sun Hiking and Photography Trip in Korouoma Canyon

By Sunny Safari
About
Korouoma canyon is millions of years old fracture valley in the bedrock. At the center of the valley, it forms a magnificent gorge that drops over 100 meters below its surrounding terrain. It is the main place for ice climbing in the winter but offers much beauty throughout all seasons. The natural phenomenon midnight sun will add to those already stunning views of Lappish landscapes the colors all night long. With its 5km trail, the hiking is easy and relaxing. Be on the lookout for wild animals and floral life! Those unique moments of sunset and sunrise while hiking in the canyon will be captured by our professional photographers. Before heading back to Rovaniemi, as a reward your guide will demonstrate how to set up a fire in the traditional Lappish way by using a flint and bark of fire and will prepare the light barbecue.

        Fun cold adventure
        This was a very nice experience. We didn’t get to see the northern lights, but the time we spend hunting was so much fun driving the snowmobiles! It was very cold but the overalls provided kept us as warm as possible. We had some tea and cookies as well. Definitely recommend it if you’re looking for some adrenaline and with some luck can also get to see the northern lights.

        Amazing experience
        This was amazing! Andres the tour guide knew exactly where to take us to have the chance to see the northern lights and we did! It's an incredible experience! We loved the attention, the information provided, everything was amazing. We strongly recommend this tour. Andres was on time to pick us up, explained the tour and then took us along the group to see the northern lights.

        Best experience in rovaniemi
        Andres and his wife are wonderful guides: they planned a complete tour full of the best experience everyone wants to do in Rovaniemi (reindeer, husky and snow mobile). They follow us in every step, taking photo of us and explaining us a lot of curiosity. They vary kind and helpful. Super Recommended!

        Bad company
        horrible experience , no chance to see the lights so ever , it was snowing ,(they should cancel ) the place we arrive had a lot light pollution and it was not even dark as they claim .then we gather around a fire with hot dogs ,along with other people. on the way back , our driver belongs to another country , not in Finland , the way he was driving , slip couple times and packed 6 people in a small van with no seat belts ,particular in the front ,that seat us (total 3 with driver) I don't recommend that company , collect all that money with no results .

        Not polite not fair
        Unfortunately it has been a very bad experience with the team of sunny safari. Although they knew it was cloudy they did not let us change the reservation for the days afterwards. There was actually still place but they said there was not ( while we could see on the calendar there was still free slot). They told us to call the day after to change the reservation but the day after they did not pick up the whole day. When they finally asnwered, they said it was too late to change the reservation while.there was still place on their calendar. Of course we came back earlier while we paid for 4h...Many tours advise u in advance or let u change the day in case of bad weather...so I would not choose them again!

        GREAT MEMORIES 🥰
        First of all, many thanks to our guide Luigi 🙏. We had a great time. We ate delicious food. Reindeer farming and the hospitality of its employees cannot be described but can be experienced. And then Amazing views when you catch them on a sled pulled by cute dogs.😍 And finally, the snow mobile experience was probably the most enjoyable time spent as a family. Thanks Luigi 🙏❤️

        Great tour and great guide
        Our guide Nadine was a brilliant person, very nice and cheerful. We went into a lake to take pictures and snow was up to knee high, she knelt down and move her body to push the snow away so we can stand there to take photos. She was concern that we might not see the northern light so she has been checking constantly. She was the first person to notice aurora has appeared and quickly inform all of us so we don’t miss anything. It was a lovely tour with a great guide.

        Wow so much fun!
        What a brilliant tour! The snowmobiles were the perfect way to see the northern lights which did not disappoint. Thanks to Sammy and Lucas for the hot berry drinks, great commentary and making our last night in Rovaniemi, Finland one to remember. Sunny Safari is an excellent choice!

        A good all round experience.
        Very enjoyable tour. We only had one time on which to go and we appreciate the honesty to the staff who told us the conditions that day where not ideal. Fortunately the conditions improved dramatically and we got to see the Lights. Thank you to Luigi for his enthusiasm and humour.

        Terrible and Unprofessional Tour, terrible service!
        We signed up for the Lakeside Aurora Paparazzi Photography tour with Sunny, and they initially were very communicative. We were picked up in town and after getting some others, went to their warehouse to give some people snowsuits. This is the point that the tour went down hill. We were all dressed and ready to go, when someone came over and told us that they forgot to pick up someone from another tour, and because of this, we had to wait with these other guests instead of departing on our own tour! We sat at the warehouse for 30 mins while the company went and got someone else... Finally after we can finally leave, i see that other friends of our are posting about seeing the aurora at a particular lake. I tell the guide about this, and give him the exact location. He tells us thats where we are going too... except it wasnt. the company gave hime a different address and we drove 40 mins to a location just to get out and be told we were in the wrong place! we then got back in the van and drove 30 mins back where we came from to go to a tourist pull over spot on a lake facing to the SOUTH!!! How are we supposed to see the northern lights when only looking to the south!?? It was abundantly obvious that this group only goes to two spots and never changes the routine, even if the lights arent there. THEN we find out that our guide doesnt even have a camera!!! we booked the PAPARAZZI PHOTOGRAPHY tour, but they didnt provide him with a camera!!! we then get back in the van and drive north back to a lake at the same spot we were before, to meet with another group so we can use their camera. I will say, even though we were scheduled to depart at this point, the guides ignored their corporate requests to go back and stayed an extra hour or two to hopefully see the auroras with us. We saw a haze through the clouds, but that was it. Sunny Safari completely blew our only chance to see them during our trip. When I went to the office to complain about the service and multiple delays, the people behind the desk told me that they would not do anything for us, and refused to give me the contact info for a manager/owner. They said that they were going to fire the guide, and nothing was their fault. It starting getting heated, when i decidced to leave and leave this review. I thought they might want to make it up to us for the terrible experience, but they clearluy do not care about the customer once they have your money.
