          Everything you wished for
          The guides, the cute reindeer, the hyperactive adorable doggos, the unexpected foxes, the hot drinks and sausages around a fire - everything was great :)

          Great!
          Great family run reindeer farm. Although the ride was short we did get to feed the reindeer! They also gave us so much information about reindeer and how they farm and protect them. It was so interesting.

          Best way to see Helsinki if you only have one day
          We just had one day in Helsinki before heading north. We wanted to make the best use of our time and we did with Olga as our guide. And some of our group had physical limitations so we didn’t want to walk for miles on the cobblestones. If you have more time and don’t mind wandering around, you can see the city on your own, but a guided tour is very efficient and it met our needs.

          Look for other offers
          I booked a Reindeer-Safari for our familiy. After the automatic confirmation response, a girl from the main office confirmed the tour with other (shorter) content. They did - after several times of asking - never tell me the place and time of the safari. In the end they cancelled the tour without asking me beforehand. This was then ok for me and I got the money back quite quickly. There are a lot of good offers for activities to book f.e. in Levi/Sirkka; us them.

          Loved this tour, and it holds a special place in my heart.
          This was a really fun experience, the staff was super friendly. I was well educated on all the animals and their daily life. I love knowing all animals are treated so well. We were about to feed the reindeer. The views with the huskies were amazing. We got to see individual huskies after ride and was truly a special experience. Pups had their names on cages and were easily identifable with photos to show! After both the farm and the park, we were offered hot drinks and snacks that were enjoyed in the comfortability of a cabin with a nice fire!

          Good equipment but better to enjoy more intimist experience
          snowmobiles and explanations are high quality and professional , but unfortunately no northern lights these days. The " typical sausage has not so interest since we were too many peoples and not as i expected. Then unfortunately we were around 25 drivers , some of them were very afraid and slow, and team took too much time to separate the groups.. but global is experience is quite good, since the snow was fantastic. but i' would recommend a small group experience and not a tourist cart...

          Picture Perfect Experience
          The reindeer and husky safari was amazing as was our guide Emma! A local with a lovely sense of humour! The reindeer park was picture perfect and although the ride is short it was fun. The husky park was near Santa’s Village and you can choose to end the tour here. We loved Batman, the Husky and the ride was great. Pick up and drop off from accom is great too.

          Joy and fun with the "Lapland Reindeer and Husky Safari from Levi"
          One month before the event, I booked the "Lapland Reindeer and Husky Safari from Levi" held by the Easy Travel through the Tripadvisor. It is easy to book the tour online. It is a small group tour of only two family, totally 6 persons. We had opted to be picked up at the Levi Suites Levi Gold, Torikuja 3, Sirkka, Levi, but our guide is also the driver messaged us to change the pick up point at the Zero Point Brand Store outside the Oy Levi Ski Resort. It was very cold, we found the pick up vehicle with difficult in the bad weather. Our guide was nice and helpful. He told us the career of the reindeer farmer and the rearing method of the reindeer. He also took photos for us. It was worth to joint this tour, it is the only one tour consist two activities (visit Reindeer Safari with Reindeer Sledge Ride and also visit Husky Safari with Husky Sledge Ride) found online.

          10/10 experience
          This experience was absolutely amazing! An incredible afternoon for family, friends or colleagues. The animal welfare for working dogs was impeccable, with a welcoming and immersive staff collective that was informative and friendly throughout the entire experience. Honestly, I couldn’t recommend a better place to experience husky rides, and to learn more about the culture surrounding it.

          Wonderful day Safari
          We had a great day with the Reindeer and Husky safari, our first guide Mario or Super Mario as she said to remember her by, was so helpful and pleasant. After our short reindeer ride we had a lovely cinnamon bun with hot berry juice beside a nice fire. Mario told us all about the reindeer and answered questions. We then went to the restaurant for lunch of salmon soup which was delicious after we had cake and coffee. The staff in the restaurant were very nice. After lunch we met another guide who was also very pleasant, took us on the husky safari. When this was finished we had another biscuit and hot juice, then got to pet the puppies. The whole experience lasted about four hours and is quite expensive, but a once in a lifetime experience, especially in the beautiful winter wonderland. You have to consider how much it is to pay all the staff involved also feeding and looking after the animals all year round.

        Absolutely great experience and very well organised. For us it was a long cherished dream come true.
        Well equipped with regards to clothing and a nice scenic route. Nice staff.
        After the tour they took plenty of time for explanations and meeting puppies. No rush at all.
        Only point for improvement is to supply a blanket for people in the sled, they will get cold.

        The landscape and the experience with the dogs was great BUT the guide's inhospitality ruined it (it looked like she was the boss, her colleagues seemed nice but they were not the ones animating the ride) :
        -she didn't smiled once and it seemed like all the guests were annoying her despite the exorbitant price of the excursion
        -she was yelling at us for no reason like we were turbulent little child
        -she separated the groups
        -she forbid the use of camera
        I highly recommend her to change her vocation, since she hates tourists and group management.
        This might avoid to ruined people's dream of riding with huskies...

        Great organisation and nice to share with Finnish staff. Most important for us : The dogs looked happy and well cared. The meal was really good (soup and sandwich, especially the cinnamon and cardamom bun !) We were lucky to visited the puppies .

        The tour itself was great. The tour guide and his team and Husky & CO were great and made the tour fantastic. What I didn't realise is that one adult per sledge is in charge of the Husky's which at 1st wasn't sure about. But I would def do this again as loved it and preferred it to just sitting in the sledge as keeps fun and keeps you warmer!
        I would not book through Viator though. We had a booking made almost a year before travel and went to pay just before we left for Lapland and they said payment refused and cancelled our entire booking without our consent. I could not then go back and rebook this online as stated fully booked. So I had to phone Viator to explain and rebook which cost me £165.00 plus I had to pay the new rate which was more expensive so in total I was around £300 out of pocket. I tried to claim a refund and they declined. This would have ruined our dream family holiday but I refused to let it.

        I really regretted doing this. The husky’s are kept chained to their dog houses all day excepting the tours and not happy. Dog sledding has only been recently imported to Finland and massively expanded for Tourism. Yes it’s very beautiful to travel through snow forests and quite fun but it leaves a bad taste. The Sami people are reindeer herders whose way of life and herding lands have been divided up and are under threat e.g from mining. I wish I’d put my money into a Sami run reindeer activity.

        Paid extra on top of the Santa's Lapland trip to visit the husky farm (not sure if this was the Safari) and have another sleigh ride. Slightly disappointed in meeting the husky puppy. One brought into the cabin where a coach load of people were waiting. Although the keeper came round the group to let you stroke and take photos it was a bit of a scramble. However the pupply was really fluffy and cute. Also got an insight into his future training as a working dog. Then out to the sleighs. Set out in small groups of four sleighs, each group with a leader on a skidoo. This made for a much more intimate experience than the day before when we had the Santa's trip activities. As we set it was just getting light (ish) and there was a golden glow through the forest. Really magical and so still, only the sound of the sledge crunching through the snow. Winding through the forest and then out on to a frozen lake to head back to the farm it was an experience not to be forgotten. Plenty of time to take photos of 'your' team and to stroke the dogs, who despite being very excitable were very friendly.
