          Finnish hospitality
          Great experience with Tapio, our guide. He explained how to fish and gave us information about history and geography regarding the wonderful scenario around. We enjoyed a very traditional lunch in a typical teepee, having also the opportunity to see and feed the reindeers in the farm.

          Great experience
          Our guide, Piia, was incredibly friendly, cheerful, and attentive. I opted to pay extra for the snowmobile ride, and since it was my first time on one, she constantly checked on me while pulling a sleigh with her own snowmobile. Piia led us to a stunning location for ice fishing, and unsurprisingly, she was the only one who managed to catch a fish. On our return journey, she also made a stop to capture individual group photos. I would recommend both the tour and the company.

          Northern lights with Tina
          5/5 Great experience with Tina and her husband. We only had one night in Lapland. We enjoyed the snowmobile sleigh, the indoors campfire, the warm Blueberry juice provided with food, and luckily we saw the Aurora last minute. Every promise was met. Thank you.

          Fantastic!
          The tour was great! We started at the office. There we were given an explanation of what we were going to do and what we could wear. Then we had about a 10 minute drive to where the snowmobiles were located. There we were given an explanation of how the snowmobiles work and we were able to test drive them. We had a fantastic, helpful and nice guide who told us a lot about the area, about his family and about the family business. He answered all questions with great patience. I contacted them on 1st Christmas Day and received an answer almost immediately. The link I received via Booking.com did not work and was subsequently sent to me via the app. This so that we could record the ride for Tuesday, 2nd Christmas Day! Fantastic! Lunch in the teepee tent was also great; sausages and grandmother's homemade soup with bread. We ate all this around the campfire. Then it was time to feed the reindeer David and Rambo. We also received some explanation about this. Then unfortunately it was time to go back. We thought this ride was quite expensive, but definitely worth it!

          Aurora hunting at the Inari lake
          We enjoyed so much with this nice family. The night was so cloudy, but they made it and we saw a weak aurora in the middle of the Insti lake. We had a very nice dinner with sausages and delicious salmon soup.

          Scenic fishing
          My wife and I decided to go icefishing during our trip and it was a pleasant experience. Tina took us, along with three others, by snowmobile to a scenic part of the lake where we drilled our holes and dropped our lines. We probably fished for around 1.5 hours and the group caught a total of two fish. We then went back to a teepee on Tina’s island where we are a reindeer and potatoes soup and sausage. One person on our tour was vegetarian so they accommodated him with a different type of soup. There were also a couple of reindeer there that we were able to feed. It was a lot of fun and I’m happy we actually caught some fish!

          Deeper to the Wilderness
          Excellent experiment. We couldn’t see the northern light with naked eyes due to heave clouds and light snow. Otherwise the whole package was enjoyable. The guide was super nice.

          Very good tour!
          Very good tour! The couple picked us up at the hotel in Ivalo. We got warm clothes and went with a small bus to the lake. There we went on a sledge pulled by snow mobile and had a ride on the lake. Beautiful to see the Northern Light around us! (Kp 3) . After that we went to a small island in the tipi and had a lovely warm dinner( also vegetable option). There were 2 rendeers as well . Lovely to see them around . Thank you!

          Our guide Tina was very friendly, dinner was great. Salmon soup was the best soup ever! It was nice to sit in teepee by warm fire and drink hot berryjuice 😊 Weather was bit cloudy, but we did see small Northern lights from the island 🤩

          Amazing! Must do!
          Amazing. Cold, but amazing! We didn’t see the lights, but any dissatisfaction left us because of the kind host. This family owned and run business kitted us out well and brought us to a tepee. This campfire warmed tepee provided a great atmosphere and the hosts cooking was delicious Finnish food. We were allowed to take photos on the sled/snowmobile and they all turned out great. Highly recommend.

          Great Trip to the lake
          it was a really great trip on the lake. the fishing was fun even though we didn't catch anything. The silence on the lake unbelievable. Luckily the clothes were very warm and the -18 degrees weren't a problem. Afterwards we had lunch at the camp fire in the tipi tent. You could warm up with warm berry juice and delicious food. the soup was really tasty. We would definitely do the tour again

          Absolutely Wonderful and Magic!!!
          An amazing experience. Running with snowmobile on the Inari Frozen Lake in a total safe condition is wonderful. Incredible landscapes. The fishing experience beautiful and the lunch in a Sami Tent warm and delicious. All the organization with hotel pick up, warm clothes, info given by the guide was perfect. I truly appreciated every single minute of the experience. I truly suggest everyone to try it!!

        Our guide Tina was so friendly, our family loved the tour!
        We were lucky to see the Northern lights, and there were reindeers in the island we visited. Dinner was very good, even our children did like the delicious salmon soup. Highly recommended!

        Everything was taken care of. The pick-up, warm clothes, food, return to hotels. We did manage to see lots of Aurora, and the giides even changed the timing plan as we noticed Aurora appearing, so they stopped and let us enjoy the Northern light and take photos so that we don't miss even a second of it. When they were gone, the guides took us to the tent where there was fire, warm food and drinks and cute raindeers. Thanks for the experience! We highly recommend the tour.

        From my personal experience I recommend to plan at least for 3 nights to hunt aurora, so that in case of snow or clouds you still get 1-2 nights to re-schedule or get an extra tour.

        It was the best tour from our Finland Trip. We visited the lake Inari with Mr.Arto from Ivalo Safaris. Throughout the Safari we had a beautiful experience. For our Dinner we asked for a special vegetarian meal and it was delicious. The dessert prepared by Grandma was the best dessert we had in Finland. About the northern light, yes we were able to spot😊. Mr Arto made sure we are properly dressed in order to be safe from cold. He was patient, well mannered and told us about the lake and it’s importance. We thank you Mr. Arto and Ivalo Safaris for giving us such an amazing experience. Respect from India.

        We were staying in Saariselkä, and wanted to book a tour to see Auroras, this tour was a great choice! There were even reindeers in the island where we had dinner, and we could feed them. We saw the Northern light both in the lake and in the island, it was so beautifull!

        What a wonderful experience!
        Everything was well organised, communication and the excursion went very well.
        We spotted the Northern Lights, even if only for a short time.
        Very nice ride on the sled (train) behind the snowmobile.
        The food was super tasty and Tina and her husband are very hospitable.

        Certainly do!

        Unfortunately it was cloudy that evening with light snowfall, so we didn't see any northern lights. Nevertheless, it was a lovely evening with a sleigh ride behind the snowmobile.

        Well organized safari, welcome and support by very pleasant staff, very friendly and attentive guide. The observation of the Northern Lights is obviously random (we were able to observe a moderately active one that evening) but the nighttime atmosphere on the lake is magical in any case.

        Definitely recommended! We had a fantastic evening under the guidance of Mika. The wind chill was -30 this evening. Thanks to the outfit, which we had to wear over our own clothes, it was quite bearable. The guide's grandmother provided (among other things) a delicious salmon soup that we ate in a kota by the fire. We saw the Northern Lights!
