Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We did the 3 hour snowmobile wilderness safari and had a fantastic time. It was just the two of us so almost like a private tour and we were lucky. Marco guided us and was super friendly and kind. Pyha safaris have all the kit to borrow to keep you warm, boots, balaclava, helmet etc etc. the snowmobiling is very fun and we stopped half way, made a fire and cooked sausage on it. This was very enjoyable, overall, a fun way to spend your cash and your time. Highly recommended.

Ice karting is a must.. fast and fun.
Staff are always welcoming with a friendly smile. Dog sledding is good
Dogs are very well looked after and can't wait to work. Very well organized.

We went on a 4hr trip down the river, we had one canoe and our guides another.
The scenery was magical, and quite different from anything else we'd seen here so far.
Paddling wasn't hard at all though it took us a while to keep straight! We had useful advice from our guides who were also knowledgeable about local flora and fauna

We stopped for lunch in a hut which is maintained and stocked with firewood by the municipality.

Highly recommended

My daughters and I left my husband and son skiing and booked a snowmobile safari. What a fantastic experience it was and well worth the money. It's not cheap at 85 euros each for me and my eldest daughter (15) and 60 euros for my youngest (10) but once on the safari it's just one of those experiences that you'll always remember. I drove a snowmobile with one of my girls on the back and the other went on the back of the guide's snowmobile (we swapped on the way back of course!). It was a bit scary driving the snowmobile at first but we soon got into it and our guide stopped a few times to make sure we were all ok. The best bit of the whole trip was stopping at the lavvu which is a traditional hut on the side of the frozen lake. We were able to go and walk on the lake and take pictures while our guide started a fire and got out the sausages and hot drink which was lovely. We were able to cook the sausages ourselves over the fire before heading back.

We travelled with Crystal and the only negative I have is that it would have been good to have prices and know how to book experiences before we went as we would have loved to do a husky experience but because of the time of year we travelled (over New Year) everything had been booked for months. I'm sure we will be going back to Pyha in the future so we will definitely try to book things up direct before we get there.

We booked a 2 hour afternoon snowmobile safari for 4 people. First we put on suitable clothes (provided by the company). We were really lucky because it was like a private tour since nobody joined to our group. So we had more time to discuss with our great guide, Elias. He told us nice stories, grilled us sausages and boiled coffee by an open fire. We enjoyed every minute of this tour. We, girls were a bit afraid to drive the snowmobile, but after our guide gave us a detailed guidance, and we found a safe, short route, we gave it a try and I am happy that we didn't miss the chance to drive a snowmobile! We saw wonderful nature, enjoyed peaceful hours isolated from everything. Thanks a lot for these moments, lifelong experience :)

We booked a 2.5 hour snowmobile safari for €85 per person, based on two people sharing one snowmobile. The tour was very well organised and professional, our guide was very knowledgeable. The tour included a stop for a snack by a fire next to a frozen lake.
I would recommend this tour although I would say that it felt very short. If you can afford one of the longer options I would go for that. We felt the time went very quickly.

Hi, Thank you for your review! I'm sorry that the tour felt too short but nice to hear that you had a good time. The duration of our safaris is an estimate, so now when the tracks were in very good condition and the drivers were good, it might go a bit faster. Also if the group is small, everything takes less time. Thanks! Best Regards, Tommi / Pyhä Safaris

This is a small family run business. I was traveling alone with two boys and had booked two activities with them as well as an airport transfer and warm clothes for the duration of our stay in Pyha. They were very helpful people and both activities were great.

Hi, You came to our company and couldn't afford our snowmobiling tours and got angry about it and made a scene. You said we had promised you a snowmobile and a sleigh on a discount price, which is false because we don't give any discounts on the phone. Because you had promised your children a snowmobiling trip, we even gave you a 50 % discount of the trip. You went with your children with a safari group and our guide. I am really surprised and disappointed of your review, because you didn't say anything after the trip. Tommi / Pyhä Safaris
