Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

I rented 2 snowmobiles and all needed gear for our family of four for 24 hour package. I signed the papers. Great intro. Nice service. I tried my luck and asked the great guy serving us how strict is the 24 hours of our rental time. He said that we can return the snowmobiles 24+8 hours after we are starting the riding. Our family was happy for this turn of events. Owner or boss called me 24+3 hours after we started. He said we should have been back at 24 hrs. I explained. And I told we are about 3 hours away. Well, we took the gear back at 24 + 7.5 hrs. Owner/boss demanded me to pay 8 hrs extra (minus 20% to give me a favour). I tried to explain my point of view and my expectations, and he focused on the signed agreement and how he lost a customer who had wanted one of our two snowmobiles. Summary: Snowmobile experience and service was great. My earlier experiences at this place have been great. This time, I just become disappointed for handling the misunderstanding of rental time/cost/promise when I ended up paying 350 euro for something extra I thought I was promised for free (and I wanted to close the issue for good before leaving).

My snowboard was fixed while I did grocery shopping in the nearby store. Very friendly, efficient and professional work. I can highly recommend!

We used Sport House during out recent ski holiday to Ruka - decided on the 3 hour guided snowmobile safari (glad we had a guide - came across lots of people whilst we were out who stopped our guide to ask for directions having just hired the machines and headed off themselves!!). It was our first time on snowmobiles as our children have always been too young for us to do it on previous ski holidays - it's not a cheap activity but we absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend it but worth paying the extra to have a guide to save time trying to find out where you need to go and so see more during the trip.

We had 5 machines between us and one member of our party had a bit of an accident (it was the fault of the rider not the equipment) which required them to visit the local Drs surgery in Ruka resulting in x-rays, a splint applied and pain killers given all of which was covered by the insurance provided as part of the rental charge by Sport House (Mika couldn't have been more helpful - he gave us all the necessary information and insisted we went to check it out with the Dr).

We rented skiing gear and later went back for snowmobiles. Miko is the chatting type and will give you nice tips on where/when to go and what to do around Ruka - the advice alone can be worth the visit!

Good gear, and we were told that if after skiing we felt we needed more advanced skis we were welcome to come in and choose something else. Cheaper than the stores close to the slopes too.

Big selection of snowmobiles and provided waterproof map, gloves, helmet, overalls and phone number in case we got lost - it is Lapland after all. Felt like an adventure, go rent a snowmobile and upgrade your vacation!

If you have a car, I'd recommend you to rent your gear in this shop, which is located close to the S-market and ABC- and Neste -petrol stations. They offer very good personal service and offer rates some 30 per cent lower thant the competiotors by the slopes. They offer gear for skiing (all sorts), skii-doos and activities, too.
