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.

We did the aurora hunting by car with guide Juhani!! It was really good and i totally recomend it!! Juhani is a reaaly nice guy and he drove us around to find the best spot to see the northenr lights! It was a pretty cloudy night, so it was not easy to find that place, but Juhani was checking the forecast all the time and we could find a great spot and it was awesome!

We had much fun during the whole day. Small group and great guides. Juhani was just amazing, he told as many things and with his easy-going attitude he made everything so cool. Great Finnish chocolate, hike, tea, toboggans, lunch, and great cups! Was a perfect day.

Ossi, the guide of the tour, was very knowledgeable and professional. He was passionate about his job and more than happy to share his experience on hiking, trekking, ice water swimming, extreme sports, etc. The hiking route was not difficult and the scenery was just fantastic. Highly recommended when you’re in Ivalo.

This route is one of the must experience trips with fatbike in Saariselkä. Its not the easiest one; there is two lake crossing point and big hill to clime up but its definetly worht it! Even this was my first time with fatbike I feel that this was one of a kind experience to explore. There is one nice fireplace stop by the two beautiful bond and stream. And one of the most important I got many helpfull tips from my pro and friendly guide Ossi about bike and hiking😊. I highly recommend🤩!

I did the Otsamo hike above Inari. Ossi is very nice and trustful. The trail is fairly easy and the view is amazing. I highly recommend it.

I did the backraft trip on 6 different lakes and it was such a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it. It was very peaceful. The grilled mashmallows on the wood fire was such a special treat. Ossi is a wonderful guide.

I spent an awesome and relaxing day packrafting in Ivalo. We crossed many small lakes by packrafts and hiked in the forest. We got a break on a campfire.
The places were so beautiful and I lost all my stress in the nature.
Packrafting was easy and all the equipments were quite new and worked well. The guides were very kind and helpfull and the whole trip was well planned. I would love to go again!

A lovely fatbike ride in the Saariselkä fjell area. The day was turning into night and sun was setting down.. the scenery was amazing! Also the guide was very nice and pro, I got a nice experience safelyand good tips for trekking. After the ride, we grilled sausages in open fire in the complete darkness. I highly recommend!🤩
