Nu boyfriend and I originally booked the northern lights tour, but because of bad weather this was unfortunately cancelled. We weren’t able to get a refund, which we were disappointed by at first. Especially since we had a very tight schedule and weren’t sure we would be able to book a tour another day.. however, the company was very flexible and arranged the snowmobile trip for us. The tour was amazing! We had a guide all to ourself - no other people on the tour! We had so much fun, snowmobiling on Lake Inari, and our guide was so nice!! We are very pleased and had a wonderful day on the Lake. Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I had booked the ice fishing tour with Ivalo Safaris and we had the best time of our lives. We were picked up from our accommodation and then driven to the Ivalo Safari office. There we were given warm overall, snow boots, gloves and helmets, to prepare us for the sledge ride. This was followed by a short drive to Lake Inari from where we were taken into the frozen lake for the activity. Our guide Arto was super helpful and fun. He taught us how to drill a hole in the frozen lake, set a bait and wait to catch a fish. After fishing for a while, Arto took us back to a Teepee where he had prepared a scrumptious lunch over the fire. We ate delicious smoked reindeer soup, bread, sausages and cake! Arto also took us to their farm to meet reindeers and feed them lichen. Overall it was a wonderful experience and Arto was extremely accommodating of all requirements. We would strongly recommend this activity to anyone and everyone who wants to experience the Lappish wilderness in the midst of serenity and tranquility. It's also a great way to learn a lot about the popular Finnish activity of ice fishing. Don't forget to book it through Ivalo Safari and do ask for Arto!

My husband and I had the best day trying ice fishing. The day was well paced, not rushed. Arto taught us what we needed to know and let us go ahead with it. Lunch in the teepee was a lovely experience. The sled ride was mesmerising. Highly recommend - thanks Ivalo Safaris. Above and beyond.

We had booked the Aurora-Hunting Safari quiet well ahead. Two days before the date we were contacted by Ivalo Safari to let us know about the bad weather expected. We could change the date for better weather - very flexible, thank you! We had a great guide (Anssi), very attrentif and knowledgeable and could learn a lot about Finland. Great Aurora Sights and enough time for pictures! Thank you dear Ivalo Safari Team for the great trip and your flexibility. We will definitely book you again.
