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.

A great experience thanks to the guides who were always there to help. Our tours were accompanied by William mainly and I have only great things to say about him. We learned so many things about Finland, Lapland and Sami culture thanks to the organised cultural visits, and had a blast trying all the activities : snowmobile, husky sleigh, reindeer farm, arctic games, nordic walking, jumping into very cold water after the sauna sessions and so on. So a huge thank you to all the guides who were with us this week and I recommend to all of you readers if you're hesitating: don't. Go for it! The experience is amazing and the guide made it at least 9.7 times better ;).

I personally loved everything I tried, so I recommend trying everything if you can.

So thank you again to the whole team, the guides: Melissa, Yannick, Alex (I'm probably forgetting some, I'm sorry) and obviously William for sharing your tips, knowledge, time, smiles and jokes with all of us.

My sister n I booked 2 tours...the skidoo sled tour...Alex took us out, he was very welcoming and attentive and shared lots of local knowledge
Because it was just 2 of us we were in open sled with big woolley leg blankets...
The sled can be awkward to get into especially if you are wearing one of the provided snowsuits and boots which often don't fit and make moving an effort.
The tour is a great way to sit back and take some great photos or video...goes for about 90 min..
We thought it was enjoyable and worth the cost

The husky safari was really nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were very last minute looking for a husky ride, Club Nord did everything they could to arrange the safari for us. I would really recommend them. We will come back next time!

When we were staying at Hotel Ivalo, the hotel was quite full with a French tour group so we joined them for a couple of excursions organised by the excellent on-site Club Nord.
This company, and staff, was also excellent arranging excursions suitable for us and in our short 3 day time frame. A special mention of Sirkku (with whom I was communicating by email almost daily prior to departure!) and Clement our guide for the Reindeer Farm and Sami Museum visit (a great day excursion we thoroughly recommend).
Thank you to Sirkku for suggesting the itinerary for us and sorting out some dietary issues, and special thanks to Clement for his super knowledgeable information on the day trip, especially at the museum, and all his English interpreting for us.
We also experienced the scary, at first, but totally amazing husky sledge ride. As seniors, my husband was the driver as I didn't think I would manage to have control...but, what a truly once in a lifetime experience. Wonderful scenery and lovely, lively friendly dogs which, at the end of the ride when calmer, we could make a fuss of and they enjoyed the attention!
Club Nord have thermal suits and boots that you collect free of charge for all excursions and also have an equipment store where we were able to borrow snowshoes to explore the surrounding area and walk across the frozen lake and into the woods opposite.
Everyone involved was helpful – thank you again!

We enjoyed each and every experience that we had with Club Nord. All the guides were really nice and kind, the material was in perfect conditions and I would like to highlight their predisposition to adapt to our needs and schedules. But above all, the best of our trip was meeting Carlos, our Spanish guide. He explained us everything we wanted to know about Lapland in a really enjoyable way and made our trip something we will never forget. Gracias Carlos!

We had a couple of excellent excursions with Club Nord:
- Ice Fishing by Snow Mobile - the exciting part of this was snow mobile driving... you travel along the river up to Lake Ivalo. the ice fishing was interesting but it was the wrong time of year so unlikely to yield any results.. however the chance to see the scenery and nature and experience a snow mobile ride was amazing! very cold so wrap up... suggest you where your own thick clothing underneath Club Nord's provided thermal suit
- morning husky ride - thoroughly enjoyable and we were lucky to experience a sunny winter morning. the huskies are loud and a little scary at first however you soon get to realize that they are actually very friendly and like human contact. the scenery was amazing once again and although this was only a short 1 hour trip it was thoroughly enjoyable. You get to drive your own husky sleigh. Again, wrap up warm!

I have joined the Northern Lights trip with Köpi!
He is very professional! We have enjoyed the Northern Lights in 2 locations!
You don't need to worry if you don't have a professional camera! Köpi will send back his photos for you! And you can just enjoy the Northern Lights! Thanks, Köpi!

Club Nord have been an amazing part of our stay at hotel Ivalo. All the members of staff were very friendly and spoke fantastic English. The lady at reception was very helpful and was always genuinely interested to hear how we got on with the activities.
We did the husky safari and the snow mobiles and all staff for both activities were amazing. The husky safari was so much fun, the dogs were so excited to get going and it was a great experience to both be a passenger and adriver.
Snow mobiles were also super fun (albeit more so for my boyfriend than for me) and having 2hrs to explore the surroundings was a great amount of time. The instructor made everyone feel at ease and was great at keeping an eye on us all
Both activities were an interesting way to see more of the beautiful landscape!

Club Nord also provide snow shoes, ice skates, cross country skis, toboggans and warm clothing free of charge which we really appreciated as this holiday certainly wasn't cheap and it's not like you can save money by having a lazy one at the beach :P the staff were more than happy to show us how to use the equipment and make tracks for us to follow. I really felt that they were happy to help at any time.

Thank you club Nord!
