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.

Despite not being able to see the Northern Lights with the bare eye, we had a fantastic tour! Our guide, Juhani, took us to a frozen lake where we could observe the clear night sky and even see the Milky Way. We were able to capture the Northern Lights there with our camera. Juhani provided us with a lot of interesting information about the Northern Lights and always helped us set our camera settings correctly. We would book this tour again anytime.

A really informative and fun experience! We learned a lot about the reindeer and it was a surprise to see how different all the reindeer were in terms of character. The reindeer that was pulling our sleight was very enthusiastic (we went a lot faster than I thought we would!) and had a fun personality. The snack we had afterwards was also tasty and gave us the opportunity to speak to the staff a but more about their experiences with the reindeer.

We had a wonderful experience with Ryan and Juhani. We were in Ryan's car and he gave us a thorough explanation of the science behind the auroras. We saw the lights almost as soon as we came to their private area near a frozen lake. They wasted no time in setting up the photography equipment and took pictures to our hearts' content. Yuhani grilled amazing sausages!
Earlier in the week, we'd taken the same trip with Sarah. While we didn't see the lights on that one because of cloud cover, she made all the effort andher passion was evident.
Overall, great professionals and a good experience! Also love that the company provides the necessary shoes and overalls.

Booked this tour a day in advance when I walked into their office downtown. Friendly guy who took my booking and our tour guide Oren was amazing. He helped with our skis and during the cross country skiing he made sure we were all having fun. I thought it would be hard but it was not too strenuous, you go at your own pace.

The bbq and hot blueberry juice at the end of the ski was really enjoyable. Oren explained about the Finnish language, culture & showed us how to start a fire using the dry birchwood and bark. He even prepared vegan sausages (which was not expected) & a couple of people in our group was actually vegetarian/vegans. If you want to melt marshmallows pls ask in advance cos they prepare some for the kids!

Highly recommend this day time activity as it’s about a 3 hour tour and really enjoyable being out in nature and exploring the Lapland country side. Thank you!

The people organising the tour were great! Good communication, quick setup with gear, hot drinks and snacks. Our guide was very friendly, tried to coordinate with other people out driving, to try and find the best spots for us. We were lucky and saw the Aurora in 2 different locations. I would definitely recommend them!

Rovaniemi, Finland was absolutely wonderful in February. I would recommend using Rovaniemi, specifically Santa Claus Village (Arctic Circle) as your hub. We stayed in the cottages which were spacious and very nice. Everyone in Rovaniemi knows where Santa Claus Village is located. Some of the activities we enjoyed were half day experience at a local reindeer farm in Lapland, eating dinner in an igloo/riding snow scooters on a frozen lake, and eating dinner at the ArticSnow Hotel and Glass Igloos/Restaurant, which was an absolutely amazing experience. We stayed in a glass/heated igloo (Santa's Hotel Aurora) in Luosto (ski village), spectacular! If you're lucky you will see the Northern Lights. Excellent vantage point. We hired a driver to get us from Luosto to Rovaniemi. It was about an 1 1/2 hour ride. The airport is about 5 minutes from Santa Claus Village. Be sure and wear a good pair of boots with good traction.

My decision to choose this agency was driven by the reviews — most of them of Oren. However, we had no luck and the tour guy assigned showed no interest nor knowledge about the northern lights. He was nice but he never explained anything about the lights (which is expected). We went to a couple of places and after seeing the auroras (maybe two times) he took us back to Rovaniemi. The experience did not meet the expectations and I truly believe that the person you pick for this job must be passionate and knowledgeable — I would not recommend this tour.

Ryan was so professional and nice. He served us well like explaining everything and tried his best to catch the northern lights for us.
