Great experience
Nov 2021 • Couples
We booked a two hour snowmobile trip and it was worth every penny! It’s a great experience and our guide Mika was great. He told us about the places, made sure we were comfortable and was overall very nice. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with him! Really recommend this

Amazing experience in Snowmobile
Mar 2021
We decided to do the activity of Snowmobile to catch northern Lights. It was one of the best experiences of our lives! Due to corona te group was reduced and we had the opportunity to spend some great time surrounded by Finland's nature.
The activity was perfectly organized. The guide, Dominick came to pick us up to the hotel and we drove to the company's office to change clothes and boots and to pick up the necessary equiptment to carry out the activity. Then he explained the driving agreement and we went out to take the snowmobile.
Dominick taught us how to drive the snowmobile and then we began our journey. During the drive, we swoped turns to drive, so each one of us could drive. We liked that Dominick gave us a lot of freedom when organizing the tour, as he asked us how we felt more comfortable driving and how much time we would like to spend by the fire once we ate some snacks. During the barbacue, he explained a lot of things about northen lights, we also like that he knew a lot about the subject and we had the opportunity to hear some great stories about nothern lights and finnish culture. We were able to see some amazing northern lights as he took us to a great spot for wacthing them.
As a conclusion, it was a great experience and Dominick was very nice to us during the whole trip. We strongly recommend this activity!!

Wonderful first-time snowmobiling experience
Super fun time today!
We were a little nervous at first, but Sami was a great guide. He was very informative and made us feel safe and comfortable. During the ride, Sami also took many photos and videos for us. The scenery was absolutely wonderful! Riding the snowmobile was not difficult at all, even though it was bumpy at some point due to thin snow. The key here is to relax and just enjoy. Highly recommend!

Awful and extortionate
Dec 2019
Awful day. We arrived and got ready for our tour, and the guide told us the track might be a bit bumpy. My husband and I had never driven snowmobiles before but the other 3 men on our tour had a lot of experience. The track started off ok but quickly became difficult to manage as it was extremely bumpy, and the snowmobile was continuously jerking up and down. There were also several instances when the track crossed a river and dipped down low and there were holes in the track over the water. It wasn't long before my hands were continuously slipping off the handles (as a passenger) and I was terrified of being thrown off and injured. We stopped and the guide suggested I try driving. That was also extremely difficult due to the conditions and we crashed at one of the aforementioned rivers. The guide was long gone and the other tourist behind us stopped to help. I went back to being a passenger and pretty much had a continuous panic attack until lunch time due to being terrified (and I'm an adrenaline junkie!) At lunch we asked if we could finish the tour early as it had become impossible to hold onto the handles (my arms were like jelly at this point from holding on and my husband was having a hard time too). After already paying 400 euro for the tour we were told it would cost a further 150 euro to be collected early. We were appalled at this and said we did not agree to the price but the van came to get us anyway. When we arrived back at the office we were told we had to pay the extra 150 euro. We refused as we had not agreed to this and asked to see their terms and conditions. The written conditions displayed in the shop made no mention of a fee for returning early. After much back and forth and contacting the owner of the business, the manager managed to "find" an identical digital copy with the only difference being the added clause about the cancellation fee (we suspect he added this as he was "searching" but obviously can't prove this). The manager also said they can't control the conditions (duh) but all we wanted was to not pay extra for such an awful experience. They ended up calling the police on us and were extremely condescending throughout the entire discussion. The police said it was none of their business but we should probably just pay. It ruined the Rovaniemi leg of our honeymoon and was a horrible experience to have two days before Christmas.

Dear Sophie, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear your day with us did not live up to expectations. In December bumpy snowmobile tracks are something all of us need to deal with quite often, mainly due to the changing temperatures and high volume of snowmobilers on the tracks. Although at times these conditions can be more of a norm than an exception, the guide did well to give you a heads-up. The other three participants had purchased single-driving supplements – highly recommended for this tour in its description – making the ride smoother. Anyhow, we always adjust the speed of the tour to match the skills of the group and the conditions, making sure there's no need to drive faster than is safe. Our daily snowmobile programs are not that much about adrenaline but safe, accessible experiences led by professional guides. Even though keeping an eye on the group is naturally one of the main tasks of our guides, unfortunately there are short moments on each tour when having all the participants within line of sight is impossible. This is one of the reasons why instructions are given in the beginning about stopping safely and waiting for the guide. I am happy to hear the other tourists were showing proper snowmobiling spirit and stopped to help, and it did not take long for our guide to return and the tour to continue. All bridges we use on our tours are well maintained and safe to use. When discussing the situation during lunch the price of ending the tour prematurely was communicated clearly. The price also includes transporting the snowmobile back to the starting point, which requires a special vehicle. We also showed great flexibility by offering you the chance to take a taxi back to our office instead of using our transfer, which would have meant that we had had to cover transporting the snowmobile by ourselves. We also suggested joining the ice fishing part of the tour before returning. In the end our transfer was accepted and embarked by you. We apologise that it took a while to have the information about the fee available in writing – we will make sure our terms and conditions will be easily available in full. On the day of the activity there were hundreds of people driving through the same tracks, and we experience several days in a season with similar (and worse) conditions, but having to end a tour prematurely is exceptional. As there are costs involved, we unfortunately were not able to offer a free return service, although we flexed ourselves by offering the taxi solution much further than normally to keep you satisfied. We hope that in general you had an enjoyable holiday and are willing to visit Lapland again one day. Warm greetings from the whole Wild Nordic team!

We did the dog sledding last February and it was a very nice experience! These dogs are very well cared and you can tell that their owners/guides are totally devoted to them and love their animals.

The ride makes you smile while going through the woods and you will be surprised by the speed and strength of the huskies!

Thanks for the experience!

Honestly, we were very nervous.
But it was phenomenal and actually my best adventure in Rovaniemi. The thrill and buzz from riding the snow mobile was out of this world!
It is an absolute must for everyone.
Our guide, Samir was awesome! could not have asked for anyone better.

Snowmobiling, reindeer, and huskies
Feb 2020 • Friends
Definitely a lot of fun, snowmobile trail was a bit challenging with all the previous tracks. The animals, shops, and food were a treat. We booked last minute and the company was accommodating, professional, and very friendly. Picking us up and dropping us off at our
Hotel relieved a lot of hassle.
Would recommend.
