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.

After a conference in Tampere I went canoeing with Pekka. Great trip with goof food and even better company!

Thanks for your review! Your stay hare couldn't have been at a better time for us. Pekka also thoroughly enjoyed your company and I also got to see you briefly on your way to Tampere-Pirkkala airport. Which, I have to say, is a smooth experience in itself, as you said so. Hope to see you. And maybe some friends along sometime in the future. We have a lot to offer. Also in the winter time. Br, Pekkas son Tapio

Terrible irresponsibility from HIT. Ski binding was insufficient and it came away during a down hill. I fell and broke my hand. After this I had to walk with the skies for 4 kilometres back to base. Once I returned and told what happened HIT employee just laughed that 'guess you went a little too fast'. No apologies were given from his behalf.

Later I tried to contact the owner without any luck. I'm disgusted about their way of handling things (well, actually by not handling).

By no means do not ever rent skies from this company. I have notified the importer that this renter doesn't provide ski equipment with adequate safety.

If you for some unfortunate reason got yourself hurt from whatever malfunction with rental equipment, don't waste your time reasoning with these people.

Took a xc skiing lesson with Pekka. Very easy to communicate with them and they were very flexible with scheduling this lesson right before Christmas break. I could test some of the gear they had for rent during my lesson and got some valuable tips from my instructor that really served me well for the race I was training for. Although conditions weren’t ideal for xc skiing that day we made the most of the time and at the end of the lesson I got a nice hot chocolate from the cafe in the shop. It was really good customer service and the location is very convenient, besides the xc tracks.

Thank you for your most valuable and informative feedback. Pekka had true pleasure skiing with you. And judging from your words the lesson was beneficial for you. Hope you did well in the competition, that you trained for, and met your own goals.

Tuire, our red-headed girl liked having you as customers. The weather on your day of visit to us was really awesome for Autumn time. As you thought, there should be more people enjoying it on the waters also. It is good that you got to experience it. Cheers!

We were 3 looking for a place to enjoy a beautiful day on a lake in Tampere, and found Hiking Travel Hit. We took 2 kayaks (one for 2 persons, one for 1) for an hour on the lake and it was so nice, very relaxing and enjoyable.
The person who assisted us (don't know her name) was extremely nice and helpful. She equipped us with everything we needed, explained in detail how to use the kayak, how to steer etc., and just made the experience a great one. Thank you guys at Hiking Travel Hit!

Your words mean quite a lot to us. Tiina, who served you thought you were really nice and hearing about this review put a smile on her face. Hopefully, you can come here again in the Winter, as I heard this was maybe your plan. We have really nice activities then also. On the forefront, nordic ice skating.

Thank you. It was our pleasure to serve you. Although I have to correct that your guide was Pekka. I, Tapio was in charge of the rental shop for that day. After the tour Pekka complimented you on your speed and good energy on the tour. Way to go! This forms a good basis for future tours. Guided or alone. For self-supported tours remember our rental services. Cheers and hope to see you soon! Tapio, Hit

Thanks Jim for your kind words. Finland is the country of lakes and Näsijärvi ("our lake") is one of its treasures. Cheers!
