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.

It was fantastic experience for us to see not only Nothern Lights but also the movement, due to the company and the guide.
Even though our apply was only the day, they arranged the tour quickly, and the guide, Nico, he was full of warm hospitality to try to show us Nothern Lights.
If you think whether you are not sure whether to go or not, you should join the tour.
The experience of the guide increases the probability of seeing the Northern Lights!!

We had a great time with our guide Max, who took us to the lake close to Sariselka and explained everything about ice fishing. We could practise to drill the hole and try our luck to cath the fish. We had fun and found it interesting experience. Max is very friendly, easy going and informative. Hot drinks and cookies are provided and in case of cold the wood was also available to make a fire. Recommended.

This 2-hour husky safari was a very good experience. The guides were very flexible to arrange the sleds according to our (poor!) level in order to allow us to enjoy the tour and to give us a great experience. Taking care of the dogs after the tour was also a lot of fun, and learning about the dogs from those passionate guides was very interesting. Good location also, with wonderful landscapes.

We booked the 6 hours aurora trip and were lucky to be with Ivan. He contacted us before pick up and came at our hotel. The minibus was comfortable.
For the hunt, Ivan used multiple apps and was really looking for them, he didn’t just take us to his usual spots like other organism would do.
We have been really lucky and saw beautiful auroras ! Ivan even offered to take photos of us and sent all of them the day after, we’re really grateful for that.
During the tour, we got offered hot drinks and biscuits to warm us up.

Overall, we totally recommend Arctic Timetravels, it was a magical moment for us to experience the northern lights dancing in the sky!

Absolutely amazing from start to finish, picked up from our accommodation in Saariselkä driven 40 mins through beautiful wilderness with snow topped trees arrived at husky kennels.
Carefully explained how to mush and use the break.
This is a lot harder than it seems but once you got the hang of it, it became easier.
We went on then a 10km ride of our lives, the huskies are so strong and pull you from the offset, hold on tight.
The ride is beautiful and we were so lucky with the weather, it was sunny, -13 so not too cold I could take my goggles off and enjoy the ride and film it.
Afterwards a lot of care and attention into the dogs and they were set free to run around us and play for a while then whilst they were kennelled we then went to the cosy little yurt to warm up with hot berry juice and a talk about the huskies and their history.
A lovely transfer back to Saarislelka with a special stop at the top of the fell (ski slopes) for the best sunset photo
Could not thank artic time travel enough for today it’s been a highlight and a memory we will cherish for ever
Thank you x x

Dear Ivan,

Thank you so much for being an amazing aurora hunting guide. Your optimism, even when the weather wasn't great, made all the difference!! . The hot juice, cookies, and extra stops to get more photos made the aurora lights experience unforgettable. Your knowledge of Saariselka is impressive, and we'll happily recommend you to others.

Finding Arctic Timetravels online was by chance. Here are some photos from my iPhone, and thanks a bunch for taking cute couple pics of us!

Cheers,
Surbhi Gupta and Pranjal Kumar (Feb 14, 2024)

The snowshoe tour was a great experience. Dorota is dedicated guide. She put together an excellent tour and introduced us to the scenic beauty of Lapland. We started from the top of Kaunispää and then walked through the snow-covered forest. It was a real winter wonderland. Dorota also had lots of explanations for us. We thoroughly enjoyed this trekking tour. We can recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the nature of Lapland up close.

We requested guide Ivan for our tour having read lots of positive reviews. He did not disappoint! Whilst it is totally out of his control, he went out of his way, constantly checking forecasts and road maps to get us to the best spots at the right time. We saw some faint northern lights in 2 different spots and despite being past our curfew, he tried one final spot further north where luck was on our side. He did this on his own time as we were gone for a total of 5 hours so we are extremely grateful 😇

Totally recommend Ivan and Arctic Time Travels for giving you the best chance to see this natural phenomenon

We had a wonderful hunt with super friendly and professional guide Ivan. I would definitely recommend Arctic Timetravels, if you are hoping to see the nordic lights and also wish to get an enjoyable hunting experience!

We booked the Premium Aurora Hunt (6 hours) and we are still so happy about this amazing experience! Our tourguide Ivan went above and beyond to bring us to the best/most scenic spots to see the Northern Lights and we were so lucky to see them multiple times in one night. Ivan was constantly checking the forecast and also the road maps to bring us to the right place at the right time. He shoveled us a way to a frozen lake and even on our way home he made another stop (although the booked time was already over) just so we could see the lights dancing one more time. Thank you Ivan for making this tour unforgettable - we would definitely book again when we come back to Saariselkä.
