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.

Polar star travel is the best agent for local trips, accomodation, information and everything you need, to have extreme fun during your stay in Levi. We staid in a traditional finnish block house with fireplace and sauna, it was super cozy. We did several trips and activities with polar star everything was always on time, very well oragnized and lots of fun. I have to mention ANDREW our guide for the activities, he is an exeptionel guy who has incredible knowledge about nature, finnland, and all the things we did together. He is funny, helpfull and always positiv and made the activities to an unforgetable experiance! Thank you andrew.
Cheers fab

We are 2 young families with one year old children. We had amazing time on reindeer sleigh ride, tour around the premises, saw the smoke sauna and saami museum with our guide's Heidi well prepared presentation. Our babies and us too had the breathtaking experience of feeding young reindeers. On the way to Sammun tupa we met members of the family running the farm and had a nice chit-chat. Inside the cafeteria we had hot beverages and the best korvapuusti in Finland, not to mention the friendly fury companions walking around.
Definitely recommended activity.

Booked cross country skiing which was excellent. Neither myself or wife had tried before and our guide/ instructor showed tremendous amounts of patience and understanding. Although I spent a lot of time on the floor it was a very fun and rewarding experience.

We also had the same guide for snow shoeing in the evening although this was booked with Ingham’s rather than done independently. Another fantastic first time experience snow shoeing on the mountain and viewing the northern lights an added bonus.

Would have booked more trips with this company. Unfortunately due to covid it’s easier to book a package of trips with the tour operator prior to coming, which I don’t usually do as companies like Polar travel are much better and usually more competitive on price.

Booked day trip to Rovaniemi guided by Ruxandra from Polar Star Travel.
Essentially this was a visit to the Santa Claus Village, but as my wife & myself wanted an alternative experience, Ruxandra organised a private excursion to the sights of nearby Rovaniemi just for us.
She took us to see the the design classics of the town library, amazing church which she arranged to be opened especially for us, the modern art gallery, & concert hall, before we had free time at the famous Arktikum museum of the Arctic.
A real credit must go to our guide Ruxandra, who made the day very special for us, & also treated us to a complimentary glass of fizz to end our brilliant day! Thanks to all at Polar Star Travel for their well organised day out.

We enjoyed our week in Levi. Perfect powder snow for alpin and cross skiing and a lot of great and adventures with Polar Star Travel. We have done mostly everthing which is possible to try. From snowmobil safari, huskey sledge, reindeer to snow shoe walking and Snow Village. Our guide Andrew was fantastic, funny and very customer friendly. We loved his own stories and insights from Lapland. He did his job with an amazing passion. If you have the chance to go to Lapland I would recommend to stay in a traditonnal blockhouse booked via Polar Star Travel.

Not happy with this organization. We did a reindeer tour to a Lappish Village, with a 1 km ride. In the booking email they only mentioned that the tour started at 11.00 o'clock. Apparently, the pick-up time was half hour before, which was only mentioned in a second email at the bottom (after the confirmation that tour was between 11.00 and 13.00. How confusing can you be?) When I called their office at 11.05, I couldn’t reach them till 11.30 am. The reason that they didn’t call me, when I wasn’t at the pick-up, was that they were to busy. Seriously? The pick-up was in front of my hotel, I could have been there in 2 minutes. I paid for a taxi to get to the farm and missed half the tour. The had my phonenumber, so it was unbelievable they didn’t call or text me. I paid a lot of money for the tour with my kids and I missed half of it, because they where unclear of the pickup time, they didn’t give me a call, and their office was not reachable. I would not recommend this organisation.

We booked snowshoeing for a party of 9 (two families) and were met by Messi at tourist information.

She took us on a hike up to a cabin on the mountain overlooking the frozen lake. Her enthusiasm and knowledge made the trip the best excursion that we took while in Levi.

Fabulous day out to Rovaniemi, picked up from hotel, overnight snow not stopped driver. Doughnuts and coffee on way at log cabin cafe. Andrew was a font of knowledge, amazing scenery, a taste of what the locals have to live with. Arktikum was informative and shop of native goods reasonably priced. Short trip to Santa village, met the big man himself, wife was like a kid again. Andrew was great, well versed in what he was doing. The day wasn't long enough for us, could spent longer at Santa village, queuing for Santa takes time🎅. Was more personal than a large organised tour. Would thoroughly recommend 😁

Stayed at Polar Star Apartments, nice accommodation for 1-6 people in Levi center, near supermarket, restaurants, bar, skiing tracks and front slope.
Attented their snowshoeing trip to Korkeaniemen laavu public fireplace. My friend tried the e-fatbikes and liked it.
To me it was important that they have the environmental and sustainability certificates for both housing and trips. They are called Green Key and Green Activities.

Next time I’ll try their husky and reindeer safaris! Ps. The Immeljärvi lake is near and that’s a good place to spot aurora borealis!

We had very positive experience with the person at the agency. Don't forget to ask details about the trips, how much time it exactly takes , what's included etc.
We went with polar star to the ice village which is a nice place to visit but not worth 70eur. We also had time pressure and at the end spend more time in the bus than in the village...
