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.

We booked a husky trip on St Stephen's Day but had to cancel last minute due to an accident to on epf the party. The company were very accommodating and gave us a full refund despite the last minute cancellation. They were super professional and very good to deal with. I highly recommend.

We did 3 activities: dog sledding, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. The guides were exceptional, especially Maleka and Jules! Don't hesitate to go there with your eyes closed, it will be one of your best memories.

MOST BORING SNOWMOBILE TOUR EVER! They can better call it scootmobile safari, my grandfather on his scootmobile went faster then what you go on a snowmobile with this trip. Really a waste of money. You are forced to drive maximum 30 km/hr in a single line behind the “guide”. If you go 2m next to the track of the person in front they get angry. Better rent a snowmobile and explorer yourself (you can do at the lake). Then at least you can go a bit faster and have fun! The round they do with the tour in 6 hours I did myself in an hour..
The word guide means in my mind that they show you the do en dont’s and lead the way and make you have fun. For safartica the meaning of the word guide means you must follow the person in front exactly in the same track and keep an average speed of 20km/hr and for those who want to play is no room.
Dont sell the trip then as great for family with older children..

The guides of Safartica are very nice and friendly. They take a lot of time for the people who make a safari with them.
Sometimes there are too many people in the groups.
The transportation is very good organized and exactly on time. The equipment we used was very helpful and of good quality.
A special big thanks to Kaisa, Jenni and Margot! You were amazing guides. We really enjoyed it with you!

We were picked up at our Hotel and then provided with suitable Equipment for the Tour (balaklava, helmet, overall, shoes, socks and gloves).
The Tour itself was great. We were never rushed and always took time to check out possible aurora sightings.

Even tho the conditions were cloudy, we got lucky.

At the midway point we had some warm drinks and Snacks in a Kota, before we started to head back.
The two guides (Jonna and Dori) were super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Great Experience! I r8 8/8

We had 4 safaris: snow shoes in the night, snow mobile in the night, husky farm and snow mobile King of Ylläs. All was fantastic, very well organized. Staff more than friendly and helpful. We are very satisfied.

We stayed at Yllasrinni log cabins, run by Safartica. The resort was well managed and the staff there were very welcoming and helpful.
The cabin was very comfortable, lovely and warm. It had everything you would need for a holiday.
We did several excursions with Safartica, which were well organised and run . During each trip there were hot drinks and something to eat. The guides gave a talk about the area and about general life in Lapland, which was not only interesting, and considering, that most of the guides weren't even from Finland, showed their enthusiasm.
One excursion I would like to highlight was the 25Km snowmobile safari. Marceau was brilliant whilst looking after my wife and son, who suffered with travel sickness whilst on the trip. He made sure they stayed safe and organised a pickup for them to take them back. He is a credit to Safartica.
On New Year's eve there was a party on the frozen lake with a fireworks display. It was quite an experience, watching fireworks, drinking prosecco in the snow.
Overall, we had a fab time in an amazing place.

We went on the Santa short break with Magic of Lapland and we’ve had a fabulous time. Everything is run incredibly smoothly and the tour guides are so helpful. It’s not cheap but tastes as one of our best holidays ever.
