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.

    Great service! Booking safaris with them was the best decision! They took all our whims into consideration. Everyone friendly, great guides, small groups. Great location. Thank you Wild about Lapland for an unforgettable experience! We highly recommend.

    We went with little hope of seeing them because in April it starts to get dark, but Kimmo said 'here they are' and we saw them. Thank you for this incredible experience, you are the best at hunting the northern lights.🫐🫐🫶🫶🫶

    We had a wonderful night trip, looking for the northeen lights. Our guide Geertho ( I Hope to write It in the correct way) came to collect us at our Air B&B. We then drove ( a small group of 8 people) to a Place where She explained us how to set our cameras and mobile phones, to Better catch the lights. We then moved an hour away, in a Place where we could get something to eat in a very nice Tepee. In the meanwhile we could enjoy the carpet of stars in the Sky and the lights, although they were a bit fainted. Anyway the mobiles and the cameras could catch them Better. Geertho sent us some good pictures of us some days later. Really worth of. Thanks to the team of Welcome Lapland and to our special guide.

    We did the rafting on May and everything went really fine. The instructor was very informative and observant. We had a blast beginning to our bachelor party. Huge thanks to Sakke and the crew.

    Helena took us in a amazing spot in the middle of the woods and alongside a magical lake, lightened by the moon and the snow.
    We had the chance to catch the Northen Light and this made me an unforgettable night!
    Thank you Helena :)

    We did the Traditional Lappish Evening. And it was exactly what the title says. What can i say about this experience...words are not enough.
    We booked the activity on 6.2.2020 me and my girlfriend and we were the only ones that night. Our guides were Juho and Minttu (boy and girl). They were the kindest Fins we met during our trip to lapland. Juho was also very funny and talkative which made the evening even better.
    They picked us up from our hotel and we drove to a lake house in the middle of the forest in a very beautiful location. They opened a fire inside a traditional lappish tent where they cooked for us some snacks and sausages and hot chocolate while we were waiting for the YURT sauna to heat up. Afte we ate our snacks thay gave us some "shoes" that you can walk more easily in the snow and we went to the lake were you are supposed to dive in the cold water.
    When the sauna was ready they took us to it and they provided with towels and instructions on how to operate the sauna. Everything was so organized and clean. We enjoyed the sauna very much. This traditional outdoors sauna is way better than the ones at your local gym, trust me. While we were sweating like pigs inside the sauna :P our guides were preparing the equipment in the frozen lake because i was going to attempt to dive. And i totaly did it (even though i could only last for 5 seconds). They also filmed the whole process with our camera.
    After i finished my girlfriend also decided to do the frozen lake dive and i wanted to try it again (that is how much i enjoyed it). Even though they had already removed the equipment from the lake they were once again very kind and agreed to set it up again for us.
    After the sauna and the lake thay cooked for us a delicious dinner with salmon, a traditional baked potato mash with a lappish sauce, a traditional lappish salad and some other stuff. Everything was perfect and so yummy that i could not stop eating (i filled up my plate twice). Also we want the receipe please :P
    But the best part of the evening came at the end. 10 minutes before we were leaving the Northern lights appeared in the sky. It was the most magical thing i have seen with my eyes. The lights were so bright that night and due to the location of the cabin (away from the city) they were even brighter. We were extremely lucky that we booked our activity that night and as Juho told us they were the brighter lights he had seen all year. The guys were once again very kind to us that they stayed overtime (even though our activity time had finished) so that we could all enjoy the northern lights as much as we could and take many many photos.
    To sum up, if you want to experience something unique and traditional this is definitely the activity you should book, no doubt. Even if you are not lucky enough as we were to see the lights everything else is going to be perfect, the snacks, the sauna, the frozen lake, the delicious dinner and most of all you will have a great time with very good company that are definitely going to make you feel special.

    I feel bad to be so slow in publishing this review because Kriistina was absolutely fantastic. I can’t recommend her highly enough. She was a great communicator, telling me everything I needed to know before the trip, and even giving me advice about other activities and restaurants in the area. She was very flexible: I was booking as a solo traveller and she arranged the timing to suit other activities I was doing.

    I had a great time on the tour. I found the snowshoes very easy to use, even though I had had only very limited past experience with them. They were easy to pick up. Kriistina was very safety conscious, warned me of a patch of slippery ice, etc, and I felt secure and confident walking up and down hills and through the forest. We went through incredible locations, off the beaten track, and didn’t see many other people. We stopped for a campfire, cooked sausages, flat bread with cheese and hot chocolate. Very tasty! Kriistina and I got on really well together and had great chats. She told me interesting information about the forest, lichen and trees, and showed me wild reindeer tracks. We saw a woodpecker in the wild — really cool! Actual date of experience was 31st of March 2019.

    The day with Kimmo was the first full day Janik and I spent in the region of Rovaniemi. It was labeled “Winter Survival Tour” and a good starting point as we were supposed to spend two days hiking, snowshoeing, and ice-fishing on our own during our week there– one can never know, what will happen 😉.
    Kimmo loves nature and teaching so the best combination for such a day and it was great. Janik and I enjoyed it a lot. I even achieved one of my biggest goals, which was making fire from scratch with basic tools! The ice-fishing is very meditative especially when the fish don’t play along so that there is no action. Fortunately, Kimmo was prepared for such a turn of events, and we had a gorgeous lunch anyway – simple but really good.
    We have to come back as we didn’t build the shelter, which was not required due to the great weather. So, we decided to enjoy the time snowshoeing and explore the surrounding area further under perfect conditions.
    Thanks for the perfect start into our vacation.

    Today I went snowshoeing. It was a amazing experience in the pure nature of Lappland. Very nice and welcoming guide with a lot of knowledge about the nature. I highly recommend it

    It was cold and dark at around 5pm. Experience fishing on ice is my first time. Temperature during winter in Rovaniemi was -20 at least. If you book with the optional tour they will have proper outfit for you, otherwise tight head mask covered to nect a must. Optional tour may provide all necessary equipments. Remember to walk slowly step by step on the ice as you manage your way out further for your fishing spot. Remind the kids not to run as certain part of ice maybe thin.
    We did not catch any fish as most of us could not withstand the cold. We simply took some pictures and learn to drill the hold on ice and tried to fish for a while. Total time spent around 30 mins and quickly walk back to land.
