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.

    My boyfriend and I had an unforgettable adventure with their tour. We went early April. We were incredibly lucky to witness the Northern Lights, and it was an experience we'll cherish forever.

    From the start, the team was wonderful. Our French guide was not only knowledgeable but also brought a lot of fun and energy to the evening. His passion and dedication to creating a memorable experience were evident throughout the night.

    We didn't have to venture too far from Rovaniemi, which was a bonus. Our guide took us to several prime spots, patiently waiting for the perfect moment when the Northern Lights would grace the sky. His professional camera captured stunning photos, and we had plenty of time to take our own pictures in front of his camera.

    The cold night, at -15 degrees, was no match for our enthusiasm. We could always warm up in the van between light sightings, and the provided tea and biscuits added a cozy touch.

    This experience is a must-do in Rovaniemi. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting, as it's a magical adventure regardless of the light show.

    Great Value for money

    you get the snowgear a warm drink and a small bag from them, you just have to get in the ven.

    there is possibility that they lend you a lens for a couple of camera models (those 1000+€ lenses)
    A quick guide to set up the cameras, to capture the northern lights.

    CHECK THE WEATHER BEFORE YOU GO, if its cloudy no chance to see much.

    Also book this trip first, if you dont see the northern lights, you can try again at a much better rate.

    the pictures are not enhanced, but the shutter speed was low.

    So they are not as green as that in real life, but one could see them very well, we were lucky

    The guide is punctual and polite, and the whole trip is simple and safe. If you don't want to join a tour group with many people, this must be a very good experience.

    Incredibly amazing experience in the first week of April 2024. Katrina and her team made our night unforgettable. Not to mention and according to her, we were able to see one of the most colorful light shows of the season. While we were very late in the season, according to her they were nearly done for the year in a week or so, so we had this entire dream location to ourselves. Katrina also went out of her way to take photos for us, even though they were not necessarily included in the package. Amazing hospitality and the food was delicious with fresh cooked salmon with potatoes, over the stove warm berry juice and a berry cheesecake with a scoop of ice cream.

    We were a group of 7, but they managed to bring 2 cars which made the 30 minute drive from Santa’s Village much more comfortable. They could have fit us in the 9 seater they had, but instead they went above and beyond our expectations and over delivered.

    Since it was very late in the season, we were expecting to just go for a cruise on their provided snowmobiles and scooters, which would have topped off the night as we did not plan to see much dancing in the lights. However, the night only got better and will leave memories of a night that will never be forgotten. Thank You! Your kindness made us happy and we felt like you were part of our family!

    This tour was absolute chaos. We booked for 7pm lapland BBQ northen lights tour. We were then sent an e mail to meet at 7.30. We were told to wait inside and someone would shout for us. When I asked what was happening after 7.30 and still waiting we were told to wait outside. Many many tours were being taken, many tour leaders not shouting out which tours they were taking so we were so confused. The 7pm tour was still with us. By chance I asked someone and he posted us in the right direction. We all got taken to a bus at 20 00, there was not enough space for everyone, a small girl had to sit on her mums lap. ? Are there no safety laws ? Then randomly a load of people were taken off the bus, dont know why. We were still sat on the bus at 8.30 and getting reports that the northern lights were happening right now. I saw mixed reviews pre booking and hoped what I read before that it was unorganised that this didn't happen often and might be rare so i risked booking with you. I see your company keep apologising on reviews saying the same apology. Rather than apologise why don't you change your process. One easy solution is have a sign with the name and time of tour on it. People then go and stand by that sign and get taken. I have never seen such chaos. In the chaos we took a wrong person and had to stop the coach to let him off.

    We chose this tour as family friendly, a set good set off time of 7pm and a 3 hour experience felt perfect to be back by 10pm. We ended up not leaving until 8.35 and returning 00.35. The guides were friendly and quirky once we got there which was nice, but we had no information about what was happening throughout.

    The Tee pees were so cramped with people scrambling to get sausages and marshamallows and squeezed by a fire. I didnt bother as too claustrophobic. We did see the northern lights which was amazing but felt this experience stressed us out so much it dampened the feeling when we saw the them. Would never use this company again

    The tour has been great, we have been lucky to be able to see the northern lights that night, that wasn't a given of course.
    Nick has been fantastic!
    Thank to small group we were part of and although we were out until late, Nick made sure our tired kids were involved, entertained and happy throughout. He explained the origin of the northern lights in layman terms, and took some great pictures for us that will now be part of our collection of memories.

    A really informative and fun experience! We learned a lot about the reindeer and it was a surprise to see how different all the reindeer were in terms of character. The reindeer that was pulling our sleight was very enthusiastic (we went a lot faster than I thought we would!) and had a fun personality. The snack we had afterwards was also tasty and gave us the opportunity to speak to the staff a but more about their experiences with the reindeer.

    We went out with Alex and Alex. I highly recommend this tour. It was my favorite part of the whole trip. Both Alex was very informative and fun to talk to, and the view was amazing. They gave us authentic Finnish sausage and Glögi, unlike a different tour I took, where the sausage was cheap and not fully cooked, and the Glögi was heavily diluted. This was a small group and we had a special place to eat so we were not crowded by other tours. We started earlier than other tours as well, therefore the forest was practically empty for us. We felt we were treated special and it made the whole tour more than worth it.
