    We booked this tour very spontaneously and are very glad that it still took place at this time of year. Many other tours weren’t available anymore due to the weather but luckily everything worked out fine for us. In the end we even enjoyed kind of a private tour for two thirds of the trip :)

    We had an awesome time with our guide Jordi. The tour was a perfect opportunity for travellers like us that want to experience many different activities in Lapland on a short time schedule.
    Nevertheless we didn’t rush from one activity to another. There was enough time in between to talk to our guide and the different locals at the stations and learn more about the animals.

    And when there was even some time left before the next stop our guide Jordi (who is the best guide in human history ;) ) showed us some other spots and gave us more information about those.
    He was really nice and also took lots of picture so that we could enjoy the tour without worrying about catching those moments ourselves.

    Our favourite part was the snowmobile tour. Luckily it took even longer than expected!

    We definitely enjoyed the tour and would totally recommend it!

    Mush your own husky sled! After a brief explanaition you're directed to your own sled with about five huskies. An adult with to small children fit in the sled. The other adult behind it.
    Mushing is very easy. No need to steer because the dogs know the way and follow each other. You only have to slow down at the right times with the snow break at the back.
    The 10 km trip took about 45 mins.

    A fantastic evening. Exciting forest safari on a skidoo following our friendly guide, followed by traditional Finnish BBQ . And we saw the Northern Lights on a number of occasions throughout.

    This experience was amazing, well worth the price! Started off with the husky farm where we got to ride a sled pulled by a team of huskies, and then we were able to play with all of the huskies at the farm, including the puppies. We then got to feed the reindeer and ride a sled pulled by the reindeer. We spent the last hour riding snowmobiled around the forest, which was my favorite part of the experience, with the huskies being a close contender. Would definitely recommend to anyone, by far the most fun I had in Rovaniemi! Manel was our tour guide, and was very engaging throughout the experience. He led the snowmobile adventure and was very accommodating, taking requests to take pictures of each of us in the snowmobiles.

    I can't say enough good things about Nordic Unique Travels! We did 4 excursions with them and each was amazing! The husky tour was at a working husky farm. The dogs were well-cared for and the owner was kind and accommodating. The ride was both thrilling and scenic. Time with the dogs afterwards was fun. The snack in the Lappish hut was a great way to end the evening.

    We booked ourselves 3 experiences and so glad we did so with them.

    1) the Aurora picnic which was excellent as the lady who was our guide did a fantastic job giving us the history and details of the Aurora phenomenon. She was very hands on setting up the camp and giving us a little picnic.

    2) Full day snowmobile safari to Snow hotel - We couldn't have had a better guide, David was brilliant. His enthusiasm and confidence was infectious and he made the whole trip so enjoyable. He was extremely helpful and patient with our challenged skills on the snowmobile. The snow hotel was fabulous experience and the lunch served there was outstanding.

    3) Arctic delight - Santas village and snow mobiles to reindeer farm. We were a part of a big group so had Boris and Barbara as our guides. Santas village was a delight specially for the younger ones, loads of souvenir shops and cafes to visit. The buffet lunch was average. We were then shuttled back by bus to the snow mobiles to ride over to the reindeer farm which was yet another great experience.

    We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Safartica for fabulous experiences of the Lapland.

    We were divided into small groups and given protective clothes and footwear. The driver was given specific instructions on how to operate the sleigh. The dogs were eager to start going, had a fantastic time on the sleigh, and were then permitted to spend time fussing over the dogs. We weren't rushed, and it was a thoroughly wonderful time. This is a vacation that is well worth taking.

    We booked 2 tours with Sunny Safari: „Reindeer Safari in Arctic Wilderness“ and „Searching Aurora with Snowmobile“. Maciej from Poland was our guide for the reindeer safari and I can say that he was great! He helped us find a parking space, he was patient and gave us a lot of information about the tours and the animals. It turned out that we`ve picked up the wrong tour but Maciej advised us what would be better to book. I totally recommend him.
    For the snowmobile safari our guide was Niko. He was also very helpful and informative and he made sure we`re having a good time.
    The tour agency overall is very good – nice tours, office with central location and kind staff. They provided us with clothes for cold weather and we were feeling warm.

    Would highly recommend using this company. What a fantastic experience. Enjoyed by both kids and adults. The snowmobiling by far was the best bit.

    Well what can i say other than PERFECT!
    The guide we had Oren,was the perfect guide,not only was he extremely knowledgeable about the northern light's but about rovaniemei itself and gave us some recommendations of places to visit of we wanted to leave our resort and go into the city centre which was helpful.
    Be prepared to climb through snow lf you want to get the best chance to see the northern lights because you will be taken to some amazing places like frozen lakes but getting there is no easy walk,but trust me,it's well worth it.

    We did two snow mobiles. 60k and 36k. Both were brilliant. But the 36k around Levi fell was my favourite.

    The waterfalls are exceptional and we had the best weather ever to see them. Our tour guide was Gabor and he adjusted the trip to our interests and possibilities. We were a small group of only 4 and reached right below the waterfalls.
    Amazing tour!
    Thank you for safe travel back and fourth and the best day of our journey!
    Corona was not an issue at our time of the stay.
