    We had a great tour of the amethyst mine. Alex, our guide, was very personable and explained some Finnish customs to us during our ride to the site. He also allowed us to stop for an unplanned lunch on our return trip. The mine tour itself was very educational, and we enjoyed mining for amethysts!

    Dog sledding through the Arctic Circle as the sun rises, what more can you dream of on a trip to Finland? Everything was perfect... the people at Bearhill were knowledgeable and helpful, the dogs were so much fun, and the experience was once in a lifetime! Special shout-out to one of our dogs, Hoppa, who was the funniest rebel dog. He just wanted to roll in the snow and play with his friends, instead of running! The trip itself was stunning; we alternated between driving the sled and sitting in it, so each person had time to take pictures or experience leading the team. We went through forests and over frozen lakes, up and down hills, and there were guides along the way to make sure the dogs stayed on track and that nothing went wrong. After we had a chance to meet the dogs and pet them, and feed them treats (5 euro each, but so worth it because it made the dogs so happy!!!!), then we warmed up with tea and cookies. A thrilling experience, wow!

    We have experienced the on 1 hour long snowmobile ride in the wild (family of 2+2; children aged 5 and 8). We were fortunate enough to be guided by the owner himself. Such a wonderful man. Once he got to know that it is my son's birthday he offered us a mini-snowmobile ride free of charge. He has also showed us around the whole facility and took the time to talk to us and really spend the time with us. The ride was also great. It is really in the wild, not "around the block". The place, the people and the whole experience was just great. Would highly recommend.

    One of the best decision's of my trip to Finland was my experience with the Beyond Arctic team! I had selected private aurora photogrgaphy tour, Korouma frozen waterfall photography tour. Although we were not lucky to get the aurora due to poor weather, Maiju made sure we understood and trained us on how to photograph the auroras. It proved to be quite precious when we got the chance to see the auroras on our own a few days later. The same goes for Nadja on our frozen waterfall tour. She was extremely informative and gave us a great experience during this tour. Last but but not the least, Juho was phenomenal and really patient with the millions of questions I had prior to the trip (related to the tour and general Finland questions) and he had made sure that we had our trip extremely comfortable and well planned.
    I highly recommend Beyond Arctic because they are extremely focussed with a small group and excellent photographers.
    Thank you Beyond Arctic!

    We have travelled extensively as a couple and have been on many tours but these guys are on top of the game. We booked a Northern Lights tour and or hosts were 'Jordi' and 'Barnabus' . They went above and beyond. We stayed out longer then the tour was advertised for to make sure we had the best chance to spot the lights and thanks to them we did. We had plenty of barbeque sausages and hot berry juice to keep us warm. Jordi captured some amazing photos and helped everyone with their cameras to make sure the photos were captured as best as possible. 2 fantastic tour guides.

    We also done a Snowmobile and animals day with 'Anders'. This was equally as good as the first tour, Anders made sure that everyone on the tour was having a great time. The husky and reindeer farm was great fun and you could tell that the animals were well cared for. The snowmobiling was great fun and Anders made sure that every was going at a pace that was comfortable for them.

    TLDR: Don't hesitate just book the tour!

    Used the services of the company in Nurmes and rented a snowmobile. Very good rental experience, snowmobiles are in good shape and inspected after previous rent. Renting agreement was detailed and all questions were answered. Definitely can be recommended!

    Me and my friend booked the trip very spontaneously and it was the best decision ever. Martin Stefanov was our guide and he made the experience truly unique. We were fortunate enough to have a private tour, so we had a lot of time floating. Even though we did not see Aurora, it didn't matter at all, as seeing some stars and the sky as well as just being so close to nature in the middle of nowhere was truly beautiful enough! 😍
    Martin also gave us many recommendations what else to do in the area and shared a lot of his really inspiring stories. I would recommend anyone to take this tour, especially when Martin is the guide!!

    It was the first time with a snowmobile for both of us. If you are already in Lapland it is definitely worth the money. Hotel pick-up was on time, we received all the equipment needed (overall, helmet, gloves,..) which was also clean and kept us warm. The instructions were clear and didn’t take long, the slopes were well prepared and the two hours went over way too fast, as it makes really fun driving these skidoos. Also super nice staff. Btw.: We saw wild reindeer 🤭

    The owner of the company is very experienced and tries his best to provide a unique experience to his customers. I booked a reindeer farm visit and a moose safari with him. Both trips will stay in my memory for a very long time - amazing!

    This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, and we travel A LOT! This was such a limit pusher in so many ways and pleasant, warm, friendly, and just all around absolutely terrific. Doing the sauna and ice plunge was so fun. Then, we relaxed and enjoyed time around the fire inside cooking sausages and drinking warm blueberry juice. Wow, cannot recommend enough. You won’t regret this! Great family-run business, great job.
