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.

    Very interesting museum about the flora and fauna of Lapland and the history of Lapland and Rovanemi.
    There is also an exhibition about the Arctic.
    Duration of visit approx. 2 hours.

    We did enjoy our visit to Santa Clause Village Rovaniemi, however
    it was very busy and the most touristy part of our entire Scandinavia trip - we found so many people rude.
    We went to SCV as prior to leaving to leaving everyone kept saying ‘you going to SCV’ a bit of FOMO crept in so we did visit, in all honesty we have visited Santa in the North Pole in US it was far less commercialized and more personal experience

    After a long research we booked a Premium Combo safari for all day with Arctic Lifestyle. The communication with the company when making a booking was excellent.
    Then once we arrived to Rovaniemi it turned out that is way below 20degrees and we were with 2 small kids age 8 and 4 and we got worried a bit. Totally unnecessary.
    We hit a jackpot with our tour guide Lenny, who we had just for ourselves and he spent with us a whole day and made it really very enjoyable for our kids and us.
    The tour started by bringing us to the company's base where we got changed into the winter clothes and our boys just got helmets, as they were already properly dressed for this cold.
    None of us drove snowmobiles ever before and Lenny made sure to explain to us not only how to drive but how to make it enjoyable for us. We both had our own snowmobiles to drive which was what we booked and we absolutely loved it. Lenny's tips as to how the machines behave on the snow helped us a lot and after a short while we really had a blast and enjoyed the long ride through the frozen river in a lovely wintery landscape. The kids drove together with our tour guide and they loved it!
    Then we arrived to the place nearby the reindeer farm where we had a short ride on a sleigh pulled by one reindeer. They had a lovely fireplace to warm up and after the ride we could go and feed the reindeers. We also got an interesting lecture inside the little house about the reindeers farm and had cookies and hot tea/juice.
    We couldn’t wait to jump back onto the snowmobiles again and we took our time for lovely photos and turns back to the base. In spite of the coldness we really had a great time. Lenny made sure our kids are safe and happy.
    After that we drove to the Santa’s Village for a lovely and scrumptious lunch buffet which was included in the price of the safari.
    And then last but not least the icing on the cake for me personally – the husky ride. We drove outside Rovaniemi to Huskypoint a lovely kennel where you could see that there are absolutely passionate about what they do. I drove one sleigh – their guide explains how to do it – one thing to remember not to let go of the sleigh! The huskies love running and are very happy to do it and they hate when you put on breaks.
    All in all this is a great safari well worth its steep price and all great activities which we wanted to do in Lapland combined in one day.
    Lenny our tour guide was truly exceptional. He was extremely kind and patient with our kids and we felt they were well taken care of. He really made our day. We always felt safe. Lennert also has a great personality and myself and my husband loved his companion.
    We truly recommend the Premium Combo with Arctic Safari and if you are lucky enough to get a tour guide like Lenny you will have an unforgettable day filled with fantastic memories!

    Walking in a beautiful forest area, covered in low annuals, imagining a scene in winter where the snow is often up to a metre deep. The path is well formed and easy to walk on. Tranquil, though in summer be prepared for mosquitos.

    A very good ski resort it's amazing for beginners and there is not a lot of people there so you can practice without having a lot of interruptions and the people are very nice!

    Amazing and very impressive view over Finland and rovaniemi if you have a sunny day. Hidden spot but worth to walk there even if it’s cold!

    We were part of a tour group and we arrived at the farm by boat on a scenic river journey from Rovaniemi. There was a quite lengthy boarded walkway from the river to the farm, which required a little care as it was quite narrow and could be slippery in places. On arrival at the farm we received a very welcoming and entertaining introduction (including myths and legends), to the farm operations. We then met the reindeer who were in a large paddock area, and were obviously used to human interaction. After a very interesting visit, we made our way back to the river for our return boat trip.

    This is for the children people, seriously, there is a little wait, peak December, a little wait. Yes it's no different to anywhere else, it's commercial. Santa was great, he was genuinely interested in us. The house is fantastic. Temper expectations and remember it's for the kids.

    The winter leisure park is set of a main road , a beautiful drive from the main road to the park.
    A family run business, the staff where so friendly and helped out with all the equipment .
    We enjoyed the park so much we went there twice in a week.
    I take my hat of to them and wish them all the best in the future.

    We booked the Northern Lights by Minivan tour from Levi.
    Unfortunately it was a cloudy few days on our holiday so we didn't see them on this tour, but we still wanted to do the tour as we knew we'd still see beautiful sights whether there were northern lights or not. And we were right!

    Our guide was called Emmi. She was polite, friendly and so helpful! She was happy to take photos, help us up when we fell in the snow and answered our questions on the local area.
    Due to the cloud cover we unexpectedly ended up doing a bit of snowshoeing which was quite physical but a lot of fun! It felt like we were in such a special place in the wilderness and we got some amazing photos.
    Emmi then took us down the path to the viewpoints by the Panorama Hotel.
    She let us take our time and take the tour at our own pace so it was very relaxed.
    After that we went to a hut to light a fire for sausages and hot berry juice which was brilliant!

    We loved this tour and thank you again to Emmi for being our guide.
    Communication pre-tour was great, all my emails were responded to quickly which was reassuring.
    Thank you!

    The absolute best experience we had in Lapland. Everything was absolutely perfect.
    We spent the day in April at Arctos. It was an unforgettable experience from beginning to end. Super private, intimate, relaxing. Raymond thought of every detail. We spent the day going from the beautiful sauna to the frozen river to cold plunge and to top it off, sat in the hot tub relaxing and looking over the river. The lunch was absolutely delicious and we spent time talking with Raymond about life in Lapland and the traditions of the people. Absolutely, highly recommend 10/5 stars. Book early so you don't miss this experience. Once in a lifetime.

    Wow, wow, wow! Words fail me to describe the experience of going on a husky sledge ride with this company. We have 2 children, a 8 yr old guy and a 6 yr old girl. By the end of our trip to Lapland, we asked them what they most liked about the trip. I was thinking they’d say the visit to Santa’s village or meeting Santa Claus. NO! It was the husky ride! 😃 This is such a serious, responsible and ethical company. They care for the dogs with such love and extend the same care to customers. We were treated super kindly, staff helped us to warm up with the overalls and boots they lent us; gave lots of explanation about how to use the sledge safely. And after the ride everyone is treated to a lovely warm tea with biscuits before getting their bus back to Santa’s village. Don’t think twice, book with them! You’ll make memories for a lifetime!

    We did the Small-Group Aurora Snowshoeing in Forests and had an amazing time. GG was a fantastic guide, it was wonderful to walk through the forest at night in snow shoes, we felt like we had the forest to ourselves. We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights and GG guided us to a fantastic spot to see them. It was a truly magical experience that we'll never forget, thank you very much
