    We visited in fall and the fall colours were absolutely gorgeous. We mountain biked for a full day and it proved a great way to explore the beautiful nature!

    We visited the reindeer farm by snow mobile, which was a fun way to travel. The animals were docile, and there was a short ride around an enclosed track. It was an interesting thing to do - once. There was a short cultural talk over hot drinks and snacks, which was focused on the traditions of the Sami people and local flora and fauna. Would be great for kids.

    Kiilopää is run by Suomen Latu (The Finnish society for Outdoors activities), so it is perfect place to come and enjoy the Lapland wildlife and wild nature. It is right next to The UKK Nature Park, so location is excellent for hiking and Winter activities like skiing. They have Also The best smoke sauna and 'winter spa'= ice swimming place to enjoy after a great day Outdoors. The Vibe here is very down to earth, so easy to calm down after a hectic City Life

    Today we took the 5 euro ski bus from Saariselka to Kiilopaa. Beautiful bus journey through a winter wonderland. Bus dropped us right by the start of the Ruijanpolku Trail where there are several information boards giving details of winter walking, snow shoe and cross country ski routes. You can hire equipment from the hotel next to the trail, there is also a campsite and hostel. We decided to walk the 7.5 km snow shoe route up to the top of the fell at 500 plus meters, hardwork in the snow but the views from the top are definitely worth it. We followed a clear marked route all the way back to the fell hotel and then enjoyed the smoke sauna and a dip in the ice plunge pool a fantastic day out.

    Arctic Timetravels could not have been more friendly, professional or helpful. We spent a magical night hunting for the aurora around Ivalo and Inari, experiencing the extreme beauty and silence of Lapland winter. Karolina was a perfect guide and her knowledge and enthusiasm made it a night we will always remember. They had suggested moving our tour to a day which they thought would give us a better chance of seeing the lights. We were so glad they did since we saw fantastic displays of the northern lights at each location we visited. Arctic Timetravels certainly lives up to its good reputation.

    We had a very pleasant stay at Saariselkä. It’s incredible to experience the engagement of Husky&Co and their professionalism for organising safaris and tours. Great staff & equipment! We certainly recommend their services.

    Good amount of slopes with lifts that at the time were not at all crowded so it was great to get fast up and use these slopes offering beautiful scenery.

    We had an amazing experience with the Finnish horses. My son, my husband and I are beginner riders but thanks to the explanations and a practical demonstration we enjoyed our trail in the forest. The nice owner chose for us the most suitable horses according to their and our characteristics.
    She showed us some beutiful pictures of the summer safaris and offered us a good tea. Really recommended!

    Because we were with a big group, I've made the reservation in advance. Maria helpt me excellent with the excursions. We had some special wishes and that was no problem. We made several excursions. We went on a Husky tour. Because this wasn't our first time to lapland we already been on 2 husky tours. This one was one of the best. Andrey, our guide from Polar Creek, is a very kind person. So easy to get along with..
    We also book the ice fishing trip. Andrey took us to a lake and provided us with a fishing rod. While we were fishing, he made sausages on an open fire. Also very nice.
    We also went on the chasing aurora trip. And YES we saw the northern lights. Andrey took beautiful pictures of our group with the northern lights. So yes I really would recommend this company. it's a small company, what we prefer, and they are very kind.

    Thanks Yani for a night never to forget. We saw the northern lights dance across the sky and it was a wonderful experience. The fire was warming on a freezing night with a hot juice. Would recommend this tour.
