This was definitely the best value for money tour that my friend and I came across in Rovaniemi. We found a lot of tours to be over priced basically due to the touristic nature of the town. This tour however included a great amount of snow mobility (From main office to the reindeer farm, to the husky park and then back to the main office). Both sleigh rides were short but that was anticipated for the price. Can see that all carers for the animals really know and look after the animals too. Something good to note is that when in Santa Claus village, the time is up to you how you wish to use it; however if you want to meet santa and get a photo that they’re may be a line and that this photo is something by extra to buy at your out cost as you see fit (They have several photo packages available) Only down side would be that although our guide only picked up 4 of us, there were 3 other groups of which we had to continuously wait for, but that was a bit out of the tours hands
We were in Rovaniemi in the middle of the January and it was really cold at the time. It was down to -33 degrees. We were in doubt wether to book the tour or not. We decided to book and it was the best decision ever. Our guide Tiina was extremely friendly and felxible. Since the it was so cold that the snwomobiles didn’t start in the morning so we rode them in the afternoon and used a car in the morning to visit the reindeer and husky farms. The local farm guides were also friendly and gave us a lot of insights about the animals. Especially I liked the reindeer guide Arttu. For lunch we were offeres traditional lappish salmon soup which was delicious and really warmed us up in the cold day. We recommend to book the tour. There’s no cold weather, it’s all about the right clothing *wink wink*
The trip was very organized and we had lovely guides. They gave us a lot of time to discover the reindeer- and huskyfarm and to kuddle the animals. Snowmobile tour was nice as well. We shared 1 snowmobile between 2 people and it was definitely enough time for both of us to drive it. We reccomend to bring some food cause they will only serve drinks and cookies. At the end of the trip we had a lot of time to see the Santa Clause Villge as well on our own. The Total reccomendation for Booking this trip!
Will never forget!! Guides were happy to answer our questions and show us around. Snowmobiling to each destination made it fun, and broke up the experience. We were given snacks and hot drinks at each destination, allowing us to defrost a bit. Reindeer and husky farms were an amazing experience. The rides were a little short, but that was to be expected with the amount of activities packed into the day.
The rides are a bit short especially the reindeer The group should be divided into 2 for the snowmobile so that the ones with experience can go faster and enjoy and not be hindered by the speed
