    The experience was an amazing one with our guide David from Romania. He is very professional and bring us on safe route as there is not enough snow; he also assessed our competencies along the way and we eventually tried a more difficult route after the group is more confident and stable in handling the snowmobile. In total we did about 35-40km of snowmobiling. Not to forget the amazing lunch that David cooked up for the group. A very warm and hearty reindeer soup at a mini campsite beside a fire, there was blueberry juice, coffee, cookies, bread and butter as well. Amazing lunch! Recommend this tour and the guide David for an amazing experience. Everything was fast and efficient from checkin, change of gears, driving to the place and the snowmobile experience itself.

    This is really great experience and be one of the best activity in Finland!!. Snowmobile is super fun and it is a long journey (about 40 KM) along with amazing view (luckily, the weather is also nice). Ice fishing is our new experience even we did not catch any haha. Our tour guide (Svarva) is really nice, friendly, supportive. He teach us how to drive the snowmobile, do the local snow fishing and make us really delicious lunch (reindeer soup with potato bread and berry juice). Recommended!!!
