    We had a lovely family day out on our trip to Rovaniemi. Pablo our guide was excellent - friendly, knowledgable, went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable and was just a lovely guide. Each part of the excursion was well managed with plenty of time to do everything. The blueberry cake at the reindeer farm was amazing. The salmon soup was also lovely.

    The experience is just what the publication offers and then some. All the points of the itinerary were fulfilled in time, which was also more than enough not to be in a hurry. Perhaps there was a lack of information about the schedules that they handle in the Villa de Santa, since by the dates we went (Apr10) everything was closed and we could not see Santa
