Our guide Mike was extraordinary and we really enjoyed the day of activities! We were 5 people and we had the chance to catch several fish using Lappish techniques, which we were then able to taste in a soup made by Mike over a wood fire in the middle of the frozen lake... it was indescribably beautiful. The snowshoe walk in the forest was just as exceptional, and our guide's passion for his country and its nature was infectious. We will keep unforgettable memories. A huge thank you for Mike's kindness and his professionalism!!! Absolutely worth discovering if you have the chance to come to the surrounding area….

We had wonderful experience in Lapland. The tour lady was very friendly and helpful. She gave us plenty of ideas of local culture. She also gave us plenty of time to rest and take photos. Overall this is a wonderful experience
