An excellent outing, which I very highly recommend. Michael was an excellent guide, very pleasant, helpful and made the day thoroughly enjoyable. Individuals welcome (unlike many other tours available!) and groups kept small. Most enjoyable 'snack' at the end of hike made for a lovely end to day and homemade cake in shop absolutely delicious! If you'd like to visit Korouoma Canyon, look no further!

Super nice tour! We had the chance to saw the frozen waterfall, wander around fairytale forest paths and enjoy the view of a polar bear playing in the water at the Ranua Park. Our guide Lattif was very gentle; he gave us an insight of local stories and traditions and was willing to make many stoppages as we wished during our road trip to take photos and relax at scenic spots 😊

Very complete flexible and organized tour to get to know the region with incredible views, thanks to our guide Lattif for his punctuality, kindness and effort to exceed the expectations of each place we visited, the frozen waterfalls an incredible place that you cannot miss!!! The truck is very comfortable and safe.

The guided tour was definitely worth your time and money. Having a small group tour allowed us to have a more interactive Q&A session with Michael - there were a lot of learnings from tour guide and as well as from my fellow tourists.

Beautiful experience! Our guide Alex was really kind and thoughtful. The final snack and hot drinks were very welcome and made everything even more enjoyable. Highly recommended!
