A really great experience! It was like being in a winter wonderland... the guides were super friendly (especially Kristina who really loves nature and you can tell she really wants to share the beauty of Finland and nature in general with others!), great info and stories and you felt well protected from start to finish and could fully engage with the wonderful nature and enjoy it! I would book again anytime :-)

It was a great hike, we were obly 4 people which made it more fun, so try to go with a small group. We went to a national park and the guide let us walk around on or own while she made a fire. She also gave us a quick tour.

Super nice landscape, you mainly go down on your butt while sliding and there is enough time to enjoy the landscape. While eating you can also enjoy the view of the frozen waterfalls. The guides did a great job!

Very suggestive. The path is quite simple. Challenging only the last climb to reach the parking lot. The guide was very helpful and nice

Helpful guide! Fun and adventurous experience! Thumbs up! Worth it
