Absolutely great, smart and competent toboggan ride as a guide, a well-kept route and a wonderful old café. Appropriately in the woods and on ice sections. Safari facilities clean and up-to-date, good sleds! 10/10 outings. It still happened to be the only one in the sledge to drive briskly.

Our party of 4 booked this combined tour early April. The weather was perfect, with fresh snow and bright blue sky. Our guide, Jordi, was very friendly and always ready to help and even sent us pictures and videos of our activities. We highly recommend this tour.

Extraordinary experience! Thanks to our fabulous guide, he did everything for our group! ❤️
