Highly recommended for both couples and families with children! The tour was very personal and all individual questions were answered. We particularly enjoyed the visit to the reindeer farm, including a sleigh ride, warming up in a typical Lappish tent, feeding the reindeer and romping around with the reindeer dogs. It was also interesting at the husky farm, but the 2km tour was over quite quickly due to the running speed of the dogs. The tour took about 3 hours in total (including travel there and back) and was worth every penny.

Very nice experience, unfortunately we have not seen the aurora but nobody can know that. The only thing I think about is that often in March the aurora comes out late, like around 11pm, which is usually the time when tours are coming to an end. I think it would be better to organize myself later.

Very cool! Both farms looked like the animals are in good hands, very friendly tour guides and the experience was just fantastic

We had a great trip Our guide was great Laughed a lot

very nice walk in the heart of the Finnish forest.
