    We had a great time with the Snowshoeing and Ice Fishing! Our guide Theo was very nice and helpful. He even invited his professional photographer Alex to join us. This alone is a very big plus. Haha. Snowshoeing was very tiring yet very fun. We enjoyed the most is the ice fishing! We would definitely recommend Wild About Lapland if you're gonna do tours in Lapland.

    Great experience!

    An overall great experience! We were given suitable clothing to wear before we set out. Theo (our guide) was very friendly and knowledgeable. Although we didn't catch any fish we had a great time snowshoeing and learning how to drill holes in the ice, fish and make a fire. We would recommend booking with Wild about Lapland as it is a local small business and we had a great experience.
