    Super nice guide. Snowshoe adventures through the forest and across a frozen lake. We could decide for ourselves whether a mixture of both (forest and lake) or just one of the two variants. Followed by ice fishing. Here, too, it was up to us which activity came first. We received a lot of great information, everything was explained very well. Even really tasty sausages and bread at the campfire in the tipi including dessert (Finnish chocolate). Just great and recommendable :-)

    This activity was with a smaller agency, focussing on groups of maximum 8 people. The ride to a private lake took us 25-30 minutes. In the first hour, we could walk on the lake with the snow shoes. Upon returning, we were learnt how to drill a whole in the ice, and how to fish. This is more about the experience than about catching fish. It is quite cold, you often have to take of the gloves, and you are sitting still all the time. Luckily there is a yurt nearby with fire, to warm up. And after the activity to have some saucages with hot chocolate or coffee. The hot chocolate was not so tasty (was make with water and not with milk). Better would be to offer the typical local hot berry juice. The saucages were very tasty, and we also enjoyed the stories of our guide

    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.
