    fun to do. Very expensive. We did not want to ride the reindeer sleigh out of respect for the animals even if the farmer is a fan of his animals. The dog sled ride is excellent. We feel that animals like to run. Small downside in terms of organization: we were not warned to take tickets to meet Santa Claus suddenly we did not meet him. Remember to take a ticket because the appointment can be up to four hours later.

    We enjoyed our experience. We were picked up punctually and the guides were friendly. I wish they were offering more information about the reindeer, huskies and the Sami people too. Their role seemed to be more of a transporter than tour guide. The lunch was good. We never felt rushed. The whole day was very relaxing and enjoyable. I would recommend it for sure.

    It was great! The guides are super friendly, they do everything to enjoy them to the fullest! The collection in the house super punctual. The reindeer farms and dogs are very interesting and the walks are unique! Very cute, magical not only for children. They leave a lot of free time to enjoy at your own pace, without burdening the schedule. We have enjoyed very much! It is worth hiring with lunch, the food in the agreed restaurant was delicious!
