    The tour was very fun. I enjoyed the Santa Claus village and the reindeer -husky sledding too. Ericka, one of the guides, was very knowledgeable with reindeers and we learned a lot from her. The salmon soup provided for lunch was the tastiest I've tried during my Finland trip. It was also good that the driver picked us up on time in our accommodation. I could've given this experience a 5-star but I'll leave it to 4-star coz the tour guide/driver that supposed to "guide" us with the trip didn't do much for us. We had to follow some other guides so we know where to go. He was just busy chatting with other people. We even got lost to a different activity coz he wasn't paying attention and didn't direct us where to go.

    I rested together with my boyfriend and we had a fantastic time. Especially I would like to note: a trip on deer and huskies. It was an unforgettable feeling of delight and happiness. I advise everyone to experience this magic. Also, it was interesting to listen facts and stories about deer. The traditional salmon soup is the most delicious soup I have ever eaten. I’m completely delighted, it was really a very interesting and unforgettable day.

    Really enjoyed this tour! We were collected on time from our hotel and brought to the company office to get some cold weather gear on. The day itself was great - reindeer ride and then an information session around the fire on reindeers with hot drinks and cakes. Then lunch for an hour of hot salmon soup and bread / cake / coffee. The kids were able to go back out and play in the snow when they were finished eating. Then over to see the huskies and had lots of time with the team there and to pet the dogs. Then back to the office to return the cold weather gear and on to Santa Claus village, which was amazing and great fun for my daughter.
