I really enjoyed the whole trip. You get to pet and take a sleigh ride with the reindeers. The reindeer guide then tells your about the reindeer industry’s in Finland and overall fun facts while you sip lingen berry tea and eat a fun size cinnamon roll. Similarly, I really loved the husky ride as it’s faster than reindeers. The guide tells you all you wanna know about huskies and she’s very knowledgeable. She also welcomes you to more tea and a cookie Finally the snow mobile is the most exciting part as you go faster than both huskies and reindeers. You are also in control so it’s a cool experience. The general guide was very laid back and chill dude from Finland - I liked him!

This is really great experience and be one of the best activity in Finland!!. Snowmobile is super fun and it is a long journey (about 40 KM) along with amazing view (luckily, the weather is also nice). Ice fishing is our new experience even we did not catch any haha. Our tour guide (Svarva) is really nice, friendly, supportive. He teach us how to drive the snowmobile, do the local snow fishing and make us really delicious lunch (reindeer soup with potato bread and berry juice). Recommended!!!

Everything was magical Pick up - 100% on time Both guides were super friendly and always ready to help. You get all the warm clothes you need. Snowmobile driving is so much fun. We were able to see the northern lights. Magical experience It takes a little longer than 4 hours Only tiny suggestion would be, better sausages and maybe some bread for the sausages

Only to be recommended! Great landscapes and lots of fun driving! Our guide Mika was extremely courteous and made the experience unforgettable. Were on the road for more than three hours after a short introduction and covered a good 90 km!

We had a great guide! It was one of the most fun activity we had ever had!
