What people are saying about Rovaniemi

This is one of the best experiences I’ve tried in Rovaniemi during day time and I’m so glad that i took the chance to join. I was so nervous about the cold but the thermal clothing were surprisingly so warm. You hardly feel the cold at all and the handle of snowmobile is also heated while you ride. It was fantastic experience. Last but not least, Lennert from Wild Nordic, our guide is super nice and warm and very attentive. Considering he has to do this everyday to entertain the tourist, he still shows alot of professionalism and being attentive and guiding and taking your pictures. I feel safe being guided by him and most of all, he’s done a GREAT job. I love him and i encourage everyone to try this experience, it’s safe and super fun.

We had a fantastic day, very enjoyable and thanks to our two lovely guides, you could not fault them. So helpful in every way. One little fault was the husky ride was too short and that seems to be everyone's complaint so come on boys , ye need to make this a longer ride and then ye will get 100percent booking reviews.

un peu cher pour les activités possibles, matériel pour le patinage est vétuste, bcp de patins étaient cassés... sinon la glissade avec les bouées étaient très chouettes, les plats au ice restaurant étaient bons et l'accueil très chaleureux, prix du resto très raisonnable... mais je ne referai plus...

Thoroughly enjoyed this. It was just our family, the elf got all the kids involved and Mum and Dad! She was very friendly and asked and answered lots of questions. The children were intrigued by her.

sooo nice you can drive the motor to husky and reindeer farm
