We absolutely loved it! Unexpectedly there were only our family, so a private tour. Guide was great, very pleasant and with humor. Children also really enjoyed the sleigh. In terms of organization, everything is also very well put together. Would do it again if we go back again.

A cool excursion in beautiful nature. We were well equipped and were the only ones on the tour. The guides did a great job. We drove for a long time until lunch and then celebrated at a stop at a Tippi and cooked reindeer soup, which was very tasty.

Fantastic! We enjoyed. We covered many kilometers, different types of roads, and had a delicious lunch in a tepee. Our guides Benny and Rita were very helpful, kind and knowledgeable.

They suggested additional activities as time allowed, taking into account the weather and our progress.

The guides were both fantastic and went out of their way to make it a memorable evening.
