Hosts were amazing people. Very informative and caring. There was a large group that went out -4 of us and around 28 in another group. The large group done nothing but complain and showed no respect to us who were enjoying it. The hosts were very patient with them. Even when the lights appeared and they didn’t want to see them as they were cold (they were wearing all the correct clothing but refused to move around). The hosts ensured that us 4 we looked after and made the entire evening a very memorable and enjoyable one The drinks and biscuits were lovely- I would love to be able to buy the hot drink in the uk. It’s was lovely. Thank you for a wonderful experience
Our guide was Matias, he was incredibly knowledgeable about the northern lights, explained exactly how they form, he was also super friendly and it was like hanging out with an old friend! We unfortunately didn’t manage to see the lights as it was too cloudy but we still had a great time. We had a BBQ with grilled sausages, salmon soup warmed up by the fire, hot berry juice and then some sweet snacks including marshmallows. It really was great even if we didn’t manage to see the lights, we spent about 2 or 3 hours outdoors warming by the fire, and learning about Rovaniemi. Really recommend this tour, thank you Matias!
Overall we really enjoyed our experience from start to finish. Was quite a busy day we went on so would have preferred if it was a bit more quieter but the staff and guides we very attentive. You can choose if you want to use the company's overalls or wear your own gear. The journay was relaxing and the walk itself to the different waterfalls was really enjoyable and not difficult. The only hard bit of the journay was the end walking up the steep hill for 5 minutes. After the walk we stopped off and had a nice BBQ with warm Berry juice, sausages, reindeer sandwich and roasted marshmallows! I would recommend.
Our guide was Louis and he was fantastic. We had loads of fun on this tour, first we were taken to the main offices to get decked out in snow boots, overalls and helmets, we then headed out to the Forrest and got to drive the snowmobiles, the road is very fun: lots of bumps and turns and then got to drive over a frozen body of water. You also gets biscuits and warm berry juice. Louis was super knowledgeable about Rovaniemi and incredibly friendly. Really recommend!
The whole tour was excellent, Louie our guide was exceptional, and we can tell that he really love what he is doing and he shared a lot of information about the Aurora Borealis and Lapland in general. We weren’t really expecting so much to see the aurora, just hoping though. But, luck was on our side that night that we spotted it!
