We were in Rovaniemi in the middle of the January and it was really cold at the time. It was down to -33 degrees. We were in doubt wether to book the tour or not. We decided to book and it was the best decision ever. Our guide Tiina was extremely friendly and felxible. Since the it was so cold that the snwomobiles didn’t start in the morning so we rode them in the afternoon and used a car in the morning to visit the reindeer and husky farms. The local farm guides were also friendly and gave us a lot of insights about the animals. Especially I liked the reindeer guide Arttu. For lunch we were offeres traditional lappish salmon soup which was delicious and really warmed us up in the cold day. We recommend to book the tour. There’s no cold weather, it’s all about the right clothing *wink wink*
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!
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!
We had a fabulous time on our tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, the bus driver was very good. Even on the snowy, iced up roads that day I always felt safe with his driving. The boat was great, smooth, the tour and meeting the captain was fun. Floating in the life saving suits was awesome, what an experience! Lunch buffet was very good, nice choice of dishes. The entire tour was very organized, fun and an unique experience.
We had an incredible time with our guide Sandra. She was really nice and fun. We went in the snow for about 30-40 minutes and then we stopped at a lake to fish and eat. Luckily, we managed to catch perches, while Sandra was starting a fire to grill our sausages. After that we came back. The tour lasts about 4 hours and the experience is really magic + cheap compared to the others. I strongly recommend it !
