    This was an amazing tour. I loved the snowshoeing. The guide was helpful and knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful! The reindeer were sweet and it was fun to feed them. The ice domes were indescribable. Ensure to wear proper clothing as the temperature is kept very low. It is amazing that people can mold the snow into these beautiful designs to tell stories. The guide was kind and gave some further information on books to read to learn of the Sami people--the theme of the art this year is animals with Sami people in the main entrance. I wish I could go back.

    All good! Departure at the agreed site at the time and travel by bus to the camp where all activities are done. We start with the rackets where it is a walk of about 2.5 hours with a stop to make the fire and eat a couple of sausages. The landscape is spectacular and the guide is very friendly explaining various themes of the flora of the place. Then you visit the Ice Dome (impressive work in doing the hotel). A highly recommended experience to do

    Every part was great. The snowshoeing was great experience, the area around was amazing and we had a bonfire in the forest. The staff was super friendly and helpful and moreover they gave us some tips for surviving. I would prefer to have the snowshoeing experience for some time more, since it is a trip based in snowshoeing, but I understand that there are several different people in the team and this makes the things more complicated. However, the Ice Domes Hotel was something really unique. It totally worth it! The experience with the reindeers was just ok, since they are wild animals and not so friendly. Moreover it was too dark to see them clearly. As a combination, it is a very good combo and I definitely recomment it.
