Very good guides all young guys who speak English. Unfortunately we didn't see the northern lights but still had a nice snowmobile sleigh ride to a frozen lake where we waited but sadly it was cloudy in the meantime we were offered hot juice and biscuits and one of the guides told us about the northern lights. On the way back it was a bit of a roller coaster, personally I found it fun anyway.

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.

activité préférée de notre séjour, sensation incroyable d'être aux "commandes" du traîneau à travers forêts et grandes étendues enneigées, accueil chaleureux, les chiens sont hypers gentils et vifs, à refaire...

très chouette expérience dans des décors de rêves, endroit reculé et navette de transport très bien, Rennes très doux et gourmands l'ambiance dans le tipi avec le feu était super, guide au top
