Before leaving, the tour group was prepared to take a break from the snow boots. Thanks to that, there was no freezing during the tour. I walked about 40 minutes to the south. At the station, the guide gave a basic explanation about オーロラ.またまたたなななかななたたたがれれたたしたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたした!」 The opinion was in agreement, so we decided to continue further south. .The guide checked to see if there was an ourora.た。 then the オーロラが began to be seen, 皆も車からますてててててちきちす, and I was able to see the beautiful オーロラをますます!臨機応変しししますしますしますしてしなさなさなさててまてまてまてめずず走り回てんたたくさん 写真 写真 届き た。 で カメラ を を 持っ て き て 撮ろ う と し て て た も まし が 、 、 プロ プロ 持っ ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド さん さん 絶対 絶対 楽 楽。 ツアー し おすすめ ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます おすすめ おすすめ おすすめ おすすめEven if the price is a little high, I think the quality of the tour is definitely worth it.

Experience that I recommend to anyone, both for the competence and sympathy of the guides (an Italian boy, a French and a German), and for the incredible place where they accompanied us: a kota tent surrounded by nature far from the city. They showed us and explained how to light the fire, to then have an evening picnic based on frankfurters, marshmallows and hot drinks… Unfortunately, no northern lights that evening, but it was still beautiful.

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.

The best sauna I've ever been to. The sauna, the pond and the food are all unquestionably good. And the guides are very friendly. I visited alone, but had a great time chatting with the other guests and jumping in the pond with them. If I ever go to Rovaniemi, I would like to do this sauna tour again. Thank you so much from Japan.

The guide Alex was great, told interesting stories and was interested in the group. Hotel pickup, warm clothes and shoes. The trip was very interesting, I recommend it to everyone.
