the trip is AWESOME. Our guides are Rahul (from spain, hope I spelled it right), another guy from Italy and another from Romania. Snowmobile was a lot fun and they tried to attend everyone's needs. During the trip, we stopped at a hut to eat reindeer soup, hot drinks and cookies. The view along snow mobile and at hut is amazing! we also tried the ice fishing. super patient, friendly, fun and helpful guides!

The only downside is that we had taken a transfer from home and no one ever came to pick us up!!! We had to take a taxi at the last minute to be able to do our excursion!! Small inconvenience also on the best meeting with a loss of time of 30 minutes but the activity is brilliant and we forget everything!!! Lake and forest by snowmobile, fishing, campfire!!! Really you have to go!!!

I would like to thank our dear guides Martin and Jari. It was unforgettable and by far the best day of my life. We rested together with my boyfriend and were completely delighted. We were lucky to go fishing, ride on a frozen lake and see an insanely beautiful forest. Also, we had a wonderful lunch around the campfire. It was very fun, interesting and educational.

Awesome. These guys were awesome. Made me wish I’d booked all my tours with them! The guides were super fun and the snow mobile ride was epic! The views insane and the bbq lunch was delicious. Book this tour - me as a solo - I joined up with another solo and it’s been my favourite tour so far. So thank you team for accepting solo bookings!

Great day, very welcoming guides and would recommend this to anyone!
