    Super nice guide lady!!! Told/explained a lot. It was all very interesting. Very well organized and timed. Husky sled ride and reindeer farm were super fun. The farm was beautiful, warm, clean and cozy areas everywhere to bridge SHORT waiting times. Visiting a viewpoint on Rovaniemi with a 10 minute walk through a very nice park was also great. The zoo was incredibly beautiful, despite -20 degrees we saw a lot of animals and even warmed up by a campfire. Lunch on site was delicious with lots of choice and free drinks. Afterwards, the souvenir shop could also be visited in peace. Moderate prices and a nice selection. The rides in the van were very pleasant.

    ..we were a small group and we were the first to do the husky sled ride in the moonlight and it was very exciting .. Mattias made beautiful photos and videos on all occasions. The ride with the reindeer I would have preferred to do it off the trail but it was a nice experience anyway. The walk up to the lookout was wonderful. Interesting zoo and Mattias was thoughtful taking us everywhere.

    After a very very poor organizational management 48 hours and 24 hours before D-Day, finally the day went very well, especially thanks to the guide (Sarka) who is very nice, super nice, very good company and to the little ones care. It is an experience to do during his visit to Rovaniemi. Attention for solo travelers ask for confirmation to join a group. Many thanks to Sarka!
