    Not really matching the picture and content

    Departure was 1h delayed due to the pick-up of some people. Most of the activities take place at the Santa Claus village. We didn’t get to a reindeer farm, as it was mentioned, but rather just a 1km tour with reindeer’s sleigh at Santa Claus village. The husky tour last less than 5 minutes. We didn’t get to the snowmobile museum. And for a 7hour tour at that price, lunch is not even included. I could have done the same on my own for half the price. The positive note though, we had 2 nice guides.
