    Superb experience. The guide was great, and started by showing us a beautiful snowy spot before taking us to the reindeer farm. We also had a very nice lunch (which we didn't think would count). Very nice experience with the huskies! Only downside: the time in the village of Santa Claus was in our opinion a bit long, and at the end we were turning a bit in circles.

    A good experience. The sleds are short distance but run very well. We did the husky park and reindeer park tour with the guide, then in Santa Claus village we were without a guide and of course our guide was very good. They picked us up from our cottage. In all it went well.

    fun to do. Very expensive. We did not want to ride the reindeer sleigh out of respect for the animals even if the farmer is a fan of his animals. The dog sled ride is excellent. We feel that animals like to run. Small downside in terms of organization: we were not warned to take tickets to meet Santa Claus suddenly we did not meet him. Remember to take a ticket because the appointment can be up to four hours later.
