    The overall trip was very organised, the instructor had good knowledge of what he is doing. He was able to instruct us very well how to handle the snowmobile. Their office is easily accessible, right opposite to santa claus village. But its stops being touristy and crowded the moment you start you snowmobile ride. Beautiful trails. They also organise snow gears, gloves and shoes. Also make sure you have all the items you need for the trip. Really loved the experience. i would highly recomend.

    Amazing experience, highlight recommend. Actually got to drive the snowmobile for around 2 hours through beautiful powder snow. Company provided friendly guide and good equipment (although I preferred to wear my own clothes) and offered good value for money. Would recommend.

    This is one of the best experiences I’ve tried in Rovaniemi during day time and I’m so glad that i took the chance to join. I was so nervous about the cold but the thermal clothing were surprisingly so warm. You hardly feel the cold at all and the handle of snowmobile is also heated while you ride. It was fantastic experience. Last but not least, Lennert from Wild Nordic, our guide is super nice and warm and very attentive. Considering he has to do this everyday to entertain the tourist, he still shows alot of professionalism and being attentive and guiding and taking your pictures. I feel safe being guided by him and most of all, he’s done a GREAT job. I love him and i encourage everyone to try this experience, it’s safe and super fun.
