If you like dogs 100% worth it. We had time to cuddle with the dogs. They were really friendly and energetic they jumped but didnt hurt us. The guide was professional and friendly she answered everything properly. We got a fish soup, hot drinks, cookies, and cake. We got clothing and we had a fire it was around -10 degrees but I didnt felt it. Really recommended even that we didnt see the northern lights just for a little bit.

Super good experience. The day was beautiful-cold but clear skies! The group was small and everyone was friendly. The guide was knowledgeable and had a very nice sense of humor. The hike he chose was beautiful and good for lively pics.

Excellent tour. We snowshoed for about 2 hours. It was a bit physical at first but then got used to it. The landscape is stunning. After the tour we had a hot chocolate and saw the huskies. Highly recommended.

Spectacular to go with children, mine from 9 and 11, tranquility, dream landscapes and super friendly guides, they explain everything, from animal tracks to any detail, recommended.

We really enjoyed the walk and our guide was fantastic, communicative and engaged in informing us about everything in our surroundings.
