Parmi toutes les activités que nous avons fait à Rovaniemi, celle-ci était pour nous la meilleure. Les animaux sont très bien traités, les paysages étaient magnifiques et la balade était bien relaxante. La pause déjeuner à mi-chemin était la bienvenue avec de bonnes saucisses et des explications intéressantes sur les rennes.

Our party of 4 booked this combined tour early April. The weather was perfect, with fresh snow and bright blue sky. Our guide, Jordi, was very friendly and always ready to help and even sent us pictures and videos of our activities. We highly recommend this tour.

Everything was excellent, although it would be nice if the husky ride was longer, it lasted two minutes and it was time to compete, they growled with another ear. The guide was very attentive, they referred us to the house and returned us at the end of the tour

A very nice and unforgettable experience! The guides were all super nice and cool. Very cozy little huts to warm up in between. Husky and reindeer sleigh ride a bit short but a very nice snowmobile tour.

Its very nice activities. Must try at least once in your lifetime
