    It was so enjoyable and we were able to explore at a good pace. The main attraction is the zoo visit since the sleigh rides were quite short, but still fun. We were provided a great lunch buffet before starting our zoo visit and we really enjoyed being able to enjoy the zoo at our own pace, with lots of time to take photos. Before the tour ended, we had a short hike up a hill to see a view of Rovaniemi and it was so beautiful. Our tour guide, James, was so kind and friendly and it made a big difference in my enjoyment of our experience. He dropped us off to the train station right after the tour since we were leaving Rovaniemi that day. We really appreciate his going above and beyond for both our safety and our enjoyment of the tour!

    Our guide Linda was superb, jolly and very helpful. The drive was comfortable and the wintery wonderland type scenery awesome. Only hitch was that we were not able to see many animals due to the bad weather. Otherwise it's an activity that's recommended.
