Excellent experience!
Feb 2021
Awesome experience! The tour was very well-organized and really worth the price. We enjoyed every second of it! The guide was very friendly and explained to us a lot of things about Kiruna, the snowmobiles and the Sami life. It was our first time driving a snowmobile but we were given clear instructions and we had lots of fun! The landscapes are breathtaking. Also, lunch was provided at a cosy cabin in the middle of the woods. The guide lighted up a fire so we could be warm. Lunch was a tasty salmon soup with cheese bread and lingonberry tea. Delicious! We highly recommend this tour.

Paid with no tour given

Had the most disappointing and shocking experience with Kiruna Guidetour. Rarely do I write reviews; this is my first one-star tour.

Due to a medical emergency could not attend the tour, so I asked to change the date of the tour. They said all other tours were 'full', hence date could not be changed. Later switched the story to their supposed no-cancellation policy.

It's fine to apply a no-cancellation policy to people who no-show without informing prior and without good reason. I had a valid reason and was willing to go on any other tour available during my time. Utter lack of understanding or basic human kindness! Was I supposed to be able to predict 1 week before that a medical emergency would occur on the day itself?

The tour was worth close to 150 USD/more than £100.

Safe to say, I will not be booking with this company in the future.

Pleasant experiences
My husband and I booked their snowmobile tour, aurora Colosseum tour and dog sled tour. The experiences were really fun, and the guides were all so lovely, very attentive to the guests, experts at what they do and great conversationalists. One of the drivers agreed to drop us off at a different location, which we appreciated. The insulated suits they provide were also super helpful in battling the -20°c cold. While lunch was provided, it wasnt much to fill the stomach, so do have a heavy meal before you go on the tours.

AMAZING
Jan 2020
We went on the Snowmobile Artic adventure and Aurora Colosseum tours. They were excellent.
The company provides you with all the neccessary outdoor clothing: overalls, gloves, socks,boots, balaclava.
Everything about the trip is planned with the customers health, safety and enjoyment as priority.
Our guides were Lucien (sorry if I have spelt this incorrectly) and My. Both were very attentive and lovely.
Before the tour started they give advice and demonstration on how to ride the snow mobile and then we had a trial run on the snow mobiles to check everyone was happy.
Lucien led the tour on the snow mobile and regularly stopped to check everyone was ok.
By the time we got to the lunch hut, I was suffering mild hypothermia (I always feel the cold). Lucien looked after me and used good first aid techniques to get me well again. He was very attentive and caring.
The lunch was lovely-firstly hot vitamin, loganberry juice, followed by warm cheese sandwiches and fish soup. Unfortunately my husband does not eat cheese-there was no alternative option which was a minor disappointment.
The tour back, reached perfection as we saw reindeer crossing in front of us.
We went on the Aurora Colosseum tour that night. When we went back to the tour office that night, we found that My was taking the tour. She remembered that I had got hypothermic during the day tour and found me a super warm pair of boots. It was lovely that she took time to remember and care to avoid me getting extremely cold again.
We did get to see the Northern lights which was great. We enjoyed My's company and that of the 2 ladies who decided to sleep over in the Igloos.
All in all a fantastic trip to remember. THANK YOU.

Just a tip to people who use the heat pad warmers (hands, body and feet)-we brought several of these with us. In the temperatures of minus 28 they didn't work! It is better to put them on before you go out in the extreme cold temperatures so that heat activates them. I did this for the night tour and then had warm hands and feet.

Great experience
We were in this area last winter and did the snowmobile article adventure then. Enjoyed it so much we came back. It's still great. The group was small and the guide knowledgeable and attentive. He told us loads about the natural environment. The lunch was light but very tasty. We were out just over 4 hours and went about 30km. A great day out!

Snowmobile experience
Dec 2019
We really enjoyed our snowmobile adventure. After booking I contacted the company to arrange transfers to and from our hotel which was easily sorted through e-mail. We were collected from our hotel by our lovely guide who was very friendly and put us at ease. As I was nervous about driving she reassured me that we would have a practise session before leaving. We were given warm clothes and helmets to wear and then shown one of the snowmobiles and explained how to switch it on/off, accelerate/brake and how we would signal to slow down or stop.
Once this was done we were taken out to our snowmobiles and our guide watched each of us start our snowmobiles to ensure we knew what to do properly. Once we had all started we drove to the practise track (a circular track) and each driver took turns so we all knew how to start/stop and steer safely.
As we had to cross a road to get on the trail our guide went to each of us and told us how we would do that safely before heading off.
Throughout the tour we would stop if there was anything to see (we saw mother of pearl cloud and reindeer) we stopped on a frozen lake and in the woods as our guide showed us some lichen on the trees, so we had plenty of opportunities to change drivers.
We then stopped off and had our lunch and our guide told us about the sami people and the reindeer. It was then a short drive back where we returned our gear and were transported back to our hotel.
We both really enjoyed the experience and I was happy the guide encouraged me to try driving as I ended up really enjoying it.
