We recently did this tour and it exceeded all our expectations, from the time we were picked up to the very end. It was not at all difficcult, even in deep snow, (thanks to boots and clothes provided) we meandered our way through pristine white powder snow amongst the tall pine,

We’ve made the Korouma Frozen Waterfalls tour. The experience was really authentic! Our guide, Braulio, was prepared, kind, a very good guide. The tour was a walk about 7 km around the frozen waterfalls, the panorama was great. A suggest this experience!

We had the opportunity to join a team for a daily walk to korouma falls, everything was perfect i strongly suggest to attend this tour. Braulio, our guide, is really kind and prepared, he drove us to the location and gave everyone who need useful advice about exposition,

I did this tour on the cusp of Autumn/Winter, when there was hardly any snow. I believe this tour isn't worth running in these conditions. Tour group was small, a husband & wife who were rebooked from a cancelled tour, one was an amateur photographer, and me at a professional

Hi there, Thank you for taking time reviewing our tour and sharing your thoughts with us! I’m very sorry that our photography tour did not fill out your expectations. It is a bit hard to remember this case exactly as your comments come over 1 year later, but clearly the location and Lappish nature we have here in Rovaniemi area was something you didn’t find inspiration in your photos. Explore the Wilderness – photography tour has been our number one daytime photography tour and has been operated already over 3 years. Have to say this is the first time the location and the nature here in Rovaniemi didn’t satisfy. In our mind whole tour represents best elements of southern Lapland including; wild running river with bridge, Nordic forest, swamp area, top of the fell sightseeing spot, rocky shoulders from time of the ice age, natural springs and many other. I’m surprised that you didn’t find anything to photograph with all this around you. Maybe it was something else you were looking for. We run the tour all year round because of 8 seasons of Lapland and as there are always something different to photograph in the Arctic nature. Last winter snow came very late (beginning of December) and unfortunately there is nothing we can do for this fact. In that, I totally understand your frustration in this feedback if you were looking to get some wintertime photos. During last Autumn we were honest with the fact of snowless winter and informed our guests joining the tours about it and that the locations are not looking as magical as they are with the full snow cover normally that time of the year. I’m very sorry if you had not been informed about this fact or didn’t know this before travelling to Lapland. The tour schedule is built so that during the winter we have all the possible day light available for photography. Here in the Arctic day last only around 4-5 hours and we must use whole this time to get best out of the light conditions. This is the reason the tour is scheduled between 9-14, to be able to reach the location at the time of the sunrise at 10am. I’m sorry that our tour didn’t fill out your expectations and you did not enjoy the Lappish nature that time of the year. I wish you all the best in your future travels!

Markus our guide also uses the Sony DSLR camera as we did which is very helpful. Gentle hike up the hill and climbed up a viewing hut where we had wide views of the land. Many photographic hotspots. At the end of the hike, Markus set up the fire at the BBQ site and thats where
