        Lovely experience!
        It was a lovely tour with very friendly guides! The reindeers were so sweet. We loved it very much. Although quite expensive and short.

        Cold but enjoyable experience
        Amazing experience for us and older children. They woods we drove through were magical and the guides were supportive. It’s a shame that our younger children felt cold in a sledge and had to be taken back to the bus to wait for us. They were well looked after and given a drink and a snack.

        An amazing experience. Well organised with a very knowledgeable tour guide. We had a good group size with only 8 of us. The waterfalls and surrounding national park were stunning and well worth a visit.

        Magical reindeer experience
        The reindeer experience was great and in a magical setting. The reindeer guide was also very knowledgeable. The experience isn’t that long though and the transport pick up timings were a little inefficient.

        Don't go!!!!
        The tour was very misleading, they just dropped us in a place and gave us food and did not try to even educate us at all regarding the lights or change locations. Completely disrespectful towards all these people who spent all this money. Zero effort. I regret spending money on this tour. Extremely dissapponting

        Memorable moment
        Was on a hunting Northern lights with lappish barbecue tour on 24 Jan 2024. Despite the cloudy conditions in the beginning, we managed to catch the Northern light subsequently. Special mentioned to Gigi, Alvaro and Clemence who were the tour guides and driver for the night. We have an excellent time together hunting for the Northern light and a delicious lappish barbecue. Gigi is very knowledgeable and professional in explaining on the phenomenon of Northern light. Thank you to Nordic Unique Travel for a well organised tour.

        A day well spent
        Booked for a 3 event excursion. Husky sledge, reindeer sledge and snow shoe hiking. Out of these 3 the best and must try is the snow shoe hiking. It was really fun stepping into thick snow and away from the normal hiking path. We did also enjoy hot blueberry tea and ginger bread at the top of the view point. The husky and reindeer sledge for me was not a wow factor. More on just an experience. Big shoutout to our guide, Miquel. He was really good at explaining and friendly to approach

        Rip-off
        Attention, absolute rip-off! In the description, the entire route is given with 25-30km. We recorded the route with three different devices. The result: 3.72 km The service was good and the guides were nice. We got the promised hot drink, but no gingerbread.

      What an amazing experience! Booked the Northern Lights and barbecue tour from Rovaniemi and had a car pick us up from our stay. Did not want to get our hopes high for the night as it was not guaranteed that we will see the Northern Lights. We had a great time from the pick up, Lukáš was very nice and very friendly, answered all our questions and even told us a few stories about the aurora borealis. The other people in the car were also lovely and it was such a nice atmosphere, listening to Christmas songs on the way through the frozen trees.

      We were taken to a frozen lake, about 40 min away from the city and as soon as we got there along with the other cars ( there were at least 50 people in total) we all rushed to the lake aaaand then we saw them. THE NORTHERN LIGHTS. First time I saw them and could not believe it! It was incredible. Just amazing you could cry.
      We struggled to take pictures with our phones, luckily we had Claudia (part of the team) who was the star of the night! Everyone got a picture with the Northern Lights, she was making sure we were all happy with them and just giving us all a good vibe despite the freezing cold.

      We then went to our teepee and enjoyed a lovely barbecue, we had pork sausages and Lappish bread, salmon soup, hot blueberry drinks and even marshmallows to toast over the open fire.

      The whole Nordic Unique Travels team was absolutely outstanding and they made sure we were warm (also providing us with overalls and boots) and happy with everything, kudos to Claudia and Lukáš who were just amazing, thank you guys for making this tour so much more enjoyable!! ☺️ After the trip we all went out to a bar and had some drinks to celebrate the night of course, such an amazing time meeting new people from around the world and sharing experiences.

      I cannot recommend this enough, I believe we were lucky to have a clear night therefore more chances to see the Northern Lights. If you go to Lapland, you have to get in touch with Nordic Unique Travels, there are so many tours to choose from, I regret not going on another one but didn't have much time. Next time!!

      Thank you guys again, this was such a memorable experience!

      When I booked this trip, I hesitated due to negative reviews, and unfortunately, they were accurate. Despite the unfavorable weather—snowing and cloudy—Miguel, the person in charge, proceeded with the tour instead of postponing it. Tour guide Pauline, upon checking weather apps, confirmed the impossibility of seeing the northern lights. It's baffling to offer a tour under such weather conditions without alternatives. We paid $125 each only to have two sausages with ketchup and mustard. However, credit to Pauline for her sweet and friendly demeanor, although the decision wasn't hers.

      Dear George B, Thank you for your review. However, since we don't have Pauline in our team, and our tour you chose when reviewing is not with the price indicated in your description as well, would you please kindly help check for us if you have indeed attended our tour, and not other suppliers? We appreciate your kind assistance. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have further questions. Warm regards, Nordic Unique Travels

      Booked through the chat on their website a few hours before the tour starts, they are responsive but forgot to mention that the tour that I was interested in was not offered until when I saw the price difference on the payment link. Also, they didn’t inform me when they changed the pick-up time until I contacted through the chat on the website and WhatsApp. Anyway, the guide, Romain did pick me though a little late. Romain was friendly and nice in explanations, appreciated the effort he made in getting the camera settings. Though we didn’t see the visible northern lights, Romain managed to capture them in the picture.

      When we booked this activity, the description never mentioned that there could be 40 people including small children in the same group. It was very crowded, chaotic and not chill. Too much focus on the barbecue and not enough on the "hunting". In fact there was no hunting, we just stood in the same place the whole 3 hours. We were lucky to be able to see a faint Northern light, which made the night a little better. All and all, not what we expected at all, and we would recommend checking the size of the group before reserving, and spending a little extra too book a small group tour.

      We can not see northern lights because of the weather but it’s not the reason of the note.
      The organisation was a little poor. We arrived about 20minutes before the start of the activity and we were wainting inside the agency as we were asked but we were phoned by one of the guide to known where we were….
      We were a big group (about 50 persons), a bus was necessary to drive us to the bbq location.
      We were dispatched in group by language in the tepee.
      Even if the weather was not propitious to northern lights the guides did not provide explanations about how the northern lights are created and we were most of the time inside the tepee than outside to try to « hunt » the northern lights. Finally we were « hunting the sausage ».

      Dear Coralie, Thank you for your kind feedback. Since it's high season in Lapland during this period, there are many tourists traveling here, and normally the group sizes are bigger. Sorry for making you wait for the other customers, and we have been always trying our best to beter take care of all customers despite of possible bigger groups. Basically our guides check aurora activities and weather conditions before the tour departures for better locations, but thank you for kindly understanding Northern Lights depend on nature, so it can't be guaranteed. We appreciate your time for the review, and hopefully next time we would bring better service for you. Warm regards, Nordic Unique Travels Team

      The tour guide Lynne was very very good. Lynne kept the group alive, enthusiastic and energised throughout. Her knowledge on Finnish and Lapland history and explanations on northern lights were all very expressive and interesting. Highly recommended tour guide for sure.

      The start of the tour at the Nordic Unique Travels office was chaotic when several tour guides were trying to herd their respective tour group. Signs for each departure time and language would have helped for the respective tourist to stand near their respective signs perhaps?

      Our tour guides Clement and Tommazo were very friendly and welcoming, they were taking care of us and chatting with us on the way to the base and while we were there! Clement's photography skills were amazing and he captured many amazing photos of us. He is quite humorous and nice! Tommazo is also a very lovely guide, he is funny and chatty, he was also kept making barbecue food for us.
      It was a very enjoyable and awesome time! Highly recommended!

      It was a very good activity, Joey (the tour guide) picked us up at 19h as expected, we went for a small bbq, beautiful spot, good food. Then we went to 5 diferentes places around rovaniemi, lakes, rivers, etc. For 3/4 hours we tried to find them but we had no luck. Joey Gave us all the information about how to find northern lights in the future and provided sources as well.

      Despite the difficulties of the coronavirus pandemic, we could enjoy a unic experience in a very safe manner. Most of the time we spend in the open air, and the transportation to the places was done in a very big Van what ensure safety distances and of course mask were used all the time.
      Matías was our guide, and he highly contributed to the fun of the activity. We were very lucky to spot some norther lights but even if we wouldn’t have been, the experience was worthy. The landscapes and the Lappish barbecue experience was unforgettable, and we also had the chance to learn about Northen Lights.

      Our guide was Matias Gaitán, he took us to Vikajarvi where we could see the Northern Lights really well. Also, we had a great lapish bbq near the lake.

      We went there without any expectation but Matias always lift our spirit up!

      We had a great experience and we hope we could do it again! (:
