Moreover, when you're done with the ride, our guides will take you to the husky farm where you will enjoy one of the most popular Lapland safaris. Rovaniemi husky safari is where you get a chance to meet the adorable Siberian huskies and, if the weather is cool enough, you get to experience once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride the husky sledge in Lappish outdoors.

Would definitely recommend. A compact day tour with fun activities you have to go for in Rovaniemi. Transportation from pickup to drop-off and a lunch buffet were included. The guide (Tina) was really nice and helpful throughout. Overall a very pleasant experience.

My wife and I had a wonderful day with Tina, our tour guide. She picked us up on time early in the morning in a comfortable van and paced the day well to ensure ample time for photos (she helped us take several photos and videos), rest, and eating.

The day included (1) a brief and exciting Husky sledding and greeting experience, (2) a slightly more boring Reindeer experience though we learned a lot about them during this, (3) a quick stop at the Sky Ousnavaara viewing deck to take some awesome photos, and (4) a relaxing walk through Ranua Zoo. A lot of animals were resting but we did get to see some adorable Owls and the Polar Bear. Overall a very enjoyable and memorable tour.

Thanks again to Tina for being such a warm and helpful guide. We hope to visit again soon!

My wife and I LOVED this activity.

Mathias & William were incredibly gracious, knowledgeable and friendly guides, and during our two weeks traveling across the Schengen Area we took MANY tours with MANY guides. They were our favorite by far!
We were retrieved right on time from our hotel (8:20am) and then driven to the Nordic Unique Travels office where we were equipped with low-temp-rated coveralls, warm boots and fur-lined mittens before we set out for the day.
A short time later we were at a site shared between a reindeer farm and a dogsled company and before we knew it we were zooming down some premade dogsled trails behind a team of huskeys! We really enjoyed this part in particular as we're both dog people and they seem to really love doing it. Mathias also took some GREAT videos and shared them.
Right afterwards we were hanging out with our new reindeer friend, Mano, petting and feeding him some snacks. Then we met a second reindeer who pulled us behind him on a sleigh while he was being led along. It wasn't as cool as we expected, but not bad either.
We then drove for a while to a park where Mathias & William led us on a short hike to the highest point in Rovaniemi which used to be a ski slope, and at the top of an old ski-lift tower were some sights to behold just as the sun was rising (~11:00am or slightly thereafter, if I recall correctly). It was a bit cloudy with some snow but it was gorgeous nonetheless!
From there we took a bit of a car ride (around an hour) to the zoo and were treated to a delicious lunch buffet with local fare, interesting beverage choices, and some coffee / tea and a light desert. Afterwards we hiked through the zoo and stopped at each exhibit which took around 2 hours or a little less. I recommend using the restrooms in the restaurant BEFORE you set out, though, b/c the bathrooms around the zoo seem locked during the fall / winter season.
Afterwards we stopped by the local chocolate shop at the zoo to buy some "Fazer" chocolate, and my only regret is not buying MORE!

I think we spent around €16 at the chocolate shop for a decent amount of sweets, but other than that everything was totally inclusive. It might be a little more expensive than some other tours, but the winter gear, private setting (it was only the four of us for a 1:1 guest to guide ratio!), meal, site admissions, transportation, knowledgeable guides & info, and an all day excursion was well worth it in our opinion. I wholeheartedly recommend this company and this activity!

We had such a lovely day today with the husky ride, reindeer ride and zoo visit. The girls who took us went out of their way to make sure we had a great time, especially our 5 year old daughter, who thorough enjoyed every minute of it. We can highly recommend this trip.

First of all guide was very kind and charming person and very helpful.

Husky farm- looked like all herders were busy .. there were few huskies outside whom you can touch and pet them. It felt a bit scary as huskies were literally jumping on you however but later it was charming. They are very energetic and lovely animals. Husky ride was fun but very very short, also 4 people in one sleigh kind of overcrowded..

Reindeer farm- Again herders were not so interested in sharing their experiences or information about reindeer’s. Also they prohibited us to touch them. Obviously if we are visiting a farm, we expect that we get an opportunity to spend some time with the animals and pet them. But no one bothered. Ride was good, slow but good. Reindeer a are quite beautiful and peaceful animal.

Ranua zoo - Had a good time, however buffet in the zoo was worst.. literally worst.

Dear shatakshik2018, Sorry to hear that reindeer and husky farms were really busy, but it is the busiest time of the year for us last days of December. I hope you still enjoy the tour and you had a great time with us! Best regards, Lorenzo , Nordic Unique Travels
