We have a amazing experience, the entire team is super attentive, making the experience unforgettable. We did several tours, one better than the other, but be prepared because the cold is intense.

Just wow! Got to try snowshoes (surprisingly easy) as well as no snow shoes (impossibly hard) and met some lovely folk with an absolutely incredible guide by the name of Malcolm Hanks. Malcolm was a natural with the three youngsters on the tour (my 9 year old son thought he was great) and just made the day really special. The barbecue was surprisingly impressive - fish soup, sausages, berry juice and marshmallows all done on the fire (along with corn cobs for my vegetarian son). All round great experience which just made us want to go back as soon as possible.

Had a fantastic trip with Malcolm. He adapted to us really well ...my stepdaughter is very fit and I am less so. I never thought learning some survival skill could be so interesting. Malcolm is ex military and very experienced. He made this a very memorable trip....the forest he took us to was so silent and beautiful. Well worth it....worth asking for Makcolm.

Nice and short hiking into the woods with a lot of snow and amazing views. Our guide Sarka is really helpful and funny, we enjoy our tour a lot. They also make hot tea, salmon soup, and nice sausages.

I and my friend (2 women) booked 5 days winter experience in Pello, Finland. We were very looking forward as the itinerary was written pretty well. We're experienced travelers, very active and want to use every moment to enjoy fully. We paid 1'535 Eur per person, which was basically 383.75 Eur per day per person - 4 full days and 4 nights.

1. Food Quality
We got the cheapest option of the food. First lunch was a form of a buffet, cheap quality, we couldn’t really have a normal soft drinks or tea without paying extra. 2 breakfast and 2 lunches in Pello were pretty ok. Lunch not provided last day with the comment that we were supposed to have lunch in Pello but it didn’t take place as we went to Rovaniemi. BBQ sausages, 1 corn and 1 soup were not sufficient food for our days but we understand how BBQ works.

2. Activities
Husky ride on the first day took 2 mins and nobody told us about huskies at all. There were supposed to be 100 huskies and their puppies. This was a Husky Farm in Santa Klaus village. We complained and asked for the proper husky ride. We were not sure for almost 24 hours whether we get it but in the end our guide organized it. Husky ride took then 1 hour and this was the best experience for us in Lapland. However, for such price and as there are not that many things to do in Lapland, we expected to have the husky visit and husky ride for a half day.
Other activities – snowshoeing and ice fishing were pretty good. However, there was 1 activity planned per day and it took max. 3 hours. There were no other plans to see or to do. As we enjoy fully vacation and want to see and experience as much as we can, we suggested to go to Ice castle, Ice Restaurant, small snow resort in Sweden. Our guide took us there.
Reindeer Farm was great.
Snowmobiling sleigh ride was great.

3. Alone in Lapland
We expected we would spend some time with other people, other tourists who booked the same trip. We spent all days in Lapland on our own. Us two plus our guide. However, there were other people (we met another group with different guide). At least we could have spent BBQs with them. It was pretty boring.

4. Hotels
We were supposed to be accommodated in 3 stars hotel. We ended up in low quality hotel in Pello, it was rated as 2 stars hotel according to booking.com. We were accommodated in the camp in Rovaniemi – a cottage with 4 rooms with other people. Our room had 3 double beds (one over the other)! This was too much!! We asked for 3 stars hotel and refused to sleep there. Our guide couldn’t organize it with her boss. We wanted to speak with him and he called us. I was so angry and had to even scream, as he didn’t want to give us 3 stars hotel. It was during our last activity (snowmobiling ride), you can imagine how this was spoiling our time. He called us after circa 1 hour and apologized and gave us 3starts hotel in Rovaniemi. As we had to go back and forth to the camp and our flight was too early, we slept there 3 hours.

You can imagine how we were complaining and felt during our stay in Lapland. We would expect for such money a high service and I have to say that I wouldn’t recommend Tourradar to anyone after this experience. There were better activities, longer ones, which could be included in that trip.

Lesson learned: We will never book such trip through the agency!

Recommendation for Finland Lapland experience: Go on your own, organize a car and hotels and book activities directly with Huskies farms, Reindeer farms and book just some activities through agencies - snowmobiles, 1BBQ, etc. Then you're free to travel more to the North or wherever you want if the place you chose was not the best choice.

Hello, Stanka1512! Thank you for your feedback. Firstly, we are sorry for the negative aspects of your experience in Lapland. We are considering every detail of your description. The standards of the food provided along our programmes are based on the Lappish cuisine and traditions. The BBQ at the fireplace is normally sausages, corn and/or soup. However, we understand that the amount of food offered may not be enough occasionally, therefore your feedback will be used for us to discuss potential improvements on this matter. Also, we may consider changes in the dynamic of the lunch and change, for instance, BBQ to restaurant or find out more options for restaurants. Regarding the number of people in the groups, it depends on the demand for the programme on a certain day. There are chances for both larger groups and exclusive tours to occur. If another group was seen at some point during your programme, there is a high probability that the other group was enjoying another programme. In order to double check and repair any inconvenience related to hospitality, we kindly ask you which day and which hotel you were in Pello. Therefore, we will be able to understand what went wrong - the hotel description on Tourradar website or the booking process itself. Thank you for giving us positive feedback on our services as well. Best regards

We booked this half day snowshoe activity at Nordic Unique Travels. Malk was a brilliant guide, organized a nice walk in the forest and showed a lot of technique about snowshoe hiking. At the end of the hike, we had a very good campfire experience.
I highly recommend the trip and Malk as a guide!
