If you are looking for an activity whilst looking /waiting for the northern lights... this is it. 50 minute drive to the remote location is worth it. Ski mobiles were all in good condition. Whilst there was no promise of the Northern Lights. This excursion gave us several chances to observe them with the exhilaration of driving through the woods across lakes and over hills in between. Warming up around the fire in the Tee Pee topped it off.

We had a fantastic trip with a guide called Sebastien. We've been lucky to be just the 4 of us and to observe wonderful northern lights. It is definitely better than the other agencies in Rovaniemi as they drive you really far from the city and it lights.

Cannot fault these guys. Amazing trip!
Our guide, Sami, came and picked us up from the front door or our apartment and took us to the main office to get changed into suitable Winter gear. We then drove out of the city. We took snowmobiles out in the forest and across a frozen, snowy lake. We stopped a few times and at the last stop had a Lappish BBQ in a teepee. We were very lucky and saw some spectacular Northern Lights. Sami was lovely and very knowledgeable. Excellent company. Communication was very good. Would definitely use again. Thank you so much for an amazing first day!

Pros: great snowmobile guide (forgot his name), snowmobiling was mad fun and a great experience.
Cons: promised two hours of snowmobiling, barely had an hour. Left us waiting for ten minutes with no explanation in the cold.

Overall a nice experience, but given the amount we paid not worth it sadly.

Even though, we were the only two people who booked it, the company did not cancel the trip.
Our tour guide was Andreas and he is super nice, knowledgable, polite, welcoming person. The tour was long enough to enjoy driving. He really took us to amazing spots. The sky was cloudy, we were not lucky with the lights. But, Andreas did his best for us to enjoy the tour. He shared lots of knowledge regarding the region and auroras. Thanks again, Andreas!

The company picked me up at my hotel (they are listed on the site when you make the booking), so the transfers were easy as can be. From there you are transported to their cabin roughly an hour away, in order to stay away from the lights of the city. Once we hopped off the bus, coincidentally, the Northern Lights happen to haze behinds the treelines, so early on we were quite lucky.

Next, my Snowmobile guide showed up and let me saddle up and drive the machine myself. You take a practice lap around, to ensure you know how to handle the gas powered ride, and then you are off through the woods! Most of the other tourists trek up the mountain side (if that's the expedition they chose), however, on the snowmobile, you are zipping through the dark forest and over frozen lakes and rivers. It is an absolute thrill! For someone who's never lived by the snow, this is the way to go. The snowmobiles are easy to use/drive, and the guide never leaves you behind. Top notch.

From the end of the ride, we parked atop a lone hill top with nothing distracting you from the sky. The guide explains a lot of details history and stories of the Northern Lights, all the while, you are hoping to catch a glimpse (so much depends on solar activity). Sure enough, with about 15-20 minutes to spare, there is a brief haze, and then a "spark" of the lights glaring across the sky! So beautiful. Once in a lifetime, and totally worth it. Truly a blessed sighting and vacation.

Afterwards, we snowmobile back to the cabin, where everyone is gathered, and we load the bus up to head back to our separate hotels.

Once in a lifetime view/trip (assuming you don't live there, haha).

We had an amazing experience!! We were very lucky because we were alone with our super friendly guide Jaume. It was one of the best nights I've ever had! We saw the Northern Lights right at the beginning of our more than 3 hour drive through the snowy forest - MAGICAL!!!!

We had a fun night out driving a snowmobile even though we were not lucky enough to see northern lights during the tour. Our tour guides have been locals from the Rovaniemi area and they did everything to ensure that we have a great experience and fun!

The snowmobile tour was so much fun and it was absolutely magical. We drove through the snowy forest and stopped at several open areas, to try to observe the Aurora. It was a very clear night and the stars were breathtaking. We even saw the milky way. The Auroras weren't so active so we saw a faint green glow, not more than that. Then we had a campfire and roasted food on it. They were very generous. Our guide Jenna was the best! The bus had broken heater so we were a bit cold on the way back to the hotel. Otherwise it was amazing experience! Thank you so much for the wonderful time!

We were lucky enough to have Jay as our tour guide on this trip, a funny, energetic, responsible and knowledgeable bloke. This was our first time on snowmobiles and chasing northern lights. It was nice that Jay was so caring for us to experience the northern lights , insofar as to make many pitstops and wait just that little bit longer. We unfortunately didn't catch a glimpse but boy were we close.
All all a fantastic experience from start to finish and Jay should be commended for that.
