        Go go snow
        This was amazing but so much harder than it looks! We met at the main office, just five minutes from our hotel, and changed into ski suits, balaclavas, gloves. We were then taken by coach for about 30 minutes away from the town centre (where most seem to do snow mobiles) to a site opposite Santa's Village. We were given helmets and full instructions. Really didn't realise how heavy these machines are. My daughter and I could not make them turn once the skis were in the grooves of snow. Husband had no trouble. My son is a motorbike rider and it took him a little practice to turn the handlebars fully and not lean - once he got this we were off! Fabulous scenery, so peaceful (despite the engine), ride is about 30 minutes which is plenty. At the end hot berry juice and biscuits which were very welcome before the ride home. Would totally recommend this trip and this company - absolutely brilliant.

        Sleighed by Reindeer
        Fabulous trip - we travelled in a small group and met others at the Reindeer Park. The keepers were knowledgeable and friendly. The ride is quite short but really doesn't need to be any longer. The Reindeer all have different personalities and behave like cats on catnip when offered their favourite treat of a specific type of moss. The trip was followed by hot tea/coffee and a local biscuit treat together with being awarded our reindeer licences. The area around the park is absolutely stunning and worthy of photos on its own.

        Did we or didn't we????
        Fabulous trip, so well looked after. We travelled by warm coach and were divided into three small groups to sit in the tents around a blazing fire. Served lots of sausages to toast over the fire, salmon soup which was delicious, marshmallows to toast all washed down with hot berry juice. Guides were informative and entertaining. Northern lights did not show so we moved on to another venue. -22C on a frozen lake. Again unlucky, however, we did notice a pale glow in the sky and decided to take photos. Once home and uploaded to a computer we can see a streak of green across the sky - so they did show but only just, but we'll take it as a 50% win! Guides and driver so hard for us and even stayed out three hours longer.

        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.

        Fast tracks but no driving in deep snow
        Very friendly and helpful guide, Nicole! Pros: - fast tracks - good gear Cons: - no driving in deep snow (all prepared snowmobile tracks) - price (tourist-pricing) - no lockers in changing room

        Jerry was really nice. First there was a short talk about reindeer while we drank hot berry juice and ate cinnamon rolls by the fire. The sleigh ride was really fun.

        Thanks to Euan for leading us to see the aurora. He also explained to everyone the legends of the northern lights while we were waiting for the beautiful aurora to come.

        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.

        Great BBQ but need a lot of luck to see Aurora
        Great BBQ outside of town but haven't seen any Aurora even though we had clear sky. That's just bad luck. The team has done the best they could and stayed out with us until 11 pm.

        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

      Hello traveler,

      Please don’t think I’m the typical psycho who’s giving a bad reference just because. Just facts.

      I will strongly recommend to you not to pick tours with thins agency.

      They are not serious. It’s internal policy is to do overbooking on purpose so is someone cancels they still having the tours fully booked.

      So, what happens if people doesn’t cancel? They will reschedule you to another day or hour during the same day. Why is this a problem?

      Because if you have other activities already booked you won’t be able to make in time for both
      You might not have days left and you will end up leaving without doing the tour.

      We booked two activities with them, Husky tour and Snomobile tour. The husky tour got cancelled with a weird explanation. The Snowmobile was reschedule to a different hour making us to loose another tour.

      Please, don’t waste your money and precious travel time with this agency. You might be lucky and you won’t be reschedule or cancelled but I talked to other customers is was the same for them! It’s worthy to pay a little bit more and pick the tours with Wild about Lapland for example.

      Trust me traveler, I’M BEING FULLY HONEST!!

      This activity is not worth the money at all. Thinking back on it I feel ripped off big time.

      The husky ride is shorter than a cigarette break at work.
      How can you charge 180 euros for this?

      “10 min husky ride, maybe you’ll see aurora if you’re lucky is a better title.”

      We took a 50 min drive to arrive to a husky farm where a sleigh with excited dogs was waiting for us. As it turned out we weren’t gonna learn to drive ourselves and had to sit with 5 in a narrow sleight for a husky ride that lasted about 10-15 minutes where the driver stopped for few seconds and turned of the lights to look for aurora (it was cloudy so we needed a little luck to see it). And that was it… A 10 min ride and a 2 second stop to “hunt aurora”. After that we got to see the dogs get fed and ask some questions to the very nice owners. We took some pictures and then had “bbq” (simple hotdog sausage and slice of bread) in the tipi only to rush back to the car to drive 50 min back.

      I can’t really say this is an actual aurora hunting activity. We were lucky to see it shortly, after the 15 min ride. But after that there really wasn’t any effort to go look for it at all. It really cuts the activity short.

      I realize it was a cloudy day and the conditions were not ideal, but even then you should have a backup plan. You can’t call it aurora hunting if that’s not what you will do.
      🤷

      Also this company is confusing with sending the right timing if you book through other website, causing us to be 2 hours earlier then we should have been. Instead of telling us to read the emails more carefully you should make sure your partners don’t send out wrong timings at the same time.
      If this was 50-60 euro activity I would understand.

      Dogs and owners of the farm were very nice, these people seem to know what they are doing, no fault to them.

      This is a tourist trap tho, no other words…

      Cancelled without any explanation!
      So this was to be my son’s Christmas present. We have paid in full and just received an email saying the tour operator has cancelled. There is no explanation or reason offered and it’s 12 days before we arrive.
      I’ve lost faith in this company as we had other trips with them which we will now cancel.
      If you want to plan ahead I wouldn’t use them!!

      The company isn’t finnish. Nobody speaks finnish and they don’t know anything about finnish culture. You should book the tours from finnish companies for better experience and at the same time you support the locals. Anyways they provided good tour and we got what we wanted.

      Dear Topias, Thank you for your review. Our company is a Finnish company, but our customers are from all around the world, so we have an international team in order to offer services for our customers with different languages needed for their convenience with communication. Nevertheless, there are still many local Finnish colleagues working with us as well. All our guides have been well-trained before they start to guide customers, so we all possess good knowledge regarding to Finland and Lapland. Please also note the policy on TripAdvisor is for customers who have experienced our tours and give ffedback accordingly, but it seems you are not one of our customers according to your review. Since it's against the regulation of Trip Advisor, it will be apprecaited if you can retrieve the review. Thank you again for your time. Warm regards, Nordic Unique Travels

      We had a wonderful time with our guide, Linda! She had a positive energy which we enjoyed a lot, despite the cold (-27 C)!
      We had the chance to ride a husky slay on top of a frozen lake, which as an was a unique experience. Then, we stood over a fire and enjoyed a local hot beverage. Last stop, another frozen lake which offered an open sky above us, perfect setting for northern lights observation. What a perfect setting to enjoy some delicious sausages!

      We took a lot of beautiful pictures since we were in fact incredibly lucky to see the spectacular glowing Aurora above us!

      I totally recommend this tour, especially if you can book it with Linda!

      We loved every minute of the night trip, Victor & Daniel were excellent guides & both so knowledgeable but still fun. They really made sure it special for our 11 year as only child. We didn’t see northern lights as it snowing but it actually made it magical crossing frozen lake, the BBQ of sausage & corn is just perfect to warm you. Meeting farm goats was lovely bonus as they nosey to see us leaving, huskies so happy & healthy. Could not find a fault, excellent from booking to finish & Victor’s karaoke bus was great fun to finish the drive back 😂

      We booked the hunting aurora lights with lapish barbeque. The guides Pepe, Matheus and Laura were extremely friendly, professional and pleasant. The barbeque was abundant. We saw the aurora lights from far away so the package was complete. My two problems were that we were never picked up from our hotel so we had to run in the snow on foot to catch the group at the last minute. The other problem was that the clothing that we were provided was dirty. I could clearly smell the sweat of the previous guy wearing it. Definitely there is room for improvement but it will be a good memory from our Rovaniemi tour.

      We had a stunning night experience with a sky full of stars and we also saw bright northern lights.
      We were in a small group of 4 people and our guide drove us to a Husky farm where we got a short introduction how to drive the Husky sled. Afterwards we started the Husky Sled Tour.

      Our guide Belén was very nice and friendly, she stopped our car in the middle of the road just to enable us to see the northern lights.

      We also drove to a frozen lake close to Rovaniemi and had a nice Barbecue.

      If you are in Lapland, we would definitely recommend to book this tour.

      Everything was timed, we even didn’t have time to eat all the bbq, just the sausage because we needed to go fast. Our two guides didn’t explain us anything, they answered to our questions with short simple answers.
      We cannot see anything on the sleigh because of the light of the driver. Impossible to see the sky and potentially northern lights.
