        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.

        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.

        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

      When we arrived at the departure location, we were advised there were no toilet facilities in the departure location so the desk advised that should you need to go, to use facilities in the shopping mail, some 10 minutes away. In preparation for the excursion you are kitted out with a set of overalls which are thermal protection from the elements, which is a good idea. But as there was no prior information regarding this, my wife and myself were wearing salopettes and as we didn’t want multiple layer it was necessary to change. But especially for my wife there was no where to change, no discretion, with probably 30 people all trying on suites and boots, absolute chaos.

      Our party on the snow mobiles consisted of 3 couples, plus the guide Boris and his support guide. Both myself and my wife have used snow mobiles on approximately 4 occasions, the other 2 couples had never driven. Unfortunately this made the experience extremely boring as at no point did we go over 25k per hour.

      We mentioned this to Boris and said the company should offer beginners and more experienced driving experiences. It’s expensive and as such you want to get the most from it, this we most certainly didn’t.

      Dear valued customer, Thank you for your comment and we are sorry to hear of your experience. Our shop didn't have the toilet originally, that's why everyone will need to the toilet in the mall. The way to the toilet is around 3 mins. However, we're sorry with the inconvenience will seek for the possibility to upgrade our facilities. Thank you for the advice! Kind regards, Nordic Unique Travel

      Our activity was booked for 1000 with a meeting time set for 0830
      I was awoken at midnight the previous evening to rearrange the meeting time to 1000 as we would then have more daylight. This did prove beneficial, however the call could of been made earlier.
      We found the office easily as it spills out into the street. Once inside chaos is an understatement. We were instructed to go downstairs to change, and then sent back upstairs as the facility was closed. Queueing for check-in, clothes, entry and exit is all within a tiny area with bodies packed everywhere trying to change. We were told to leave our coats and bags but at our own risk we kept them with us. The guides have a job on locating groups and a lot of time was spent outside waiting around. Once underway though our guides Matius and ? were very good. Good clear and knowledgeable instructions were given and when we initially set off and it was clear the group needed a reshuffle of experience levels, we soon settled comfortably into the ride. We did have a wait as a mobile broke down but it was swiftly dealt with and a stop for photos and change drivers was appreciated. There was then an issue with the late arrival of the coach but we were kept informed, and the guys could not have been more apologetic as things had not run smoothly. The hour as first timers was sufficient for us and we cannot fault the guides and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, being value for money. The rest however was utter shambles.

      Dear Customer, Thank you for your feedback. We have been trying our best to organize things as well as possible, and we apologize for some details which we didn't manage to take good enough care of in your tour during high season in Lapland with many customers traveling with us together. It's appreciated that you described all the matters thoughout the whole process of your tour experience, and it helps us much to take them for better references to see which part is to be improved, and which part is with positive effects which are better to be well kept. Finally, our team is glad to know that you still have enjoyed the time overall with us on the tour itself. Look forward to providing our better services with you again when you travel in Lapland next time. Warm regards, Nordic Unique Travels

      We were a Spanish family of 8 people. We weren’t so lucky to have enough snow to go for the snowmobile tour and did ATV instead, which was good fun anyway.
      They deserve 5 starts because the company adapted to our pickup time and TELMO was an AWESOME guide, helping us a lot and making us learn about Rovaniemi.

      While the snowmobiling was fun, the hour or so wait while a horde of tourists are fitted for snowsuits and balaclava's really put a downer on the experience.

      We were picked up from our hotel at 9:50 and didn't start snowmobiling until 11:30 due to a very inefficient and stressful fitting process.

      The tour guide was friendly enough, and the hot drink afterwards was a nice touch.

      I was however unaware that we would be asked to front €30 to 'insure' our snowmobile, which if crashed, would still run you a bill of €300. This ofcourse, like every other step, took a long time and was haphazardly organised. (FYI the path you ride on is well trodden, and straight for the majority, it would be hard to crash. You may wish to consider forgoing this charge)

      There are no toilets at any point of this trip, unless you seek one out on your own, so make sure to go beforehand.

      Dear Jason, Thank you for your kind feedback. Since there are bigger groups in high season, we might need more time to make sure all our customers are ready and well prepared to go for safety either with the winter clothes or the insurances. However, we always make sure the tour inclusions are still well conducted for example the enough snowmobile riding time despite of many customers.

      We had a wonderful time riding the snow motorbikes through the snowy forests in Rovaniemi with Jordi, our guide, who was very attentive and caring from the very beginning of our trip. He also explained us a a little bit about Rovaniemi's history and culture, and gave us useful tips to enjoy our holidays in Lapland. Thank you Jordi!!!

      Most of us don't have the opportunity to ride a snowmobile. That's why this is an excellent tour to try it. Especially through the Lappish forests and frozen lakes. It's simply beautiful.
      Note. At the end of the season, the trail becomes more a lot more bumpy. As a passenger this may not be that comfortable.

      The guides were very friendly.

      Small children (I believe below 1.50m) travel in a sled behind the guide. I can imagine this isn't the most exciting for them. At the end there is an opportunity for them to ride small snow mobiles in an enclosed area. Lots of fun for them. €20/child. Just ask the guide at the end of the tour and you can pay afterwards upon returning to the meeting point.

      Wow! What an amazing experience. Paul made It to us an unforgettable experience, teaching us how to drive and making it look so easy. I went with my girlfriend so I made half way driving and muy girlfriend the other half. In the middle we did a mini break to take some pictures and drink a hot delicious blueberry tea. I'd like to repeat every day again and again and again. Amazing experience and amazing teacher. Thank you Paul!!

      Very disorganized trip. We initially booked in English speaking tour and they put us in Spanish group for no reason given. I will give the team 0 score for communication. Throughout the tour, people were scattered and tour guides would not communicate at all to the participants. A good 50% of the tour was also spend on waiting for other participants to arrive. The drink that was served in the end of the tour was of poor quality.

      No information was given on the route of the trip or about the place. Complete waste of money.

      Dear Sachin Soman, Thank you for your time and review. There were also Spanish customers who required Spanish, but our guide talked both in English and Spanish. We would try our best to balance the languages more when we have customers who need different languages. There were three guides on your traveling date, but only one of them speaks Spanish. We apologize for making you feel the tour lack of communication, but the groups are relatively big during high season, and our guides always try to take care of all the customers as much as we can. Unlike other tours, snowmobiles tours are with much time driving on snowmobiles, so guides have to focus on driving safety meanwhile as well. Thank you again for your feedback which can make us better to provide improved service to potential customers in the future. Warm regards, Nordic Unique Travels

      Safety briefing minimal

      Guide monosyllabic. Parked outside an apartment block for about 10 mins presumably to pick someone up but didn't communicate anything to us.

      Told I needed to bring a driving licence. Brought it. No one asked to see it.

      14 year old was told they could drive although the guidelines are clear that this is not allowed and they don't have a driving licence anyway!

      Dear reviewer, We have been conducting snowmoblie tours throughout seasons, and children will be always sitting on sleighs pulled by the snowmobiles of our snowmobile guides. Once the children are tall enough (for safety), it will be also possible for them to sit on snowmobiles as passengers, but never as drivers. There are also always safety instructions given by our guides about driving licenses and driving skills before the tour departures as the routine for this tour since safety is absolutely the first priority. Please kindly check again if you indeed attended our tour since the description doesn't match our safety guideline at all. We couldn't find your name in our customer list, but please feel free to reach us directly, and we will be glad to discuss further. Thank you again for your time. Best regards, Nordic Unique Travels Team

      Highly recommend this tour operator. Office right in downtown, where you get your gear. The gear made the trip comfortable, as we didn't get cold. Short drive to snowmobile location, about 15 minutes. I appreciated that both passenger and driver have hand warmers in the snowmobile. Jordi was great, enthusiastic and made the experience unforgetable for us. It is a lot of fun, and the landscape is a winter wonderland! It's a must experience in the lapland.
