Chris, our guide was super nice and helpful, he told us a lot of interesting information on the way to the top of the hill from where we got a wonderful view of the Taiga. This excursion is a valuable alternative to what other tour operators can offer you and it is a really good way to reconnect with the nature and discover Finland.
This was our second tour with this agency and we were really happy for their professionalism and kindness: the staff always tries their best to make your experience unforgettable :)
Amazing trip, thanks Chris!!

Rainy day in the nature
That day was a rainy and gloomy day, and the original plan was modified as we couldn't stay outdoor for a long period of time. Our guide Theo suggested another plan and we were driven to different locations to have short walks in the nature. It was a good experience but would hope to hike properly again on a sunny day! Had a nice and warm barbecue as well and it was great too!

A great experience We recommend it!
Oct 2019 • Couples
We had the chance to go with our guide in the taiga forest near to Rovaniemi. We enjoyed a lot! We had a walk for about two hours. Our guide told us the rich history of the region and of the Sami people. We finished with an authentic barbecue!
We appreciated to be guided as individuals would love to. We escaped the massive tourism model! We were 2 only with our guide. Did pay 70€/each.

An amazing tour with a very good guide
Jun 2019
The tour was very interesting thanks to our guide. His explanations are very clear and useful in order to understand the surroundings.
The place is magnificent and thanks to Theo you learn a lot of stuff about nature and also how to survive in the wildlife of Lapland, you even learn how to make a fire without using any matches!
I recommend it!!
Thanks Theo!!!

Wilderness tour
I had nothing less than a wonderful experience with the Wilderness tour. The guide had a lot of knowledge that he shared. It was both meditative when we went quietly and fun when we went down the hill outside the trails. Great and intense nature experience - it felt like we had been off for a whole day. My best commendations.

Nature at its best.
We had a fantastic time. Theo was a great guide and was extremely helpful. The tour itself was value for money. A beautiful journey into the wild, mixed with making a fire and time to relax and enjoy the views. We saw wild rain deer and amazing scenery. Highly recommend this to all. James and Sally

Excellent Forrest walk
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Moderate walk up to the lookout, assume you would get great views on a clear day.
Our day was foggy and in autumn which had its own eerie appeal. Guide Theo was very informative about the local environment, Finland and easy to chat too.
Highly recommend if you want a quick getaway into the worlds largest land biome.
