This was a well-paced tour that gave a really good experience of the Finnish Lapland. It began with a tour to the zoo. Alex took us there and gave interesting information about the animals and the zoo. Then he took us to the cottage for the second half of the day where we met Alex and Tanya, both of whom were friendly and told us lots of information about life in Lapland. The place around the cottage was pristine and beautiful with a lovely lake. The traditional Finnish sauna was also quite an experience, especially if you are planning to take a dip in the lake in between. After that, we had some delicious dinner served to us. I have taken many pictures on the trip. But I don't think I will need them as the experience will be fresh in my mind for years to come.
We thoroughly enjoyed the night, our guide was especially informative and good company. The sauna experience was a perfect opportunity to relax after our trip into Rovaniemi and the meal was a simple yet delightful set of homemade glazed salmon and vegetables.
I would recommend this tour as it will save you a bit of time (rather than doing it DIY, one by one). It is do-able the three activities in one day in santa village becauseeverything is walking distance in there, but if you want to know more infos and trivias, and save time on searching the places where to do activities, and queuing to buy the tickets then i would recommend you to book this one. It includes everything and the guide will answet yout questions. Thanks to our guide Alex, we manage to do everything we want to do in 1 day. We didnt have to line to buy tickets in that cold weather. The trivias and his shop recommendations are interesting and useful!
Friendly Informative Guide - Glad we booked with them
Alex who was our guide, there is also Alex who is the owner. Both are extremely friendly and informative. So throughout the booking process all our questions were answered well. Alex drove us to two different places, one was pretty secluded away from the coaches and we were extremely lucky to see the Aurora...It wasn't quite as the images you see and you only really see the colours in the Photos. But on the whole great experience. Alex made a fireplace and provided hot drink/marshmallows and the kids loved it.
We booked the 3 pass because we were not sure to be able to see any. The first day Alex the owner was opened to see what to do but it was a cloudy night so no chance to see them so we decided to forget about. The next night it was looking better but at the end the clouds didn't want to go away. Alex the guide - yes two different Alex - was all the time nice and so optimistic. He was tacking care of us and making the moment special. At the end we could'nt see any...buttttttt the last night and aslo the last try at -15ºC, we achieve yo see them!!! alex the guide - I don't know the surname- was all the time taking care of us because it was so cold outside....he added value to the moment with his charm. the experience great and if you go there in nov-desember be patiente because the cloudy nights make so difficult the chance to see them. thanks Alex2
We had 3 small children with us and this was a good option as the staff were very accommodating. We went twice and managed to see the lights the second time. It would be good if the staff were able to take photos of us, maybe even bring their own cameras as it was already expensive and difficult to justify buying a camera to see something that may not occur. To the naked eye the lights were ok.... but much better when photographed.
I took 5 different Trips from Nordic Adventures and had a Memorable Visits to the Husky Park, Reindeer Park and the 3 days Northern Lights Hunt. The Tour guide Alex was very friendly and took care well.I was solo traveller but being in a small group i made lot of friends including Alex itself. Though the Aurora chances was very low i could still capture some shots using my camera. Also loved the camp fires and eating sausages in the extreme cold weather and off course the berry juice. I highly recommend the Tours from Nordic Adventures for a small and personalised experiences in Lapland. Thank you Alex and Alex (2 ) ..Ha ha !
After 3.5 hours of hunting the Northern lights in Rovaniemi from one fixed location, on a night with clear visibility, we experienced NO Northern Lights. I believe it was not our lucky day. For a 4 year old child to pay full price as an adult is a bit steep.The guide was very nice.
I went on the Lappish evening tour and I loved it from start to finish. We drove to a lovely spot in the forest by a frozen lake where they have a traditional cottage and wood-fired Finnish sauna. It was lit up with lanterns and torches and looked so welcoming. It was so peaceful and the sky was beautiful with so many stars!
Everything was provided in the sauna: towels, slippers, wood for the fire, cold water, hot water, tea, oils for scent and a walkie talkie in case you need anything else! When I wanted to cool down I could walk outside into the snow and look up at the constellations - it was an almost spiritual experience. It was the best sauna experience I have ever had - much better than a hotel sauna.
The other people in my group tried ice fishing in the frozen lake. After the sauna, we enjoyed delicious wood-fired salmon with simple vegetables and potatoes as well as (non-alcoholic) Gloggi and cinnamon cookies. Alex was very knowledgable and informative about many things to do with Finland.
Even though we did not see the aurora that night, I had already seen it on a different night so I did not mind. This trip was one of the highlights of my trip to Lapland. Thank you very much Alex & Tanya. I would highly recommend it.
