In the summer, we can take you on a wonderful hike on the Karhunjomalampi Trail. This route takes us through the lush, old-growth forest of Luosto. When blueberry season is in full swing (July - October), the trail blooms with scrumptious delights. Another relaxing summer adventure lies in the beautiful Ranua Wildlife Park. The park has one of the world’s best zoos, focusing on 50 different animal species native to Northern Finland, including the nation’s only polar bears.

We offer a variety of adventures to hunt the sometimes elusive sight. Whether striking out in a reindeer pulled sleigh, or sequestering ourselves in a Lappish wooden hut on the shores of a private lake, your night will be memorable. We also offer several snowmobile safaris to take you far from civilization to see sights or even fish!

Alex was such a wonderful guide for the past 3 nights. He took well care of us by feeding us with hot chocolate, sausages and marshmallows over a campfire. He took us to different spot for the 3 nights we spent with him. We managed to see the Northern Lights for all 3 days. On the 2nd day, he even stopped his car by the roadside when he saw it coming. We quickly grabbed our tripod and camera and jumped out to catch it before it went off.
Thanks Alex for giving us an adventure that we will not forget.
We enjoy the day in this wildlife park full of polar animals. We were lucky enough to see brown bear just weak up from hibernation and the white fox also which you can see rarely as it camouflage in the snow. Our guide knew a lot about all the animals and it was very interesting listening to her. We also had a wonderful Finnish lunch included in the tour and time to visit the souvenirs shop after. On the way back we also had nice conversation about Finland and their customs and traditions. We really enjoyed the day! Thanks to Nordic adventure.
We were picked up by Alex(promptly), the host and driven to his cottage where we enjoyed a sauna and a lovely meal prepared by himself and his wife. It was such an intimate setting where we relaxed in a 2 hour sauna in a traditional log fire stove. The pier was lit up beautifully with warm lights leading you to the private lake where you can ease yourself in to the Nordic temperatures of the water or just jump into the shoulder height water.
We have already planned to come back and perhaps look into hiring out the cabin to stay in. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we are all relaxed now as a result of their hospitality.
If you want a really personal Finnish experience then we highly recommend these guys. A lovely glimpse into Finnish culture coupled with an amazing albeit bizarre experience of ice floating. Completed with a warming fire in a homily environment, with piping hot berry juice and freshly baked ginger cookies. Amazing views over their private lake. Survival suits great quality and keep you warm. Danielle was a fabulous host. Don’t miss this experience.
What an epic night watching Aurora Borealis dancing across the sky!
We booked the 3-day pass a month before our tour in Finland. I thought it was a bit pricey because we could end up not seeing the Northern lights. But the service alone is so worth it. The guide, Alex is so helpful, the experience of chasing and transferring from one spot to another was so exciting for us. They will make a bonfire and cook sausages and serve tea or hot chocolate while waiting.
We were able to see Northern lights for each night. The best one is the final night when it danced across the night sky! Everyone was shouting and cheering when it moved and change colors.
I went off of everyone else’s reviews and chose Nordic adventures because I’m the kind of person who travels alone and tries to meet locals and stay away from tourist traps. On my first trip to see the northern lights though, I didn’t find anyone that I could link up with who was local and so I did extensive research and even rented my own car to try and stay solo on the trip. In the end I decided to join Nordic adventures for my first night to hope to see the northern lights and also because the company states that they keep group sizes small and provide a personal experience. I have to say that hands down I am blown away. Every step from booking to being picked up even to communication with Alex days after my tour was over was incredible. I don’t feel like I was on a tour, I feel like I was hanging out with a few friends. Alex’s Kota on the lake was magic and I would have enjoyed the night whether we saw the northern lights or not. Luckily... they were magic. But this company is hands down the best way I could have experienced the beauty of Finland. Thank you Alex. I’ll be back soon.
We visited the program "traditional Lapland evening", were very satisfied with this place and its employees. Host Alex was very nice and showed us a lot of new things like going to the traditional wood-burning sauna, swimming in the ice-hole, we tried the snowshoes and ended the evening with dinner in a cozy wooden cottage. highly recommend this place!
Our tour guide Alex came to pick us up on time, drove us to Ranua Zoo and back. He helped us to get our head around the place, gave us lots of info and was very patient with our group with lots of children. Thank you Alex.
THE BEST SAUNA EXPERIENCE EVER YOU CAN NOT MISS IN ROVANIEMI!!!!!!
We have recently enjoyed the best Sauna experience ever we could imagine in Rovaniemi. Alex and his wife were an excelent host for this activity and took us (A couple with two kids) to their really nice cottage by the lake just 30 min away from the Santa Claus Village where we were staying. The place was like a dream, really nice house and incredible sauna little cottage, just in front of the lake therefore perfect for the Sauna+buterfly snow swim+lake swimm. All very nice light up with candles up to the lake. At the Sauna we found towels, sneakers, water, coffee, tea and some sweets wich was an unexpected plus for this experience. Once inside the Sauna just plenty of time to relax and enjoy the evening. After Sauna and swimm great experience we enjoyed a lovely grilled Salmon dinner in the Cottage, really very nice atmosphere with the candles and the nice set up of the table where we enjoyed some of the lappish dishes. We are a couple with two kids (14, 7 years) and really enjoy all of us the great experience and actually something really memorable for the family. Therefore even if it doesn't sound like a family fun activity we would highly recomended as well together with the rest of activities you can do in Rovaniemi (Huskies, Reindeers,.....) Alex and his wife were at all time very nice with us and explained us many issues and facts of Finland and Rovaniemi. They were a really great Hosts!!!
