Whether they come out to show their faces or not, you are sure to take in some beautiful views over the Lappish National Park and its fabulous forest of pine trees.

At the start of the activity, your guide will provide you with some warm overalls as well as your snowshoes, so you are all set with no need to bring any specialized equipment. They will also bring along some hot drinks for you to sip on in the National Park, warming you up from the inside out.

Our family of four had a great experience snowshoeing through a moonlit winter wonderland. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel, which made it extra convenient.

This tour was nice enough, but for the price? Should’ve been better. Our guides were great, definitely couldn't fault them. It was just the organisation that lacked a bit. We spent a lot of time just sitting and waiting around, no instruction, no options, just waiting, the tour could've been at least an hour or 90min shorter if the timing was bettered. The activities themselves: -The snowmobiling was great, an hour is a perfect amount of time and the scenery is beautiful. l'd definitely recommend doing a snow mobile tour with this company. 10/10 for that. -Huskies, the dogs were super sweet, but it is a rushed quick get on, go around once, pat dogs then wait for the other 50 people to do the same thing (50 might be an exaggeration, but there were definitely too many for the time slot which is why there was so much waiting around). There was no information on the huskies given, and it wasn't a very enjoyable part of the tour. -Reindeer, same as huskies, quick on and off the sleigh and go wait in this cabin (granted, hot drinks and cookies by the fire was good as it was a chilling -23°C). There wasn't any interaction with the reindeer. We did get information about them at this section though, so better than the husky experience. -Santa's village, look, if you're not obsessed with Christmas, this is just boring. It's very expensive shopping only. 2hrs here is not needed, it takes 10-15min to wander the village. So unless you're waiting in line for a €30 photo with Santa or getting lunch, it's really not worth it. So, this tour was ok. But personally, I wouldn't recommend it in its entirety, l'd stick with just snowmobiling here. Maybe if the number of participants is lower it'd be better? Just felt like a lot of money for a lot of sitting around.
