We did the two hour husky safari. booking was easy as you can do it online & confirmation is nearly instant. You are told what your pickup time is which is great to not have to worry about getting there. You are provided with thermal wear but if you are doing the safari in winter I strongly recommend dress extra... More

We did three Safartica adventures ... the snowmobile safari to the reindeer place, the husky sled safari across a frozen lake and the northern lights chase and reindeer farmer's farm. The farm was great at night and very informative but cloudy so we missed the lights. It was still a great experience. Our guide actually said he didn't know why... More

Very expensive tour (snowmobile), but very interesting. The guide, a young russian born guy, very friendly and did everything to make us feel well during the tour. There was another girl as a guide, but I think she should have been a bit more involved. He was doing everything and she was just sitting and watching. Haven't tried other tour... More

I don't recommend!!! We went to their office to book a Northern Lights tour and we were not advised that that day was almost impossible to see them because of the clouds. Further more, the guide decided to take us to his farm to see the reindeers and to pass the time instead of chasing the lights as were expecting.... More

I've been lucky in having found Safartica since it was the ONLY company having organized safaries the third week of november! At the beginning, I asked to Lapland Safari and I was told it wasn't possible to book any trip or safari because of the weather (or probably because it was not convenient for it to organize a safari for...

The staff are very friendly, and to be fair we went at the start of the season. We booked to go on the reindeer farm trip in the morning. We took our six year old granddaughter. It was 65 euro adult and 40 euro child. We were told to arrive at 10.30 am, but we were hanging around until 11.15.... More

The trip was well organized and the Husky park folks were great. I think they might warn potential riders about just how cold you might get even with their good gear.

We booked with Safartica 2 tours: Husky safari which was more than perfect, and snowmobile with ice fishing which was very fun and well organized. The guides were all very good and experienced. Try to book a few days before because sometimes they are full for the popular tours. They have good gear and good transportation. Enjoy:)

I cannot say how much I regret having booked a tour with Safartica. Actually, this company must have an arrangement with the hotel "Ounasvaaran Pirtit" because when we wanted to call another company, the hotel recommended "the good one" and had everything organized for us. On a perfectly clear skied evening, in the month of March on a 11th year... More
