Martin was our guide to hunt for the northern lights. He is so knowledgeable and helpful and especially good with seniors. He took a lot of trouble and gave a lot of useful photography tips. In the middle of nowhere he brought out hot drinks for our group of six and later cooked reindeer meat in minus 11 degrees centigrade.... More

We planned our entire trip to Rovaniemi with Safarica. We did 5 different tours over 4 days - the Lappish Lunch Break, Dinner at the Ice Restaurant, Arctic Delight - Santa and his reindeer, Thrill of Speed - Two Hour Husky Safari and Aurora Sky Drive. We had such a great time the entire time. Safartica includes all clothing hire... More

Booked a Snowmobile safari with Safartica, and although for the most part it was a nice evening with a friendly guide we did feel a little mislead by the description online. The description is that we would "Drive through the beautiful, winter landscape in snowmobile headlights before stopping for a break in the middle of the pitch dark forest" where... More

We would recommend to book it. The second one was a snow mobile safari to see the northern lights, it was too cold to go on this safari,... More

We booked an aurora tour with them and they will provide you with the extra warm gear needed in addition to your own. Overalls, socks, balaclava, snow shoes and gloves. I would think that it's quite hygienic as they separate the used socks and balaclavas after. They are also able to give you good advice when suiting up. For example... More

We would like to thank Martin Stefanov for him being so kind to show us how to shoot aurora with the appropriate exposure and settings in our camera; although we don't have the luck for aurora for the night ( New Year's Eve - 31 dec 2015) given the thick cloud), Martin made our day ! We have a memorable... More

Morning husky sledge safari is a must in Rovaniemi! Dogs are very well kept, trained and eager to pull your sleigh through the winter landscapes - snow-covered forest & frozen lake! It can get very cold during the ride - Safartica offers warm winter clothing, but I recommend to get dressed also property and put extra layers of own winter... More

I'm just back from a day full of stories to share. With Safartica we first visited Santa Claus and then we had lunch in authentic Finnish restaurant. After that we visited a reindeer farm where we had a lot of fun with our child. After that we had to do something very extreme. Our guide, Martin, took a good care... More

Our guides are very helping. The snowmobile safari is quite fun but you can't go very fast. The reindeer ride is a little bit long for me. I think its's better if the duration for the reindeer ride can be shorter a little bit. My mom lost her hat during the reindeer ride, but our guide looked for it and... More

Dearest Natalia, Thank you for taking time to write us a review and give us feedback! We are super happy to hear you spotted auroras as it is a very difficult phenomenon to spot and also to hear your hat was found! Next time you come, we book you on short reindeer safari instead of the one hour safari and... More
