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

We did not use Safartica for trips only because their tours were on the wrong days. We paid a couple of visits and were welcomed each time with some recommendations given on restaurants which we did use. They kindly booked a taxi for us with no trouble and were very helpful. Staffed by well informed locals, excellent English spoken.

We booked this excursion in advance of our holiday and chose Safartica as we thought they looked the best of the available operators. We were quite surprised therefore to find that they are only a middle man for the husky farm and that we were on the same tour as people from Lapland Safaris all going on the same trip.... More

We joined 3 activities on the same day - 1. Reindeer safari to Santa's Village, 2. Thrill of Speed - Two Hours Husky Safari and 3. Aurora Borealis Picnic with Snowshoes. We booked through email and their sales gave 10% off to us for joining 3 activities at the same time. 1. For Reindeer safari to Santa's Village, in fact... More

Went with Safartica on the above - Jan 2 & 3. Both days were cloudy and we didn't see any Northern Lights. However, we had booked the trip days in advance and we couldn't cancel. The snow mobile ride was fun though. We rode to a small log cabin in the middle of the forest and had berry juice and... More

Booked my December 2013 arctic safaris through Safartica after scouring the web for a affordable and reliable DMC. Communication with them was pleasant but they took rather long to reply (they apparently do not work everyday during off peak season). There was a mistake in the billing as I was charged 100% instead of the initial 30% deposit but that... More

So what impressed us first about Safartica was that they responded to our e-mail inquiries the fastest, while the other travel provider we contacted (“Husky Point”) never responded to our messages. The other (seemingly bigger) travel provider in Rovaniemi is Lapland Safaris, who wear distinctive red snowsuits while Safartica snowsuits were blue. Anyways, for our four day visit to the... More
