“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

After contacting them by email and getting a really quick response we booked a full day of reindeer sleigh ride, ice fishing lunch, snow shoeing and more reindeer sleigh ride.
The whole day was brilliant, driving our own sleighs without assistance, drilling our own ice hole in the lake falling in the snow and we got our reindeer driving licenses! The team were brilliant nothing was any trouble, the fish soup for lunch was delicious and even a non fish eater liked it. Make sure you do wrap up warm though, we did and didn't get cold but I could imagine if you weren't suitably dressed and got cold you might not enjoy it as much as we did. A really fun way to spend the day.

“A wonderful Finnish experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

What a great day out! My partner and I had a wonderful time, first riding the reindeer sled out to the lake and then trying our hand at ice fishing. My girlfriend caught a nice rainbow trout and although I did not it was lots of fun.
There was a wonderful hut with a blazing fire inside and food and tea. They also cooked up our fish for us which was absolutely delicious.

Our guide Petra deserves a special mention as she was welcoming, funny and overall just a pleasure to be around and talk to. Thank you so much!

“Children's Playground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We took the kids here last year and had a fantastic time . From husky rides to decorating ginger bread. From sledging, to reindeer sleigh rides and Ski-Dooing deep into the forest to meet Father Christmas. It was -40 when we were their and it felt colder on the back on a Ski-Doo. The Food was ok not much for the kids, and you will need to get a few Finlandia's down your neck at the Ice Bar / Hotel to keep warm.

“Safari - reindeer, snowshoeing, ice fishing, salmon soup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

A fantastic day out! We took a reindeer sleigh ride through a snowy forest to the Lake. Here we tried ice-fishing and snowshoeing. We then enjoyed salmon soup, bread, and trout that someone caught cooked freshly in front of us in a Lappish Hut. To finish, we journeyed back with the reindeer & received a reindeer driving license each.

“Brilliant reindeer sled, ice fishing, snowshoe and salmon soup tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We loved this tour! Overall in Levi we were a bit disappointed with our tours - they all seemed to be only interested in money-grabbing but not this one. The tour provider spoke excellent English and explained everything really well. We really enjoyed the whole tour - everything was really fun. The tour operators offered to take photos for us which was great (this is not unusual in other countries but in Levi pretty much every other tour made us pay 30 euro for a 'professional' photo and refused to take any with your own camera). Unlike other tours, we only paid for the tour and didn't have to pay any extras when we arrived. We were able to pat the reindeer which I loved. The lunch was delicious and filling too. We loved the whole tour and were glad we saved this fantastic tour for our last day after a week of sub-par tours in Levi.
