        Air conditioning was broken in the van
        The hike was good, but the transfer in the van with the air conditioning broken was terrible. Two hours sitting in the back without air made was very uncomfortable and ruined my experience.

        Mesmerising Trip
        The Midnight Sun sauna boat trip in Rovaniemi was an unforgettable experience, beautifully blending relaxation and natural beauty. Mathias and Kido, our guides, were exceptional. Their knowledge, enthusiasm, and warm hospitality enhanced the trip immensely. They ensured we were comfortable, safe and informed, making the entire journey smooth and enjoyable. The sight of the midnight Sun was surreal and magical. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Rovaniemi!

        Beautiful & Thrilling trip through an arctic wonderland
        Riding the snowmobile through the forest was exhilarating and beautiful. It was amazing getting to see so much of the beautiful land and snow covered trees and really fun. We went on a two seater as a couple and had a great time - they give you opportunity to switch drivers half way through if you want to so you both get to experience it. They provided delicious snacks and a hot drink after. I recommend taking really thick insulated gloves as my hands were frozen! I would 100% do this again - what a highlight!

        Winter wonderland
        A really great company to deal with. Our tour guide was so helpful gave us lots of information on surrounding areas. Pick up & drop off option was very convenient. We drove through the forest into a setting sun in -29 degrees it was an incredible experience We were only 1s on tour that particular evening Everyone in our group ( 7, aged 7 -43 ) of us really enjoyed it On drop off back to city we were given some lovely hot berry juice & cookies I highly recommend this company & will definitely use them again next year

        Superb Reindeer tour - lovely to see animals and humans in harmony!
        We did a Reindeer tour with Pasquale and his friends on 22-Feb-24. Was fantastic, and I totally recommend it. It was friendly and unhurried, and a really magical and memorable experience in the beautiful countryside. the first thing we noticed on the tour was how well the animals were treated, and the wonderful harmony between the humans and the Reindeer - with each respecting and evidently liking the other. Pasquale gave us a detailed explanation of how the Reindeer live, and the symbiotic relationship between humans and Reindeer, which has thrived for centuries, with each benefitting from the other. Then we had a ride in a Reindeer sleigh, with an obviously happy and friendly Reindeer pulling us along, (the Reindeer chose the pace, and we trotted along very nicely - no controls from the driver - the Reindeer just trot along as they fancy). These are wild reindeer - these aren't domesticated animals - and all Summer, they live completely free and wild, and only in the winter season do they interact with humans; so these are properly wild animals, and yet they are relaxed and comfortable in the presence of humans - that is really really nice to see - and probably that is the most memorable part of the tour. Then after the rides, we all sat in a lovely cosy hut around a roaring natural-wood fire, and drank delicious hot berry-juice, with traditional spicey biscuits - which were really lovely, and we learned more about the history and practices of the Reindeer - and how the humans interact with them and protect them from predators - no hurry, and all super-interesting. After all the questions were done, there was plenty of time to finish off our drinks and snack, and no rush, and we all trotted off and were driven back to the starting point at the end of the tour. Super memorable, and super lovely. Before the tour, I was a little anxious in case the Reindeer were not nicely treated, but I needn't have worried - it was super-lovely to see how well the humans and animals interacted - if only we could find a way for other species of animals to be so well-treated as these ones. Obviously I am not so naive as to realise that many of the Reindeer will eventually be slaughtered for meat - and I'm a vegetarian, so don't like the idea of that AT ALL - however if you are going to have animals which will eventually become "meat", then this is the way that they should be treated - kindly, nicely, and with respect, and other types of animal-husbandry could really learn lessons from the Finns and how they interact with these beautiful, gentle, and graceful Reindeer. So if you are thinking of a tour - BOOK WITH THESE GUYS, because it is really lovely. Pasquale is a great ambassador for this company, and the more people select tours with these guys, the more it will help people like Pasquale to work with these graceful and lovely animals !

        Fantastic experience and we saw the Northern Lights
        We did the Small-Group Aurora Snowshoeing in Forests and had an amazing time. GG was a fantastic guide, it was wonderful to walk through the forest at night in snow shoes, we felt like we had the forest to ourselves. We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights and GG guided us to a fantastic spot to see them. It was a truly magical experience that we'll never forget, thank you very much

        Great experience and excellent guides
        We originally booked for a full day snowmobiling but the Nordic Unique Travels contacted us the day before and let us know they couldn't provide this but could provide the 2-3 option, which we accepted. In April there was always a chance that there wouldn't be enough snow for the tour anyway, so we were aware that there could be an issue. As it turned out, the 3 hours was perfect. Snowmobiling is more difficult than it looks but it was brilliant. We drove across a frozen lake and through the wooded areas around it and enjoyed every minute. The guides were constantly vigilant and stopped every now and then to make sure none of us ended up too far away. They also gave a full outline on safety and guidelines before we left. The only name I remember was Paula (who picked us up) and she was friendly and enthusiastic, as were all the guides. Highly recommended.

        Great Photos
        Even though the northern light's activity was quite low and you could only see it on the horizon, the photos were stunning! I would definitely recommend it, your phone wont be able to take pictures as good as this photographer can, she is amazing! The only thing I'd wish for is that the team could keep an eye out for all the people coming with us. They walked pretty fast back to the bus and it was hard to keep up without a flashlight through the high snow

        Thanks to our driver and guide, Pasquale, we had a wonderful trip with the husky's. Especially the very cold temperature that day was remarkable (-31°C)

        A good beginners exercise for first time snowmobilers.
        As first timers at snowmobiling it took us a little while to gain our confidence. We appreciated our guide Sergio putting us in the slower group at the first break. From there on we thoroughly enjoyed it.

        Disappointing "Northern Lights Hunt with BBQ" Experience
        If you're considering the "Northern Lights Hunt with BBQ" tour, let me save you the trouble: don't bother. This so-called adventure was a complete letdown from start to finish. First off, they clearly have no clue about when and where to find the Northern Lights Or probably they knew it but didn’t care and dumped us in a sad little tent next to a highway. Surprise, surprise, no lights to be seen. They call it hunt but should learn the definition of it. We understand it’s nature but being in business we expect them to know this upfront and put a little effort to make it worth(I know many tours postpone the trip due to bath weather or in some cases refund). Total waste of time and frustration. And don't even get me started on the BBQ. One sad sausage and a tiny cup of soup does not a meal make. We were left starving and grumpy by the end of it. Save your money and sanity, folks. This tour is nothing but a scam targeting clueless tourists. Do yourself a favor and find something better to spend your money on.

        Great tours with Nordic Unique Travels
        We have booked three activities with this provider. Everything went smoothly, from the transportation to the execution of the activity. We did the snowmobile tour at night with Nicole. She is very customer-oriented and friendly. She was able to tell us a lot about Lapland and at the BBC we had a funny and very pleasant conversation with her. We booked the husky tour in the afternoon. We had wonderful weather. The experience with the snow dogs was very nice. The tour was rounded off with delicious blueberry tea, cookies and a story about the huskies. Once again, Nicolle accompanied us and Owen war our friendly driver. The Norther Lights tour was amazing. We had a delicious BBC beforehand. The photographer Pepe was very patient with our large group and took great photos. Thanks also to Nicky, Franco, Antoinette and Risa for accompanying us. We had a great time! thx

        Excellent tour! Highly recommended
        I called this tour operator last minute to book an aurora photography tour. They replied inmediatley, made it so easy to book. Provided clear and exact details about the pick up time, tour highlights, times etc. The tour guide, Franco picked me up o’clock. He was very nice, kind and friendly since the very first beginning. We headed to the agency’s main office to get some warm clothes (included in the tour price), the lady at the counter was also nice. Headed to hunt the auroras and even though there were some difficult passengers aboard our group, our tour guides were always nice and professional. I would definitely recommend them and I am looking forward to experience another tour with the company.

        Husky farm visit and husky sleigh experience
        While the sleigh ride and our guide were really nice, however it wasn’t as advertised! We expected a 2-3h experience which is what was printed in the brochure but in total we were only there for approx one hour, for the price we paid as a family we felt it wasn’t value for money.

      We had a great tour of lakeside ice fishing and sauna thanks to our tour guide Antonella. Since we were vegetarians, she made sure we get vegetarian food for barbeque and took extra effort to make sure our trip was memorable.
