        Lovely experience!
        It was a lovely tour with very friendly guides! The reindeers were so sweet. We loved it very much. Although quite expensive and short.

        Cold but enjoyable experience
        Amazing experience for us and older children. They woods we drove through were magical and the guides were supportive. It’s a shame that our younger children felt cold in a sledge and had to be taken back to the bus to wait for us. They were well looked after and given a drink and a snack.

        An amazing experience. Well organised with a very knowledgeable tour guide. We had a good group size with only 8 of us. The waterfalls and surrounding national park were stunning and well worth a visit.

        Fast tracks but no driving in deep snow
        Very friendly and helpful guide, Nicole! Pros: - fast tracks - good gear Cons: - no driving in deep snow (all prepared snowmobile tracks) - price (tourist-pricing) - no lockers in changing room

        Fun
        Jerry was really nice. First there was a short talk about reindeer while we drank hot berry juice and ate cinnamon rolls by the fire. The sleigh ride was really fun.

        Wonderful experience with the Northern Lights
        Thanks to Euan for leading us to see the aurora. He also explained to everyone the legends of the northern lights while we were waiting for the beautiful aurora to come.

        Magical reindeer experience
        The reindeer experience was great and in a magical setting. The reindeer guide was also very knowledgeable. The experience isn’t that long though and the transport pick up timings were a little inefficient.

        Don't go!!!!
        The tour was very misleading, they just dropped us in a place and gave us food and did not try to even educate us at all regarding the lights or change locations. Completely disrespectful towards all these people who spent all this money. Zero effort. I regret spending money on this tour. Extremely dissapponting

        This experience was really fantastic. It was so terrific to meet the Huskys, an unforgettable experience. Our guides Aldo and Chris were great as well. I recommend Nordic Unique Travels, I have enjoyed many activities with them this week, everything is well organized and this is a once in a lifetime experience ❤️

        Memorable moment
        Was on a hunting Northern lights with lappish barbecue tour on 24 Jan 2024. Despite the cloudy conditions in the beginning, we managed to catch the Northern light subsequently. Special mentioned to Gigi, Alvaro and Clemence who were the tour guides and driver for the night. We have an excellent time together hunting for the Northern light and a delicious lappish barbecue. Gigi is very knowledgeable and professional in explaining on the phenomenon of Northern light. Thank you to Nordic Unique Travel for a well organised tour.

        Great BBQ but need a lot of luck to see Aurora
        Great BBQ outside of town but haven't seen any Aurora even though we had clear sky. That's just bad luck. The team has done the best they could and stayed out with us until 11 pm.

        A day well spent
        Booked for a 3 event excursion. Husky sledge, reindeer sledge and snow shoe hiking. Out of these 3 the best and must try is the snow shoe hiking. It was really fun stepping into thick snow and away from the normal hiking path. We did also enjoy hot blueberry tea and ginger bread at the top of the view point. The husky and reindeer sledge for me was not a wow factor. More on just an experience. Big shoutout to our guide, Miquel. He was really good at explaining and friendly to approach

        Rip-off
        Attention, absolute rip-off! In the description, the entire route is given with 25-30km. We recorded the route with three different devices. The result: 3.72 km The service was good and the guides were nice. We got the promised hot drink, but no gingerbread.

      What an experience!!!
      Huge THANK YOU to Thelmon, our guide, for making this experience super wonderful.
      He came and picked us up on time, very punctual, explained to us what we are going to do, he has even stopped the car so we can see Aurora before the destination. The experience itself its so fun, the costumes kept us warm while we were in the water but after 20 minutes we started to feel a bit cold.
      We were extremely lucky and we saw the Northern lights 🌌.
      I fully recommend this experience from Nordic unique travels . All the staff were super friendly and happy to help with absolutely anything, but Thelmon, our guide has been a star !
      Thank you Thelmon for all the pictures that you have taken for us and for the romanian song that played at the end of our tour #horalaromani 🌌🤗

      I joined the ice floating activity with Nordic Unique Travel in late November 2023. It was a deeply unpleasant experience, because (1) WATER LEAK in the suit; (2) Unprofessional behavior from the tour guides and assistants; (3) No rescue plan.
      After sharing my experiences on Google Review and Trip Advisor, I received a prompt response from Nordic Unique Travels. They expressed their gratitude for my feedback and apologized for their mistakes. They informed me that they had taken steps to rectify their workflow, enhance the quality of their tours, and improve the overall tour experience. Here are the specific actions they've taken:

      1. They have issued warnings to the tour guides about the mistakes and unprofessional behavior and reinforced the guide training.
      2. They have added a rescue worker (not a tour guide) to the ice-floating tour starting from December 7, 2023.
      3. They have improved the workflow and SOP of the ice-floating tour, limiting the number of participants each time to ensure a smoother experience. This also allows tour guides and assistants to better observe and care for each participant. This new practice has been implemented starting from December 7, 2023.

      I was pleasantly surprised to see that Nordic Unique Travels genuinely value customer feedback. They not only acknowledged my experience but also took concrete steps to improve their services. Often, businesses may take advantage of a single customer's experience without making significant improvements. However, Nordic Unique Travels have shown a commitment to enhancing their offerings, demonstrating their desire to provide a better tour experience for their customers.

      Really enjoyed this experience despite not seeing the northern lights unfortunately, although apparently they’d seen them 2 nights previously. It was still a cool experience and our guides made it very enjoyable for us. The suits were great, kept us a float and warm, it was only my fingers and toes that started to get a bit my cold towards the end (but that happened the whole holiday to me). It was definitely something I’ve never done before. I would recommend for a fun and different evening and if you get to see the northern Lights at the same time then it would have been an increible experience.

      Thank you Alexandra for a great time.

      We loved this experience. A must do in Rovaniemi. Antonella and Juli (apologies if I have not spelled your names right guys) were the most lovely and welcoming hosts. So nice and caring. Thank you!!

      We got the additional bonus of catching the Northen Lights just before getting into our suits ... memorable :)

      Fantastic floating experience in a frozen lake, with guide Edoardo who was punctual, informative & helpful. He explained everything in English as we were group of mixed people. He was showing all his efforts to help us in every-way specially with photos & videos. Thanks to you Edo for making our evening memorable with lots of photos & videos. Kudos:)

      This was a totally different experience to anything I’ve done before, it’s very relaxing but after 10mins, although I stayed warm I was ready to get out. My husbands suit leaked to a point where his whole experience was literally dampened. He had to stay in his wet clothes for about an hour when we got back to our hotel. I would suggest the tour organiser suggests bringing a change of clothes! I
      This is a one time experience, in my opinion. The hole that’s been cut out is too small and it’s was really not what I had hoped for.

      Dear valued customer, Thank you for choosing Nordic Unique Travel. We are sorry about your experience. Normally we check all the floating suits every time after the tour ends in case any damages. However, it was our fault that missed this leaking suit and caused you great inconvenience. We have fixed all the suits already and maintain them more carefully. Once again we apologize for your experience and thank you for the advice. We will definitely improve the service in the future. Hope to see you again in Lapland :)! Kind Regards, Nordic Unique Travels

      We didn’t get to see the Aurora Borealis but went on the ice floating activity and then a hike since we got time left. Michal is a great guide who told us all about the activity and some other things about Finland and his home country. Great activity and I totally recommend it.

      Great experience and our guide Ana was really lovely and took great care of us. Although we didnt het to see the lights it was great fun. Would recommend a good pair of gloves to wear under the suit as this was the only part of me that got really cold.

      We were picked up promptly from the resort at 8pm by Telmo who was very knowledgeable about the lights. On the way there we stopped briefly as we did spot the lights, the view was then better when we got to the lake. They were only there for about 15 minutes so we were very lucky! We then got in the suits and in the lake, which was very shallow. The suits can be a little claustrophobic as they are very tight on the head and cover the mouth.
      The view of the stars was amazing and so was the gingerbread and hot juice afterwards. Thanks Telmo and team!
