We stayed at Happy Fox Villas for 6 nights and had several activities with the team of Happy Fox. We felt home and enjoyed the company of Kristina and Mikka. If want to stay at a more remote and quiet place outside of the touristic centre of Rovaniemi, and if you want an authentic experience rather than a big group thing organized by a big safari company, then this is the right place. Our kids, age 12, 10 and 8 enjoyed their freedom to run around outdoors and play in the snow. You can stroll down to the lake nearby, do some sledging or simply enjoy the scenery. We followed the snow sculpting workshop, the family fun activity, sauna+dinner as well as the handicraft workshop. It was all worth it. We would recommend to anybody is not looking for a touristic show but an authentic Lappland feel.

We were in Rovaniemi for 6 days but the two outings we made [Family Fun Day and Private Dinner with Santa] with the Mika and Christina from Happy Fox were the highlights of our trip. Mika also went out of his way to sort some difficult logistics for us at the end of our trip. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality - the dinner with Santa is truly something our children will remember for a long time.

We booked sauna and Finnish food experience. The room was very cozy and beautifully cleaned, and most importantly the owners gave us a warm welcome.
The sauna experience was good, well equipped, and it’s a traditional Finnish sauna, which we wanted to do in Rovaniemi.
Then, the traditional Finnish cuisine was amazing, with which we enjoyed coffee/tea, ice cream and fun chat with the owner. The salmon was well cooked, taste lovely, and was served with lots of fresh vegetables, which was a kind of home made meals. Comfortable room and lovely foods made us feel like we were at our real home.
Highly recommended !

We booked Arctic Extreme Ice Swimming and Sauna for 6 people.
Sauna is not equipped to accommodate 6 people.There was no place to change clothes, tiny corridor leading to sauna can fit the most TWO very skinny and small people. There was nor sitting area, no shower, no toilet. Unfortunately, there was no description of the sauna on the website, and we assumed that all listed facilities are there (as it always the case everywhere else).
In addition, we experienced extreme rudeness and inhospitality from the owners of the place.We came 15 min earlier and they told us right away that we would have to leave earlier. That was fine by us, but very unpleasant to hear as a first statement , instead of "Welcome !" .
Out ticket clearly indicated that duration of the activity 3 hours, no pick up provided. In 1 hour toward the activity the owner told us to come out from the sauna. On question why that early if out ticket says 3 hour activity, he said it is always like that, and called his wife! When she arrived, she started to scream, and curse at us, forcing us to leave.(I am not sure how they expect 6 people to change the clothes one by one ,then enjoy the sauna, then put the clothes back in 1 hour time frame???)
Total time we spent at the farm was 1hour 50 min from door to door! Sad, disappointed, frustrated , with bitter taste from such hospitality!

We have spent 2 days at the newly opened Happy Fox suites. Mika and Kristina have created an exceptionnal Place to stay and explore the magic of the Arctic Circle. We had good luck and were able to see the amazing northern lights at the Night Picknic walk with our hosts. Don‘t miss it. We highly recommend. Also, our four children (17,14,12,6) loved it. Cosy Apartments and a very familiar atmosphere. A wunderful Place. Many thanks to Mika & Kristina for their warm hospitality.

The Aurora dinner at the Happy Fox Cottage was a really special and unforgettable experience! Mika and Kristina are really nice and lovely hosts. Kristina prepared a delicious dinner which we have enjoyed at the beautiful fox cottage right in the middle of the forest. After dinner we walked with oil laterns through the forest to find the perfect spot for watching northern lights. They were really supportive in taking the best pictures for us. We have felt very welcomed and we went home with the most amazing memories and pictures. We can definitely recommend this experience with happy fox!

We had an excellent time picking various kinds of berries in the Finnish forests. It snowed unexpectedly during our trip but Kristina and Mika kindly prepared rubber boots for us to keep our shoes dry. We were also very impressed by their knowledge about the fruits and herbs in the area and we learnt a lot about the different berries and plants!

It was a fantastic experience going into the warm tent after picking berries in the cold and eating on homemade rolls, grilled sausages and warm tea.

Would recommend Happy Fox to anyone heading over to Rovaniemi! Thank you Kristina and Mike for your very kind and generous hospitality!

We booked a private tour which included reindeer ride and ice-fishing. Unfortunately, there was not enough snow last winter and Happy Fox's reindeer did not return from the forests yet. However, we were brought to another reindeer farm and given a very short ride on the borrowed reindeer, but I was a bit underwhelmed. I am sure it would have been better if Happy Fox's own reindeer were around! Well, then we went to a very private frozen lake where we (tried to) ice-fish. There were also a number of ice-scooters and bicycles etc for the children to run around and play with. The hosts Mika and Kristina were so sweet and told us lots of stories. All in all we had a great time!

Thank you for your very nice review. And yes, last autumn was a little bit weard about weather and that’s why our reindeers doesn’t come home at all. Lucky our friends had their reindeers in the fence. Naturally reindeers doesn’t like to run, they run only then when they need to escape. They are clever fellows 😄 Anyway we had a really nice time with you. Best regards Mika & Kristina

Great service, fantastic place in the middle of Lapland forest, nice and friendly people, authentic barbecue in the lappish tent in the forest and stunning Aurora at the end of the night. That was a great experience and we hope to come back once! Thanks, Kristina and Mika!
