Boyfriend and I took the Northern Lights Hunting with Husky Sled tour and it was hands down the best night of our 10 day trip to Finland. Antonela and Alize were fantastic guides: knowledgeable, energetic, and friendly. And throughout the trip they was taking pictures of everyone that they later shared (including when the lights showed up!). The husky ranch owners were so nice and treated their dogs very well which was important to us as we look for responsible tourism especially with treatment of animals. They also let us spend time hanging out with the dogs while they ran about and answered all the questions we had. Many people comment on the shortness of the husky ride but we thought the 30 min was a perfect amount of time (which they are very open and upfront about).

After our sled ride we started enjoying some tea outside the husky ranch while the guides looked for an area do the best chance to see the lights as it was pretty overcast. In a magically perfect way, the clouds opened up the Bz rating dropped and we got a light show as we enjoyed our tea. It was PERFECTION.

After that, they once again were on the hunt and took us to a camping locations where we thought we would have the best chance with the clouds. It was an incredibly beautiful lake side wooden shelter where we got to enjoy a fire while roasting sausages & marshmallows.

Sadly no more lights but still the dedication of the guides to search and give us the best chance was awesome.

10/10 recommend this tour and group!

Our holiday with Nordic unique travels in Finnish Lapland was excellent! In addition to the wonderful place, the tour guides and the staff at the agency made it a truly remarkable holiday. Although we were quite prepared for the cold, they also offered the full Arctic gear for mostly all activities. All transfers and arrangements went very smoothly and they were always punctual on all occasions. The meals were very nice (where included) and the guides chose the best places that catered for vegetarians (as we were).

Massive thanks to Marcelo who is one of the best and most helpful travel agents I've ever come across (having travelled quite a bit!). I feel very lucky to have found him and his company on tour radar! He helped us put together an amazing itinerary and recommended the best accomodation as well as tours that we thoroughly loved. He was always very prompt in replying, very knowledgeable and provided accurate answers to all our questions when we were in the planning stages. He is a true asset to the company and without him we may not have been able to organise our holiday to perfection!

Sarka was the best guide we had on our tour (icebreaker). She is a lovely person, extremely friendly and provided exceptional customer service. Really made our trip very special and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time throughout!

We were happy to have Malcolm as our guide on the snowmobile tour as he was highly experienced and skilled. Being very new to this activity, we needed extra guidance which he kindly provided and also supported us patiently to ensure that we thoroughly enjoyed the unique experience. His passion and enthusiasm for snowmobiling and Finland was very heartwarming :)

Clement was a very pleasant and helpful guide, never rushing us and ensuring we had a beautiful time at one my most favourite places (Ranua zoo).

I cannot recommend them highly enough! We would love to visit Lapland again and wouldn't think twice about booking with them :)))

It was the last day of our winter break in Lapland and we had the idea of having a night-time sauna and a jacuzzi on the shores of a lake, therefore we decided to book this activity at Nordic Unique Travels. We knew that it would have been unique and fascinating but not that much. First of all we met our guide, a french girl whose name is Oriane. She is so friendly and she has the ability to put you immediately at ease. Moreover she speaks fluently and clearly english. She drove us to this wonderful place about 15 minutes from Rovaniemi and gave us all we need to really enjoy ourselves inside the sauna ( from towels to cold drinkable water ). The sauna itself was brand new, made of black fragrant wood and really spacious whereas the 2 jacuzzis were outdoor, just in front of the lake. The lake was not only part of a magnificent landscape, it was also a brave way to cool you down after the sauna or the jacuzzi. After two hours of relax she invited us to eat marshmallows and drink berry juice in front of a campfire, inside a typical lappish kota while we spent a great time talking to this guide who has the rare quality of being "human" as well as professional.
I highly recommend trying this experience, for us it was worth all the money spent.

What a lovely day out! We were disappointed as the weather is too cloudy to see the Lights so we decided on a day trip. Our guides Azzurra, Alizé and Albert were marvellous and could not have taken better care of us. We spent most of our time listening and talking to Albert who was friendly, helpful and patient, but every one of the guides was great. We had a refreshing and beautiful hike through a snowy, silent forest. I’m in my 60s with a knee replacement; the hike was not a problem and felt like just the right level of exercise without being too challenging. (We clocked 10000 steps when we sat down for our hot food at the end of the hike). As a vegan and vegetarian we were able to cook our corn over an open fire, whilst others cooked sausages snd marshmallows.) All tours are pretty pricey in Lapland but we felt this was excellent value; we had a lovely day and learned a lot about the local environment and nature. Thanks to Azzurra and Alizé for taking such good care of us and a special shout out to Albert for his care, attention and being a mine information.

We have travelled extensively as a couple and have been on many tours but these guys are on top of the game. We booked a Northern Lights tour and or hosts were 'Jordi' and 'Barnabus' . They went above and beyond. We stayed out longer then the tour was advertised for to make sure we had the best chance to spot the lights and thanks to them we did. We had plenty of barbeque sausages and hot berry juice to keep us warm. Jordi captured some amazing photos and helped everyone with their cameras to make sure the photos were captured as best as possible. 2 fantastic tour guides.

We also done a Snowmobile and animals day with 'Anders'. This was equally as good as the first tour, Anders made sure that everyone on the tour was having a great time. The husky and reindeer farm was great fun and you could tell that the animals were well cared for. The snowmobiling was great fun and Anders made sure that every was going at a pace that was comfortable for them.

TLDR: Don't hesitate just book the tour!

Did 3 tours with Nordic Unique Travels and they were all arranged perfectly!
The first one was a 10km husky sleigh ride, our guide Lorenzo drove us to a husky farm an hour drive away from Rovaniemi. These people take really good care of the dogs and it was an unforgettable experience in the middle of the woods.
The second tour was the snowmobiling and ice fishing experience. We were a group of almost 40 students, but they arranged it perfectly and divided us into two groups. A special thanks to our guides Lorenzo, Jordi and Matias!
The last tour we did was the northern lights photography tour with Lorenzo. We saw beautiful northern lights and received a lot of pictures the day after. Afterwards, we enjoyed a small barbeque where we had the chance to warm up a little bit.
Highly recommended!

Our family was really excited about doing this night tour to see the northern lights and experience a night ride. First, we were strongly encouraged NOT to use the snow suits. We were told it’s not really that cold; not to worry of was only just 1 degree. Super bad advice! Most people took the advice, and their bodies and hands were frozen the whole trip. We were even being told how to shake our bodies to keep our hands from freezing half way Through the ride. ( We could of just been given gloves to begin with....). Anyway, as soon as we left we were also told there would be no northern lights, they haven’t seen them in many months. So, why was this the title of the tour? A day time ride is way better to see the forest and appreciate where you are in the world. I would not recommend the night snowmobile ride just because you see nothing and it’s generally colder and much windier.

Dear Vashon4family, Thank you for your feedback, we sometimes tell to people that already have good snow gears to not wear overalls because the clothes are enough, mostly if it was +1 one degree, and with overalls you can sweat and get more cold. Sorry to hear that you were too cold during the experience, anyway we always give gloves for snowmobile rides so it is really weird if you didn't recieve any. I don't know also who told you that we haven't seen the northern lights for months because that is also not true. We are sorry that you did not enjoy the snowmobile ride, and we would have to have more information about it so we can know what to do about it. Let us know at lorenzo@nordictravels.eu Best regards, Lorenzo, Nordic Unique Travels

It's our pleasure to have Clement as our tour guide during this trip. We actually feel awkward when we met up because it's also our first time to travel with a tour guide. Clement (we called him Ah Hao) break the ice when we start our journey by introducing the details for our trip yet we get more excited after some conversations. He really did a good job in multitasking as we actually chat about 3-4 hours while he was driving us to next destination. He shared lot of stories that he experienced in Finland & Norway so we could understand more and adapt to the environment. He put efforts to help us looking for northern lights (driving here and there with some snowstorm) even though that's not our main interest and well.. is not our lucky day to see northern light. There are still many small details about his good will in helping us at any point of time! It's kinda upset to split away with Ah Hao when it comes to the end of the whole trip even we only knew for 3 days, we really appreciate all the times we travel and have fun together! We would definitely pick u again as our tour guide for next visit!! We will keep in touch and all the best to you! (p/s: We feel so lucky to meet you twice on the next two days during our stay in Rovaniemi!)

My activity with Unique Nordic Travels was quite spontaneous. I arrived in Rovaniemi on a Friday afternoon, as a solo traveler, without an activity booked, and they were able to add me to a snowshoeing northern lights tour. The booking was so easy, and they made sure I knew where to go and what time we were heading out. The activity was quite enjoyable.

What enhanced my overall experience was the tour guide, Antonela! She was amazing at guiding us through the forest at night. It was still early in the season, so the lake was not fully covered and safe to cross. Regardless, I felt comfortable with her as my guide. I also had a lot of fun chopping wood, and we built an impressive campfire! Thank you, Antonela, for helping me have such a fun first activity in Rovaniemi!
