I made many activities with Safartica (huskies, reindeers, snowmobile...) and all of them were absolutely perfect and well prepared. All the staff is very nice, they help you in everything and they explain you every little thing you want to know. I think the best experience of all was the route with huskies. They were sooo beautiful and the landscape... More

I travelled with my brother from Hong Kong. We joined the aurora sky drive tour organized by the Safartica. We had a wonderful time and the night was amazing. After a 30-min-drive from the Rovaniemi city center, we arrived as a group of eight people at a forest by a frozen lake. The sky was clear and the place was... More

We went to the Thrill of Speed husky safari, which started in the afternoon. We were taken care very well straight from the beginning until the end. People in the front desk office, "dressing room", drivers and the guides were all super nice towards us. It was really pleasant that the group was not big, so the guide could make... More

We booked the Aurora sky drive tour on the very morning of the tour. We were picked up at Santa Claus village and drove to their office at Rovaniemi city centre to get dressed for the hunt. The tour took us away from the city light to a frozen lake called Joutolumpi. The entire sky was filled with aurora activities... More

We booked the 2hr reindeer sleigh ride and it was indicated that we get to "drive" the sleigh. However, after we returned from the ride, we were chased to the bus and return to the office, where "driving certificates" were given. Disappointed trip.

Dear Xiaomaoriji, Thank you for your review, but I am afraid this might not be our safari as we offer only 1h reindeer safari. We have two different 1h reindeer safaris: Arctic day along the reindeer path in the afternoon and Polar night along the reindeer path in the evening for aurora hunting from reindeer sleigh. Both of our safaris... More
