The tour was amazing & seeing the lights literally left me speechless! It was a foggy night but our guides found the perfect spot on a frozen lake for us to watch the magic happen. The bbq was good and the whole night was definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

I was picked up by Julie from my hotel who was super welcoming. The dogs were friendly and you could really tell the guides were passionate about them. The ride was incredibly scenic and the dogs were impressive. Credit to Julie for making it a wonderful tour with tonnes of information about the dogs and the surrounding area.

I went for this trip with my wife and daughter, at the onset, they were flexible enough to have my daughter sit in a sleigh behind a snowmobile. The tour starts with they providing warm clothes and boots. They will then explain the way to operate the snowmobile. We wound through the forest and over frozen lakes. Micheal (our host) would periodically stop to check that all were okay. We stopped at a warm wooden hut where we were served the best reindeer stew with warm juice. The icing on the cake was that we managed to see the northern lights. A must recommended.

Onur and his girlfriend gave us a really amazing Aurora night with fire camp and great reindeer soup! :)
They are really a “strong team”: he entertains and she captures all your memories to keep :)

We have long been looking for a nice snowmobile tour in the area of Kiruna and finally decided to do this Tour - which was the completely right choice. Elin picked us up at the hotel and we were on tour for several hours with the snowmobile. It went up and down the hills, through forests, over frozen lakes and a river and we saw some animals - it couldn't have been more beautiful. Elin is so kind and not only organized a great tour, but also explained a lot about the area to us. I did the tour with my mom who was a little bit scared at first, but once we got going we all had a lot of fun and it was an incredible and unique experience. The provided cloths kept us warm the entire time and the snowmobiles were great! 100% recommended and hopefully we will be back soon! :)

This was AMAZING! Loved it, through the beautiful woods and over frozen lakes to a cosy cabin for delicious warm up with moose stew and fire - loved every minute - 4 hours 😁didn’t get to see northern lights as it was snowing and cloudy skies... but that would just have been a massive bonus.

It was an awesome Husky-sled tour. Just excelent.
The support of the owners, motivated my sister (66) to act as a musher for her first time in life suceccfully.
Landscape and experiance with the digs had made it to an outstanding adventure for the two of us.

I really enjoy this tour. He drove us into the forest and we could see the sky so clear with many stars and step by step Aurora just appeared in front of us. It’s quite exciting to ride on reindeer sleighing and also get to feed them. Finally, we got into the Lavu for a nice dinner and tea. They are both really helpful. They kept asking us whether we can stand the coldness. It would be very nice to have a good photographer. Because it’s hard to take with our phone or camera without professional photographer.

The experience was amazing, our instructor was a very relaxed/chilled guy that made us all feel welcomed and comfortable which is a must when doing a fear inducing activity

we did 3 or 4 different climbs per person, all instructions were clear, pick up and drop off was on time and he even did a little detour because we mistook the pick up location

I would recommend (and have recommended) taking this snowmobile tour with Nikko any day of the week. My tour started with a pickup from my hotel in Kiruna to the Mattarahkka lodge the outskirts of Kiruna. The lodge is situated away from lights pollution and in itself a great location to gaze at the northern lights. The first thing on the list was a Sami reindeer stew dinner followed by a snowmobile ride to the top of Mt. Ednamvarri.
During my tour the northern lights started to make a strong appearance while we were having dinner so we quickly wrapped up dinner and made our way to Mt. Ednamvarri on the snowmobile. This was my first time on a snowmobile and Nikko was patient in explaining the procedure to operate the snow mobile safely. We made a stop on the way to the top of the mountain to get a few shots of the Aurora Borealis at its peak. The snowmobile ride takes about 15-20 mins each way and is a fun experience.

Once in a life time vacation! Over the course of 4 days my family and I experienced; Dogsledding meeting the nicest dogs and seeing beautiful nature. We went Ice-fishing with Oscar and Husky Scout. We went on a wildlife safari tour seeing many Moose and Reindeer. And lastly saw the amazing Aurora! All of this was organised by our amazing guide Sarah of “Lights over Lapland” and “Images of Wildlife”. We left the vacation with unique memories, which will be talked about for many years. It was exhilarating and one of the best trips I have ever done!

Amazing! Walking on a frozen lake is not something you do every day. Our expert guide took us around abisko national park and… the view was stunning, thank you!

The tour was not the experience they say they provide. I will sum up the points why I should never book this tour by this company again:
1) We drove away at the Kiruna Guidetur office at 8pm and return at 9.45pm (1,45 instead of the 4 hours the trip should provide).
2) The driver drove us to one place and then drove us back without saying he was going to. When we stood at the office he said the trip was over.
3) When asking for a partial refund they refused to give us more than +/- €20 for a trip that costs over €130.
4) The driver lied about the places he stopped and about not telling us about going back.
5) After more than one hour waiting in the office after returning from the trip. They offered us to finish the trip with the same driver who said that there was 'no chance of seeing the northern lights'.

Summarized the trip was totally not what we booked. It isn't a problem that we didn't see the Northern lights but the way the company handled their fault was really bad.
Don't book the Northern Lights trip at this company.

This is good way to explore the Fjord in Narvik a few hours from Abisko. Our guide Dimitri was knowledgeable about photography and knew all the cool spots along the way to take good photographs of the landscape and the Fjords.

Booked this for 2 however my friend got a positive covid result so we couldn't attend. Disappointed they are still happy to keep the money and not offer any % of refund considering the circumstances were out of our hands.

We had a great evening in Kurravaara. Although missed the northern light, we had a good tourguide and an unforgettable experience on snowmobile.

Nice tour with Miguel (Michael), a very helpful and knowledge guide who was really nice to us. Miguel spent also time with supporting us in taking pictures and the tour involved 3 different locations. I fully recommend this company.

Unforgettable experience in Lapland.
It's not just Aurora watching. We started walking in the snow at night using a headlamp. Once we were at the summit, we ate some local food in a typical Lapland tent.
And at the end, we'd the chance to watch an Aurora.
Incredible experience!!!

Very nice tour on a quiet road surrounded by beautiful landscapes, we saw reindeers, a female moose with her calf and a big male moose that was standing just a few meters away from us. Alex made sure we could take the pictures we wanted and also brought his camera in order to take some professional pictures for us. He was very kind and made sure we were very happy with everything and we had a very nice conversation on the way, drinking the vegan hot chocolate Alex had prepared for us since we don't drink milk :)
Thank you again Alex! Hope to see you soon!
