The activities were very fun, the activities were not dangerous. The Guids are very nice and can help you with anything. I recommend it to everyone, even to families with young children.

You want to hunt the lights go with this people! We booked small group tour, they upgraded us at no additional cost and gave us private tour. We were surprised to picked up by private car instead a bus and driver/guide speaker very well clear English. He knew the area well that answer all our questions about town, country, living, the lights. He took us far away from the city where we had complete dark sky just stars... We have 2 small children ( 2 years old and 6 years old). He was very kind, did not mind my screaming 2 years old! He took us to small cabin between woods, set fire, give us cookies, hot chocolate ( we didnt want hot dogs bcz we vegetarians). He keep go out for us searching the lights, freezing instead we go with kids... we stayed with kids put them sleep he comes back every 10 min to (2x) to say there is nothing and go back. By 3rd time he come he just smiled and shake his head :) we understand what was that mean and run. He stayed with our sleeping kids for hours while we just watched the light. He was amazing! He didn't had to babysit but he did which was so kind of him. Because of him we enjoyed the light for hours. Sky was so clear, lights were so visible we watched some big ones then out of no where there was.... Pink auro! Very rare auro we had chance to watch for good 10 min before green ones back completely. This was our first try , first day and we catched them. Thanks to this amazing people. Unfortunately we booked another snowmobile hunting light tours for the day after ( withh another company) was a big time fail and waste of money. We should just book another day with this company. Dont be me, book all your hunting with them :)

The area that Alex lives in is very remote with the nearest property being a couple of miles away. You drive down a single lane track with Alex happily telling you how often he has to take the snow plough out and clear it just so he has access to everything. Once he explains how the sauna works he leaves you to it for a couple of hours and goes to prepare the BBQ salmon and potatoes. The sauna itself is a wood burning one and for me it was a million times better than the saunas you are probably used to in hotels etc. I usually cant last very long in those places.
It's just a short walk through the snow to the frozen lake and I'm so glad i was brave enough to jump in as it really was a once in a lifetime experience. Would highly recommend it to everyone.
The food we had was amazing and also in such an idyllic location. This is the food experience that everyone else is trying to recreate in all the hotels and restaurants. We had the same type of meal of salmon and potatoes and sour cream a couple of other times on the trip but this was the best by far...
Do yourself a favour and book this trip.

We booked the full day adventure to the Ranua Zoo and Lappish evening in the wilderness with sauna, ice swimming and dinner. We enjoyed every minute from being picked up and driven out of town to the Zoo and spending the morning looking at the animals, having lunch and then back to our accommodation for some relaxation before being picked up again and being taken to a cute little cottage in the forest where we enjoyed a sauna and a dip into the ice lake. The lake was breathtaking (literally), but an amazing experience. Alex and his wife then prepared a beautiful dinner that we ate in the cosy cottage. They were wonderful hosts and lovely people. I would highly recommend this company and our time spent with them has been one of the highlights of our trip.
