These folks know what they are doing. I work in the travel industry and was 100% impressed with the organization, operations and safety during our 3 day snowmobile trip. I couldn't more highly recommend them. Very good experience with awesome guides!

We just came back from finland and we had a three days snowmobil safari with Lapland Safaris.
Guides were incradible and professional helped us all the time when we fell and when we were cold.
A great experiance, a must go on Saariselka!

We took both the Northern Lights on Snowmobile tour and the snowshoe walk. Both were great experiences, and our guides were patient and friendly, taking excellent care of us along the way. We had two snowmobiles drive off the road and sink in the deep snow, and our guides spent 10 minutes pulling them out (and they are super heavy!), not once losing their good humor. It was all very well organized, very safe and very comfortable.

My group attempted to visit a Reindeer Farm, an evening sleigh ride.
We were a booking through the hotel. The staff assured us that we would be able to receive one piece snow suits from the Safari shop. We stated we did not want to have any makeshift coverings as we had done so with an earlier event with a different vendor, and we were not as warm as we had hoped (that one was our own mistake, not the vendor!).

When we were picked up from the hotel, we did not stop at the safari shop even though we told them we were expecting to pick up suits there. We asked the driver would they have suits for us at the farm, which he assured us they would.

When we arrived at the farm the attendant basically ignored us, suiting up all the others, then came to our party and stated "we have nothing for you - we will give you extra blankets and furs." She could have offered us the largest size, and given us a go at trying something on, but no - she sized us up and decided she would not assist us other that something to throw on us.

We elected to not take the sleigh ride. It was a humiliating experience, as we were assured in advance that we would have a suit, not blankets. It was our last night in Saariselka so we just totally had to miss out on what we thought would be a magical experience.

Dear Austin T,

We are trully sorry that your last day in Saariselkä went that way. The true is that we do have XXXL overalls in our office in Saariselkä, but the reindeer farm went straight to the farm instead to visit our office to pick up extra large sized equipment, and the hotel never informed us about the need of a big size.

We have been now discussing with the suppliers to avoid this situation in the future. As said as the beginning, we are very sorry, but this will never happen again.

If you ever come to visit Lapland, we will make sure that you'll have a great experience from the first to the last day.

Regards from Lapland!
