    Ark was the best guide ever. This activity is worth ever money. Lots of fun and time with the reindeer and dogs, lots of time in the Santa Village. Great story telling about the animals. Great time at the lunch break with tasty food. All involved were so positive, nice, polite, optimistic. Our guide was the best

    Punctual pick-up at our hotel. The welcome at the farm was pleasant, guides available who share their knowledge, good times spent with the animals, sleigh rides a bit short. The time spent with the animals is pleasant and the snacks / meals excellent. We had 2 hours of free time at Santa Claus Village which was enough for us. Very enjoyable day with great memories.

    Excellent day from the beginning to the end of our support, super nice guide! Stroll with reindeer and huskies at the top can be a bit short but worth it!! Meals included very good. Visit of the village but a little disappointed by the lack of animation which could have been nice to know the story of Father Christmas... Very good day rich in discovery.
