Great experience! we were picked up punctually at our hotel and taken to the departure point. there we got adapted clothes and we got ready for a 9km ride with the snowmobile. This drive took us to a cabin somewhere in the woods. There we could enjoy a hot drink and warm up our food over the wood fire. Once the Northern Lights became visible, we went outside where we could see them dancing from all sides. The guides took us to a small lake 10 meters away where we could see the light even better. Stunned, few stood in the middle of the lake watching the northern lights. The guide was fantastic and gave us a unique and pleasant experience. Highly recommended!!

Absolutely great, smart and competent toboggan ride as a guide, a well-kept route and a wonderful old café. Appropriately in the woods and on ice sections. Safari facilities clean and up-to-date, good sleds! 10/10 outings. It still happened to be the only one in the sledge to drive briskly.

A very nice day with a nice guide. We felt well taken care of and had a lot of fun. The three hours were even extended a bit (of course after asking if we still had time and inclination) Thanks for the nice day and the good equipment

Great experience. Attentive guide. Just the right time to be exposed and decide if you would like a longer ride.

Thank you so much, Antonin. For a great service and memorable experience!
