What people are saying about Sirkka

It was a great experience. Driving through the snowy landscape on a snowmobile. It was about a 30-40 minute drive to the lake where we were able to drill a hole ourselves. Unfortunately we weren't lucky enough to catch a fish, but we were able to warm up by the campfire with delicious tea and a sausage. Gladly again!

Very interesting tour. We learned from the guide how to drill holes in the ice and catch fish. There was hot tea or cocoa and biscuits - everything worked out well and we were a small group by a beautiful lake. We took photos and the tour guide helped us . We liked it a lot .

This combination of snowmobiles, huskies and reindeer was perfect!!! Highly recommended, especially with children. Super nice guide and just enough time everywhere. Would book it again in a heartbeat. Thank you!!! Already the highlight of our holiday.

We had such a laugh. Our guide was great and very helpful. We didn’t catch anything but we were able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We had lovely hot berry juice, hot chocolate and biscuits.
