Terrible company. Inadequate training on the snowmobile safari. Make sure you practice plenty before going out on the safari. You will be charged EUR 850 if you crash which is very easy as they are so fast and very easily done due to inadequate care and attention from the instructor. You are made to aign a piece of A4 paper... More

Given all the activities you can undertake, you holiday easily becomes an expensive undertaking. We went on a tour with snowmobiles which is nice but Could be a bit more adventurous and with smaller groups does not become a slow moving group. Robin the snow walking instructor is a very friendly Scott which entertains and looks after his group.

Snowmobile, snowshoeing, husky ride: Everything is well organised and a lot of fun! Would recommend it to everybody to explore the possibilities of Lapland during the winter! Nice staff, good equipment; just great!

Just come back from a week's skiing in Ruka and tried 2 activities booked with Ruka Adventures, ice karting and Starlight Safari. Both were great trips, and great fun, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company if you want something a bit different to try. Ice karting was very well organised, trial laps followed by time trials and then a... More

We were a group of 6 adults and 1 child. We all joined an afternoon/evening snowmobile safari and all of us had an amazing time. We were split into a fast and slower group which worked really well keeping everyone happy. Hot drinks and sausages half way were lovely.
