My husband and I went on an Aurora hunt with Eero the other day. It was absolutely amazing! His knowledge and his passion is very inspiring! He did everything in his power to make sure that we find some Auroras, and we did :). I'm glad we booked the tour with him as it was one of the highlights of our trip! We highly recommend anybody to book trips with Eero and his famialy!

Thank Suz H

Dear Suz H,

Thank you very much for you two. You sincere eagerness to see Northernlights inspired myself so much :)

Before this tour I did a lot of background work cause I knew how challenging it would be on that night. I had many plans for you but
quite often also instincts takes power about me and start to guide as happened - after hard trying we really were lucky and saw Auroras. What a monent with you :)

Thank you very much for your kind feedback and warmly welcome back.

Best regards
Eero

We had fantastic time when Kristiina took us to see the Auroras. She was very friendly, warm and really knew what she was talking about. She told us all the interesting facts about the Northern Lights and stars. We also made a campfire and grilled some sausages. And the most importantly, we were lucky to see the most incredible light show on the sky! What a perfect night! Thank you so much. :-)

Dear sallailona,

Kristiina told me how nice it was guide you and how open and friendly you were. It was great pleasure for her.

Northern lights are fantastic phenomenon also for all of us who lives in Finland but specially for them who sees Northern lights first time ever in Lapland. You never forget it and you want to come back on one day :)

Good luck is always needed during this kind of tour but experinced guide as Kristiina can hunt best timing, place and possibility for you.

I will tell to Kristiina for your supportive feedaback.

All the best for you and warmly welcome back,

Best regards

Eero

We had the opportunity to take a 4 day break with our French friends at Pyhätunturi . We rented a cottage and contacted Call of the Wilderness for reindeer safari and snow shoe hiking. Eero (the entrepreneur himself) sorted everything from thermal clothing, shoes and the rest of the gear. He took us personally to all the activities telling great tales of the indigenous history in the area of the Same people.

We saw beautiful sights, listened great stories around a camp fire and all the our needs were met to 100% satisfaction. Thank you Eero for a great experience.

As a foot note is should be noted about Pyhä-Luosto national park that is a special experience for the ones interested in pristine nature, fabulous views and fantastic services without the hoards of mass tourist groups. Take your time, hook up with Eero for a tailored experience and you will go home with a permanent smile for a month!

We have just spent a week in Pyha and used this company to book some trips. We booked a northern lights trip by car and a reindeer safari. The company were easy to communicate with via email to enquire and book. They tried to find the best night to undertake the northern lights trip and advised us that there were no guarantees and it was up to us if we wanted to try. We didn’t see the northern lights but had a lovely trip with a great guide who made he trip educational and fun. It was worth it for the fire and sausages in the forest.

There were only 2 of us in the trip to the reindeer farm and we had the same guide as the night before who stayed with us during the trip to help us communicate with the farm owner who ran the trip.

I can’t recommend the company enough. Although we were unable to go in to book the excursions as they were a bit further out they couldn’t have been more helpful by email and let us pay cash when they picked us up which was good for us.

Check them out if you are staying in Pyha!

Dear clarelincoln,

Thank you very much for your kind feedback.

This winter has been exceptional because of variable weather - everywhere in Lapland. We do always careful background work for Northern Light tours and try to find best evening for You but sometimes we can´t win.

Reindeer safari and visit to the farm gives you also something to remember - they are handsome animals and has important history for us and means so much for all of us.

I will tell your friendly feedback to our guide Antti .

We are happy that You liked so much your tour and our way to help and find great experiences from Lapland.
All the best for you and warmly welcome back.
