It was a fun activity, we learned something about skiing as well as about Kemis history. Thanks!


Thanks, it was a lot of fun!


It was lovely! We are cross-country skiing novices and Marco was a fantastic teacher. He had us up to speed in no time. A beautiful area and a knowledgeable guide - 10/10 would recommend!


Marko is a fantastic host! Great group experience. We got the chance to see auroras and the guys treated us incredibly at the fire camp. We would absolutely repeat.


Top Notch!
The campfire kept us alive even in -15°C degrees.
Marko has been a great guide and a great person, sharing his experiences and taking professional pictures of us and the aurora. Everything was so well taken care of. Kiitos! He knows the fundamentals of the Aurora hunt, which makes hunting very easy and more importantly very result oriented for us.

I recommend Marko 100%.
