Excellent service! Have rented two Stand Up Paddling boards from Arctic Joy. Have never done it before, but the lady renting them out was very helpful: gave all instructions in a nutshell, provided us with ziplock plastic bags for our phones and waterproof bag, suggested the best route.

Best Lapland Guide! Kristiina Nuorivaara with Arctic Joy helped to make our 20th anniversary trip to Lapland, Finland absolutely fabulous. We booked two day long excursions with her, one to the Rauna Zoo, and a hike through the forest that culminated in lunch lakeside over an open fire and me presenting My wife with a necklace.

Kristiina's vast knowledge of Finnish flora and fauna was amazing. Also, her level of customer service and attention to detail was nothing short of spectacular. I could not (seriously) be more pleased than I am with the services we received from Arctic Joy. Karen and I both would not dream of using anyone else for a Lapland guide service.

We will return, and we will be using Kristiina and Arctic Joy when we do. Highly highly recommend!

I booked a 3h snowshoeing trip with Kristiina. The fact that she takes solo travellers is beyond amazing. She is easy to get in touch with.

The trip through the woods had the perfect "winter wonderland" feel. She is super knowledgeable about everything and really friendly.

I would recommend to book with Arctic Joy!

A Perfect Winter Wonderland Experience. Kristiina's detailed messages to me as I was attempting to organize my days in Rovaniemi were an indication of the amazing experiences we were to have. Traveling with Kristiina for two days was certainly a joyful experience for me. I only wish I had booked more activities!

We hiked Korouoma Canyon on a beautiful cold wintry day where she shared her extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna. Have you ever witnessed the instant freezing of hot water as it is tossed in the air? Have you ever given a tree a "yoga hug?" Have you ever had to cling to ropes as you descend or ascend hilly snow covered narrow trails? It's an amazing experience!

She is a petite gal who carried approximately 24 pounds of supplies in her backpack for the entire day. In her backpack she had an ax, extra firewood, and our dinner of salmon. We arrived at a lean to for our dinner. Luckily, the only other group we had me on the trails for the entire day was just finishing their dinner so we did not have to start our own fire. However, with her expertise, that would not have been an issue.

All hikers are expected to chop firewood for the next hikers. She chopped the wood; I tried but not too successfully. However, it was a fun experience. The last part of the hike was all uphill as we walked by the light of the moon and listened to the snow crunching under our feet but still aware of the total silence of our surroundings.

Kristiina is highly professional, knowledgeable, and shares a wealth of information about Lapland. If you want to have a perfect experience in Lapland, she is the guide to contact!
