a very entertaining activity and a very friendly staff, the snowy landscapes take you to a different mute than usual in our daily life, we live in Malaga and never see the snow.

The sessions were great. 10 minutes on snow mobile, husky ride and reindeer sleigh. The shamen was not very chatty and did not look too happy to be surrounded by tourists. The sleds were free for all to use and hot chocolate was delicious
