Activity description

Explore the magic Arctic Circle landscape on this snowmobile safari deep into Lapland's outer limits from Rovaniemi. Welcoming participants of all ages on this family-friendly adventure!

This tour takes place from Rovaniemi on the outskirts of the Finnish Taiga. Part of the Lapland area of the Arctic Circle, this Boreal Forest is the world’s biggest wilderness - stretching east in an unbroken belt from Norway to Newfoundland.

You will start by meeting your guide in Rovaniemi for this full-day or half-day snowmobile safari (pick-up is available within a 15km driving distance). Suited to groups of friends and families, this activity is ideal for total beginners and snow experts alike. You will receive a safety briefing and professional winter gear. Snowmobiles will be driven in pairs (twin riding), with a driver and a passenger on each snowmobile, and the opportunity to switch during the ride. Smaller children will sit in a sled and be pulled by the guide's snowmobile.

You will set off to explore the area’s distinctive coniferous tree line – following footprints in the snow to mystical new horizons. On a scenic route into the very heart of this immense woodland, learn how to drive out of the saddle – weaving through the dense forest to reach a wilderness cottage. You will warm up by the open fire as you enjoy a traditional campfire BBQ meal of chicken breast, sweet potato, Lappish bread, marshmallows and hot blueberry juice (vegetarian/vegan alternative upon request).

After taking in the peaceful surroundings, you set out on the second part of the tour to a frozen lake, driving to higher altitudes to better appreciate the landscape from a different viewpoint. Following your guide back into town, your transport will be waiting to take you back to your accommodations.

This snowmobile safari is a fun day out for all of the family in beautiful Finnish Lapland. Book your excursion from Rovaniemi now!

Tolle Tour durch verschneite Wälder.

A full day with a great team of guides, beautiful location and well maintained machines. As a 50 ish female I found it quite exhausting and eventually rode pillion as the tracks are incredibly bumpy.

C'était un très belle expédition malgré les condition de neige faible du coup beaucoup de bosses et sur la fin très épuisant. Il faudrait plus de pauses pour se détendre et prendre des photos.
