Taste of wilderness
2 hrs. Snowmobile safari
Daily departures 14:00
This safari is a good option for those who want to get a feel for snowmobiling as well as for families with children.
Even if we start from Rovaniemi centre, we will get the taste of the wilderness surrounding the town. We take it easy and ensure that you are comfortable with the snowmobile and make a few stops on the way. Feel free to ask your guide about snowmobiling in general or for some tricks on how to drive, unless you are busy taking pictures of the arctic beauty around you!

50 € / child (4-14 years)
- return transfers from your accommodation (within 10 km from Rovaniemi city)

“Taste of wilderness is good as an introduction to snowmobiling and due to its shorter duration, also good for families with children. In Rovaniemi we will make it from town to the wilderness and back in two hours, so even if two hours is all the time you can spare for snowmobiling, it is well invested in this safari.
I would recommend this safari to friends, couples and families. Children travel in a sledge, with warm covers, so they will be warm enough.”
All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2017 – 31.3.2018, or due to prevailing weather and snow conditions. Daily Departures are operated for min 2 persons paying the adult fare (2 persons / snowmobile). Private excursions are available for min 6 persons (adult fare).
The snowmobiles and you as the snowmobile driver or passenger are covered by our insurance. The self-liability on damage of snowmobiles is max. 1 000 € / snowmobile. With a self-liability waiver (29 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 299 € / snowmobile.
All our snowmobile safaris include pick-up service from accommodations in Rovaniemi town, Santa Claus Village and Ounasvaara. We will inform you on the pick up time, which is 30-45 min before departure time, depending on the location of the accommodation. You will first be taken to our safari house, where you get the outdoor gear and where you can leave your jacket and shoes for the time of the safari. You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions.
The duration of the actual safari, the time we drive snowmobiles, is the time mentioned in the excursion. The total duration is app. 45-60 minutes longer than the given time, as we transfer and equip you. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety.
Children travel in a sledge pulled by your snowmobile or the guide’s snowmobile. In case a child prefers to travel as a passenger of a snowmobile, he / she must be tall enough to reach the handles and treads and strong enough to hold on tight. When a child travels on the snowmobile and not in a sledge pulled by a snowmobile, adult price (2 person / snowmobile) applies.
Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Xtrim –model. We have selected this model, as they are extremely comfortable to drive and as they are gentle to the environment, they are practically smoke and smell free.
Arctic Lifestyle reserves the right to change the price, program, inclusions and duration of each tour, due to weather conditions and unexpected occurrences.
