We are proud to introduce our guests to the arctic lifestyle, regardless of how short or long your stay is. Our aim is to give our guests “a piece of local ambiance” to carry in their memories. Our daily departures of Lapland lifestyle safaris and excursions give you a taste of the north, wether you are traveling with your family, friends or as a couple.

Your trip to Lapland is not complete without an encounter with the huskies!

A short transfer takes you to the husky farm, where the enthusiastic arctic sled dogs greet you with barking and jumping - as if they were saying, come on, let's go. Huskies are passionate about running and that is why they are eager to take off with you in their sledge. But first things first: instructions on safety and driving. You and a friend are sharing a team of huskies and can take turns in mushing (driving) and being a passenger.

The route of 14-18 km (depending on weather and snow conditions as well as driving skills) takes you through an enchanted winter landscape. There will be stops when you can change places as musher and passenger. You will also have some photogenic moments midst the stunning nature and with the beautiful dogs. Once they have ran off some energy, they are calmer and let you enjoy the silent drive. 

Back at the farm we will gather around the camp fire to hear the mushers tell about life with huskies. You will of course also have time to cuddle and pat your newfound friends before it is time to leave the husky farm.

Practical information: 

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 all 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 safris 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.
