6 hrs. snowmobile safari

Once you get used to the driving you will start to enjoy the scenery. A scrumptious lunch is prepared by the campfire while you rest and exchange driving experiences you’re your fellow travellers.

What we say about this tour:
“This is pretty much my signature safari, this is how I do it when I go out snowmobiling with my friends. Perfect mix of tranquillity, relaxation, speed and adventure. You never for sure know what happens when you get to the backwoods of Rovaniemi, but do not worry, our guides are well trained and prepared for everything. In case the weather is really cold, we can have an indoor lunch during the day.“
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).
Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Rave, Xtrim and Boondocker–models. 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.
Children travel in a sledge pulled by 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.
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. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety.
You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions. Your own jacket and shoes remain at the safari house during the tour.
