Daily Departures Winter

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.

Snowmobile and ice-karting rush

2 hrs. snowmobile and ice-karting program 
Daily departure at 16:00 

Double up on fun with both snowmobiles and ice-karts! Let out your inner racer on the karts and cruise through the snowy landscape on snowmobiles. 

We depart from the city on snowmobiles to a private ice-karting track. There we switch the snowmobiles to winter go-karts for a great racing experience. Even though the karts are equipped with 1mm winter spikes, the icy track might give you a spin unless you pay attention when drifting into a corner! You do 2 x 15 minutes ice-karting race, hot drinks are served between the rounds. The fastest ice-karting driver will be rewarded with a diploma and applause! Let the adrenalin rush cool off while cruising back to the city with the snowmobiles.

What we say about this tour: 

“This safari is all about having fun. Ice karting is speedy and perfectly safe and a fun combination with snowmobiling. 

I would recommend this safari for everyone who is up for a good rush. Especially when you travel with a group of fun-loving good friends, this is just the perfect safari for you.” 


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).

Children are allowed to drive the karts, in case they are app 140 cm tall, so that they can reach the pedals. 

Snowmobile safaris
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.
