Daily & Weekly 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.

Aurora Tank Ride

3 hrs. program including tank ride & snowmobile sledge ride
Daily Departure 19:00

Riding a genuine 15-ton Russian tank through a nocturnal forest – a bucket list item

In a secluded forest area on the Arctic Circle you get to board a big Russian tank, originating from the 1970’s. Your guide introduces you to this monster vehicle and as soon as you have boarded it, we take off, driving on both flat land and uphill.
We step out of the tank to enjoy the lovely northern sky – hopefully flaming with northern lights. At the camp fire some hot beverages and snacks are served. We return to Lumi Resort by snowmobile sledge.

70 € / child (4-14 years)


- return transfers from your accommodation in Santa Claus Village, Ounasvaara and Rovaniemi city center

JP’s message 

“I am thrilled to be able to offer a genuine tank ride to our guests! In case you are an enthusiast of retro heavy weaponry or just up for a totally crazy experience, I am sure you will be as thrilled as I am by our tank! The tank has been stripped of all arms and is totally used for fun nowadays. We drive in a dedicated area, with respect for the nature. The Aurora Borealis are not the main star of this program, they will just crown the program whose star is "Igor" the tank."

Practical Information:

All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2018 – 31.3.2019, 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).

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.
