Fisherman’s luck snowmobile safari
3 hrs. snowmobile safari
Departure Monday - Saturday at 10:00
Head for the wild waters on your snowmobile and learn all about the favorite leisure time activity of the locals.
We cruise leisurely on snowmobiles to a good fishing location. You will learn the secrets of ice fishing from a local expert; your guide. Catch is not guaranteed, but most likely for patient fishermen. However, the most important thing is to enjoy the tranquillity and silence of the wintry forest. Possible catch will be prepared to a tasty snack by the campfire – have you ever tasted fish that is this fresh? If you are out of Fisherman’s luck today, there will still be a tasty snack for you.
- return transfers from your accommodation in Ounasvaara or Santa Claus Village and a pick-up point in city center Rovaniemi

Self-liability waiver, 19 € / driver
What we say about this tour:
“Whenever I can, I get out on a wilderness lake for ice fishing. The main thing is not the catch; it is the silence and the nature. It is like a break for every day life. Of course, I do my best to catch some fish too, as nothing beats the flavour of fresh fish fried by a campfire.
I would recommend this safari for friends and couples. This is snowmobiling with a strong local flavour, I am sure you will love it!”
All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2019 – 31.3.2020, 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 8 persons (adult fare 2 persons / snowmobile).
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 (19 €) 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.
