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.

Ice-karting race

1,5 hr. ice-karting race, transfers by car 
Daily departure 12:00 

There’s nothing more fun than drifting on ice and snow! Winter go-karts will give you a speedy ride on the icy track. 

Racing on our ice track trying to beat your lap time record and leaving your friends behind will bring a smile on your lips, or you might even be laughing out loud. You will soon notice, it’s not all about speed but also about driving skills. What is the right time to make your car drift into the corner? How to get out of the corner faster than anyone else? Come and figure this out! Our timing system will record your laptimes and post them on to a display for you to see and compare with your friends. No driver’s license is needed for ice-karting, so also children can participate – if they are tall enough to reach the pedals on the ice-karts (app. 140 cm). 

Includes: 

- return transfers from your accommodation in Ounasvaara or Santa Claus Village and a pick-up point in city center Rovaniemi
- winter clothing  
- guided excursion according to program description and given information 

What we about this tour:

“Ice-karting is great fun! In case you know go-karting, well just imagine that in an arctic outdoor setting, with an icy track that just might make you spin if your speed-control fails! Which it will, because you get into the driving quickly and just want to enjoy the fun and speed! 
I would recommend this to friends and also for families with older children. Children are allowed to drive the karts, in case they are app 140 cm tall, so that they can reach the pedals.”
