Taste of wilderness
2 hrs. snowmobile safari
Daily departures 10:00
This safari is a good option for those who want to get a feel for snowmobiling as well as for families with children.
After your pick up, we are heading to our own destination in Olleronvaara (around 10 km from the city) were you can get the taste of the wilderness and real beauty of our nature. We take it easy and ensure that you are comfortable with the snowmobile and make a few stops on the way. Feel free to ask your guide about snowmobiling in general or for some tricks on how to drive, unless you are busy taking pictures of the arctic beauty around you!

- guided excursion according to program description and given information
Self-liability waiver, 19 € / driver
What we say about this tour:
“Taste of wilderness is good as an introduction to snowmobiling and due to its shorter duration, also good for families with children. In Rovaniemi we will make it from town to the wilderness and back in two hours, so even if two hours is all the time you can spare for snowmobiling, it is well invested in this safari.
I would recommend this safari to friends, couples and families. Children travel in a sledge, with warm covers, so they will be warm enough.”
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.
