Snowmobile Safari

From £105 pp

What You'll Do

Get behind the handlebars of a snowmobile and embark on a white-knuckle ride around the stunning landscape, and get a taste of what it's like to live as a Laplander.

Start your Lapland adventure by receiving a full, comprehensive introduction on how to handle a snowmobile, then set off into the wilderness, crashing through snowdrifts and sending powdery clouds through the still, pure air.

During the polar night, which lasts for forty days, the sun remains behind the horizon. The immeasurable wilderness is covered by the morning dusk that soon fades into the deep blue twilight.

The breathtakingly beautiful landscape of the fells, the deep snowdrifts, and the snow hooded trees line the route that takes you comfortably away from the relative bustle of Saariselkä.

Along the way, we will stop to take photographs of the otherworldly scenery and to enjoy a light meal and coffee. We may even be joined by a curious Siberian jay that, according to old folk tales, are departed woodsmen…
