Snowmobile Safari

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 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…

Markku

I was born and raised in Finland and for the last twenty years now I've been offering authentic, immersive experiences in the region of Lapland. Originally, I worked with my sister as operations manager for her tour company. So, finding,  sourcing and planning trips and excursions and this equipped me with a vast knowledge of the area and the tours that were being offered.
