Operated in Rovaniemi. Each person driving a snowmobile must be at least 18 years old and hold a valid driving license (B). Please remember to take your driving license with you.
Two persons per snowmobile. For groups of 3 persons or other odd number of people, we highly recommend purchasing one single driver supplement.
Snowmobile driver is held liable for any damages caused to the vehicle. Personal self-liability is max. 900 €/person/snowmobile/case of accident. By purchasing a 15 € self-liability insurance before the start of the safari, you reduce the amount of self-liability down to max. 150 €/person/snowmobile/case of accident. Self-liability insurance is personal and valid in one snowmobile safari.
Not suitable for children less than 12 years old. If a child over 140 cm wishes to sit in a snowmobile as a passenger, a full adult price will be charged (according to availability).
Transfers from/to accommodations are included outside city center yet within 10 km distance from our office. Winter clothing include thermal overall, winter boots, woollen socks, woollen scarf, beanie and gloves.

You can pay through the internet, through our website. This is by far the easiest, safest and fastest way to reserve and pay for your adventure. You will receive a voucher as a confirmation via e-mail which you will need to bring with you for your trip. You will always get a voucher by email: REMEMBER TO PRINT IT OUT AND BRING IT ALONG OR MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN SHOW IT ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE!
There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.
If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call or email our office directly, the phone number is +358 40 744 2567. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form. What we need to have is your name, how many people are in your party, where you are staying, a way of contacting you either an e-mail or a phone number and what tour you are trying to book.
Safety is very important on our guided tours. Even if everything is well considered, accidents are possible, because of human error. The snowmobile is always covered with traffic insurance, as demanded by the law. This insurance covers all the possible costs that come to the rider, passenger or possible third party persons (transportation, medical treatment, hospital, doctor, surgery) or third party vehicle (damages, broken parts, repair costs). However, this insurance DOES NOT cover the costs that occur to your own snowmobile, if you are the guilty party for the accident. Because of this, participants will sign a document, where they agree that they are responsible for riding the snowmobile (steering, accelerating, using breaks, following the laws, regulations and instructions), they have a valid driving license and they are not under the influence of alcohol or any drugs.
If an accident happens, the guide will be in charge of the situation and he/she will focus first on people’s safety and first aid. After that part is clear, he/she will monitor the vehicles and make the decision on continuing or aborting the tour.
Self-liability in the case of damages is 900€. A participant can buy an additional self-liability waiver (15€ per driver) before the safari starts and reduce his/her self-liability to 150€.
Outside of the snowmobiling, we recommend a travel insurance that will cover other activities.
Snowmobile trails have official speed limits, controlled by local police officers. Speed limits are shown with traffic signs but if there is an area without the traffic signs, the following limits will remain; maximum 60 km/h on the trail, maximum 80 km/h on ice covered water areas and maximum 40 km/h with a snowmobile pulling a sledge.
On guided snowmobile tours the speed is related to the maximum speed limit of the area BUT our first priority is the safety and the skill level of the group. The guide will monitor how the people in the group are riding and the speed is always related to that. Another important thing is the condition of the trail and weather conditions in general. The target on guided tours is to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all the participants, also for the ones with no experience at all.
Before and during activities on the multi-day and/or snowmobile tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.
After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.
Please note that Finnish law prohibits driving a snowmobile under the influence of alcohol or any narcotic product. As responsible tour operators, we reserve the right to change the route and duration of the tour if deemed advisable for the sake of safety and comfort of the participants. We also reserve the right to discontinue the tour if a participant is seen as a potential danger to him/herself or to others, or is in poor health.
1. Start with thermal underwear and warm socks.
2. If it’s really cold, –20 or below, wear an additional fleece layer on top of your thermals. Another pair of socks, preferably woolly or thermal, will keep your feet warm.
3. Wear pants with thermal lining. Don’t underestimate the importance of a neck warmer or a scarf. Slip into your winter boots and do them up well.
4. Almost done! Throw on your winter jacket, put on a warm hat and thermal gloves. Don’t forget to tuck your gloves into your sleeves and zip your jacket ALL the way up
Nordic Adventures is happy to tell you where you can rent costumes if there is such a need!
You can join an already scheduled safari where we have other participants. This way you only pay for yourself.
Please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) the dates when you would like to join the activities and we will be happy to make it happen.
Riding a snowmobile is easy but you should consider your experience and skills when selecting a safari. Start with easy and short ones (skill levels are pointed out on program description) to get more experience, after which you can choose the longer and more sporty ones if you wish.
The main limits for snowmobiling come from the law: you need to be minimum 15 years old and hold a valid driving license – B category (please check that it is valid in Finland!). For longer safaris, you need to be at least 18 years old or travel together with a family member who is willing to take full responsibility of you during the tour.
